1 Corinthians 3, 3

1 Corinthians 3, 3

3 for you are still fleshly. For since there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not fleshly, and are you not walking like mere men? 1 Corinthians 3:3

As we said earlier that we were going to hit another word of flesh, “Fleshly”.  Earlier they were living the life of pleasure but here the meaning gets deeper… and he mixes it with the word jealousy and strife(quarrels)… Hmm ‘zealous for their quarrels’ that their leader is the coolest leader. Have we seen this in the 21st century? I think so.  We all need to learn from these Corinthian believers and grow up.
