The temple of God is very dear to our Lord. Therefore how we treat it is also of great importance to the Holy Spirit. There are two instances (Matthew 21 and John 2) in the Gospels where Christ deals with the people in the temple directly. Christ deals with corruption directly in his Temple and it is up to us (the body) to ensure that it is not tolerated and does not persist. The Holy Spirit cannot act in a place that is not dedicated wholly to the Lord. Corruption in the Church body effectively undermines the work of the Lord
