Equipping Your Reimagine Journey

#ItSeemsToMe...we evangelicals are quick to pick out from this list homosexual practice while forgetting the list includes greed, cheating, drunkenness, adultery (insert Jesus’ definition), verbal abuse.

“Don’t you know that the unrighteous will not inherit God’s kingdom? Do not be deceived: No sexually immoral people, idolaters, adulterers, or anyone practicing homosexuality, no thieves, greedy people, drunkards, verbally abusive people, or swindlers will inherit God’s kingdom.”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭6:9-10‬ ‭HCSB‬‬

Pondering:

-This list is neither alphabetical or hierarchical

-Each word denotes an unrighteous action that is to be avoided

-None of the identified actions has an asterisk * calling for Christians to discriminate, ostracize or bring violence to any of the categories

-It would be a sin for a congregation to refuse participation from persons who drink to excess or cheat on their income tax 

The list (text) is sandwiched (context) between two general statements.

   1. Pre:  People who sin cannot inherit salvation 

   2. Post: Salvation has been provided by God’s gracious action to make you clean, holy, right with God, in the authority of Jesus and the work of the Spirit.

We sin.

God saves.

“Surely you know that the people who do wrong will not inherit God’s kingdom. Do not be fooled. Those who sin sexually, worship idols, take part in adultery, those who are male prostitutes, or men who have sexual relations with other men, those who steal, are greedy, get drunk, lie about others, or rob—these people will not inherit God’s kingdom.
