1Corinthians 4:14 I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you.
15 For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.
16 Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me.
When this section of Corinthians is first considered it would seem as if Paul is referring to himself as the father and the Corinthians as the children. However, when reading it in context with the preface of 1Co 1:3 "Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. " , Is it grammatically incorrect to read the sons and children as beloved children to Paul (endeared) to him but being Children of God through the seed of the Gospel and not Children of Paul?
