You have become arrogant and have not mourned instead, so that the one who had done this deed would be removed from your midst. 1 Corinthians 5:2
Has the Grace of God made you arrogant rather than remorseful? We know those Christians, who like to flaunt around their sin and play the grace card. We see more and more “Liberal Churches” who actually embrace a sinful lifestyle rather than mourning their sin. This is a heresy, anyone who doesn’t mourn and repent of their sin is not saved
Paul visited the Church of Corinth and found a lot of immortality going on in the church. And instead of the people repenting of this sin, they were embracing it, sound familiar?
For I, on my part, though absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged him who has so committed this, as though I were present. 1 Corinthians 5:3
Paul , being the Church leader, rebuked and judged the person responsible for this heresy. How many pastors or church leaders today are calling out their members who live in sin? Probably nobody, because we rather please people than keep than on the narrow path of eternal life
Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough? 1 Corinthians 5:6
Again Paul is calling out the heretic, and tells him your sin will corrupt the Church. A little leaven (which is symbolic for sin) leavens (corrupts) the whole lump (Church)
Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, just as you are in fact unleavened. For Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed. 1 Corinthians 5:7
Clean out the Sin for Jesus is our Passover, Jesus took the atonement for our sins! This is not a license to continually sin, mourn of your old sins and become Born Again! Don’t allow sin to corrupt you or the Church, clean them out!
