(THE MESSAGE) I ask you, “Has the Messiah been chopped up in little pieces so we can each have a relic all our own? Was Paul crucified for you? Was a single one of you baptized in Paul’s name?” I was not involved with any of your baptisms—except for Crispus and Gaius—and on getting this report, I’m sure glad I wasn’t. At least no one can go around saying he was baptized in my name. (Come to think of it, I also baptized Stephanas’s family, but as far as I can recall, that’s it.)

Affected Teaching
Here is another case where Paul is thanking God who is the object of his thankfulness.  When somebody states they are thankful without an object of that thanks, then they are not thankful.  These eight modern versions omitted God which is just another attack on God the Father as the recipient of our thankfulness for what He has done in our lives.  “Theo” (God) is definitely written in the Textus Receptus.
