Remain as you were (1 Cor. 7:20)

“Everyone should remain

In the state

In which he was called.”

ἕκαστος ἐν τῇ κλήσει ᾗ ἐκλήθη, ἐν ταύτῃ μενέτω.

Paul said that everyone or each one (ἕκαστος), who was called (ᾗ ἐκλήθη), should remain in the state (ἐν ταύτῃ μενέτω) in which he was called (ἐν τῇ κλήσει).  Paul was clear.  Each and every one of them should remain or stay in the same state or condition that they had prior to their call as a Christian follower.  The new calling to be a Christian was not a call to change their social life.  It was a spiritual call to change their hearts. Do you have a social group of people who are Christian?
