1 Corinthians 3:17:
Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him.
- What does that mean, “God will destroy him”. Like kill him, maim him, make his life a misery, destroy his eternal soul in hell, immediately, ultimately, soon-ish? Greek maybe takes the edge off a bit with corruption > destruction, but what does it even mean for God to ‘corrupt’ someone??
Certainly a mirror thing going on (there’ll be a fancy name I’m sure). God will do unto those (destroy) what they have done unto his (destroy).
- The Romans destroying THE temple of God (Christ) and then the temple of God (in Jerusaleum) really signed their own death notice.
- Those who set about destroying our own bodies and those of children most of all.. woe betide.
