Sexual Immorality Defiles the Church

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:1 - It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that is not tolerated even among pagans, for a man has his father’s wife.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:2 - And you are arrogant! Ought you not rather to mourn? Let him who has done this be removed from among you.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:3 - For though absent in body, I am present in spirit; and as if present, I have already pronounced judgment on the one who did such a thing.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:4 - When you are assembled in the name of the Lord Jesus and my spirit is present, with the power of our Lord Jesus,

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:5 - you are to deliver this man to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord.[fn]

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:6 - Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:7 - Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:8 - Let us therefore celebrate the festival, not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:9 - I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people—

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:10 - not at all meaning the sexually immoral of this world, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:11 - But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler—not even to eat with such a one.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:12 - For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church[fn] whom you are to judge?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:13 - God judges[fn] those outside. “Purge the evil person from among you.”
