The following is an excerpt from the macarthur new testament commentary on 1 corinthians 15.
.
.
do not be deceived: “bad company corrupts good morals.” become sober–minded as you ought, and stop sinning; for some have no knowledge of god. i speak this to your shame. (1 corinthians15:33–34)
.
.
paul warned the corinthians that they should not be deceived about the danger of bad company. homilia (company) basically means an association of people, but also can have the connotation of a lecture or sermon. it seems possible, therefore, that the corinthians were both listening to some wrong teaching and associating with some evil people. whether the teaching was in formal messages or not, it was bad and corrupting.
.
.
people who think wrongly invariably behave wrongly. wrong behavior comes from wrong thinking, from wrong beliefs and wrong standards. it is impossible to associate regularly with wicked people without being contaminated both by their ideas and by their habits. the context implies that the bad company was teaching the heretical theology that there is no resurrection of the dead, and that bad theology had corrupted good morals.
.
.
one incentive the hope of resurrection gives is for sanctification. looking forward to resurrection should lead to more godly living and spiritual maturity. denying the resurrection destroys the incentives both for service and for sanctification. why then bother serving the lord or serving others in his name, and why bother to be holy and pure?
.
.
just as hoping in the resurrection is an incentive to obedience and holiness, so disbelief of it is an incentive to disobedience and immorality. as paul has just pointed out, if there is no resurrection, we might as well eat and drink, for tomorrow we die. if death is the end, what great difference does it make what we do?
.
.
some in the corinthian congregation had no knowledge of god, and therefore no knowledge of his truth. their bad theology was leading to bad behavior, especially because they denied the resurrection.

“therefore do not become partners with them; for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the lord. walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true)” (eph. 5:7-9).
.

separatism, in the sense of total withdrawal from the world, has appeared at various points in church history. many ancient christian ascetics led solitary lives in the desert because they wanted to battle satan in a setting free from worldly temptations. some groups in our country, such as the amish, form closed communities with limited access to the surrounding culture. basing their practices on texts such as 1 corinthians 15:33 (“bad company ruins good morals”), such christians believe limiting contact with the world is essential for holy living.

we may sympathize with this separatist impulse, living as we do in an ungodly culture. absolute withdrawal from the world, however, is not what the apostle has in mind in texts such as 1 corinthians 15:33. after all, in the same epistle paul tells us that the separation he encourages is not separation from unbelievers who live ungodly lifestyles but from professing believers who celebrate their sin (5:9–13). he confirms this point in today’s passage. we are not to become partners with those who attempt to deceive us through empty words — people who teach that s****l immorality and covetousness are compatible with faith in christ (eph. 5:3–6). we can — and must — have friendships with non-christians without engaging in their ungodly behavior or approving it, for god may work through us to win them to jesus. but we must be willing to rebuke professing christians who engage impenitently in sin. this may even mean withdrawing from them if they sin obstinately and yet continue to claim the name of jesus.

once we were darkness; now we are light in the lord (vv. 7–8). therefore, we can no longer live as if we were still in adam and approve of sin; rather, we must walk in the light of christ (1 john 1:7). we must expect others who profess to be in the light to walk in the light as well — to exhibit the virtues of goodness, righteousness, and truth (eph. 5:9). sinless (👇)

For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? mark 8:36-37
give your life to jesus today, tomorrow might be too late. there is no repentance in hell, hell is a place of everlasting torment, repent for the kingdom of god is at hand. #believe #praisegod🙌🙌🙌 *

#Рассказ 2 РАССТРЕЛА. Суд Божий и суд человеческий.
В 1950-ом году сосед, живший с ними через два дома и работавший в сельсовете, вызвал Виталия. Приказ был из "тех самых" органов: или письменное отречение, или расстрел. - Отречься? От Бога? Нет!
Руками уже держалась винтовка, и борец с "буржуазными пережитками" выстрелил. Пуля обожгла грудь, прожгла до дыры рубаху, но отрикошетив от нательного крестика самому стрелявшему отстрелила палец. ⚡Еще один расстрел батюшка пережил через восемь лет, уже будучи в Почаеве. Вызов в Кременец. Опять расстрел. Дымился продырявленный подрясник, но на этот раз пулю "не пустило" маленькое мамино карманное Евангелие в кожаном переплёте. А через 3 дня стрелявший, начальник местного КГБ, был застрелен на охоте: он лежал за кустами и загорал; собаки, рыскавшие в поисках дичи, нарвавшись на него, загавкали. Охотники же подумали, что там зверь. Весы у Господа точны и не замедлит, бывает, суд; правда, не каждый этот суд рассмотрит - призыв ещё одной души на #Суд Божий был признан несчастным случаем. "Ну, что хотел, то и получил", - говорил позже со скорбью о. Макарий. И часто потом слышали мы от батюшки слова его старцев: "Смерть не страшит, страшат дела - не смерти надо бояться, а греха!" Жизнеописание схиархимандрита Макария (Болотова)
