1 Corinthians 6 (ESV)
1 When one of you has a grievance against another,
dare go to law
before the unrighteous instead of the saints?
2 Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world?
And if the world is to be judged by you,
are you incompetent to try trivial cases?
3 Do you not know that we are to judge angels?
How much more, then, matters pertaining to this life!
4 So if you have such cases,
why do you lay them before those who have no standing in the church?
5 I say this to your shame.
Can it be that there is no one among you wise enough to settle a dispute between the brothers,
6 but brother goes to law against brother, and that before unbelievers?
7 To have lawsuits at all with one another is already a defeat for you.
Why not rather suffer wrong?
Why not rather be defrauded?
8 But you yourselves wrong and defraud—even your own brothers!
9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?
Do not be deceived:
neither the sexually immoral,
nor men who practice homosexuality,
10 nor thieves,
nor the greedy,
will inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you.
you were washed,
you were sanctified,
you were justified
in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ
and by the Spirit of our God.
12 “All things are lawful for me,”
but not all things are helpful.
“All things are lawful for me,”
but I will not be dominated by anything.
13 “Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food”—
and God will destroy both one and the other.
is not meant for sexual immorality,
but for the Lord,
and the Lord for the body.
14 And God raised the Lord
and will also raise us up by his power.
15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ?
Shall I then take
the members of Christ
and make them members of a prostitute? Never!
16 Or do you not know
that he who is joined to a prostitute
becomes one body with her?
For, as it is written, “The two will become one flesh.”
he who is joined to the Lord
becomes one spirit with him.
18 Flee from sexual immorality.
Every other sin a person commits is outside the body,
but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.
19 Or do you not know
that your body is a temple
of the Holy Spirit within you,
whom you have from God?
You are not your own,
20 for you were bought with a price.
So glorify God in your body.
