Christ or Belial
II Corinthians 6:14 – 7:1
I. Unequally Yoked (vs.14-18)
Do not be yoked together with unbelievers.
- II Corinthians 6:14a
14b For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?
15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial ? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?
16a What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols?
- II Corinthians 6:14b-16a
16b For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people.”
17 Therefore, “Come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.”
18 And, “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”
- II Corinthians 16:b-18
II. Holiness (vs.7:1)
A) What it is not
B) What it is
Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.
- II Corinthians 7:1
