“Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul. Having your conversation [behavior] honest among the Gentiles [unsaved]: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.” 1 Peter 2:11-12
The unsaved love to bad-mouth the church, and if you’re a Bible believer, they especially love to lampoon and ridicule you. You must live a righteous, godly life—nothing in your heart and life of what the Bible calls here “fleshly lust.” Renounce that. Abstain from everything that’s wrong. Then embrace everything that’s right.
