In 1 Corinthians 7, Paul responds to various questions from the Corinthians regarding asceticism, celibacy, and marriage, among other issues. He offers advice on remaining celibate, addressing temptation, and the moral implications of sex and marriage. Paul also discusses divorce, remarriage, and being married to non-believers. He emphasizes the importance of serving God without distraction and prioritizing eternal judgments over temporal comforts. Ultimately, he suggests that individuals should follow their own calling to serve God.
