Wesley's Notes for Ephesians 5:11


5:11 Reprove them - To avoid them is not enough.


People's Bible Notes for Ephesians 5:11


Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness. See Eph 5:7. Works of darkness are those which please the powers of darkness. The Christian must have nothing whatever to do with these. We must not countenance any sinful device, but rather reprove it. This would prevent the patronage of many things which the world countenances.

    My friend don't judge your body according to the worlds standard. God gave you the body you have. Enjoy the gift God has given you and don't be concerned about this thing. Keep reading the bible and you will understand.. God Bless
