Bible Commentary for 1 Corinthians 6:6

Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 6:6


6:4 Them who are of no esteem in the church - That is, heathens, who, as such, could be in no esteem with the Christians.

6:5 Is there not one among you, who are such admirers of wisdom, that is wise enough to decide such causes?

6:7 Indeed there is a fault, that ye quarrel with each other at all, whether ye go to law or no. Why do ye not rather suffer wrong - All men cannot or will not receive this saying. Many aim only at this, I will neither do wrong, nor suffer it. These are honest heathens, but no Christians.

6:8 Nay, ye do wrong - Openly. And defraud - Privately. O how powerfully did the mystery of iniquity already work!

1Co 6:6 And that before unbelievers. It was lamentable that brethren should go to law. How much more of a scandal when they carried their cases into the heathen courts.
