Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Why was Paul glad that he had NOT personally baptized many Corinthians? (1:13-16)

    • A.

      He wanted to share the ministerial duties with his team.

    • B.

      He only had one change of clothing.

    • C.

      Lest any should say that he baptized in his own name.

      All of the above

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Lest any should say that he baptized in his own name.
    Explanation
    The reason given by Paul for being glad that he had not personally baptized many Corinthians is "Lest any should say that he baptized in his own name."This is mentioned in 1 Corinthians 1:13-16, where Paul addresses the issue of divisions among the Corinthian believers. Some were claiming to follow Paul, others Apollos, and others Peter, which was causing discord within the church. By emphasizing that he had only baptized a few people, Paul sought to minimize the idea that people were being baptized into a particular teacher's following rather than into Christ's name.

Just as a building is carefully constructed with different parts working together to form a whole, the church is made up of diverse members who contribute to its growth and function. This analogy highlights the importance of unity, cooperation, and collaboration within the church community.

      Leaven

    Correct Answer
    A. Leaven
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Leaven. In the passage (5:6-8), Jesus uses the illustration of leaven to show that sin can spread if not dealt with. Leaven is a small amount of yeast that is used to make bread rise. In this context, it represents sin or evil influences that can permeate and corrupt a person or a community if not addressed. Just as a small amount of leaven can leaven the whole lump of dough, a small sin left unchecked can have a widespread negative impact.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Some wise man among them." This is because the verse in question (6:5) suggests that when there is a dispute among brethren, a wise man from within their community should be available to judge and resolve the issue. This implies that the person should have wisdom and understanding to provide a fair judgment.

    Why should a person NOT withhold marital relations from their spouse for long periods of time? (7:3-5)

    • A.

      It is physically harmful

    Correct Answer
    B. Satan could tempt the other partner
    Explanation
    Withholding marital relations from a spouse for long periods of time could potentially tempt the other partner, as stated in 7:3-5. This suggests that sexual intimacy is an important aspect of a healthy marriage and is meant to be a way for spouses to fulfill each other's needs. By abstaining from this, one partner may become vulnerable to temptation from Satan, leading to potential problems in the relationship. Therefore, it is advisable not to withhold marital relations for extended periods.

This means that the wife should strive to resolve any conflicts or issues that led to the separation and work towards rebuilding their relationship.

Therefore, the correct answer is to be reconciled to her husband.
