Reading – 1 Corinthians 5-6

Highlight Verses:

“When I wrote to you before, I told you not to associate with people who indulge in sexual sin. But I wasn’t talking about unbelievers who indulge in sexual sin, or are greedy, or cheat people, or worship idols. You would have to leave this world to avoid people like that.”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭5‬:‭9‬-‭10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

In the previous verses, Paul warns the Corinthians not to allow someone unrepentant to associate with the church.

His heart is clear. He wants people to repent.

If we act like sin is not sin, people will neglect repentance, trading a Gospel of new life for one of tolerance that robs the supposed Christian of salvation from sin.

Paul’s heart wants people to find Jesus. Let’s not drive them away from salvation by pretending there’s no need for it.

Are you tempted to value tolerance over repentance?
Can you see how that would drive people away from God?
