    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:15

    ¿No sabis que vuestros cuerpos son miembros de Cristo? ¿Quitar pues los miembros de Cristo, y los har miembros de una ramera? De ninguna manera.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 6:15

    Verse 15. Know ye not that your bodies are the members of
    Christ?] Because he has taken your nature upon him, and thus, as believers in him, ye are the members of Christ.

    Shall I then take, &c.] Shall we, who profess to be members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones, connect ourselves with harlots, and thus dishonour and pollute the bodies which are members of Christ? God forbid! These passages admit of a more literal interpretation. This, if given at all, I must give in a strange language.

    Membra humana, ad generationem pertinentia, vocantur Membra Christi, quia mysterium conjunctionis Christi et Ecclesiae per conjunctionem maris et faeminae indigitatur, Eph. v. 32. In Vet. Test. idem valebat de membro masculino, guippe quod circumcisione, tanquam signo faederis, honouratum est. Vide Schoettgen, Hor. Hebr.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. Know ye not that your bodies are the members, of Christ , etc.] The whole persons of Gods elect were chosen in Christ, and given to him, and made one with him, their bodies as well as their souls; and both are redeemed by him, and, in union with him, are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones: shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid . Signifying, that it is a most absurd, indecent, abominable, and detestable thing, that the bodies of the saints, which are the members of Christ, should be joined in carnal copulation with an harlot.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-20 - Some among the Corinthians seem to have been ready to say, All thing are
    lawful for me. This dangerous conceit St. Paul opposes. There is liberty wherewith Christ has made us free, in which we must stand fast But surely a Christian would never put himself into the power of an bodily appetite. The body is for the Lord; is to be an instrument of righteousness to holiness, therefore is never to be made an instrumen of sin. It is an honour to the body, that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead; and it will be an honour to our bodies, that they will be raised. The hope of a resurrection to glory, should keep Christian from dishonouring their bodies by fleshly lusts. And if the soul be united to Christ by faith, the whole man is become a member of his spiritual body. Other vices may be conquered in fight; that her cautioned against, only by flight. And vast multitudes are cut off by this vice in its various forms and consequences. Its effects fall no only directly upon the body, but often upon the mind. Our bodies have been redeemed from deserved condemnation and hopeless slavery by the atoning sacrifice of Christ. We are to be clean, as vessels fitted for our Master's use. Being united to Christ as one spirit, and bought with a price of unspeakable value, the believer should consider himself a wholly the Lord's, by the strongest ties. May we make it our business to the latest day and hour of our lives, to glorify God with ou bodies, and with our spirits which are his __________________________________________________________________

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    15. Members of
    Christ. The body is not only for the Lord (ver. 13), adapted for Him: it is also united with Him. See Eph. iv. 16.

    Members of a harlot. The union of man and woman, whether lawful or unlawful, confers a double personality. Fornication effects this result in an immoral way.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:15 {Members of Christ} (mele cristou). Old word for limbs, members. Even the Stoics held the body to be common with the animals (Epictetus, _Diss_. l. iii. 1) and only the reason like the gods. Without doubt some forms of modern evolution have contributed to the lascivious views of animalistic sex indulgence, though the best teachers of biology show that in the higher animals monogamy is the rule. The body is not only adapted for Christ (verse #13), but it is a part of Christ, in vital union with him. Paul will make much use of this figure further on (#12:12-31; Eph 4:11-16; 5:30). {Shall I qen take away?} (aras oun;). First aorist active participle of air", old verb to snatch, carry off like Latin _rapio_ (our rape). {Make} (poiesw). Can be either future active indicative or first aorist active subjunctive (deliberative). Either makes good sense. The horror of deliberately taking "members of Christ" and making them "members of a harlot" in an actual union staggers Paul and should stagger us. {God forbid} (me genoito). Optative second aorist in a negative wish for the future. {May it not happen!} The word "God" is not here. The idiom is common in Epictetus though rare in the LXX. Paul has it thirteen times and Luke once (#Lu 20:16).
