1 Corinthians 6

Lawsuits among Believers

[If] any of you has a grievance against another, how dare he go to law before the unrighteous [instead of] before the saints! Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if you are to judge the world, are you not competent [ to judge ] trivial cases? Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more the things of this life! So if you need to settle everyday matters, do you appoint [as judges] those of no standing in the church? I say this to your shame. Is there really no one among you wise [enough] to arbitrate between his brothers? Instead, [one] brother goes to law against [another] , and this in front of unbelievers! The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you {are} thoroughly defeated already. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated? Instead, you yourselves cheat and do wrong, even [against your own] brothers!

Members of Christ

Do you not know that [the] wicked will not inherit [the] kingdom of God? {Do} not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who submit to or perform homosexual acts, 10  nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor verbal abusers, nor swindlers, will inherit [the] kingdom of God. 11  And that [is what] some [of] you were. But 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  “Everything is permissible for me,” but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible for me,” but I will not be mastered by anything. 13  “ - Food for the stomach and the stomach for food,” but God will destroy them both. The body [is] not [intended] for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14  By His power God raised the Lord {from the dead} , and He will raise us [also] . 15  Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite [them] with a prostitute? Never! 16  Or don’t you know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one [with her] in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.”
Genesis 2:24
17  But he who unites himself with the Lord is one [with Him] [in] spirit.

The Temple of the Holy Spirit

18  Flee from sexual immorality. Every [other] sin a man can commit is outside [his] body, but he who sins sexually sins against [his] own body. 19  Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit [who is] in you, whom you have [received] from God? You are not your own; 20  you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God with your body.
