I Corinthians 1:10 ” I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought. “

There was Church division in Corinth…some followed Apollos, some Peter, and some Paul.  All three were Godly men…all three were preaching the Gospel.  So where could there be the disagreement?  Apollos was an Alexandrian Jew that was converted to Christianity and  tutored by Aquila and Priscilla in areas of the faith he was ignorant of.  While Peter was one of the original twelve Disciples that had witnessed firsthand the work of Jesus.  Finally there was Paul, a Jew and persecutor of the Christians until that fateful day on the road to Damascus  when the Lord confronted him.  All three were passionate about the Lord and the desire to evangelize.  But they all came from different backgrounds and different life experiences, and their preaching styles showed it.   Thus Paul exhorted the Believers to be joined together in Christ and the Gospel, not divided apart by man and subtle nuances.
