Away with sinful nature, earthly things; deaden the
evil desires lurking within you; have nothing to do with sexual sin, impurity,
lust and shameful desires, don't worship the good things of life, for that is
God's terrible anger is upon those who do such
things. You used to do them when your life was still part of this world.;
but now is the time to cast off and throw away all these rotten garments of
anger, hatred, cursing, and dirty language.
Don't tell lies to each other; it was your old life
with all its wickedness that did this sort of thing; now it is dead and
gone. You are living a brand new kind of life that is continually learning
more and more of what is right, and trying constantly to be more and more like
Christ who created this new life in you.---Col.3:5-10 (Living Bible).
The Devils do not mind if you are religious, so long as you do not open the
Bible. God's holy Word has life changing power! Jesus is the
Word of God as well as God Himself. Jesus without the Bible is impossible.
