[scripture dispatch] God will destroy him

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.

  1. 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).
  2. The Romans destroying THE temple of God (Christ) and then the temple of God (in Jerusaleum) really signed their own death notice.
  3. Those who set about destroying our own bodies and those of children most of all.. woe betide.
