God wants us to live by the principles He has laid down for us. That is, He wants us to live principled lives. We are not to live by our sensuality, nor are we to be lawless. Rather, we are to be disciplined.
1 Timothy 5:21 – “…maintain these principles without bias, doing nothing in a spirit of partiality.”
1 Timothy 6:2 – “…Teach and preach these principles.”
Hebrews 5:12 – “…you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God…”
2 Peter 2:4-11 – “…and if He rescued righteous Lot, oppressed by the sensual conduct of unprincipled men (for by what he saw and heard that righteous man, while living among them, felt his righteous soul tormented day after day by their lawless deeds)…”
2 Peter 3:17-18 – “…be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men and fall from your own steadfastness, but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ…”
