Daily Bible Nugget #646, 1 Corinthians 3:17

The Nugget:

1Co 3:17  If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. (KJV)

1Co 3:17 If someone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, which is what you are. (NET Bible)

1Co 3:17 If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple. (ESV)

My Comment:

God’s Temple is holy. You are that temple! This has many applications. We must not defile our minds with inappropriate content. We must not destroy our bodies by partaking of anything in our diet that is destructive to our health. This means, for the genuine Bible believing Christian, no tobacco in any form; no beer, wine, or stronger alcoholic beverages whatsoever, and positively no illicit drugs. I have written of these matters in prior posts (see https://www.realbiblestudy.com/?p=3389).

This also includes taking unidentified as to content and side-effects any supposed vaccine that is “experimental” and that has not gone through the full course of animal and human testing before being officially approved for administration at large to the human public. The current misnamed “vaccine” is not a vaccine and it has not yet been approved but falsely given “emergency status.” By law, such status is not allowable if there are other effective treatments available. Such treatments are available and have been for a long time. It is wise to be extremely wary when governments at large worldwide, the UN, the major mass media, and supposed representatives of the scientific community all agree in unison (with no dissenting voices allowed a hearing), to promote an experimental unproven “remedy” to the exclusion of all other known and effective alternative non-vaccine remedies.

You need to be able to spot propaganda when you see and hear it! Jesus told us to be “wise as serpents and harmless as doves” (Matthew 10:16). Paul cautioned us to “prove all things, hold fast to that which is good” (1 Thessalonians 5: 21). This means do your own careful research using independent reliable multiple sources for information. The writer of Hebrews tells us we must “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14). If we do  not strenuously and diligently pursue holiness we will not see the Lord. The necessary inference is that we will not be saved.

That “God will destroy him” has far reaching and eternal consequences in light of what Jesus said:

Mat 10:28  And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

Paul instructs us:

1Ti 1:19  Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:

Note that Paul speaks to Timothy about some who have “thrust away” the faith and in so doing have acted in disregard to their informed and good conscience. The consequence is that such persons have “made shipwreck” concerning the faith. In plain language, they have abandoned the faith and have committed apostasy and have lost their salvation.

In terms of contemporary events and current news today, the Bible passages I have cited above together with the associated notes and cross references I have provided in both The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge and The Ultimate Cross Reference Treasury will provide any genuine Bible believing Christian some Bible basis for asserting conscientious objector status in applying for religious exemption to some of the current unlawful and unconstitutional demands for universal military vaccination against the Covid 19 with the assistance of appropriate legal counsel as necessary. These passages also would provide  support for civilians to assert religious objections against being required to take the current non-vaccine for the alleged corona virus in its many varieties.

We all must take the time and effort to be scientifically and biblically informed in order to guide us in our decision making.

    Thank you for the uplifting scriptures! I took this into great consideration in spite of everything occurring in our communities and within our workplace. It has been really difficult in deciding how to proceed in these harsh times with Covid and the vaccine mandates, but these scriptures your words gave me the confidence I desired. Thank you!
