Question: The four clicks I'm of Paul, I'm of Appollas, I'm of Cephas, and I'm of Christ... I'm assuming the I'm of Paul is those who have preacher religion (first pastor) I'm of Apollas (those who have itching ears, he was ellegant in speach), I'm of Cephas (the Jewish people in the church), I'm of Christ(super saints self-rightious ones)... So the question is, did'nt this church have one pastor?

Answer: Paul and his church planting team founded this assembly (Acts 18:1-8). Later on Apollos came by to strengthen the believers with his teaching and preaching (Acts 19:1). There is no evidence that Peter ever visited Corinth, but he may have. And hopefully Jesus Christ was the focal point of everything the Corinthian church did (1 Corinthians 3:10). The problem in Corinth was that the believers were immature and disunited (see 1 Corinthians 1:10 and 3:1-3). One way this was evident was by these factions among the believers. Paul never mentioned a pastor in Corinth and since we know that his practice was to 'appoint elders in every church,' there is no reason to assume that there was just one pastor in Corinth (see Acts 14:23).
