Get Church Peopo Dat Like Split Up
10 Eh, my braddahs an sistahs! I stay talk fo Da One In Charge a us guys, az Jesus Christ, wen I beg you guys fo tink da same way, an no split up. Gotta stick togedda! Az how you guys goin know how fo tink da same way, an figga out tings da same way!
11 Some peopo from Sistah Cloe house tell me dat some a you guys stay argue wit each odda.
12 Dis how I figga. Soun jalike you guys talk lidis: One guy tell dis, “Me, I stay tight wit Paul!” Anodda guy tell, “Me, I stay tight wit Apollos!” An anodda guy tell, “Me, I stay tight wit Peter!” An dis odda guy tell, “Me, I stay tight wit Christ!”
13 So, wassup? 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 come my guys, o wat? Not even!
14 I tell God “Mahalo plenny” dat I neva baptize nobody ova dea by you guys. Ony da guys Crispus an Gaius.
15 Dass why nobody ova dea can tell dat dey get baptize fo come Paul guys.
16 —Get one mo ting I no foget: I wen baptize some peopo in Stephen house too. But I foget if I wen baptize odda peopo ova dea by you guys, o not.
17 Eh, you know, wen Christ sen me, no was ony fo baptize! Da main ting he sen me fo do, was fo tell all da Good Kine Stuff Bout Him! An he neva like fo me talk bout him jus fo soun smart. Cuz if I wen jus talk smart kine da way peopo tink, dat goin take away da powa from wat happen wen Christ mahke on top da cross.
Christ Get Powa From God
18 All da stuff we stay tell bout how Christ mahke on top da cross, dat stuff soun stupid to da peopo dat goin come wipe out fo real kine. But fo us guys, he take us outa all da bad kine stuff we stay do. So den, da Christ an da cross story get plenny powa from God fo help us guys.
19 Dass jalike wat Isaiah write inside da Bible befo time:
“All da stuff dat da guys tell
Dat know wat fo do erytime,
Goin all come wipe out.
An all da stuff dat da guys tell
Dat undastan stuff,
Nobody goin know wat dey know bumbye.”
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 make all dem guys look stupid! All da smart guys in dis world tink dey know wat fo do, but God make all dat come jalike notting!
21 You know God, he know wat fo do erytime. 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 good enuff fo know him. God, he figga lidis: Mo betta sen some guys aroun fo tell da peopo bout him, no matta get peopo dat figga da guys he sen kinda pupule fo talk lidat. But God figga dat from da stuff his peopo tell, odda peopo can trus him, an dass how he goin take um outa da bad kine stuff dey stay do.
22 You know, da Jew guys, dey erytime like us guys fo do someting awesome fo show proof dat we get powa from God. An da Greek peopo, dey ony like hear da smart kine stuff bout wat fo do erytime.
23 But us guys dat tell da Good Stuff Bout God, dis wat we tell. We stay tell peopo all ova da place how God wen sen dis Spesho Guy Christ ova hea. We tell how odda guys wen hang um on top one cross fo kill um. Da Jew guys hear all dat, but dey no can handle, cuz dey tink God Spesho Guy no goin mahke fo shua. An da Greek peopo, wen dey hear um, dey tink, “Stupid!”
24 But get odda peopo, some a dem Jew guys an some a dem Greek guys, dey da ones God tell fo come be his peopo. Fo dem, Christ show um dat God get plenny powa an he know wat fo do erytime.
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, my braddahs an sistahs! Fo undastan wat I mean, tink bout wat wen happen wit you guys, da time 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 dat get plenny smarts wit you guys, o get da kine powa fo make odda peopo do wat dey like fo um do. No mo plenny guys wit you guys dat come from one big name ohana.
27 But God wen pick da peopo dat odda peopo from dis world tink dey lolo. Cuz he goin make da smart peopo come shame, dass why. An da peopo dat look jalike dey not strong hea inside dis world, God pick dem, cuz he goin make da strong kine peopo come shame too.
28 He pick da peopo dat no mo big name hea inside dis world, an da kine odda peopo make fun of, an dose dat no mean notting to nobody. God goin use dem fo make da peopo dat tink dey it, come jalike notting.
29 Az why nobody can talk big wen dey stan in front God.
30 You guys know how come you stay tight wit Jesus Christ? Az cuz God like um fo be lidat, dass why! God, he make Jesus da One fo make us guys know wat fo do erytime. An Jesus make us get um right wit God, an stay spesho fo God, an hemo us guys from da powa da bad kine stuff wen get ova us!
31 So den, jalike da Bible tell befo time: “Anybody like talk big, mo betta dey ony talk big bout Da One In Charge erytime, an not talk big bout ony dem!”
