Therefore be imitators of God, as His dear children.
And live and act lovingly, as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up to death on our behalf as an offering and sacrifice to God, yielding a fragrant odor.
But fornication and every kind of impurity, or covetousness, let them not even be mentioned among you, for they ought not to be named among God's people.
Avoid shameful and foolish talk and low jesting--they are all alike discreditable--and in place of these give thanks.
For be well assured that no fornicator or immoral person and no money-grubber--or in other words idol-worshipper--has any share awaiting him in the Kingdom of Christ and of God.
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for it is on account of these very sins that God's anger is coming upon the disobedient.
