1 Corinthians 8:8
Food will not commend us to God. We are no worse off if we do not eat, and no better off if we do.
1 Corinthians 6:9
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
2 Corinthians 8:21
For we aim at what is honorable not only in the Lord's sight but also in the sight of man.
