1 Corinthians 1
After saluting the church at Corinth, and thanking God for his grace toward them, Paul exhorteth them to unity, and reproveth their dissensions. The plain doctrine of the gospel, however foolish in the eyes of the world, is the power and wisdom of God to the salvation of believers. God, to take away human boasting, hath not called the wise, the mighty, the noble; but the foolish, the weak, the despised among men. Christ is our wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption.
