THE FIRST EPISTLE OF PAUL THE APOSTLE TO THE CORINTHIANS

CHAPTER 6 
 

CONTROVERSY BIBLE STUDY

          Itís a great day to share more Daily Bread together. Welcome back to our study of Paulís first letter to the Corinthians. Last time we shared the Word, we talked about immorality. So what happens when youíre the victim of someone elseís immorality?

          Well, ordinarily, people take the accused party to court. That, of course is when worldly matters are concerned. But what about when youíre offended by a fellow Christian? Letís go back to our letter from Paul because the Corinthians were taking one another to court for trivial matters. Paul's advice ...
 

WHAT IS THE CONTROVERSY BIBLE SOURCE AND CONTROVERSY BIBLE PURPOSE AND HOW DOES THE CONTROVERSY BIBLE TRUTH AFFECT YOU?

If any of you has a dispute with another,
do you dare go to court before the unjust (unbelievers)
and not before the saints (believers)?
Donít you know that the saints will judge the world?

Psalms 49:14
... and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning ...
Daniel 7:22
Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
  Revelation 2:26
And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations ...

And if you're worthy of judging the world, are you unable to judge little problems?
Donít you know that we will judge angels
?

(How can that be? Well, namely, bad angels.)

Jude 1:6
And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

           Did you forget that satan is an angel? Have you ever heard of the fallen angels? You can do some interesting research on the fallen angels in The Book of Enoch. Now, Paul goes on:


Doesnít it make even more sense then,
that we should judge things that pertain to this life?
If then you have judgments
(hearings, testimonies, conflicts)
of things pertaining to this life,
let those who are least esteemed in the church judge them.

CONTROVERSY BIBLE WARNING ON CONTROVERSY BIBLE DANGERS AND CONTROVERSY BIBLE CONCERNS

          Why would you want to do that? EXACTLY! You wouldn't. So that would encourage you to settle conflicts for yourselves.

          Paul, still befuddled about the whole idea of brethren taking one another to manís court to judge one another writes:


I speak to your shame.
(Iím ashamed of you, You should be ashamed, This is a shame, What a shame, Shame on you, Shame shame shame.)
Can it be that there isnít a single wise man among all of you (yes, you who will be judging angels) who is capable of judging between his own brethren?
But brother goes to court against brother ... and before the unbelievers no less!
It's wrong that you go to law with one another.
 

          Here comes a doozey! But first I thought Iíd better give you some gentle reminders so you wonít think that Iím bordering on ridiculous here. First of all, nobody ever said that being a Christian was easy. Not even Jesus. Easy, no; rewarding, yes!

           Reminder #1. Letís go back to the Beatitudes for a moment.

Matthew 5:11-12
Blessed are you when men shall revile you and persecute you and say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake: Rejoice and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven.

Notice Jesus didnít say anything about getting justice in this life when those things happen.

          Reminder #2. Now letís skip over to when the Apostles were preaching about Jesus in Jerusalem.

Acts 5:40-41
And when they had called the Apostles, and beaten them, they commanded that they shouldnít speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go. And the Apostles left the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His name.

          You probably noticed that both of those reminders involved attacks against your Christianity, but stick with me here.

          Reminder #3. Next weíre going all the way back to where the wisest man to ever live, king Solomon, wrote:

Proverbs 20:22
Donít say, I will recompense (repay) evil, but wait on the Lord, and He shall save you.

         Alright, now youíre reminded that meek doesnít mean weak. And your first gut reaction to Paulís next sentence will no longer be that vengeance is necessary for survival in life. Ready? Letís continue. Paul says:


Why do you not rather take wrong (Leave it be and not retaliate)?
Why wouldnít you rather allow yourselves to be defrauded (cheated)?
 

CONTROVERSY BIBLE BLESSINGS AND CONTROVERSY BIBLE PROMISES

Paul is asking, Is it better to be adamant about winning a trivial case against your brother, and disgrace the Christian name, or are you so unforgiving that you can't settle even for the CAUSE?


No, you do wrong and cheat,
and you do it to your own brethren!
Donít you know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?

         
           Do you detect a little shaking of Paulís head with a little tsk tsk tsk tsk tsk as he was writing this?

           Ask yourself: Is vengeance more important than your inheritance of Godís Promise? Is it so important to you for nobody to think youíre a fool if you donít get back at someone for some injustice that they committed against you? Do you not believe that vengeance belongs to the Lord?


Make no mistake
: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers,
nor effeminate (homosexuality), nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves,
nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners,
shall inherit the kingdom of God.
And some of you were once guilty of these things,
but you are washed, but you are sanctified,
but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus,
and by the Spirit of our God.


           Now Paul takes a different direction.

 

All things are lawful for me, but all things are not advantageous.
All things are lawful for me,
but I will not be brought under the power of any.
 

The New Testament has made us free from the old law, but we must still remain righteous. We don't let ourselves be controlled by any kind of carnal desires.



Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats:
but God shall destroy both it and them.
Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord;
and the Lord for the body.
And God has both raised up the Lord,
and will also raise up us by His own power.
Donít you know that your bodies are the members of Christ?
 

Don't forget that many Christian ideologies were new to the Gentiles and obviously some of the things they had previously viewed as commonplace have no place in a Christian lifestyle. So Paul is explaining that food was made for the body and the body for food, but the body was not made for fornication ... but now that we are one with Christ, our body is for the Lord.
 

Shall I then take the members of Christ,
and make them the members of an harlot?
God forbid. What? Didnít you know
that he which is joined to an harlot is one body?
For two, God said, shall be one flesh.

Genesis 2:24
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

But he that is joined to the Lord is one spirit.
Flee (avoid) fornication.
Every sin that a man does is outside the body;
but he that commits fornication sins against his own body.
What? Didnít you know that your body is the Temple of the Holy Ghost
which is in you, which you have of God,
and you are not your own?
You are bought with a price:
therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
 

          Thatís a great thing to remember when weíre making our choices in our lives ... Weíre not our own. Youíve been bought with the price of Jesusí life, so know that you owe Him yours, and live accordingly.

          More great lessons ahead in this very informative letter from Paul, so donít miss it, right here in our next Daily Bread.
