- Do you not know that
the wicked will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers
nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit
the Kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified
in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-11; emphasis added)

There was a time when some of you were just like that, but now your sins have been washed away, and you have been set apart
for God. You have been made right with God because of what the Lord Jesus Christ and the Spirit of our God have done for you.
