1 Corinthians 6:5
5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?
In verse 4 we understood Paul as using hyperbole when he said, set a despised person over you as judge! Why did he say that? He answers our question, I speak to your shame… His thought continues to develop the case for not going before the secular law to have their disputes in the church decided.
Is there not a wise man among you? No, not one? There must be at least one wise person in the church who can sit and judge between his brethren. Paul’s point? Remember who you are! Look around you!
