11 But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister[1] but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on 1 Corinthians 5:11

Commentary on 1 Corinthians 5:9-13

(Read 1 Corinthians 5:9-13)

Christians are to avoid familiar converse with all who disgrace the Christian name. Such are only fit companions for their brethren in sin, and to such company they should be left, whenever it is possible to do so. Alas, that there are many called Christians, whose conversation is more dangerous than that of heathens!
