Purity

Don’t develop partnerships with those who are not followers of Jesus’ teachings. For what real connection can exist between righteousness and rebellion? How can light participate in darkness? What harmony can exist between the Anointed and Satan? Do the faithful and the faithless have anything in common? Can the temple of God find common ground with idols? Don’t you see that we house the temple of the living God within us? Remember when He said,

“I will make My home with them and walk among them.
    I will be their God,
    and they will be My people.
So then turn away from them,
    turn away and leave without looking back,” says the Lord.
“Stay away from anything unclean, anything impure,
    and I will welcome you.
And I will be for you as a father,
    and you will be for Me as sons and daughters,”
Says the Lord Almighty! (vv. 14-18)

Paul’s Ministry to the Corinthians

We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain. For He says:

“In an acceptable time I have heard you,
And in the day of salvation I have helped you.”

Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.

We give no offense in anything, that our ministry may not be blamed. But in all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God: in much patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distresses, in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in fastings; by purity, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love, by the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, by honor and dishonor, by evil report and good report; as deceivers, and yet true; as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold we live; as chastened, and yet not killed; as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things (2 Corinthians 6:1-10).

Eliphaz’s Purity Accusation

Eliphaz says:

“Then He will save the humble person.
He will even deliver one who is not innocent;
Yes, he will be delivered by the purity of your hands” (Job 22:29b-30).

In other words, God will even show mercy to those who aren’t innocent.

So Job, your suffering appears to indicate that you’re really terrible!

The concept of purity was used as a weapon thousands of years ago.
