Tuesday, September 18

Sexual immorality is reported among you, and such immorality as is not even found among the nations.—1 Cor. 5:1.


We can contribute to the spiritual cleanness of the congregation by following the direction found in God’s Word. Consider the situation in ancient Corinth. Paul had poured himself out preaching in that city, and he loved his fellow “holy ones” there. (1 Cor. 1:1, 2) But how troubling it must have been for him to have to address the problem of sexual immorality that was being tolerated in that congregation! Paul directed the elders to hand the immoral man over to Satan—in other words, to disfellowship him. To preserve the congregation’s purity, the elders needed to clear out the “leaven.” (1 Cor. 5:5-7, 12) When we support the elders’ decision to disfellowship an unrepentant wrongdoer, we help to maintain the cleanness of the congregation and perhaps move the person to repent and seek Jehovah’s forgiveness. w16.11 2:14

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

In a certain group on facebook ( which I am no longer part of) A sister was asking brothers how many wives they would have married if polygamy was still allowed in Christianity and a bunch of brothers were giving different numbers. I however, did not find that question to be clean and up building. I couldn't hide how disappointed I was that it was a sister who brought that question up given how polygamy didn't bring any happiness to women in bible times.

Anyways, my point in respect to this topic has to do with what we think and discuss. If you think bad thoughts, you will act badly. Some conversations ought not be encouraged at all.
