1 Corinthians 6:13-15, 17-20:

1 Corinthians 6:13-15, 17-20 The body is for the Lord. You are members of Christ.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The body is not meant for immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I therefore take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never! 17 But he who is united to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. 18 Shun immorality. Every other sin which a man commits is outside the body; but the immoral man sins against his own body. 19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

The English translations of the works of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI) who also uses the RSV-CE or its Second Edition.

Some of the Corinthians Christian were using the services of prostitutes because they reasoned everybody else is doing it. Like Mother used to say, “If everyone else was jumping off a cliff, would you follow them?” In this reading Paul reminds them that their bodies are united with Christ and they are members of the Body of Christ therefore how they use their bodies becomes eternally important.

Through out the centuries marriages, families and other relationships have been destroyed by infidelity. How can you call yourself a Christian while violating God’s Commandments? Violation of the Commandments is both sinful (Rom. 6:6) and divisive. For the Pagan cultures idolatry and sexual immorality were closely linked. The Spirit of God lives within each and every Christian and makes each Christian’s body a temple just like a church wherein the Spirit resides. C orinth T emple of Apollo

PowerPoint Presentation:

“You are not your own.” As with other gifts from God (4:2, 7), Christians are to exercise responsible stewardship over their bodies. Certainly no rational human being would defile a church. Why then would you defile your body with sexual sins? “20 you were bought with a price.” is a term borrowed from the slave trade (Rom. 6:17-18) and you were ransomed with the blood of Christ (Eph. 1:7) .
