Paul: Sexual Purity



9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators [πόρνος pornos], nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind [arsenokoitēs: sodomites, homosexuals],

10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God [θεός theos].

11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

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

13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body [soma] is not for fornication [πορνεία porneia ], but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.

14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.

15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ [Χριστός Christos]? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot [πόρνη pornē]? God forbid.

16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.

17 But he that is joined unto the Lord [κύριος kurios] is one spirit.

18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [ἅγιος πνεῦμα hagios pneuma] which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
