1 Corinthians 6:12-20 - Sexual Immorality

1. Apparently the Corinthian congregation boasted to Paul that as Christian believers they had a right to do anything they pleased. What’s wrong with saying that?

2. In Verse 13, some Corinthians claimed that the physical acts of eating and digesting food have no bearing on one’s inner spiritual life, therefore the physical act of promiscuous sexual activity also does not affect one’s spiritual life. What’s wrong with this reasoning? (Romans 12:1, Hebrews 13:4)

3. In verse 14, Paul illustrates God’s high regard for the body (He raised Christ from the dead and will raise us also). How does that support his point of remaining sexually pure? (1 Corinthians 15:51-53, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)

4. In verse 15, Paul says that your body is a member of Christ himself. Explain that. (1 Corinthians 12:27)

5. In verse 16, Paul says that when two people are united sexually with one another, they will become one flesh. What does that mean and where does it come from? (Genesis 2:24, Matthew 19:5)

6. Paul says in verse 16 that there is even a higher union than the marriage bond. What is it?

7. With 1,000 temple prostitutes at the Temple of Aphrodite (the Greek goddess of love and sex), prostitution was approved and commonplace in Corinth. As a Christian, how would you respond to your friends at work when they say, “hey, let’s go worship at the temple tonight and get some?”

8. Resisting sexual temptation is not easy. Where can we turn to for help? (Romans 8:9)

9. As you get older, what will go first—your appetite for food, for sex, for books, or other interests?

10. In what area do you struggle most with the “permissible” versus the “beneficial?” How can you begin a “temple maintenance program” (vs 19-20) to help you?
