Bible Commentary for 1 Corinthians 6:7

Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 6:7


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.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 6:7


1Co 6:7 There is utterly a fault among you. It was a fault ("loss" or "defeat" in the Greek) to go to law at all. It was better rather take wrong . . . rather to be defrauded, than to work so great an injury to the church by the ill-feeling aroused, and by the scandal in the eyes of the heathen. The rule is, then, (1) To suffer wrong rather than to go to law. (2) If an adjudication is required, to refer to the case, not to unbelieving judges, but to a "wise man" within the church. For other Scriptures bearing on the subject, see 1Pe 2:23 Mt 5:40 1Pe 2:19 Pr 20:22.

Discussion for 1 Corinthians 6:7

  • Paul Ivie on 1 Corinthians 6:7
    Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

    10Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    11And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

    Praise God we have been washed clean by the precious blood of Jesus and are now totally sanctified, justified & redeemed because of the death, burial & resurrection of Jesus Christ.1 Corinthians 1:29-30 29 so that no one may boast before him. 30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God-that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Galatians 2:20 King James Version (KJV) 20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. That is what Christ has done for us, in us and who we are in Jesus Christ. What Glorious Salvation.

    Yes Paul, Praise the Lord, and to continue please read Matthew 24:11-13.

    11 - And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

    12 - And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

    13 - But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

    Matthew 10:22

    And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

    What does he who endureth to the end mean?

    But he that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved.

    But he who goes through to the end will get salvation.

    But he that has endured to the end, he shall be saved.

    But he that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved.

    But those who stand firm to the End shall be saved.

    But he who endures to the end, the same will be saved.

    Praise God, Thank You Jesus.
  • Paul Ivie - in Reply on 1 Corinthians 6:7
    Thank you for your reply Jay. God bless you as you continue to reach souls with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
