1 Corinthians in a Sentence

Matthew Malcolm has suggested the following as 1 Corinthians in a sentence.

Those in Corinth who consider the foolish (4:10), the defrauded (6:7-8), the obligated (7:5), the weak (8:7), the enslaved (9:19), the restricted (10:23), the subject (11:3), the unimpressive (12:15), the restrained (14:28), and the dead (15:12) – that is, the cruciform – to have no portion with God have fundamentally misunderstood the God who raises the dead.

I am not sure I see the book this way, but I appreciate Matthew's attempt to capture the book in a single sentence.
