1 Corinthians 6:12-20
In the second half of ch. 6, Paul is combining essential concepts in a way which is profound, intriguing, and ultimately helpful. At the heart of the issue which Paul is raising is this question: What is the relationship between liberty and law in the Christian life? Just because something may be permitted by grace or law doesn’t mean that it is a good idea. And a factor that is greatly lacking in today’s Christian environment, especially among young people, is the matter of wisdom and discernment. The battle cry of the modern day Christian is, “I have liberty!” without any thoughtful consideration as to whether or not the exercise of that liberty is in our best interests, or more importantly, in the best interests of the name of Jesus Christ and the kingdom of God.
