  • The bible calls our bodies "His temples" .. Maybe it refers to us not caring for our bodies, or sinning with them ~~ IDK

  • What Christy said! The Holy Spirit dwells within us,so we should keep our bodies pure from sin. Caring for our bodies is a show of good stewardship as they don't belong to us, but God Who bought them with the blood of Christ. The passages Christy gave would include sinning against another.

    1 Cor. 3:17--" If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. "

  • It does state in the bibe that our bodies are our temples and we shouldn cause any harm to ourselves because they do belong to God in a way. Our Bodies were a gift and just like any materialistic gift that you love you and receieve. first instincts are to take care of it and nerture it and make sure you get all you can (pleasure) from it. But now aday Please has been tainted and what most feel is pleasure is actually curupting the human body such as smoking and doing drugs or even eating wrong. so i guess what he really means by "he will destroy those who defile the temple of God" ,eaning those who dont take care of themselves wont live long So basically keep your body healthy and pure of certain stuff not for God himself but for your own well being he wants you to gain all the pleasures in Life and without a healthy body you cant do so..well thats my interpertation.
