1 Corinthians 6


                                                                   1 Corinthians 6
Why not let yourself be wronged or cheated?

Wow, what a concept. In America we're taught to fight for our rights. We can get angry when another Christian believes differently from us. I don't mean the core of the gospel. I mean those things beyond our salvation that trip us up and cause arguments on Facebook and blogs. There are people who print huge websites just to degrade another's ministry. What i they spent that same amount of time reaching out to those that need God? I can only imagine the revivals that could take place.

What about when someone has used and cheated you? Now you must forgive them? Yep. Paul asks us to care more about our brothers and sisters than whether we are right.

The second half of the chapter is Paul telling the Corinthians that our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit.  Your body owned by God. We need to protect the place where God dwells. In this part of the sketch I placed a young girl shielding herself from the things that would defile her body, the  place where God lives.
