It seems the members of the church in Corinth, very much like the culture of the people of that city, held to wide ranging views about the place of their ‘bodies’ within the Christian life. Some held the view that it was immaterial what you did with your body, and so, a visit to a Temple prostitute was of no concern. Others held to a much more stricter view (also known as asceticism) that any contact with the body was purely sinful. in 1 Corinthians 6;12-20, the Apostle Paul finds a middle ground between these two extremes, reminding his readers and therefore us, of what God has to say about our bodies, which in the end, belong to Him!
