The scripture references below go with today’s post of A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.
Exodus 20:7 (One of the Ten Commandments to the people of God was not to take the name of the Lord in vain. Bringing dishonor to His name would certainly be to take it in vain. If we seek to take it, let us seek to take it in truth, sincerity, and honor.)
Romans 2:24 (God forbid that this should be said of us.)
2 Timothy 2:19 (To “abstain from wickedness” leaves no room for tolerance of, or compromise with, sin.)
Titus 2:6-8 (Do this and you will have fulfilled the admonition of 2 Timothy 2:19.)
