Evil Communications Corrupt Good Manners

1 Corinthians 15:32-34

1 Corinthians 15 deals extensively with the interesting subject of the resurrection. Along with this vital subject, many other pertinent truths are revealed within the confines of this chapter. Nestled in verse 33 is our subject at hand: “Evil communications corrupt good manners.”

At first glance this verse seems misplaced in relation to the resurrection. Upon closer examination, we see that it is a vital link in our preparation for the first resurrection. Though all will be resurrected, not all will come forth to the resurrection of life. Some will come forth to the resurrection of damnation (John 5:29). Let us consider carefully the correlation of our subject to being prepared for the first resurrection.
