1 Corinthians 6
The Corinthians must not vex their brethren, in going to law with them:
1 Corinthians 6:1 Dare any of you, hauing a matter against another, goe to law before the vniust, and not before the Saints? 1 Corinthians 6:2 Do ye not know that the Saints shall iudge the world? And if the world shalbe iudged by you, are ye vnworthy to iudge the smallest matters? 1 Corinthians 6:3 Know ye not that we shall iudge Angels? How much more things that perteine to this life? 1 Corinthians 6:4 If then yee haue iudgements of things perteining to this life, set them to iudge who are least esteemed in the Church. 1 Corinthians 6:5 I speake to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man amongst you? no not one that shall bee able to iudge betweene his brethren?
especially under infidels.
1 Corinthians 6:6 But brother goeth to law with brother, & that before the vnbeleeuers? 1 Corinthians 6:7 Now therefore, there is vtterly a fault among you, because yee goe to law one with another: Why doe ye not rather take wrong? Why doe yee not rather suffer your selues to be defrauded? 1 Corinthians 6:8 Nay, you do wrong and defraud, and that your brethren.
The unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 6:9 Know yee not that the vnrighteous shall not inherite the kingdome of God? Be not deceiued: neither fornicatours, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselues with mankinde, 1 Corinthians 6:10 Nor theeues, nor couetous, nor drunkards, nor reuilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are iustified in the Name of the Lord Iesus, and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:12 All things are lawfull vnto mee, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawfull for mee, but I will not bee brought vnder the power of any. 1 Corinthians 6:13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meates: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body [is] not for fornication, but for the Lord: and the Lord for the body. 1 Corinthians 6:14 And God hath both raised vp the Lord, and will also raise vp vs by his owne power.
Our bodies are the members of Christ.
1 Corinthians 6:15 Know yee not that your bodies are the members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.
They must not therefore be defiled.
1 Corinthians 6:16 What, know ye not that he which is ioyned to an harlot, is one body? for two (saith he) shalbe one flesh. 1 Corinthians 6:17 But hee that is ioyned vnto the Lord, is one spirit. 1 Corinthians 6:18 Flee fornication: Euery sinne that a man doeth, is without the body: but he that committeth fornication, sinneth against his owne body.
They are temples of the Holy Ghost.
1 Corinthians 6:19 What, know ye not that your body is the Temple of the holy Ghost [which is] in you, which yee haue of God, and ye are not your owne? 1 Corinthians 6:20 For yee are bought with a price: therefore glorifie God in your body, and in your spirit, which are Gods.
