Building Up Others

Corinth was a very spiritual church – but it was also a church that judged the spirituality of one another on the basis of certain spiritual gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit.  Some in the church believed that supernatural gifts such as speaking in tongues and prophecy and healing were the marks of the fullness of the Spirit – and that those who could speak in tongues, for example, were spiritually superior and had more of the Holy Spirit than those who did not.  Others in the church – those not speaking in tongues, for example – felt inferior and resented being regarded as second class citizens in the church body – or perhaps some found other reasons for feeling superior.  In this chapter Paul addresses Spiritual Gifts and how they should be used.
