BAD NEWS

1 Corinthians 6 NIV (Also Galatians 5:19-21 Ephesians 5:3-7)
9Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men
10or thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

Revelation 21 NIV
8But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur.
This is the second death.”

Revelation 22 NIV
14“Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.
15Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

MORE BAD NEWS
(Who are the wrongdoers? Who are the cowardly, the unbelieving? Who are those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers?)

Titus 3 NIV
3At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another.

Ephesians 2 NIV
1As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins,
2in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient.
3All of us also lived among them at one time (past tense), gratifying the cravings of our flesh a and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath.
------------------------
Problem

1.All of us also lived among them / some do not think they are "among them" and avoid them!

2.Sometimes church folk are still living among them!

GOOD NEWS
1 Corinthians 6 NIV
11And 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.

Titus 3 NIV
4But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared,
5he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit,
6whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior,
7so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.

Ephesians 2
4But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,
5made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.

If you do not understand this teaching / your are a part of the problem!
If you get it, you are washed, sanctified, justified, saved, rebirth and renewal, heirs of eternal life, alive with Christ!
You are not a part of the problem. You are part of the Gospel of Christ! You are a part of God's solution!
