First Corinthians, ONE in CHRIST

by Dr. Robert Bryant

One of the most important epistles in the New Testament is I Corinthians. A letter written by the apostle Paul to the Christian congregation in Corinth. He was responding to a message that the congregation, which he had previously founded, was divided by quarreling among themselves. How does Paul address the issues raised? What does he suggest is the answer to resolving conflict within the church?
