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.
 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
 For the body is not one member, but many.
 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.
"If the body of 1Cor 12 is extant then so are the gifts and we should ask the mid-Acts people to supply us with the gifts that enable the body of 1Cor 12 to even exist." Dr. Stewart told several mistruths. What his logic for saying that the gifts must be around today just because the spiritual body of Christ does? Why would MADs have to have gifts, not everyone in the Acts period had them. Why did Dr. Stewart say the gifts allowed the body to exist? He made that up. The first time the Corinthians are called "members of Christ" it is in the context of being joined unto the Lord as one spirit and being the temple of the Holy Ghost (1 Cor. 6:15). The second reference to the Corinthians being "one body" is by partaking of Christ's death (1 Cor. 10:17, see Rom. 6:3-4, Gal. 2:20). But some how the gifts are the cause of the body? The body in 1 Corinthians 12:12-13 is Christ and the Spirit has baptized the converts into it. Dr. Stewart made no sense the entire message. )
