1 Corinthians 6:18 was written to brand new believers in the ancient city of Corinth. Most of them had been raised as pagan idol worshippers in a city that was famous for its temple to Aphrodite the Greek goddess of love. The way you worshipped Aphrodite was to go to her temple and sleep with a prostitute. There were female and male prostitutes who worked at the temple. The city was so famous in the Roman Empire for carousing that the word “Corinthianizing” became slang for sexual immorality throughout the empire. Then the Apostle Paul, who wrote this letter came to Corinth and preached the Good news of Jesus Christ to these people. Some belived in Jesus through the power of the Spirit. They were saved out of the only culture they had ever known. In fact, Paul implies later in the letter that many of those new believers had been prostitutes at Aphrodite’s temple….both male and female! So when Paul told them to flee from sexual immorality he wasn’t trying to condemn them…he was raising the bar higher than the standard of the culture around them. He was trying to establish one idea in their minds….when it comes sexual immorality It Is Your Fault. It doesn’t matter how a women dreses. It doesn’t matter how she flirts with you. It doesn’t matter the kind of things that are available on Netflix or Facebook and how they lead us to lust. Lust starts in your heart first long before it shows up in your body! I have to make a decision that I am going to take responsibility for my actions by taking responsibility for what I allow into my heart. Thats why Job 31:1 is such a great Scripture to memorize. This was Job’s confession: “I made a covenant (promise) with my eyes to not look lustfully at a girl.” It was his declaration of personal responsibility. Will it be ours?
