1 Corinthians 4:18–21; 1 Corinthians 5:2; 1 Corinthians 11:17; 1 Corinthians 11:22; 1 Corinthians 15:36

18 Some are rarrogant, sas though I were not coming to you. 19 But tI will come to you soon, if the Lord wills, and I will find out not the talk of these arrogant people but their power. 20 For uthe kingdom of God does not consist in talk but in power. 21 What do you wish? vShall I come to you with a rod, or with love in a spirit of gentleness?


And yyou are arrogant! Ought you znot rather to mourn? Let him who has done this be removed from among you.


The Lord’s Supper

17 But in the following instructions I do not commend you, because when you come together it is not for the better but for the worse.


22 What! Do you not have houses to eat and drink in? Or do you despise vthe church of God and whumiliate those who have nothing? What shall I say to you? Shall I commend you in this? No, I will not.


36 You foolish person! eWhat you sow does not come to life unless it dies.
