1 Corinthians 5:1-13, NLT
1 Corinthians 5
Paul Condemns Spiritual Pride
1I can hardly believe the report about the sexual immorality going on among you—something that even pagans don’t do. I am told that a man in your church is living in sin with his stepmother.*5:1 Greek his father’s wife.
3Even though I am not with you in person, I am with you in the Spirit.*5:3 Or in spirit. And as though I were there, I have already passed judgment on this man
6Your boasting about this is terrible. Don’t you realize that this sin is like a little yeast that spreads through the whole batch of dough?
9When I wrote to you before, I told you not to associate with people who indulge in sexual sin.
12It isn’t my responsibility to judge outsiders, but it certainly is your responsibility to judge those inside the church who are sinning.
