'In Sin' in the Bible

With reference to the subjects about which you wrote to me: It would be well for a man to remain single.

Yet I wish that everyone were like me [i.e., with the ability to remain single. See 9:5]. However, each person has his own special gift from God; one has this gift [i.e., being content to remain single. See Matt. 19:12], and another has the other gift [i.e., feeling the need to marry and have a family].

To all who are unmarried and to widows, I would say this: It is an excellent thing if they can remain single as I am.

For married people these are my instructions (and they are the Lord's, not mine). A wife is not to separate from her husband ??11 if she has separated, she must either remain single or be reconciled to him ??and a husband must not put away his wife.

But if she does [separate from and divorce him], let her remain single or else be reconciled to her husband. And [I charge] the husband [also] that he should not put away or divorce his wife.

But in sinning against your brothers in this way and wounding their too scrupulous consciences, you are really sinning against Christ.
