Everything about the church in Corinth was scandalous.

They set themselves against the person who planted the church. They celebrated sexual habits that were condemned by people outside the church. They gathered together in worship on Sundays and argued each other in lawsuits on weekdays. Tongues were wagging in divisive chatter, this way and that. Even their eating habits were layered with confusion and chaos. People were divided over gifts & abilities given for the unity of the church. Some could not accept Jesus was risen from the dead.

Yet, the most scandalous thing in Corinth was the scandal of grace. Corinth is an example of how the grace of God can reach and redeem people no one believed could be reached or redeemed.
