Lawsuits among Believers

Tools specific to 1Co 6:1

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 6:1

If any of you has a legal dispute against another, do you dare go to court before the unrighteous,[fn] and not before the saints?

Tools specific to 1Co 6:2

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 6:2

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 smallest cases?

Tools specific to 1Co 6:3

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 6:3

Don’t you know that we will judge angels — not to mention ordinary matters?

Tools specific to 1Co 6:4

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 6:4

So if you have cases pertaining to this life, do you select those[fn] who have no standing in the church to judge?

Tools specific to 1Co 6:5

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 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 his brothers?

Tools specific to 1Co 6:6

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 6:6

Instead, believer[fn] goes to court against believer, and that before unbelievers!

Tools specific to 1Co 6:7

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 6:7

Therefore, to have legal disputes against one another is already a moral failure for you. Why not rather put up with injustice? Why not rather be cheated?

Tools specific to 1Co 6:8

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 6:8

Instead, you act unjustly and cheat — and you do this to believers!

Tools specific to 1Co 6:9

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 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 anyone practicing homosexuality,[fn]

Tools specific to 1Co 6:10

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 6:10

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

Tools specific to 1Co 6:11

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 6:11

And some of you used to be like this. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

  
Glorifying God in Body and Spirit

Tools specific to 1Co 6:12

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 6:12

“Everything is permissible for me,”[fn] but not everything is helpful. “Everything is permissible for me,” but I will not be brought under the control of anything.

Tools specific to 1Co 6:13

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 6:13

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

Tools specific to 1Co 6:14

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 6:14

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

Tools specific to 1Co 6:15

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 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!

Tools specific to 1Co 6:16

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 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.

Tools specific to 1Co 6:17

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 6:17

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

Tools specific to 1Co 6:18

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 6:18

Run from sexual immorality! “Every sin a person can commit is outside the body.”[fn] On the contrary, the person who is sexually immoral sins against his own body.

Tools specific to 1Co 6:19

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 6:19

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

Tools specific to 1Co 6:20

Unchecked Copy Box 1Co 6:20

for you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God in your body.[fn]
