1 Corinthians 6

Dare any of you, having a matter against another, be judged by the unrighteous, and not by the saints? Do you not know that the saints are to judge with world? And if the world is to be judged by you, are you unworthy to decide your petty causes? Do you not know that we are to judge messengers? Why not, then, things pertaining to this life? If, then, you have the cognizance of such matters, why do you set those to judge who are of no account in the congregation? For shame to you I say it ! So, then, there is not among you a wise man; not even one, who shall be able to decide between his brethren! But brother with brother is judged, and that by infidels! Now, therefore, indeed, there is plainly a fault in you, that you have law-suits with one another. Why do you not rather bear the being defrauded? But you injure and defraud; and that, too, your own brethren.

Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor catamites, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor misers, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you; but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified, by the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

12 All meats are lawful for me to eat, but all are not proper: all meats are lawful for me to eat; but I will not be enslaved by any meat. 13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats; however, God will destroy both it and them. Now, the body was not made for uncleanness, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body: 14 and God has both raised the Lord, and will raise up us by his own power. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall, I, then, take the members of Christ and make them the members of a harlot? By no means. 16 What! do you not know that he who is strongly attached to a harlot is one body? for he says, "The two shall be one flesh." 17 But he, who is strongly attached to the Lord, is one spirit. 18 Flee uncleanness. Every sin which a man commits, is without the body: but he who commits uncleanness, sins against his own body. 19 What! do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have from God? 20 Besides, you are not your own; for you are bought with a price: therefore, with your body glorify God.
