What about 1 Cor 2?

In continuation of the 1 Corinthians sermon series in church, it was on chapter 2 today. In looking into the chapter, I have these questions:

After Paul admonished the church in divisions in chapter 1, he moved on in chapter 2 to say that he is coming to them not in lofty words and impressive wisdom. Why?

And he continues the same in chapter 3, not talking to them as spiritual people but as infants. And in chapter 4, he reminds them of who he is and that he is warning them.

In that larger context, what was Paul saying to the Corinthians in chapter 2 and why?

And from all that, what is the teaching for us?

I should make time this week to read up and find out the answers.
