Sexual Sin in the Church, March 4-10

1 Corinthians 5:1-13

Message Outline

According to 1 Corinthians 5 in the Bible, we should remove an immoral person from our fellowship:


Because it may save him



Because he will damage the group



Because we are to judge those inside


Group Discussion Questions

  1. Have you ever confronted a friend over a sin or problem in their life? Have you ever had to remove someone from a classroom, job, sports team, or even remove a child from your home? What motivated you to do it and what was the result?
  2. How could it help a person to remove them from the fellowship? What should be our motivation according to verse 5? Have you seen someone finally get help after hitting rock bottom?
  3. How can leaving an immoral person in the fellowship hurt the whole group? (see verses 6-7). Explain the metaphor of yeast. What are other similar common sense metaphors or sayings that make a similar point?
  4. How should the way we treat people outside the church differ from how we relate with those inside the church according to verses 9-13? How do Christians sometimes get that backward and do the opposite?
  5. How have you seen churches miss-apply the truth in 1 Corinthians 5? What are some dangers we should avoid?
  6. How could we apply 1 Corinthians 5 in a healthy way at Christ Fellowship? In our group? What might it actually look like in practice?
