6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed - From those gross abominations; nay, and ye are inwardly sanctified; not before, but in consequence of, your being justified in the name - That is, by the merits, of the Lord Jesus, through which your sins are forgiven. And by the Spirit of our God - By whom ye are thus washed and sanctified.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 6:11


1Co 6:11 And such were some of you. Some of the worst classes had been converted. Ye are washed. "Were washed", as in the Revised Version. These verbs are all past tense. The rite of baptism is probably referred to. Ye are sanctified. To be sanctified is to be set apart to God. Ye are justified. That is, their sins were blotted out and they were counted righteous. Sinners as they were before, the gospel had washed, hallowed, and justified them. By the Spirit of our God. The work was consummated by the gift of the Holy Spirit (Ac 2:38).

Discussion for 1 Corinthians 6

  • A disciple
    "if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?" However it got started; the idea that we aren't supposed to use our brains or the discernment of God's Spirit in us to judge; is both against reality and all knowledge of the truth. How are we supposed to otherwise know whether we have a good or bad conscience toward God or toward each other, and to resist Satan?
  • A disciple
    It's "interesting" how the LORD is sifting and purging the hearts and minds of men these days! One person loves and is good, and seeks to bless in the Name of the Lord; and the response from many, is judging and cursing and finding fault! These are the times for searching our hearts, and setting in order before God; and not to be drawn away, after the error of the wicked; and to be faithful to HIM
