Get Church Peopo Dat Like Split Up
10 Eh, bruddas an sistas! I talking fo our Boss Jesus Christ wen I beg you guys fo tink da same way, an no split up. Gotta stick togedda, so you guys know how fo tink da same way, an can figga out tings da same way!
11 Some peopo from Sista Cloeʼs house wen tell me dat some a you guys stay make argue wit each odda. 12 Dis how I figga. Sound like you guys stay talking lidis: One guy say dis, “Me, I stick wit Paul!” One nodda guy say, “Me, I stick wit Apollos!” An anodda guy say, “Me, I stick wit Peter!” An dis odda guy go say, “Me, I stick wit Christ!”
13 So, wat? No can split up Christ ohana, you know! Eh! You guys tink was me dat wen go mahke on top da cross fo you guys? No way! You guys tink wen dey baptize you, dat make you guys my guys, o wat? Not even! 14 I tank God dat I neva baptize nobody ova dea by you guys. Ony da guys Crispus an Gaius. 15 Dass why nobody ova dea can say dat dey wen get baptize fo come Paulʼs guys. 16 -- Oh yeah, I rememba dis, I wen baptize some peopo in Stefanas house too. But I no can rememba if I wen baptize odda peopo ova dea by you guys.
17 Eh, you know, wen Christ wen send me, no was ony fo baptize! Da main ting he wen send me fo, was fo tell all da Good Kine Stuff Bout Him! An he neva like me talk bout him jus fo sound smart. Cuz if I wen jus talk smart kine da way peopo tink, dat goin take away da power from wat wen happen wen Christ wen go mahke on top da cross.
Christ Get Power From God
18 All da stuff we telling bout how Christ wen mahke on top da cross, dat stuff sound stupid to da peopo dat stay going wipe out fo real kine. But fo us guys, he taking us outa all da bad kine stuff we stay in. So den, da stuff bout Christ an da cross get plenny power from God fo help us guys. 19 Dass jalike wat Isaiah wen write inside da Bible befo time:
20 So wat den? Wat goin happen to da smart guys? An to da teacha guys dat teach da Rules? An to da guys dat nowdays can talk good an make you tink anodda way? Eh! God wen make all dem guys look stupid! He wen make all da smarts dat come from dis world come jalike notting!
21 You know God, he so smart, he neva let da peopo inside dis world figga how dey can know him fo real kine. Cuz da kine smarts dey get inside dis world, not nuff. God, he figga lidis: mo betta send some guys aroun fo tell da peopo bout him, no matta get peopo dat tink da guys he send kinda crazy fo talk lidat. But God figga dat from da stuff his peopo tell, odda peopo can go trus him, an dass how he goin take um outa da bad kine stuff dey stay doing.
22 You know, da Jewish peopo, dey everytime like us guys fo do someting awesome fo show proof dat we get Godʼs power. An da Greek peopo, dey ony like hear da smart kine stuff dat dey tink az da trut. 23 But us guys dat talk fo God, we stay tell peopo all ova da place how God wen send dis Spesho Guy Christ ova hea, an how odda guys wen hang um on top one cross an kill um. Da Jewish peopo, wen dey hear dat, dey no can handle, cuz dey tink Godʼs Spesho Guy no goin mahke eva. An da Greek peopo, wen dey hear um, dey tink, “Dass stupid!” 24 But get odda peopo, some a dem Jewish peopo an some a dem not Jewish, dey da ones God wen tell fo come be his peopo. Fo dem, Christ show um dat God get plenny power an he stay real smart. 25 Cuz no matta da peopo tink God stupid, he still mo smart den dem. No matta dey tink God not strong, he still mo strong den dem.
26 Eh, bruddas an sistas! Fo undastan wat I mean, tink bout wat wen happen wit you guys wen God wen tell all you guys fo come be his spesho peopo. If you tink da way da peopo inside da world tink, no mo plenny guys wit you guys dat get plenny smarts, o get da kine power fo make odda peopo do wat dey like. No mo plenny guys wit you guys dat come from one ohana wit big name. 27 But God wen pick da peopo dat odda peopo from dis world tink lolo. Cuz he goin make da smart peopo look shame, dass why. An da peopo dat look like dey not strong hea inside dis world, God wen pick dem, cuz he goin make da strong kine peopo look shame too. 28 He wen pick da peopo dat no mo big name hea inside dis world, an da kine dey make fun of, an dose dat no mean notting to nobody. God goin use dem fo make da peopo who tink dey it, come jalike notting. 29 So dat nobody can talk big wen dey stand in front God.
30 You guys know how come you guys stay tight wit Jesus Christ? Cuz God like, dass why! God, he wen make Jesus da One dat can give us guys all his smarts. An Jesus make us guys get um right wit God, an come peopo dat stay spesho fo God, an he cut us guys loose from da power da bad kine stuff get ova us! 31 So den, jalike da Bible wen say befo time: “Anybody like talk big, mo betta dey ony talk big bout da Boss, an not bout demself!”
