What I learned this morning
I was getting into God's Word this morning, and came across 1 Corinthians 3:16-17, in which, even on Godvine's site when it was active, where people would use this verse concerning suicide. Since I am a firm believer that suicide does not nullify someone's salvation, I got to thinking about it, and started to check up on the meaning of these verses, since the interpretation contradicts what I believe about suicide.
Upon reading more about it, I found out a detail that many misses out on; "You yourselves" (plural). If Paul was speaking about each individual, he would have said "you yourself", but he didn't not say that. So, he is referring to the church as a whole. Basically, what the atheists these days are trying to do, destroy the church.
1 Corinthians 6:20 refers to the individual person's body, and that verse does not mention that God will destroy. Verses 19 and 20 explains why the sin of homosexuality, along with all other sexual sin is so destructive.
