1 Corinthians: Family Values

  1. Paul wishes that men and woman abstain from sex, but tells them to "come together" to avoid being tempted by Satan. 7:5

  2. Finally, after discouraging marriage for eight verses, Paul concedes that "it is better to marry than to burn." 7:9

  3. The Pauline Privilege: A believer may either keep or divorce an unbelieving spouse. 7:12-13

  4. "Else were your children unclean; but now are they holy."
    The children of nonbelievers are unclean. (But believers' kids are holy.) 7:14

  5. Those who are unmarried should never marry. 7:27
