Discussion for 2 Corinthians 6

  • A disciple
    Hi Kurt; I like what you said regarding "our own whims, emotions, and personalities," and that "we must keep the discipline of God's intentions within us." The Word, "LET this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus;" like in the Proverbs, "LET thine heart retain MY WORDS;" our discipleship is toward moral excellence out of a good and honest heart, PROVING what is acceptable TO GOD in TRUTH.
  • Kurt
    How can we bring the Gospel to sinners without sinning? Take another Christian and have an entry and exit plan. Arm yourself with the Truth (Jesus), and the Spirit. Allow God to work his love towards sinners thru us, yet remain safely separate in the Armour, lest we may fall. We are subject to our own whims, emotions, and personalities, yet we must keep the discipline of God's intentions within us

    Galatians 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
  • BSP
    Verse 2 is quoting Isaiah 49:8. Now is the especially acceptable time. We don't want to miss the purpose of God's undeserved kindness.
  • Bruce
    Jim: Yes, Unevenly Yoked in anything: But its mostly used for Marriage. Most believe They Will draw the other to Christ,But---? One Looks to The Light the other to Darkness. We can help the Lost. I will help anyone with almost anything,the Price: Hearing The Way of Salvation. I sometimes take them Fishing or invite for Supper. Sometimes One will go to Church.
  • Jim Kirkpatrick
    Being unequally yoked with unbelievers is correct, but it means not to run with them not to restrain from witnessing to them.
