Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:
While God overlooked those times of ignorance, he now calls upon all men everywhere to repent,
So, brothers, we are under obligations, but not to the physical nature, to live under its control,
1 Corinthians 6:11
Some of you used to be like that; but you have washed it all away, you have been consecrated, you have become upright, by the power of our Lord Jesus Christ and through the Spirit of our God.
1 Peter 1:14
Like obedient children, do not adapt yourselves to the cravings you used to follow when you were ignorant,
Ever since the creation of the world, his invisible nature??is eternal power and divine character??ave been clearly perceptible through what he has made. So they have no excuse,
in the midst of which you once lived under the control of the present age of the world, and the master-spirit of the air, who is still at work among the disobedient.
So what I mean and insist upon in the Lord's name is this: You must no longer live like the heathen, with their frivolity of mind and darkened understanding.
1 Thessalonians 4:5
not to gratify his passion, like the heathen who know nothing of God.
For we ourselves were once without understanding, disobedient, deluded, enslaved to all kinds of passions and pleasures. Our minds were full of malice and envy. Men hated us and we hated one another.
greed, malice, deceit, indecency, envy, abusiveness, arrogance, folly??23 all these evils come from inside, and they pollute a man."
2 Corinthians 12:21
and that when I come back my God may humiliate me before you, and I may have to mourn over many who have kept on in their old sins and have never repented of the impurity, immorality, and sensuality in which they have indulged.
The things our physical nature does are clear enough??mmorality, impurity, licentiousness,
for they have become callous, and abandoned themselves to sensuality, greedily practicing every kind of vice.
For some people have sneaked in among us??heir doom was foretold long ago??odless persons, who turn the mercy of our God into an excuse for immorality, and disown our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.
Do not get drunk on wine, for that is profligacy, but be filled with the Spirit,
envy, drunkenness, carousing, and the like. I warn you as I did before that people who do such things will have no share in the Kingdom of God.
And you once practiced them as others do, when you lived that old earthly life.
