Lawsuits among Believers
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 6:1 -

If any of you has a dispute against another, how dare you take it to court before the unrighteous,[fn] and not before the saints?

Or don’t you know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world is judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the trivial cases?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 6:3 -

Don’t you know that we will judge angels ​— ​how much more matters of this life?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 6:4 -

So if you have such matters, do you appoint as your judges those who have no standing in the church?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 6:5 -

I say this to your shame! Can it be that there is not one wise person among you who is able to arbitrate between fellow believers?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 6:6 -

Instead, brother goes to court against brother, and that before unbelievers!

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 6:7 -

As it is, to have legal disputes against one another is already a defeat for you. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 6:8 -

Instead, you yourselves do wrong and cheat ​— ​and you do this to brothers and sisters!

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 6:9 -

Don’t you know that the unrighteous will not inherit God’s kingdom? Do not be deceived: No sexually immoral people, idolaters, adulterers, or males who have sex with males,[fn]

no thieves, greedy people, drunkards, verbally abusive people, or swindlers will inherit God’s kingdom.

Glorifying God in Body and Spirit
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 6:12 -

“Everything is permissible for me,” but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible for me,” but I will not be mastered by anything.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 6:13 -

“Food is for the stomach and the stomach for food,” and God will do away with both of them. However, the body is not for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 6:14 -

God raised up the Lord and will also raise us up by his power.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 6:15 -

Don’t you know that your bodies are a part of Christ’s body? So should I take a part of Christ’s body and make it part of a prostitute? Absolutely not!

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 6:16 -

Don’t you know that anyone joined to a prostitute is one body with her? For Scripture says, The two will become one flesh.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 6:17 -

But anyone joined to the Lord is one spirit with him.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 6:18 -

Flee sexual immorality! Every other sin[fn] a person commits is outside the body, but the person who is sexually immoral sins against his own body.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 6:19 -

Don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own,

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 6:20 -

for you were bought at a price. So glorify God with your body.[fn]
