Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.

1 Corinthians 5:9-13

Immorality Must Be Judged

   Recently I was called judgmental; I had offended someone with one of my social media posts. So reading from Paul’s first epistle to the Corinthians I can rebuke those who actually judged me by calling me judgmental simply because I follow the teachings of Christ as recorded in the Bible. It is certainly not my job to judge the people of this world that live their lives in sin, to do this means that I would have to be in the world and quite simply I am not but allow me the scripture today that God may speak directly to you and then if you don’t like it, you can take it up with Him. Here is a little secret, you will lose if you choose to argue with God.

   There is a difference between judging someone and not keeping company with those that call themselves a brother or sister that are in sin. Paul teaches us through God’s Holy inspired word that we are not to keep company with them nor are we even to eat a meal with them, in other words we are not to fellowship with them. We are taught to put the sinning brother or sister away from us, so we are not to accept them that profess to be in Christ with their mouths and act according to what the world would accept. In the book of Matthew we are taught how to approach a sinning brother or sister; Matthew 5. In Paul’s letter to Timothy the word also instructs us how to use the scripture with love and respect to exhort, rebuke and instruct.

   Argue if you will, judge if you wish but in the end it is God that will judge you, and with the same measure that you have judged others. Good luck, you will need it but it will do you no good if you wish to argue with God; that too is recorded, in the book of Acts it is recorded as kicking against the goads. No one wants to fight a battle that they can’t win, God never loses.

I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. 10 Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. 11 But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner—not even to eat with such a person. 12 For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside? 13 But those who are outside God judges. Therefore “put away from yourselves the evil person.”
