A CASE OF IMMORALITY JUDGED

5.1-2 There was the case of a member of the Church of Corinth who had the wife of his own father as wife. But the Congregation had not judged this situation, and therefore had not properly ministered to the offender, so they lived with that immorality in the midst of the congregation.

5.3-5 But the Apostle had already made his judgment about it, finding that this situation should be terminated and the brother should be expelled, take away all institutional coverage, leave it at the mercy of the enemy so that through pain he recognizes his sin, repent and be saved. For Paul, the Congregation must have judged and acted with respect to the offender with the harshness that demanded a sin "that was not even given among the Gentiles."

5.6-8 Paul's demand for discipline in the Church is for a very simple reason "a little leaven leaven the whole mass," it is like an infectious focus of sin that can nurse the whole body. In verse 7 he points out that they are already "unleavened dough" but insisting on living according to their ancient nature. We see again that it is necessary to judge situations, to establish discipline and to correct them.

5.9-13 Paul points out that the Christian message is only for the Church and not for the World, because God will judge those outside. Except for certain passages, where the Lord addresses the Gentiles in a specific way (Amos 1, 2 and 3, for example) the exhortation is always for the people of God. Paul is demanding that they be able to distinguish those who are called Christians and still practice sin (that is fornicare, or miser, or idolatrous, or cursed, or drunk, or thief) and that they have no communion with them. You can not be a Christian and a practicing sinner, it is a real contradiction that there are "Churches" where the things that the Word clearly says should not be inside, such as fornication, homosexuality, effeminate, liars, etc.
