Everything is allowable to me, but not everything is profitable. Everything is allowable to me, but to nothing will I become a slave.
Food of all kinds is meant for the stomach, and the stomach is meant for food, and God will cause both of them to perish. Yet the body does not exist for the purpose of fornication, but for the Master's service, and the Master exists for the body;
and as God by His power raised the Master to life, so He will also raise us up.
Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them the members of a prostitute? No, indeed.
Or do you not know that a man who has to do with a prostitute is one with her in body? For God says, "The two shall become one."
But he who is in union with the Master is one with Him in spirit.
Flee from fornication. Any other sin that a human being commits lies outside the body; but he who commits fornication sins against his own body.
Or do you not know that your bodies are a sanctuary of the Holy Spirit who is within you--the Spirit whom you have from God?
And you are not your own, for you have been redeemed at infinite cost. Therefore glorify God in your bodies.
