    Remember, it's a sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.

    Therefore, since these [great] promises are ours, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that contaminates and defiles our body and spirit, and bring [our] consecration to completeness in the [reverential] fear of God.

    2 Corinthians 5:14, 15
    For the love of Christ controls and urges and impels us, because we are of the opinion and conviction that [if] One died for all, then all died. And He died for all, so that all those who live might live no longer to and for themselves, but to and for Him Who died and was raised again for their sake.

    James 4:7-10
    So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw close to God, and God will draw close to you. Wash you hands, you sinners; purify your hearts, you hypocrites.Let there be tears for the wrong things you have done. Let there be sorrow and deep grief. Let there be sadness instead of laughter, and gloom instead of joy. When you bow down before the LORD and admit your dependence on Him, He will lift you up and give you honor.

    2 Corinthians 5:10
    For we must all appear and be revealed as we are before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each on may receive [his pay] according to what he has done in the body, whether good or evil
    [considering what his purpose and motive have been, and what he has achieved, been busy with, and given himself and his attention to accomplishing].

    Dear brothers and sisters, what's the use of saying you have faith if you don't prove it by your actions? That kind of faith can't save anyone.

    Dear brothers and sisters, don't be childish in your understanding of these things. Be innocent as babies when it comes to evil, but be mature and wise in understanding matters of this kind.

    Temptation comes from the lure of your own evil desires. These evil desires lead to actions, and evil actions lead to death. So don't be mislead, my dear brothers and sisters.

    Do you not see and know that your bodies are members (bodily parts) of Christ (the Messiah)? Am I therefore to take the parts of Christ and make [them] parts of the prostitute? Never! Never!

    1 Corinthians 6:19, 20
    Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sactuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? You are not your own,
    You were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own]. So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body.

    Hebrews 12:1
    Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily hinders our progress. And let us run with endurance the race that God has set before us.

    Hebrews 12:12, 13
    So take a new grip with your tired hands and stand firm on your shaky legs.
    Mark out a straight path for your feet . Then those who follow you, though they are weak and lame, will not stumble and fall but will become strong.

    Psalm 11:5, 7
    5) The LORD tests and proves the [unyeildingly] righteous, but His soul abhors the wicked and him who loved violence.
    7) For the LORD is [rigidly] righteous and loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold His face, or He beholds the upright.

    Romans 16:17, 18
    I appeal to you, brethren, to be on your guard concerning those who create dissensions and difficulties and cause divisions, in opposition to the doctrine (the teaching) which you have been taught. [I warn you to turn aside from them, to] avoid them. For such persons do not serve our LORD Christ but their own appetites and base desires, and by ingratiating and flattering speach, they beguile the hearts of the unsuspecting and simpleminded [people].

    Dear friends, if we diliberately continue sinning after we have received a full knowledge of the truth, there is no other sacrifice that will cover these sins.

    Hebrews 5:11-14
    There is so much more we would like to say about this. But you don't seem to listen, so it's hard to make you understand. You have been Christians a long time now, and you ought to be teaching others. Instead, you need someone to teach you again the basic things a beginner must learn about the Scriptures. You are like babies who drink only milk and cannot eat solid food. And a person who is living on milk isn't very far along in the Christian life and doesn't know much about doing what is right. Solid food is for those who are mature, who have trained themselves to recognize the difference between right and wrong and then do what is right.
