Quote of the week: Holy Body

...when he [Paul] tells the Corinthians to flee from fornication (1 Cor. 6:18), he says that every other sin is “without the body.” So also, 1 Corinthians 6:19 But the one who commits sexual uncleanness is the one who sins against his own body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. And so this exhortation is not about doing the right number of sit ups in the morning, or avoiding refined sugar. The idea of urging the Corinthians to take up jogging never came into Paul’s head.
