The culture of the Corinthians said, "Go ahead commit sexual immorality – God won’t mind – God is okay with it." The Corinthian city was evil because they practiced "Sexual immorality in the temple of Aphrodite."

Paul warns them, "Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit – do not defile it or the Spirit will leave! These sinful acts will destroy your temple."
