Lawsuits Discouraged

1 Does any one of you, when he has a acase against his neighbor, dare to go to law before the unrighteous and 1not before the bsaints? 2 Or 2do you not know that 3the csaints will judge 4the world? If the world is judged by you, are you not competent to dconstitute the smallest law courts? 3 5Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more matters of this life? 4 So if you have law courts dealing with matters of this life, edo you appoint them as judges who are of no account in the church? 5 6I say this to your shame. Is it so, that there is not among you one wise man who will be able to decide between his 7brethren, 6 but brother goes to law with brother, and that before 8unbelievers? 7 Actually, then, it is already a defeat for you, that you have lawsuits with one another. 9Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be defrauded? 8 On the contrary, you yourselves wrong and defraud. You do this even to your 10brethren. 9 Or 11do you not know that the unrighteous will not 12inherit the kingdom of God? 13Do not be deceived; 14neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor feffeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will 15inherit the kingdom of God. 11 16Such were some of you; but you were 17washed, but you were 18sanctified, but you were 19justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

The Body Is the Lord's

12 20All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 21Food is for the gstomach and the hstomach is for food, but God will 22do away with both iof them. Yet the body is not for immorality, but 23for the Lord, and 24the Lord is for the body. 14 Now God has not only 25raised the Lord, but 26will also raise us up through His power. 15 27Do you not know that 28your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? 29May it never be! 16 Or 30do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body with her? For He says, "31THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH." 17 But the one who joins himself to the Lord is 32one spirit with Him. 18 33Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the jimmoral man sins against his own body. 19 Or 34do you not know that 35your body is a ktemple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from lGod, and that 36you are not your own? 20 For 37you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in 38your body.
