Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? 1 Corinthians 3:16

The emphasis here is on the entire church congregation, or local community of Christians. The Bible also refers to individual Christians (their bodies) as temples of the Holy Spirit; but here the reference is to the entire church body as the dwelling place of the Spirit. As God’s temple in the middle of a corrupt society, God’s people in Corinth were not to participate in the evil and ungodly practices so often embraced in their society. They were to reject all forms of ungodly and immoral beliefs and behaviors. God’s temple must be holy-morally pure, spiritually whole, separated from evil and dedicated completely to God-because God is holy.
