Paul's letter to the American Church?
In ancient Corinth, the problem was getting the Corinthian church to stop going to the pagan temples, temple prostitutes, temple system. Even temple provision (food sacrificed to Idols). Whores were coming into the church (covered heads and all) getting saved, but compromise was everywhere. We have the same thing going on right here right now in our corrupted culture. People are all about "I Love Jesus" and in an hour are in the temple watching corrupted TV, listening to corrupted music, making corrupted money in corrupt ways, and consuming all kinds of corrupted influences from around them not knowing that just saying "I Love Jesus" isn't enough. We must be transformed into HIS IMAGE. IF Paul were writing to the Church in America, it would be much more severe than he ever was on the Corinthians. IF we don't separate ourselves from a corrupting culture we will be and remain corrupt.
