1 Corinthians 6:6-10 New International Version

6  But instead, one brother takes another to court-and this in front of unbelievers! 7  The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you have been completely defeated already. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated? 8  Instead, you yourselves cheat and do wrong, and you do this to your brothers and sisters.

9  Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men[1] 10  nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.


[1] 6:9 The words "men who have sex with men" translate two Greek words that refer to the passive and active participants in homosexual acts.
