1 Corinthians 6:12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are notexpedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought underthe power of any.

1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of theHoly Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

2 Corinthians 3:1 Do we begin again to commend ourselves? or need we, assome others, epistles of commendation to you, or letters of commendationfrom you?
2 Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men:

2 Corinthians 5:1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernaclewere dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands,eternal in the heavens.

3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.
4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for thatwe would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowedup of life.
5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hathgiven unto us the earnest of the Spirit.

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are thetemple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walkin them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord,and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters,saith the Lord Almighty.

22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God throughthe Spirit.
