"Everything is permissible for me"--but not everything is beneficial.1 "Everything is permissible for me"--but I will not be mastered by anything.
"Food for the stomach and the stomach for food"--but God will destroy them both.2 The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord,3 and the Lord for the body.
By his power God raised the Lord from the dead,4 and he will raise us also.515
Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself ?6 Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never!
Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, "The two will become one flesh."a717
But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit.818
Flee from sexual immorality.9 All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.1019
Do you not know that your body is a temple11 of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;1220
you were bought at a price.13 Therefore honor God with your body.14
