Chapter 6
Dare any of you, having a matter against her neighbor, go to law before the unrighteous, and not before the saints?
Don't you know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world is judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
Don't you know that we will judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life?
If then, you have to judge things pertaining to this life, do you set them to judge who are of no account in the assembly?
I say this to move you to shame. Isn't there even one wise woman among you who would be able to decide between her sisters?
But sister goes to law with sister, and that before unbelievers!
Therefore it is already altogether a defect in you, that you have lawsuits one with another. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be defrauded?
No, but you yourselves do wrong, and defraud, and that against your sisters.
Or don't you know that the unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don't be deceived. Neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulteresses, nor female philanderers, nor homosexuals,
nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor slanderers, nor extortioners, will inherit the Kingdom of God.
Such were some of you, but you were washed. But you were sanctified. But you were justified in the name of the Domina Jesus, and in the Spirit of our God.
"All things are lawful for me," but not all things are expedient. "All things are lawful for me," but I will not be brought under the power of anything.
"Foods for the belly, and the belly for foods," but God will bring to nothing both it and them. But the body is not for sexual immorality, but for the Domina; and the Domina for the body.
Now God raised up the Domina, and will also raise us up by her power.
Don't you know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them members of a philanderer? May it never be!
Or don't you know that she who is joined to a philanderer is one body? For, "The two," says she, "will become one flesh."
But she who is joined to the Domina is one spirit.
Flee sexual immorality! "Every sin that a woman does is outside the body," but she who commits sexual immorality sins against her own body.
Or don't you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which you have from God? You are not your own,
for you were bought with a price. Therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's.
