1 Corinthians 6 broadcast
So who are the "Saints" and who are the "unjust"?
The unjust[1] were workers of iniquity who through the covetous practices and wantonness loved the Wages of unrighteousness provided by the civil fathers of the earth and the gods many of the world spoken of by Paul.
The Saints[2] are those disciples Jesus as the Christ called out and appointed the kingdom to who were to be "separate" from the world.
Since the ministers of the Church were to "occupy in the church the same positions as those which were occupied by Aaron, his sons, and the Levites in the temple." Jerome, Ep. 146 then they also would need to provide the cities of refuge which were the voluntary appeals court system.
The courts of the world use force to judge and compel recompense while the court or "judgeent seat of Christ"[3] sought the people's voluntary cooperation. The levites were similar if we are willing to understand the stoning.
If you had no inheritance in the kingdom then there was no communion, nor daily ministration and you would be at the mercy of the world.
There is a long list starting in verse 9 of people who shall not "inherit the kingdom of God".
To inherit or rather as we see here to not have a right to inherit[4] means "to receive the portion assigned to one" or "to become partaker of, to obtain".
The early Church community had a common communion through a daily ministration rooted in a voluntary charity by The Way of Pure Religion.
To turn your back on the community that is trying to attend to what Christ called the weightier matters they could be cut off from the welfare "safety net" provided through the communion of Pure Religion provided by the early Church as it "rightly divided bread from house to house".
What does he mean "make them the members of an harlot"?
Most of the adultery of the testaments is national adultery with systems not of the Bride of Christ through social compacts and covetous practices.

1 ¶ Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law[5] before the unjust, and not before the saints[2]? 2 Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged[5] by you, are ye unworthy to judge[6] the smallest matters? 3 Know ye not that we shall judge[5] angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? 4 If then ye have judgments[6] of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. 5 I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren? 6 But brother goeth to law[5] with brother, and that before the unbelievers. 7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded? 8 Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.

Unrighteous vs Righteous

9 ¶ Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves [7], nor covetous [8], nor drunkards [9], nor revilers [10], nor extortioners [11], shall inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

Things Lawful

12 ¶ All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power[12] of any. 13 Meats[13] for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body. 14 And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.[14] 15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. 16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. 17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. 18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. 19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
