Why Some Remain Babies:

    • Paul could not “speak to” the Corinthians as “spiritual” people (3:1)
    • Many preachers preach fluff – no doctrine, never challenge people to objectively analyze passages
    • Many class teachers don’t study to be able to evoke thought & interest.

1 Corinthians 3:1-9

Why Some Remain Babies:

  • They Are Perpetually Treated Like Babies:
    • Spiritual brethren often get into the habit of continuing to handle carnal brethren with “kid gloves.”
    • Yes, we are to “bear with the scruples of the weak” (Rom. 15:1), and “uphold the weak” (1 Thess. 5:14), but “weak” is not “carnal!”

Spiritual Brethren:

  • Glory In The Lord (1:31), Not In Men (3:21).
  • Know Their Place (1 Cor. 3:9)
