God's Whistleblower

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness,
but instead expose them.
Ephesians 5:11 (ESV)

Those who live according to the flesh
set their minds on the things of the flesh;
but those who live according to the Spirit
set their minds on the things of the Spirit.
The mind of the flesh is death,
but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace,
because the mind of the flesh is hostile to God:
It does not submit to God’s law,
nor can it do so.
Those controlled by the flesh
cannot please God.
Romans 8:5-8 (BSB)

Treat older women as you would your mother,
and treat younger women with all purity
as you would your own sisters.
1 Timothy 5:2 (NLT)

Each of you must know how to control his own body
in holiness and honor.
1 Thessalonians 4:4 (BSB)

This is what the LORD says:
“Cursed is the one who trusts in man,
who draws strength from mere flesh
and whose heart turns away from the LORD."
Jeremiah 17:5 (NIV)

If someone claims, “I know God,”
but doesn’t obey God’s commandments,
that person is a liar
and is not living in the truth.
1 John 2:4 (NLT)

There is no darkness or deep shadow
where the workers of iniquity can hide.
Job 34:22 (BSB)
What sorrow awaits those who
try to hide their plans from the LORD,
who do their evil deeds in the dark!
“The LORD can’t see us,” they say.
“He doesn’t know what’s going on!”
Isaiah 29:15 (NLT)
