- Youngs Literal Bible
6:19 And even your body is not, strictly speaking, your own even this is the temple of the Holy Ghost - Dedicated to him, and inhabited by him. What the apostle calls elsewhere the temple of God, #1Cor 3:16|,17, and the temple of the living God, #2Cor 6:16|, he here styles the temple of the Holy Ghost; plainly showing that the Holy Ghost is the living God.
1Co 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost. This makes clear how terrible is the sin of defiling the body by licentiousness. It is desecrating God's temple. As the Shekinah dwelt in the temple of Israel, so the Holy Spirit in Christ's temple, which we are. Ye are not your own. But members of Christ, and hence have not the right to use our bodies to our own pleasure.

Apostle Paul seems to be dealing with the problem of ignorance in the church of the corinthians...Hence, 'Know ye not ' Ignorance they say is a disease...Paul wants them to have the understanding that as christians, they shouldn 't continue in immorality because their body is the temple of the Holy Spirit.

Amen to this verse! Thinking further about the phrase... Be ye not drunk with wine but be filled with the Spirit. Since our bodies are the temple of the H.S., this matter must be filled with what it is intended or else it will be defiled.

I love this scripture, as I do all scripture. Our living, and loving God puts so much into perspective with every word He speaks to us. Truly, think of what He is saying about identity here, about the intimacy of relationship, the connection we share with Him, knowing we are one with Him, through the Holy Spirit, baptised into Christ, speaking as a Father to His children, encouraging them and instructing them into what is right, and what is true.
Yea, and amen.
David's comment on 2013-06-19 05:07:13:
The Bible tells us that our bodies are house of the Holy Spirit and that he leaves in it.so as soon as you accept Christ by confessing with your mouth then God puts his spirit in you to live there so your body belongs to the spirit. you cannot do anything on your own anymore. you need to ask the holy spirit if it pleases Him.
May God bless His word.

My thoughts of I Corinthians 6:19 are that if you must know, the word of God is not opinionated, nor base on what you think or what I think. The word of God is Yea and Amen. The word of God also goes on to say not one jot, one title; the Heaven and Earth will pass away before he changes his word. Make no mistake God is not interested in what you think. You have to be lead by the Spirit. God Bless You!
