1 Peter 4:1-6 - The Time For Behaving Like The Gentiles Is Past

1 Since Christ therefore has suffered in our physical nature, you must also arm yourselves with the same resolve. For he who suffers in his physical nature has done with sin, 2 and no longer lives by what men desire, but for the rest of his earthly life by what God wills. 3 You have spent time enough in the past in doing as the heathen like to do, indulging in sensuality, passion, drunkenness, carousing, dissipation, and detestable idolatry. 4 They are amazed that you no longer join them in plunging into the flood of dissipation, and they abuse you for it; 5 but they will have to answer for it to him who is ready to judge living and dead. 6 This is why the good news was preached to the dead also, that though they are judged in their physical nature as men are, they may yet live, like God, in the Spirit.
