In chapter 3 of 1 Corinthians, we consider the meaning of two words that Paul coins being that of “spiritual” or “carnal.” The Corinthians had a problem from Paul’s point of view because they understood the kingdom from a metric much smaller than the measure God uses. They were choosing one teacher over another and setting up camps between them which Paul carefully and resolutely tears down as we should likewise allow to happen if we are thinking such things today.
