And you are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he who has done this deed might be taken away from among you.
1Co 5:3 For I indeed, as absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged (as though I were present) him who has so done this deed.
In the name of our Lord Christ, when you are gathered together, along with my spirit, with the power of our Lord Christ,
deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Christ.
Your glorying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?
Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us.
Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people.
Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world.
But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner-not even to eat with such a person.
For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside?
But those who are outside God judges. Therefore "put away from yourselves the evil person."[fn]
"And I will come near you for judgment; I will be a swift witness against sorcerers, against adulterers, against perjurers, against those who exploit wage earners and widows and orphans, and against those who turn away an alien-Because they do not fear Me," says the LORD of hosts."
Recompense where needed as we all will be accountable to our Creator and His word is truth. If we do not interpret His word in the way that He means for us to teach others and follow it ourselves, then we too are sinning and adding to the problems.
Falling short of the "Glory of God"/(His standard), is sin/missing the target/mark.
"Sin has wages" and "everyone must give an account to our Creator of what we have done in the body on this earth".
"Sin's wages bring death." If we keep missing the target, we will not hit the target that we need to hit. That means that we will be missing the mark. It is imperative for you to learn the truth and obey the truth. Just because "our penalty for missing the mark was paid for and made available for us to receive", does not mean we can trample on His sacrifice and continue in disobedience.
"The gift of eternal life is offered to those who REPENT from their "evil" ways". Evil is when you don't want to learn the truth and that "evil/twisted in understanding" person is rebellious to walk in obedience of following the truth. That person has not accepted to follow as a disciple, but will receive the wages of sin which is death. "Sin's wages bring death."
If we do not repent, and we continue "in sin" "there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,but a fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries."
Heb 10:26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, Heb 10:27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.
Continuing in sin is not living in the "liberty of grace" (grace means having the understanding/revelation) of having the robes fully clothing us in right understanding of His word and ways. Sin must be paid for but if we do not obey the truth and choose to be obedient in Him then we shall be required to pay, down to the very last penny.
Mat 5:21 "You have heard that it was said to those of old, 'You shall not murder,[fn] and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.'
Mat 5:22 "But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, 'Raca!' shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, 'You fool!' shall be in danger of hell fire.
Mat 5:23 "Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you,
Mat 5:24 "leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.
Mat 5:25 "Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are on the way with him, lest your adversary deliver you to the judge, the judge hand you over to the officer, and you be thrown into prison.
Mat 5:26 "Assuredly, I say to you, you will by no means get out of there till you have paid the last penny.
When referring to those who "keep" the oracles /"word of God", Paul the apostle understood that those who did not know (Gentiles) nor were taught "the Law of God", yet kept it in their actions by faith were shown to have God's understanding inside of their heart versus those who were outwardly circumcised in the flesh (Jews) and knew of the law of God, celebrated God's feasts days but did not always do/obey with action the law of God.(Do the will of the Father.) Both parties could sin (willfull or unknowingly) reaping judgement and both parties could choose to obey for life. There is a difference between knowing and not obeying, and not knowing but obeying.
What advantage then has the Jew, or what is the profit of circumcision?
Much in every way! Chiefly because to them were committed the oracles of God.
For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief make the faithfulness of God without effect?
Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar. As it is written:
"That You may be justified in Your words,
And may overcome when You are judged."
But if our unrighteousness demonstrates the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unjust who inflicts wrath? (I speak as a man.)
Certainly not! For then how will God judge the world?
For if the truth of God has increased through my lie to His glory, why am I also still judged as a sinner?
And why not say, "Let us do evil that good may come"?-as we are slanderously reported and as some affirm that we say. Their condemnation is just.
What then? Are we better than they? Not at all. For we have previously charged both Jews and Greeks that they are all under sin.
As it is written: "There is none righteous, no, not one;
There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God.
They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable;
There is none who does good, no, not one."
"Their throat is an open tomb; With their tongues they have practiced deceit";
"The poison of asps is under their lips";
"Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness."
"Their feet are swift to shed blood;
Destruction and misery are in their ways;
And the way of peace they have not known."
"There is no fear of God before their eyes."
Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, (no excuse) for by the law is the knowledge of sin. (This verse is not saying that the law of the LORD is bad. This speaks of DEEDS DONE and KNOWING the Law of the LORD one will KNOW if they SIN against "the Law of the LORD which is GOOD".
Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith,
from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk,
desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither what they say nor the things which they affirm.
But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully,
knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine,
according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust.His law is to Love God and Love people as these two greatest commandments hang all of the law and the prophets.)
"Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?"
Christ said to him, "'You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.'
"This is the first and great commandment.
"And the second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'
"On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets."
But now the righteousness of God (internally understanding) apart from the law (written "on stone") is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, (inscribed word) ( ) my interpretation of the difference between what is written and what is comprehended and lived)
even the righteousness of God, through faith in Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference; (Jew or Gentile)
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
being justified freely by His grace (revelation) through the redemption that is in Christ,
whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, (patience, long suffering because of ignorance)
to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, (right understanding) that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? No, but by the law of faith. (internal understanding and walking in right understanding/righteousness)
Therefore justified by faith we conclude that a man is(internal understanding and walking in right understanding/righteousness) apart from the deeds of the law.
Or is He the God of the Jews only? Is He not also the God of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also,
since there is one God who will justify the circumcised by faith(internal understanding and walking in right understanding/righteousness) and the uncircumcised through faith.
Do we then make void the law through faith? Certainly not! On the contrary, we establish the law.
