1 Corinthians Chapter 7 Discussion Page 4



 
  • Verses 32 through 38 talk about the advantages of being single. It allows one to focus on serving God more fully with less distractions.
  • Stephen on 1 Corinthians 7
    In this times and season of chaos, pestilence, recession, terrorism, crisis, wars, draught, famine experienced around the world, we need to draw closer to God.

    It is a good thing to serve the Lord. When the word of God concerning marriage is wholly applied, it brings peace, joy, harmony, togetherness and above all love to the home.

    God Bless the Marriage of all our brethren globally.
  • Irene123 on 1 Corinthians 7
    To 'p' on 1 Cor. (lust) -- as lust is condemned, then it isn't part of the Spirit of God. The spirit of God is found in Gal. I forget the scriptures. A person with God's spirit indwelling in him - God gives desire' to for their mate, not 'lust'. You have to have the indwelling spirit to know the difference. Lust is of Satan.
  • If looking at another with lust is considered adultery, and we are more or less biologically programmed to feel lust in order to propogate the species, it would appear that the overwhelming majority of human beings are guilty of a mortal sin because of their nature.Good thing looking at other peoples food isn't a sin.
  • Judith on 1 Corinthians 7
    It is so good to adhere to God's word. When you ask him to help you. You will be sustained. It is good that people who are preparing to get married agree and ask the Lord to assist them and do not indulge in formication. It is possible to wait until the day of the Wedding. God bless you all.
  • WILLIAMS on 1 Corinthians 7
    I left my husband for the 3rd time ,due to emotional ,physically and spiritually abuse, it's sad cause the only time he pleased if I allow him to come over and stay a night or two, but I'm not happy with that. I would love for my husband to seek GOD for his healing and blessing, and then if its meant for us to be 1 again then ill be happy. If not I must accept the fact and truth divorce.

    Loved my Corinthians in the Bible!
  • Wandering but not lost on 1 Corinthians 7
    @cassandramorgan Jesus says that one who looks at another with lust in their heart has already committed adultery ( Matthew 5:28).

    @jessicahoover your husband is sanctified through you: according to Strongs accordance, that word there means set apart, holy in sight of God
  • Devin Spooner on 1 Corinthians 7
    It is just amazing that the bible has the answers for you as you go through your journey of life!!!
  • Cassara Morgan on 1 Corinthians 7:1
    The KJV says it is good for a MAN not to touch a WOMAN. The next verse says but let every MAN have his own WIFE. That alone shows that a MAN is NOT to touch a WOMAN until she is his WIFE. The word adultery means when a MARRIED person physically romantically touches another people that is not their own spouse. Fornication is people doing stuff before they are married. I have been married for a little over a year now, and me nor my husband did anything physically romantic with each other or anyone else til we were married. It is the most wonderful feeling that he never had his hands on another woman and I never had another guy touching me. Thanks for reading. Please don't comment if you are trying to defend yourself. The Bible says what it says.
  • Verse 14 If your spouse is not saved you should be dutiful and have compassion for your spouse. Demonstrate the love of God in all that you do. Focus on God and trust him to do the work of salvation. You may influence your spouse by your faith in God and your behaviour in the home.

