Saint Paul the Apostle of Jesus the Christ. It has become a common practice to take the epistles of Paul out of the context of the Gospel of th kingdom preached by Christ. People have even taken Paul out of the context of what Paul was preaching by picking bits and pieces of what Paul taught.

Collection by Saints

1 Now concerning the collection[1] for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. 2 Upon the first [day] of the week[2] let every one of you lay by him in store[3], as [God] hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings[1] when I come. 3 And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality[4] unto Jerusalem. 4 And if it be meet that I go also, they shall go with me.

Understanding the difference between the Corban of Christ as opposed to the Corban of the Pharisees is important.
Understanding the Christian conflict, Pure Religion and what Covetous practices were and how they made you merchandise and curse children are also essential to true seeking of the kingdom.
Paul had brought Stephanas and his whole house to Christ's network. [5] We know that Stephanas, Fortunatus and Achaicus provided important aid to the network in Corinth when there was a shortage and need.[6]
Because these networks were often able to sustain themselves in difficult times they could be tempted by their self sufficiency to become to independent and allow divisions to form.
Israel had feared the same with the tribe of Reuben "beyond Jordan on the east"[7] because they built what seemed to be an independent Altar for Daily ministration.[8]
Reuben remained a part of the network of Altars of sacrifice because they built an altar to share with the rest of Israel. [9]
Paul is saying if we come in the "name of our Lord Jesus Christ" which was the character of Christ according to his virtuous nature of service and sacrifice, and Forgiveness through His Love and mercy, then there should be no divisions among you and we all speak the same thing, being "perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment". 1 Corinthians 1:10
Are you setting the table of the Lord through charity?
Is your sacrifice or the Corban of the Pharisees?
Are you going to live by force or by charity which is love?
Without the Corban of Christ can the word of God take effect? Can we expect the grace[4] of the Lord?

International Charity

5 ¶ Now I will come unto you, when I shall pass through Macedonia: for I do pass through Macedonia. 6 And it may be that I will abide, yea, and winter with you, that ye may bring me on my journey whithersoever I go. 7 For I will not see you now by the way; but I trust to tarry a while with you, if the Lord permit. 8 But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost. 9 For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.

Letter of Credence

10 ¶ Now if Timotheus come, see that he may be with you without fear: for he worketh the work of the Lord, as I also do. 11 Let no man therefore despise him: but conduct him forth in peace, that he may come unto me: for I look for him with the brethren. 12 As touching our brother Apollos, I greatly desired him to come unto you with the brethren: but his will was not at all to come at this time; but he will come when he shall have convenient time.

addicted to the ministry of the saints

13 ¶ Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong. 14 Let all your things be done with charity. 15 I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted[10] themselves to the ministry[11] of the saints,) 16 That ye submit yourselves[12] unto such, and to every one that helpeth with us, and laboureth. 17 I am glad of the coming of Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus: for that which was lacking on your part they have supplied. 18 For they have refreshed my spirit and yours: therefore acknowledge ye them that are such.

love not the Lord

19 ¶ The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house. 20 All the brethren greet you. Greet ye one another with an holy kiss. 21 The salutation of me Paul with mine own hand. 22 If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema[13] Maranatha[14]. 23 The grace[4] of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. 24 My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen. « The first epistle to the Corinthians was written from Philippi by Stephanas and Fortunatus and Achaicus and Timotheus. »
