WHO NOT TO INVITE INTO YOUR HOME

2 John 10 (quickview) 

10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:

1. 1 Cor 5:11-13

11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.

12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?

13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

fornication -Sexual intercourse between partners who are not married to each other.

FORNICATION

Sexual relationships outside the bonds of marriage. The technical distinction between fornication and ADULTERY is that adultery involves married persons while fornication involves those who are unmarried. But the New Testament often uses the term in a general sense for any unchastity. Of the seven lists of sins found in the writings of the apostle Paul, the word fornication is found in five of them and is first on the list each time (1 Cor 5:11; Col 3:5). In the Book of Revelation, fornication is symbolic of how idolatry and pagan religion defiles true worship of God (Rev 14:8; 17:4).

covetous - Excessively and culpably desirous of the possessions of another.

idolater - 1. One who worships idols. 2. One who blindly or excessively admires or adores another.

railer- One who expresses objections or criticisms in bitter, harsh, or abusive language.

drunkard -One who is habitually drunk.

extortion - 1. Illegal use of one’s official position or powers to obtain property, funds, or patronage. 2. An excessive or exorbitant charge.

2. 2 Cor 6:14-15

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

unbeliever -One who lacks belief or faith, especially in a particular religion; a nonbeliever.

unrighteous -1. Not righteous; wicked. 2. Not right or fair; unjust.

darkness- Exhibiting or stemming from evil characteristics or forces; sinister:

3. 2 Tim 3:2-6

2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

proud-Feeling or showing justifiable self-respect.

unthankful - Not thankful; ungrateful.

trucebreaker - Qne who breaks cessation or suspension of hostilities by agreement of the opposing sides;
