It is disappointing that the type of divisions Paul was addressing in the Corinthian church can still easily be seen in churches today. Celebrity pastors and culture in the church, gender-based hierarchies, reserved seating and car parking, barista coffee for the rich and instant coffee for the poor. The more trivial of these examples sadly belie the deeper issues of division in modern Christendom across denominational and theological lines. One can only wonder about the stern rebuke that a contemporary epistle would contain for the segmented church on view in our cities today.
