Similar to ancient Corinthians, many of today’s ministries are desperately attempting to market their gospel in resonating ways so that the world would find it acceptable. This is in contrast to following the leading of the Holy Spirit as ministration is seen as an end to convey a gospel that is acceptable to the church. As explained by Wommack (1991), in his commentary Paul’s main purpose in writing the first epistle was to correct the carnality that went on to damage the unity of believers. Sizemore (2012) supports that argument by claiming that divisions stem from carnality because it turns people against each other. Today, the various modes of preaching and differences in propagating the gospel have made believers question if their denomination is faulty making them unable to be committed believers. Sizemore (2012) believes that division brings about carnality. Paul in the early church encourages the Corinthians to be united and not to place the foundation of their faith on those ministering the word but on Jesus Christ. He asserts this by saying, “For no other foundation can be laid other than that of Jesus Christ” (1 Corinthians 3:11)
