The First Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians      12: 3-7, 12-13

12:3 Because of this, I would have you know that no one speaking in the Spirit of God utters a curse against Jesus. And no one is able to say that Jesus is Lord, except in the Holy Spirit.
12:4 Truly, there are diverse graces, but the same Spirit.
12:5 And there are diverse ministries, but the same Lord.
12:6 And there are diverse works, but the same God, who works everything in everyone.
12:7 However, the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one toward what is beneficial.
12:12 For just as the body is one, and yet has many parts, so all the parts of the body, though they are many, are only one body. So also is Christ.
12:13 And indeed, in one Spirit, we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Gentiles, whether servant or free. And we all drank in the one Spirit.
