The Corinthians were a sexually perverse and sexually liberated culture. They sought to justify their lifestyle by appealing to law and to nature, even comparing sexual desire to hunger. People are more than food, and we are more than just our desires. Paul responds wisely and goes on to explain why sexual sins are so destructive. This isn’t just about a list of “good” and “bad” things that add up to get us to heaven, sin is literally destructive to us in deep ways. Jesus came to give us life and redeem us from our sins.
