1 Corinthians 6
The Corinthians must not vex their brethren, in going to law with them:
1 Corinthians 6:1 Dare any of you, having a matter against his neighbour, go to law before the unrighteous, and not before the saints? 1 Corinthians 6:2 Or know ye not that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world is judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 1 Corinthians 6:3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more, things that pertain to this life? 1 Corinthians 6:4 If then ye have to judge things pertaining to this life, do ye set them to judge who are of no account in the church? 1 Corinthians 6:5 I say [this] to move you to shame. Is it so, that there cannot be [found] among you one wise man, who shall be able to decide between his brethren,
especially under infidels.
1 Corinthians 6:6 but brother goeth to law with brother, and that before unbelievers? 1 Corinthians 6:7 Nay, already it is altogether a defect in you, that ye have lawsuits one with another. Why not rather take wrong? why not rather be defrauded? 1 Corinthians 6:8 Nay, but ye yourselves do wrong, and defraud, and that [your] brethren.
The unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 6:9 Or know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with men, 1 Corinthians 6:10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye were washed, but ye were sanctified, but ye were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:12 All things are lawful for me; but not all things are expedient. All things are lawful for me; but I will not be brought under the power of any. 1 Corinthians 6:13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall bring to nought both it and them. But the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body: 1 Corinthians 6:14 and God both raised the Lord, and will raise up us through his power.
Our bodies are the members of Christ.
1 Corinthians 6:15 Know ye not that your bodies are members of Christ? shall I then take away the members of Christ, and make them members of a harlot? God forbid.
They must not therefore be defiled.
1 Corinthians 6:16 Or know ye not that he that is joined to a harlot is one body? for, The twain, saith he, shall become one flesh. 1 Corinthians 6:17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. 1 Corinthians 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
They are temples of the Holy Ghost.
1 Corinthians 6:19 Or know ye not that your body is a temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have from God? and ye are not your own; 1 Corinthians 6:20 for ye were bought with a price: glorify God therefore in your body.
