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
