|IN HIS FIRST LETTER to people living in the city of Corinth, out of loving concern for their soul, Apostle Paul provided HOPE. Many of them were seeking to make various lifestyle changes.
Not once did he indicate that lifestyle changes are easy. What the Bible says about lifestyle changes is shown below word-for-word without comment. It is shared in both the NIV and KJV versions of Scripture. *If you are new to the Bible, there is a guideline after the Scriptural Text.
(I Corinthians 6:9-ll) New International Version, NIV
9. Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men.
10. Nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
11. And that is WHAT SOME OF YOU WERE, but you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
1 Corinthians 6:9 The words men who have sex with men translate two Greek words that refer to the passive and active participants in homosexual acts.
(I Corinthians 6:9-ll) King James Version, KJV
9. 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,
10. Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11. AND 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.
In case you are new to the Bible:
Basically, the word "Bible" denotes a "Collection or Library of Books." Most copies have an Index in the front listing the names of the 66 Books contained inside.
THE (Bible) LIBRARY is divided into two major sections; the Old Testament (Covenant) and the New Testament (Covenant). You will find I Corinthians 6: 9-11 in the New Testament section. To make it easier to find various passages, each Book of the Bible is divided into Chapters and Verses.
The name of the Book is listed first followed by the particular Chapter and then Verse or Verses; (I Corinthians 6:9-11).
