Your body is God's temple
Where dwells the Spirit of the Lord,
If indeed Jesus be in you ?
Abiding presence of the Lord.
But if God's Spirit is NOT in you
Then this I now you relate
You are illegitimate -
A stinking reprobate.

But should the Spirit of Jesus
Dwell in you and you are sure;
Then be not joined to the harlot
Or the adulterous whore.

'cause you are God's temple
Christ in you does dwell;
But if you live in fornication
God will cast you into hell !

1 Corinthians 6:14-20; 2 Corinthians 13:5-7
