|1 Peter 4:2-3|
2 So that you should not live the rest of your time in the flesh in the lusts of men, but [live] to the will of God.1
3 For the time that is past is sufficient for us to have done what the Gentiles do, when we walked in sensuality, lusts, excess of wine, reveling [partying], banqueting, and abominable idolatries [wanting or valuing anything as much as, or more than God]. [From the Word of the Lord within: "Modesty: be modest in all things."]
|1 Corinthians 2:14|
14 But the natural man cannot receive the things of the Spirit of God5 for they are foolishness to him; neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. [The typical sect-attending Christian has no concept of sin, limiting it to murder, theft, rape; he is unaware that intolerable sin includes: adultery, pre-marital sex, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of rage, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, partying; also immorality, impurity, greed, and evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, and foolishness.]
|Ephesians 4:17-19,22 |
17 Therefore, this I say and testify in the Lord, that from this time forward you must not walk as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, [which is to think thoughts with the carnal mind of man, which must be destroyed, to be replaced by the mind of Christ. From the Word of the Lord within: "Your thoughts are not my thoughts. At best your thoughts are a vain hiss. It is many thoughts that make the mortal man. Those who follow their own brain will weep and mourn; there will be great pain. The mind is a terrible thing."] ,
18 Having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart.
19 Who being past feeling [pangs of conscience], have given themselves over to fleshly indulgences, to work all impurities with greediness.
22 Strip yourselves of your former nature that controlled your conduct, which corrupts itself through lusts and desires that spring from delusion;
