Bible: 1 Corinthians 6:9-20

6:9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived! The sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, passive homosexual partners, 1  practicing homosexuals, 2  6:10 thieves, the greedy, drunkards, the verbally abusive, 3  and swindlers will not inherit the kingdom of God. 6:11 Some of you once lived this way. 4  But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ 5  and by the Spirit of our God.

Flee Sexual Immorality

6:12All things are lawful for me 6 but not everything is beneficial. “All things are lawful for me– but I will not be controlled by anything. 6:13 Food is for the stomach and the stomach is for food, but God will do away with both.” 7  The body is not for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 6:14 Now God indeed raised the Lord and he will raise us by his power. 6:15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Should I take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never! 6:16 Or do you not know that anyone who is united with 8  a prostitute is one body with her? 9  For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.” 10  6:17 But the one united with 11  the Lord is one spirit with him. 12  6:18 Flee sexual immorality! “Every sin a person commits is outside of the body 13 but the immoral person sins against his own body. 6:19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, 14  whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 6:20 For you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God with your body.
