The verse from yesterday…

…that I am reflecting upon most is ‘You were bought with a price…therefore glorify God in your body.’ I think St Paul means more than just the sexuality of our bodies. Obviously he means the whole body – the temple of the Holy Spirit should be animated by the Holy Spirit in all things. The failure to strive for this drives alienation from the church – when we worship in a Gnostic fashion, thinking that what really matters is the thoughts we think while letting our bodies indulge in all sorts of behaviors that hurt other bodies and our own, others rightly view us as hypocrites. James might have had a different view of St. Paul had he read 1 Cor. 6 more closely.
