Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 6:2


6:2 Know ye not - This expression occurs six times in this single chapter, and that with a peculiar force; for the Corinthians knew and gloried in it, but they did not practise. That the saints - After having been judged themselves. Shall judge the world - Shall be assessors with Christ in the judgment wherein he shall condemn all the wicked, as well angels as men, #Matt 19:28 |#Rev 20:4|.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 6:2


1Co 6:2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? Shall sit with Christ, after they have been judged, while the world is judged (Mt 25:41; 19:29). If so high a trust is to be given, it is a little thing that saints should judge differences between church members. These ought all to be submitted to arbitrators, or to the officers.

  • Nick Nkole
    This book is amazing. It is an eye opener. It has opened my eyes to deeper life. That I am in Christ and Christ is in me (which am now a temple of God) is awesome. Who can condemn me now? You see, to condemn me is to condemn Christ who is in me. And, who does dare do that? I have been endowed with great power by God. And, I can now do all things through Christ who is now in me. I am 12 feet now.

  • Sinner Saved By Grace for verse 9
    Gods word is truth! When God created man,he said, it is not good that man should be alone. God gave him a help mate, which was a women, not a man.
  • Charliegirl for verse 9
    Be not deceived God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.Galations 6:7 The ACT itself is WICKED and PERVERSE. God never intended for two men or two women to be together sexually. If you are openly or not behaving and conducting yourself in a manner that is not pleasing to God... Better get it right. Tomorrow may be too late for you.
