gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working
of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits,
to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation
of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things,

it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are
all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain

||1 Cor 10:11:
"Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they
were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages
while you were made a spectacle both by reproaches and tribulations,
and partly while you became companions of those who were so treated."
||1 Cor 4:9:
"For I think that God has displayed us, the apostles, last,
as men condemned to death; for we have been made a spectacle to
the world, both to angels and to men."
the righteous shall live by faith; but if anyone draws back, my

"Let not him who eats despise him who does not eat, and let
not him who does not eat judge him who eats; for God has received
