1 Corinthians Chapter 6:1-6

When one of you has a grievance against another, does he dare go to law before the unrighteous instead of the saints?

1 Corinthians 6:1-6
1
Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unrighteous, and not before the saints?
2
Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
3
Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life?
4
If then you have judgments concerning things pertaining to this life, do you appoint those who are least esteemed by the church to judge?
5
I say this to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you, not even one, who will be able to judge between his brethren?
6
But brother goes to law against brother, and that before unbelievers!
  1. Who should we take a legal matter to?

  5. Who were brothers going against before unbelievers?
    1 Corinthians 6:6
    But brother goes to law against brother, and that before unbelievers!

1 Corinthians Chapter 6:7-11

To have lawsuits at all with one another is already a defeat for you. Why not rather suffer wrong? Why not rather be defrauded?

1 Corinthians 6:7-11
7
Now therefore, it is already an utter failure for you that you go to law against one another. Why do you not rather accept wrong? Why do you not rather let yourselves be cheated?
8
No, you yourselves do wrong and cheat, and you do these things to your brethren!
9
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites,
10
nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.
11
And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
  1. Instead of going to law against a brother, what should we do?

    10
    nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.
  4. What had some of them been previously, and what had they become?
    1 Corinthians 6:11
    And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.

All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
