It Was More Like American Idol than the Body of Christ

Paul tells the church of Corinth that one of the marks of a child is a certain level of restlessness that leads to a lack of depth – a shallow and self-centered spirituality.  At Corinth, instead of building each other up, gifted personalities took the stage, asserting themselves above others.  It was more like American Idol  than the body of Christ (I Corinthians 3:1-5)
