1 Corinthians 1: It’s not as Hard as You Think

Ever wonder why there are so many different denominations? It’s a human thing and it’s nothing new. Paul addressed it in 1 Corinthians during the first century church so don’t feel too out of place! “I appeal to you brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no division among you, But that you be united in the same mind and the same judgement.“ the Christians were quarreling over who they followed.

it’s not about you, your church, your theology, or even being right. It’s about Jesus. It’s about love. It’s about His message and His saving grace and redemption. All we have to do if we
