Apparently Corinth was the kind of city that would feel right at home in the twenty-first century. It was full of people who love the “good” life of evil vices. Into this decadence the apostle Paul sends a letter full of instruction and warning to Christian believers. He challenges them to godliness of character, true love, clean living, and unity among themselves. Not a bad or inappropriate challenge for us today. Paul understood that purity of heart and life goes hand and hand with following Christ, in a way that both honors Him and is a magnet for those considering biblical faith.
