1 Corinthians chapter 5 verses 3 to 4

Verses 3 to 5.

The woman involved isn’t mentioned… Perhaps she was not a member the church.  The man however was a member of the church and Paul says some serious things about him.

Paul says, ‘I have already judged him’

Then he says

I have decided,

 ‘5 I have decided to deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of his flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. 1 Corinthians 5:5’

Paul really loves this man’s soul and he wants him to be saved.  Even if it means his body being destroyed…

Paul is an apostle. What would happen if this man was truly sorry for his sins?

That he turns his back on the sin… Would he be truly forgiven? Can he be forgiven?  Does the work of Christ have compassion for this man’s soul?

I think it does… If you have time have a read of 2 Corinthians 2: 5-11.  He didn’t get excommunicated, rather, possibly after 6 months, he was forgiven and reinstated…
