“Do not try to work together as equals with unbelievers for it cannot be done.  How can right and wrong be partners?  How can light and darkness live together?  How can Christ and the Devil agree?  What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?  How can God’s temple come to terms with pagan idols? For we are the temple of the living God!  As God himself has said,

     ‘I will make my home with my people and live among them.  

      I will be their God and they shall be my people.’

And so the Lord says,

    ‘You must leave them and separate yourselves from them.

     Have nothing to do with what is unclean, and I will accept you.

     I will be your father, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.’

All these promises are made to us, my dear friends.  So then, let us purity ourselves from everything that makes body or soul unclean, and let us be completely holy by living in awe of God.”

2 Corinthians 6
