Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what FELLOWSHIP hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what COMMUNION hath light with darkness? And what CONCORD hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what AGREEMENT hath the temple of God with idols? For ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing ; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. 2 Corinthians 6:14-18. Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 2 Corinthians 7:1. FELLOWSHIP: "to share, both partake of the same thing". Both Believers and unbelievers feasting at the Table of God over Holiness? No, that won't work, "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God". 1 Corinthians 1:18. And the Believers won't sit around discussing Lifeless stories with dead people. Like oil and water, they'll never mix, they'll never agree on anything. COMMUNION: "association, community, joint participation, intercourse". Two people fully in agreement with each other, both pulling in the same direction, both heading for the same goal. Not happening between Believers and unbelievers. CONCORD: "another word for Agreement". AGREEMENT: "Harmony of opinion; accord, like-minded": Again, not between Believers and unbelievers. When A Believer "shares the Gospel" with an unbeliever, ONLY THE HOLY SPIRIT CAN GET INTO THEIR ROCK HARD, SIN INFESTED HEART, to find and minister to that "Godly Hunger" within. Share Christ, and walk away, leave it to the Holy Spirit to convince, that they may, Be Blessed.
