A Sinful Example

“Now these things became our examples, to the intent that we should not lust after evil things as they also lusted.  And do not become idolaters as were some of them. As it is written, ‘The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.’  Nor let us commit sexual immorality, as some of them did, and in one day twenty-three thousand fell;  nor let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed by serpents;  nor  complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer.”  1 Corinthians 10:6-10, NKJV

This passage tells us one way the Old Testament is applicable to us today.  In addition to detailing the history of Israel and the attributes of God, it also provides “our examples, to the intent that we should not lust after evil things as they also lusted.”
