EJ&T - 1 Corinthians: New rules for marriage, sex, diet, women, and speaking in tongues

In the Every Jot and Tittle project, I am listing all of the Bible's commandments from Genesis to Revelation, in accordance with Jesus's words in Matthew 5:18-19. I have no idea how many commandments I'll find, but Jewish tradition claims there are 613. See here for a list of those that I've found so far.

  10. Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. 1 Corinthians 5:7

  11. Stay away from fornicators, the covetous, extortioners, and idolaters.
  12. I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators. Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat. ... Put away from among yourselves that wicked person. 1 Corinthians 5:9-13

  13. Don't let unbelievers settle disputes between believers.
  14. Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren? But brother goeth to law with brother, and that before the unbelievers. Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded? 1 Corinthians 6:1-7

  19. If you can't control yourself, get married.
  20. (It's better to marry than to burn.)
    It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. 1 Corinthians 7:1-2

    I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I. But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn. 1 Corinthians 7:8-9

  21. If you marry, don't have sex.
  22. (There's no time for it. Jesus is coming.)
    The time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none. 1 Corinthians 7:29

  27. If you are circumcised, don't become uncircumcised.
  28. Is any man called being circumcised? let him not become uncircumcised. 1 Corinthians 7:18

  45. Don't murmur.
  46. Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer. 1 Corinthians 10:10

  57. Men shouldn't cover their heads.
  58. (Because a man is the image and glory of God.)

  61. Don't eat the bread and drink the cup of the Lord unworthily.
  62. (If you do, you are guilty of the body and blood of Jesus and will be damned to hell.)
    Whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. ... He that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.1 Corinthians 11:27-29

  63. Covet the best gifts.
