1 Corinthians 3 ©
1 Paul sheweth that he could not instruct the Corinthians in the higher doctrines of Christianity because of their carnal mind; 3 this state of mind revealed itself in their factions. 5 The most eminent preachers of the gospel are but instruments employed by God in building his church. 10 Paul hath laid the only true foundation, Christ Jesus; and others must take heed what they build thereon. 16 Christians are God's temple, not to be defiled. 18 Worldly wisdom is foolishness with God. 21 They that are Christ's must not glory in men.
qAccording to the grace of God which is given unto me, as ra wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
xIf any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
aKnow ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
bIf any man 5defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for cthe temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
