1 Corinthians 6
Having dealt with the problem of factions in the church (1:1-4:21), Paul turns to the problem of incest between a member of the church and his stepmother, and exhorts the church to exercise corporate discipline by removing the offender from their fellowship until he repents (5:1-13). The third problem is that of litigation between believers, and Paul instructs them to settle their differences among themselves without resorting to the civil courts (6:1-8). The fourth problem Paul addresses in this epistle is that of sexual immorality (6:9-20). He argues that since the believer’s body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, we must flee immorality and glorify God in our bodies.
