Will you please explain your understanding of this scripture?

It does read "cocky".
You're right.
It doesn't.
I'll edit.
Thank you.

Re: More over-reacting to the "Light Doctrine"

Well, I made a statement. You challenged it, I responded, you responded...

I have never been described as cocky BUT I admitted that the post in question was cocky. Thank you for calling me on it

I am just very, very confident in my understanding of what Paul was getting at in the scriptures I referenced.

If you have another way of interpreting those scriptures, will you please explain?

Re: More over-reacting to the "Light Doctrine"

The general consensus is that the people were divided over the cult of personality. That is what it looks like per the text. Some preferred Apollos, some Cephas, some Paul.
IMO, it is possible that it was an ethnic divide.

But the Bible is clearly talking about the ways these men baptized these new Christians.

One cannot read this section of scripture and do away with what is being said about the different faithful men and the differences in their baptisms.

Re: More over-reacting to the "Light Doctrine"

The Apostle Paul addresses water baptism specifically.
