1 Corinthians 3 Questions

  1.  Paul contrasts the spiritual, the natural and the carnal persons in 1 Corinthians 2:12- 3:4. Write down the characteristics of each.

  2. Are you more like the spiritual or the carnal person you described in the last question. What can you do about this?

  3. Why are factional divisions evidence that a group of people is worldly and unable to understand God’s wisdom (3:5-9)?

  4. Do you think 3:10-17 applies only to Christian teachers or to every Christian? Do all or only some have responsibilities for building the Church? Explain your reasoning. 

  5. 1 Corinthians 3:17 says that we are the Temple of the Holy Spirit. Does this refer to the individual Christian or Christians collectively? How should this affect how the Corinthian and all believers should behave?

  6. What does Paul mean by saying “All things are yours” in 3:21? How was this relevant to the topic at hand- the rebuke for boasting about various leaders?

  7. What does it mean that we are “of Christ” (3:23)? What are the implications for our attitudes and actions?
