As we come to chapter 7 of 1 Corinthians, Paul starts to address some of the most challenging areas of life, including marriage and singleness.

Right Judgement (1 Corinthians 5:1-6:11)

By 1 Corinthians, Talks

As we start to think about God’s vision for the purity of sex, we come to another complicated struggle in the Corinthian church: a man sleeping with his father’s wife. Into this situation, Paul reminds the church of the power of making right judgements—with clarity, without hypocrisy—and how important this is for maintaining health in the church.
