And it is 2 Corinthians 10: 6 not 1 Corinthianns 10: 6....had to correct this error.

No! This whole selection is the Apostle Paul telling how God punished those in the OT who didn't listen to Him. He's now telling them to do what God wants, or they might be next. (These events in the OT are to be examples to them as to what He can do.) The important thing here is that it's God who is doing the correcting and not other Christians. While there is scripture to indicate measures Christians are to take to correct another CHRISTIAN, this is not one of them.

When we are obeying Christ, and we witness any so-called christians disobeying Christ, then we are obligated to confront them and pray with them in order to bring about edification, and not destruction; as Paul states in verse 8.

I think someone ought to read what they wrote themself, before talking about others.

1st, the writer is paul. 2nd, he is writing believers. 3rd, this has to do with a spiritual warfare. Preparing ourselves to battle Satan and all evil. Ephesians 6:10-19, put on the whole armour of God. To make known the MYSTERY of the gospel.

Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such a one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
Heaven help us when we become so touchy-feely that we cannot admonish one another in the spirit without anger.

If you start at vs 1,it refers to when the Israelites were in the desert.They all ate and drank the same spiritual food,all passed under the cloud and thru the sea,but God was not happy with them,and kept them wandering until they had all died in the desert.We're told that this should be our example, not to lust after things the way they did.If He could destroy the people He singled out to be His chosen ones because they disobeyed,He will punish us as well.I'd rather be on His good side than His bad.
