"The Structural-Functional Analysis
of the Christian Church:
I CORINTHIANS 12:12, 23-27
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members,
and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ."
23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable,
upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts
have more abundant comeliness.
24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together,
having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked:
25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should
have the same care one for another.
26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it;
or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
