Be ye therefore imitators of God, as beloved children;  and walk in love, even as Christ also loved you, and gave himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for an odor of a sweet smell.   But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as becometh saints;   nor filthiness, nor foolish talking, or jesting, which are not befitting: but rather giving of thanks.  For this ye know of a surety, that no fornicator, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.  Let no man deceive you with empty words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the sons of disobedience.  Be not ye therefore partakers with them;  For ye were once darkness, but are now light in the Lord: walk as children of light  (for the fruit of the light is in all goodness and righteousness and truth),  proving what is well-pleasing unto the Lord;  and have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather even reprove them;  for the things which are done by them in secret it is a shame even to speak of.

Ephesians 5:1-12
