DescriptionThere is a division within the Corinthian Church in Corinth, which the Apostle Paul's (an apostle of Jesus Christ) was made aware of after receiving letters from the household of Chloe's and other church members. Paul feels responsible for the Corinthian Church members because during a visit, which lasted two years, Paul had converted its member to Christianity. Paul is told that there is great confusion over a letter he had previously wrote to the Corinthians dealing with immorality and idolatry specifically; idol meat and the pollution of idols, and the total misunderstanding of the guidelines in this letter pertaining to marriage against fornication and the separation from immoral men, along with misinterpretation of Paul's explanations of the cross, resurrection and the coming of Christ. This along with new issues caused by group distinction (follower's) and some members of the church having received the spiritual gift of tongues, which made them feel superior, because others in the church hadn't, are now major problems, that the church members are asking Paul to give them a answer and guidance to. It is in this responding letter 1st Corinthians that Paul deals with them specifically in Chapters 12-14. Also in this paper I will answer the question of whether the Modern Pentecostals of today are living by and following the Pauline Doctrines?
