This series is an in-depth study of the book of 1 Corinthians. In the letter, the Apostle Paul is writing to a church that may sound very familiar to the world that we live in today. We pray you will join us for this important study.
The Mortality of Sexual Immorality (1 Corinthians 5:1-8)
Today Pastor Charlie covers the disgusting nature of sin in 1 Corinthians. We may view it as not disgusting, but God is a great and holy God, so His view of sin is not the same as ours. Listen as Charlie explains the nature of sin and how great our savior is.
1 Corinthians 5:1-8 (ESV)
1 It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that even pagans do not tolerate: A man is sleeping with his father’s wife. 2 And you are proud! Shouldn’t you rather have gone into mourning and have put out of your fellowship the man who has been doing this? 3 For my part, even though I am not physically present, I am with you in spirit. As one who is present with you in this way, I have already passed judgment in the name of our Lord Jesus on the one who has been doing this. 4 So when you are assembled and I am with you in spirit, and the power of our Lord Jesus is present, 5 hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord.
6 Your boasting is not good. Don’t you know that a little yeast leavens the whole batch of dough? 7 Get rid of the old yeast, so that you may be a new unleavened batch—as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. 8 Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old bread leavened with malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
