The believers in Corinth lived amidst a culture that considered casual sex to be of little consequence (sound familiar?). Paul counters with two important assertions: (1) Sexual intercourse is not like other bodily activities (e.g. eating); it has profound and lasting effects. (2) Our spirit and our body are thoroughly joined so that Christ-in-us partakes of our sexual choices. Two important commandments follow. Flee immorality. Honor God.