    Wife Keep On WHIT WHAT YOU ARE DOING GOD IS WITH YOU AL-WAYS THERE IS NOTHING THAT GOD CAN T DO,I WILL PRAY WITH YOU EACH AN EVERY-DAY ,IN JESUS FATHERNAME .A-MEN KINSTON NC
  • James Garrett on 1 Corinthians 7:4
    First God never endorses nor allows adultery to go unpunished. I this verse the writer is advising married people on how the relationship between husband and wife is structured. Your question is answered in verse 5 6. 1Co 7:5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your inconsistency. 1Co 7:6 But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment. In theses words Paul speaks to times of illness or other time when married people might need to be apart. Paul then writes what a lot of married people sometimes feel Ok some feel this way all the time but they need help 1Co 7:7 For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that. 1Co 7:8 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I. 1Co 7:9 But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn. This of course advises them on how to avoid the wrath of God for fornication . Be warned!
  • This is in response to "Lucy ". Lucy, seek God through prayer on this issue with your husband. You can find the answer to this situation through God 's Word and prayer. We will lift you up in prayer, in the book of Joshua, God proves He will lead the way and provide results when we seek His face.
  • My husband has converted to Islam. He told me that if I refuse to convert to watch my head of I am dead. He is a serial adulterer . He is violent. I locked him out to save my life. I don 't believe that God wants me to be abused or killed by my husband. We have been married for 46 years. I love the man I married but he is not the same man I thought I married. He has lost his mind!
  • We christians are not to leave/divorce the unbeliever?
  • RNM I COR 7-26 on 1 Corinthians 7
    I COR 7-26... And I think a lot depends on why they separated, to me that would be an important part, because if he was unfaithful or did not hold up to his part of the marriage devotions, God may not sanctify you marrying this person for one. this is really a subject better suited for private conversation. Hope this helps? AMEN!!
  • RNM ICOR 7---25 on 1 Corinthians 7
    I CORIN 6:18...Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body but he that committeth fornication sinneth aganst his own body. The sin of fornication is always their if the two consenting parties are not married in the eyes of God. AMEN!!
  • Essie on 1 Corinthians 7
    I have a question about fornication is it a sin to be with a married man when him n his wife is separated for ten years
  • D.v.v. on 1 Corinthians 7
    I 'm replying to a question asked about once saved always saved. In HEB 6 4 6 Heb 10 26 trust in your first impulse in reading this Matt 17 27 Jesus said. I pray you understand this, ask the holy spirit for help.
  • D.V.V. on 1 Corinthians 7
    We see here an example of a person or persons being accountable for themselves. That is writen. If God has but you together with someone stay if at all possible, keeping peace. God is incontrol of ever situation in our life. We need to love as God intends for us to do, the whole bible is our love letter from our father. Eph1 1 5 Its already been planned for us!
  • Edward James on 1 Corinthians 7
    Can you explain verse 9. I am engaged but wehave not set a date yet. We do cuddle and kiss but do not touch our private parts. Also we have slept together but we have not had sex. We said we would wait until after we got married. Also is it wrong to have sex after we are married.
  • Kasi oyige on 1 Corinthians 7
    A guide for the married and those intending to.
  • Prophet Dennis BEll on 1 Corinthians 7
    First and foremost, one must take into account two pertinent thoughts this was a Gentile church, and most of those who received the Holy Ghost, in Corinth may have come out of the religious ideology of sex as a form of worship. That s what was going on in Corinth at the times of Paul. Paul was very careful not to give his opinions as the "devine will of God ". He said "but to the rest speak I, not the Lord ". In America aswell as the entire church world, times has changed. For a man doesn 't posseess a virgin as they did in his Paul 's time. The most important thing to be aware of is that if you acquire knowledge of your wife 's past after you marry her,you may or may not be justified in divorcing her. It depends on her past and if she has repented. Then again, this is my opinion. However,for the church, the only thing justifying divorce is Adultery!!! That s Christ, and not me.
  • It means to be made holy. You are NO LONGER two...you are one.
  • Pastor T on 1 Corinthians 7:14
    We had this same discussion at my church, the bible says that when we marry we become as one spirit.... remember light overcomes dark any day, greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world. So, my perception is this if we are one spirit than the God in the holy one overtakes the darkness of the other!! Also the bible says how can two walk together except they agree at some point the unsaved one must have a lil belief I think or he or she wouldn 't be married to the holier one so maybe they have as much belief as a mustard seed but are not ready to live the life??? I 'm just speculating. But to finish my thought I do believe that if the other party dies before excepting Jesus in their lives I believe God still receives them unto him self even if he puts them in a lower level of heaven an not the Hollies of Hollies, because that person loved the holy individual just like Christ loved the church so in return they loved on Jesus throughout their marriage!!By the way..... my unsaved husband eventually gave his life to the Lord, thank you Jesus!!! For saving both of us Eight and counting for me and one year and a few months for him .... Praise the Lord!!!!

    Good
  • 2ChromeEyes on 1 Corinthians 7:28
    1Corinthians 7 27 28 Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife. 28 But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the flesh but I spare you. Those who were loosed from a wife at that time, were loosed for reason of the man having found his new bride unclean, of fornication, and had put her away, making him loosed from a wife.
  • verse 12 "But to the rest speak I, not the Lord " interesting, is he demonstrating some humility?
  • Gail N. on 1 Corinthians 7:14
    THE VERSE OF SCRIPTURE HAS BEEN USED TO "PROVE " THAT CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF ACCOUNTABILITY, OF UNBELIVING PARENTS WILL NOT BE TAKEN IN THE RAPTURE EVEN THOUGH THEY HAVE NEVER KNOWN SIN NOR SINNED. NOWHERE IN THAT VERSE CAN I MAKE IT SAY YHAT HAVING READ IT AT A DOZEN TIMES IN EVREY TRANSLATION OF THE WORD I CAN GET MY HANDS ON. I HAVE UNSAVED SONS IN LAW AS WELL AS GRANDCHILDREN GRANDCHILDREN IN LAW,THAT HAVE TO ATTEMPT TO EXPLAIN WHY IT IS NOT ONLY IMPERATIVE FOR THEIR OWN SOUL TO BE SAVED WHEN CHRIST RETURNS BUT FOR THE YOUNG BABIE 'S AS WELL. MY GRANDCHILDREN GREATGTANDCHILDREN HAVING TO GO THROUGH THE TRIBULATION IS NOT WHAT SOMETHING THAT MAKES ME JOYFUL. HARD TO RECTIFY THAT SCRIPTURE TO AN UNBELIVER AS A WITNESS FOR SALVYION OR AT LEAST FOR ME...
