Judge who?

Sexual Immorality

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 meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. 15Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! 16Do you not 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.” 17But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit.
18Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. 19Do 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; 20you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

1 Corinthians 5:11-13
11But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat.

12What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? 13God will judge those outside. “Expel the wicked man from among you.”

It’s funny how quick we are to judge those outside the church, but shy away from judging those we are told to judge, those within the church. Basically I see this as: If you’re a professing Christian and are having sex outside of marriage, then you are living in sin. You need to repent (which means STOP having sex, and ask God for forgiveness), and either get married or remain abstinent until you are married. ps. Don’t forget God hates divorce also so don’t just get hitched so you can do it. 🙂

“If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgement and raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.” Hebrews 10:26,27 —– scary stuff!

Men, don’t give women a reason to fear | Pastor Mark

A wife will be so forgiving of so many things if she actually knows her husband desperately loves their children, that he serves them, that he cares for them, that he’s tender with them, that he’s pastor dad for them. So few children actually have a father. So few of those with fathers have a Christian father, and even fewer actually have a dad who’s doing his job.
