First Corinthians 5 is quite a bit to take in. As you read this chapter, be careful. You may need to read a few commentaries to gain clarification for some of the word usage. Paul talks about “judging,” but we know Jesus taught us to not “judge.” You may need to gain an understanding of the two different meanings of “judge” in those two passages of the Bible.
Bottom line, we must be careful of who we allow to be in our midst. A person who refuses to live as Christ taught us and God called us is a threat to our congregation. What is the best way to deal with that person? Here’s today’s Bible verse. Enjoy.
1 Corinthians 5:1-2
It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that even pagans do not tolerate: A man is sleeping with his father’s wife. 2 And you are proud! Shouldn’t you rather have gone into mourning and have put out of your fellowship the man who has been doing this?
