1 Corinthians 3:1-2

Divisions in the Church

1But I, brothers
Or  brothers and sisters
could not address you as e  spiritual people, but as f  people of the flesh, as g  infants in Christ.

Hebrews 5:11-14

Warning Against Apostasy

11About this we have much to say, and it is j  hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. 12For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again k  the basic principles of the oracles of God. You need l  milk, not solid food, 13for everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is m  a child. 14But solid food is for n  the mature, for those who have their powers o  of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.
