Their Ministry Commended
11 We are speaking freely to you, Corinthians [we are keeping nothing back], and our heart is opened wide.
12 There is no limit to our affection for you, but you are limited in your own affection [for us].
13 Now in the same way as a fair exchange [for our love toward you]—I am speaking as [I would] to children—open wide [your hearts] to us also.
14 Do not be unequally bound together with unbelievers [do not make mismatched alliances with them, inconsistent with your faith]. For what partnership can righteousness have with lawlessness? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?
15 What harmony can there be between Christ and Belial (Satan)? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?
16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said:
“I will dwell among them and walk among them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.
17 “So come out from among unbelievers and be separate,” says the Lord,
“And do not touch what is unclean;
And I will graciously receive you and welcome you [with favor],
18 And I will be a Father to you,
And you will be My sons and daughters,”
Says the Lord Almighty.2 Corinthians 6:11:18 (AMP)
