Know you not that your bodies are Christ's members? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them a harlot's members? by no means. Know you not that he who is joined to a harlot is one body [with her]? For the two, says he, shall be one flesh. But he that is joined to the Lord is one spirit [with him]. read more.
Avoid fornication. Every crime that a man commits is out of his body; but he that commits fornication sins in his body.


as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities about them, committing fornication in the same manner as these and going after unnatural lewdness, are made an example, enduring the punishment of eternal fire. In like manner also these dreamers defile the flesh, reject government, and blaspheme glories. But Michael the arch-angel, when disputing with the devil he reasoned about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a charge of blasphemy, but said, The Lord rebuke you. read more.
But these blaspheme what they do not understand, and what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in these things they corrupt themselves. Woe to them; for they have gone in the way of Cain, and rushed into the error of Balaam for a reward, and perished in the contradiction of Korah. These are breakers at your love-feasts, feasting with you without fear, feeding themselves, clouds without water driven about by winds, autumnal trees without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots, wild waves of the sea foaming with their own shame, wandering stars to which is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of them, saying, Behold, the Lord came with ten thousand of his saints to execute judgment on all, and to convict all the wicked among them of all the deeds of impiety which they have impiously committed, and of all the hard speeches which impious sinners have spoken against him. These are complainers, censorious, walking after their inordinate desires, and their mouth speaks proud words, showing admiration of persons for the sake of gain.



Food for the stomach, and the stomach for food; but God will destroy both it and them. And the body is not for fornication but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body; and God both raised the Lord, and will raise us up by his power. Know you not that your bodies are Christ's members? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them a harlot's members? by no means. read more.
Know you not that he who is joined to a harlot is one body [with her]? For the two, says he, shall be one flesh. But he that is joined to the Lord is one spirit [with him]. Avoid fornication. Every crime that a man commits is out of his body; but he that commits fornication sins in his body. Know you not that your bodies are a temple of the Holy Spirit in you which you have from God, and you are not your own? For you are bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body.

CONCERNING what you wrote to me, it is good for a man not to touch a woman; but on account of fornications, let each man have his wife, and each woman have her husband. Let the husband render to the wife her due, and in like manner also the wife the husband. read more.
The wife has not the right to her body, but the husband; and in like manner the husband has not the right to his body, but the wife. Withhold not yourselves from one another, except by agreement for a time that you may be at leisure for prayer, and come together again, that Satan may not tempt you by your incontinence. But this I say by suggestion, not by command. For I wish that all men were even as I am; but each one has his gift from God, and one is of one kind and another of another. And I say to the unmarried and to the widows, that it is good for them to continue as I am; but if they have not self-control, let them marry; it is better to marry than to be incontinent.
