1 Corinthians 6- Judgement of the World

Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?  1 Corinthians 6:1-3

It’s funny when you mention the topic of judgment, because the first thing someone will say to you is “Don’t Judge Me”, and then they will go on to quote Matthew 7 out of context to prove their point. Little do these people know “The Saints Shall Judge The World” This would probably be a shocking revelation to most people , even to most Christians. 

Not only will you someday judge the world, but Paul says we will also judge the angels. Now of course he’s probably referring to the fallen angels that are currently in prisoned (1 Peter 3:19) How and why would Christ allow us to be the judges? Because if you are Born Again, then you are filled with the Holy Spirit, and you should be led by the Holy Spirit

If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren? But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers. 1 Corinthians 6:4-6

The Apostle Paul is also teaching us that Christians should resolve their conflicts among themselves and not in the courts for the world. A few years ago Joel Osteen had a couple of street preachers arrested and prosecuted because they rebuked his message during a service. There are many things wrong with this scenario, does the Church building of Lakewood Church belong to Joel Osteen or to God? How can Christians be trespassing on Gods property?

If Joel Osteen is a “leader” in the Church, shouldn’t he have the discernment and capability to resolve this matter outside the court system? Now I’m not in favor of disrupting a Church’s worship service, however Osteen pressing charges against Christians is in clear violation of God’s Word

Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded? Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren. 1 Corinthians 6:7-8

The Apostle Paul was calling out the Church of Corinth, they had lawsuits against one another, they defrauded one another, this Church was not treating each other as brothers and sisters, they were not conforming to the image of Christ, they were acting just like the world

The bad news for the world is judgment is coming, whether they agree with it or not. The only hope and the only way is Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen!
