15Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not!

16Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For "the two," He says, "shall become one flesh."

Some of the Corinthian Christians had been going into Prostitutes as a part of their partaking in the pagan feasts that abounded there. Their pagan neighbours would hold feasts in honour of their God's with food offered to their idols. But associated with these feasts was the practice of lying with prostitutes.

Paul shows them that they are defiling their own bodies by doing this, and indeed the body of Christ.
