First Letter to the Corinthians 1:1-3 Paul, called to be an apostle of Christ Jesus by the Will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, to the Church of God that is in Corinth, to you who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be holy, with all those everywhere who call upon the Name of our LORD Jesus Christ, their LORD and ours. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the LORD Jesus Christ.
First Letter to the Corinthians 1: 10 I urge you, brothers, in the Name of our LORD Jesus Christ, that all of you agree in what you say, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and in the same purpose.
This part of the letter to the Corinthians addresses a problem in the community where they were filing lawsuits against one another for misdeeds, Paul urged them not to.
First Letter to the Corinthians 6: 7-11 Now indeed [then] it is, in any case, a failure on your part that you have lawsuits against one another. Why not rather put up with injustice? Why not rather let yourselves be cheated? Instead, you inflict injustice and cheat, and this to brothers. Do you not know that the unjust will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators nor idolators nor adulterers nor boy prostitutes nor practicing homosexuals nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor robbers will inherit the Kingdom of God. That is what some of you used to be; but now you have had yourselves washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the Name of the LORD Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
The next two letters contain no references to the holy Name.
