The Coach Speaks
9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous[b] will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,[c] 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
1 Corinthians 6:9-12
Often this passage is used to single out the evils of certain sins and in doing so one undoubtedly mis-uses the passage. Not to mention that anyone who thinks they escape mention in this passage needs to look at themselves through the mirror of God’s perfect Holy Law. Chapter six of first Corinthians, finds Paul laying down the law to his readers concerning the fact they are suing one another.
The problem arises when we get to verse nine and ten and begin to confuse what Paul gives as the perfect law of Heaven, with day to day instructions on governing in how we live. Not to mention, that verses nine and ten leave no one, absolutely no one unscathed, and no stone unturned as it paints a perfect picture of heaven and those who will not be found there.ribes in verses 9 and 10, but about Christ NOT being found in this picture of utter failures in righteousness.
