Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.
I'm more into democracy than kingdoms anyway.
Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ?
I am the penis of a god!
Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute?
May it never be!
May it never be!
We think alike, you and I.
Or do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body with her?
The beast with two backs.
For He says, â€œTHE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH.â€�
Three times, on weekends.
But the one who joins himself to the Lord
Watch your mouth!
is one spirit with Him. Flee immorality.
I read once that, "Of all forms of sexual deviation, chastity is the most perverse."
Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body.
That makes no sense. To sin is to doubt or disobey gods. To sin against a body--instead of against a god--would be to doubt or disobey the body. My body definitely wants to have sex.
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you,
Right, I do not know that.
whom you have from God,
I watched a panel of experts discuss the Trinity. None of them would accept anything that the others said.
Except they all wanted us to agree that the Trinity is true--even if it doesn't have a known meaning.
How can something without meaning be true?
That makes no sense.
and that you are not your own?
Nuts to that.
For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.
I went to this restaurant and ordered a glass of water. The waiter gave me the water and said, "That will be a million billion trillion dollars."
I said, "I can't pay that."
He said, "It's okay. I killed the busboy to cover your debt."
That's a stupid system. I don't agree to the debt. I don't agree to the price.
Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
Kingdoms again, eh?
King Arthur: I am your king.
Peasant Woman: Well, I didn't vote for you.
King Arthur: You don't vote for kings.
Peasant Woman: Well, how'd you become king, then?
[Angelic music plays...]
King Arthur: The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. That is why I am your king.
Dennis: Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
Arthur: Be quiet!
Dennis: You can't expect to wield supreme executive power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!
Arthur: Shut up!
Dennis: I mean, if I went around saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!
What you want is a system that makes sense. It has to make more
sense than the moistened bint system being made fun of above. Claiming I'm your slave because you killed the busboy or crucified part of a monotheistic god, that's not going to sell. Only perverts would get onboard for that.
Seriously, you'd be better off with an anarcho-syndicalist commune.
