1 Corinthians 6 10.23.16

What stood out in this passage?

 

Why should a believer refuse to take another believer to court (6:1-8)? When have you been tempted to take legal action against someone? What were your motives? What did you learn from this experience?

 

 

How do you feel about judging the world and angels (6:2-3)? What does this tell me about the high view that God holds believers in?

 

G. K. Chesterton, “Men do not differ much about what things they will call evils; they differ enormously about what evils they will call excusable.” Are you guilty of justifying or excusing various sins in your life?

 

When have you excused your sexual immorality in the name of Christian “freedom” (6:12)? What specific justification did I use to appease my conscience? 

 

What is involved in the “one flesh” relationship (6:15)? Is it biblically possible to have casual sex, inconsequential sex, or recreational sex? Why or why not? In The Screwtape Letters, C. S. Lewis says, “The truth is that wherever a man lies with a woman, there, whether they like it or not, a transcendental relation is set up between them which must be eternally enjoyed or eternally endured.” Do you agree with this quote? Why or why not? What are the various consequences of being sexually immoral?
