Comments on "Connivance at an incestuous person"
Paul often used individual adultery and fornication to compare it to the national adultery that Corinth and others had a problem with.
Paul shifts after mentioning fornication with your "father's wife" to talking about the people "gathered together" but fears being delivered "unto Satan" who is the adversary" of The Way of Christ.
Then he mentions a "little leaven leaveneth the whole lump" and the "leaven of malice and wickedness". The question unfolds as to what is malicious[1] and wicked[2] leaven?
Keeping the "feasts" has to do with the daily ministration and that "gathering together" in the Tens and not being "fornicators of this world" of Rome or the Corban of the Pharisees and their covetous practices. We should " not eat" the free bread of or with those who would be counted "a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner" would make us extortioners and with idolaters
"Christians are to avoid familiar converse with all who disgrace the Christian name. Such are only fit companions for their brethren in sin, and to such company they should be left, whenever it is possible to do so. Alas, that there are many called Christians, whose conversation is more dangerous than that of heathens!" Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary
Saul, Taxation, freewill offerings, welfare. wages of unrighteousness, Sabbath, The national debt clock is the result of covetous practices and failure to repent and seek the Kingdom of God.
John the Baptist told us that providing for the needy though charity rather than force was primary to repentance and seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness.

1 ¶ It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife.

2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.

3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed,


4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,

5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?

7 ¶ Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

9 ¶ I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:

10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.

11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?

13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
