Text

1 Corinthians 5:1–7 KJV 1900
1 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife. 2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. 3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed, 4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, 5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. 6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? 7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
1 Corinthians 5:1–5 KJV 1900
1 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife. 2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. 3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed, 4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, 5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
1 Corinthians 5:1–13 ESV
1 It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that is not tolerated even among pagans, for a man has his father’s wife. 2 And you are arrogant! Ought you not rather to mourn? Let him who has done this be removed from among you. 3 For though absent in body, I am present in spirit; and as if present, I have already pronounced judgment on the one who did such a thing. 4 When you are assembled in the name of the Lord Jesus and my spirit is present, with the power of our Lord Jesus, 5 you are to deliver this man to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord. 6 Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? 7 Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. 8 Let us therefore celebrate the festival, not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 9 I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— 10 not at all meaning the sexually immoral of this world, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. 11 But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler—not even to eat with such a one. 12 For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? 13 God judges those outside. “Purge the evil person from among you.”

Introduction

The City of corenth was know for its sin, it was famous for it. the corinthians were associated food drink and sex. in corenth everything was done to excess but the church in corent should be different.

I. The Sin

1 Corinthians 5:1–2 KJV 1900
1 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife. 2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.
A. THe Report (V.1)
Paul had heard that one of the Christian men at corenth was living with his stepmother while his father was still alive. This was a situation that would even be offencive to Paggons.
There is sexual imorality among you
The Word used here can include a number of illicit sexual behaviors but whatever was going on it Jeprodized the health of the corinthian Church
A key reason for church Dicipline is the health of the Church
the Union that had taken place was one that was particularly offencive in nature
THis imorality is not even tolerated by the pagans
The sin that had taken place was so discusting that in was even condemed by Godless pagans.
The fathers wife
It must be noted here this is not this man’s mother, if it was Paul lickly would have just said that. This would have been his stepmother
B. The responce of the action (V.2)
1 Corinthians 5:2 KJV 1900
2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.
To Paul this was absolutly outrages and was a blatent breach of Christian holyness. However the corinthians were Proud of it they arn’t hung up on the dos and don’t’s they do what they want because christ has set the freee and want to show how tolernt they are.
Paul basiclly is asking
“What is wrong with you”
They saw there freedom in Christ as a licence to sin and to take part in nearly any kind of conduct
They wanted to show how tollerent they were of sin the basic statement was...
“Christ died on the cross so we can partake in any kind of sin”
Christ’s death is not a licence to sin it allows us to no longer be defined by our sin!
Romans 6:1 KJV 1900
1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
Christ’s death is not a licence to sin it allows us to no longer be defined by our sin!
Paul tells the believers in corenth that they should have reacted to the Behavior this man has with a united front of greif.
It should be deeply upseting that another christian could shame his Lord in this way
The sad thing is churches do this today
liberal churches say you are welcome here and do not need to clean up your life.
leaglistic churches say you are not welcome here until you clean up your life
But Jesus says you are welcome here and I will change your life
John 8:7–11 KJV 1900
7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. 8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. 9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? 11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
C. What must you do
Paul tells the Believers to remove the individual from among them
Rember the prosess of Church Dicipline?
Paul is not unaware of Christ’s teaching in this matter he is not telling them to ignore this teaching.
The fact that he tells the church to remove them implies that the sin had been going on for sometime and it was clear that the individual involved involved in the sin was not going to repent.
It is also lickly that some of the church had tried to correct the issue but Others fefused pointing to there “freedom in Christ”

II. What you must do

1 Corinthians 5:3–5 KJV 1900
3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed, 4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, 5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
A. Opening statement.
Paul knows matteres like this canot be ignored, and therefore announces the punishment that must be given.
absent though present in the spirit
Paul’s statement here of being absent though present in spirt he uses multipul times throughout his letters.
Though he is not physically present in corenth he has pressed Judgement on the one who committed such a sin.
He does not name the one who committed the sin but..
All the church would have been aware
He said “I have already pronounced Judgement on the one who did this dead.”
B. What to Do?
1 Cor
1 Corinthians 5:4–5 KJV 1900
4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, 5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
There are several things that need to be unpacked in this passage
a. Formal Church Membership
When you are assembled
the greek word for church is eccelisia
litterally means assembely
this is talking about the body of the church when they gatherd togetehr as a church body they were to take care of this matter
you are to diliver
None of this can happen without formal Church Membership of some kind
Some say today that membership is not importnt
Some say they love Jesues but not the Church
You cant love Jesues and hate his church
Matthew 16:18 KJV 1900
18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
B. Diliver to Satin
ice he says with the Power of the Lord Jesus.
It is with the Power of the Lord that this thing must be delt with
The statement to diliver the man to satin is an unusual one. used only one other place in all of scripture
1 Timothy 1:20 KJV 1900
20 Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.
This is not refering to physical death as many have unfortenetly interpreted.
The distruction of the flesh is corrective for which the puropse is to lead the individual to salvation
The expression used to diliver such a one to satan is equivelent to putting away the wicked man from among yoreselves in V 13.
This turning over to satin is to turn him back ti the world. This text gives the indication that this man was not saved therfore he should be returned to the wold so that he can reap the consequences of His rebellion.
The idea being he will see the error of his way turn to christ and be saved
If we let him continue to assume he is saved his soul will be damed but if we correct and lead back to Christ he will be saved.
