Church members should not fight one another in the courts—The unrighteous will not be saved—True Saints are the temple of the Holy Ghost.
1 Dare any of you, having a amatter against another, go to blaw before the unjust, and not before the saints?
2 Do ye not know that the saints shall ajudge the bworld? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
3 Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
4 If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.
5 I speak to your ashame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?
6 But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers.
7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take awrong? why do ye not rather bsuffer yourselves to be cdefrauded?
8 Nay, ye do wrong, and adefraud, and that your brethren.
9 Know ye not that the aunrighteous shall not binherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither cfornicators, nor idolaters, nor dadulterers, nor eeffeminate, nor fabusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor athieves, nor covetous, nor bdrunkards, nor crevilers, nor dextortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you: but ye are awashed, but ye are bsanctified, but ye are justified in the cname of the Lord Jesus, and by the dSpirit of our God.
12 aAll things are lawful unto me, but all things are not bexpedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
13 Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for afornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.
14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also araise up us by his own power.
15 Know ye not that your bodies are the amembers of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.
16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be aone flesh.
17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is aone spirit.
18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
19 What? know ye not that your abody is the btemple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your cown?
20 For ye are abought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
