1 Corinthians 5:1-8

Immoral Church Members

1 It is widely reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and the kind of sexual immorality that is not even condoneda among the Gentiles-a man is living with his father's wife.
2 And you are inflated with pride, instead of filled with grief so that he who has committed this act might be removed from among you.
3 For though absent in body but present in spirit, I have already decided about him who has done this thing as though I were present.
4 In the name of our Lord Jesus, when you are assembled, along with my spirit and with the power of our Lord Jesus,
5 turn that one over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the Day of the Lord.
6 Your boasting is not good. Don't you know that a little yeast permeates the whole batch of dough?
7 Clean out the old yeast so that you may be a new batch, since you are unleavened. For Christ our Passoverb has been sacrificed.c
8 Therefore, let us observe the feast, not with old yeast, or with the yeast of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
