The Unrighteous Shall not Inherit
A Sermon on 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (ESV)
The relevance and topicality of the Bible; the terrible danger of being deceived; today's sins are the same as in Corinth; the deceptions of 'modern' morality : no absolute standards; the fallacy that you can have morality without godliness; the 'ethic' without the 'doctrine'; clean hands and clean hearts required by God; a moral/spiritual cleansing.
