Bible: 1 Cor 5:1-8

Church Discipline

5:1 It is actually reported that sexual immorality exists among you, the kind of immorality that is not permitted even among the Gentiles, so that someone is cohabiting with 1  his father’s wife. 5:2 And you are proud! 2  Shouldn’t you have been deeply sorrowful instead and removed the one who did this 3  from among you? 5:3 For even though I am absent physically, 4  I am present in spirit. And I have already judged the one who did this, just as though I were present. 5  5:4 When you gather together in the name of our Lord Jesus, 6  and I am with you in spirit, 7  along with the power of our Lord Jesus, 5:5 turn this man over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved 8  in the day of the Lord. 9 

5:6 Your boasting is not good. Don’t you know that a little yeast 10  affects 11  the whole batch of dough? 5:7 Clean out the old yeast so that you may be a new batch of dough – you are, in fact, without yeast. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. 5:8 So then, let us celebrate the festival, not with the old yeast, the yeast of vice and evil, but with the bread without yeast, the bread of sincerity and truth. 12
