Paul preaches about God’s promised inheritance for his children all through the New Testament churches, but he also tells them that their actions have consequences. Over and over he lists examples of sinful lifestyles that will keep them from this inheritance. He warns these churches to not be deceived

“1Co 6:9 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, 1Co 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”
