When speaking of unrighteous to this point we have seen sins that we would “expect”…
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,
nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.
Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
These will not inherit the Kingdom of God…
- thieves: kleptai - one who steals
- covetous: pleonektēs - greedy
Thieves and covetous will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
Many who are professing believers…and perhaps true believers…are involved with things that relate to thievery and covetousness.
Seek the Lord.
He will lead.
He will direct.
He will guide.
He will let you know the truth.
He will guide you out of ignorance.
And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.
