The Greeks were proud of their philosophy and education, but they were quite immoral. The church at Corinth, founded by the apostle Paul on his second missionary journey, became highly influenced by the sin that surrounded them. Paul penned 1 Corinthians to talk directly about the sinful situation that threatened to destroy the church, and chapter 11 begins with this straightforward words, “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.” The chapter continues with teaching of Communion, continuing to demand separation from evil associations. Throughout this letter the apostle’s desire to reach his generation and world with the Gospel shines through gloriously. What a wonderful testimony for us today!
