12 What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside?

Matthew Henry's Commentary on 1 Corinthians 5:12

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!
