Sex and Courts – Discussion Questions
Questions for Discussion:
1. Was Paul’s recommendation that a member of the congregation
be expelled justifiable?
2. Is the category of “holiness,” which may have motivated Paul’s judgment, something that makes sense today? If so, what does it mean? Should the Christian community be concerned to be “holy.”
3. Are there grounds on which you would want to exclude a member of your congregation? If so, what would they be?
4. What do you make of Paul’s insistence on the relevance of the “body” for the moral and spiritual life? In what ways does modern society challenge or support that claim?
