|NASB||Acts 3:19 "Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord;|
|Acts 3:19 "So repent [change your inner self--your old way of thinking, regret past sins] and return [to God--seek His purpose for your life], so that your sins may be wiped away [blotted out, completely erased], so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord [restoring you like a cool wind on a hot day];|
Bible Note: EdB,
I can't keep up with the multitude of posts. I'm working from a smart phone and won't be back until tomorrow. Most of what I saw was just gobs of speculation, but you did ask one valid question: why do I assume the 2 cor passage doesn't apply to business. I will bow out with an answer to that. I think that passage is specifically appealing to the church. It should be believers only. Paul states extremely clearly in 1 cor 5 that he has never meant for Christians to abandon interactions with outsiders. So I don't have to make lists for the 2 cor passages. Because it's talking about just one thing. Try reading it in that light.
In Christ, Beja
