A Christian’s Body Is The Temple Of The Holy Ghost

I Corinthians 6:18-19 reads “Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?”

What is Paul’s simple argument here?. Our “body is the temple of the Holy Ghost,” therefore don’t defile the Holy Spirit’s temple by sinning with/against the body.

When we sin, the Holy Ghost (God’s “seal” of approval – Eph 1:13-14) has to leave us (see also Psalms 51:11b)

Verse 19 says “the Holy Ghost … is in you.” Many Christians don’t really believe the Holy Ghost is actually in them, do they?
