“Consideration Of Our Newly Liberated Life In Christ”

Definitions / Study Helps
  • Sexual Immorality – Operating in sexual orientation that is contrary to what God has established. This goes from the heart to the act. From being accepting of wrong acts to participating in them.
  • Impurity – Moral; suggestive of the fact that sensuality and evil doctrine are frequently associated.
  • Passion – Inordinate affection; an affection of the mind.
  • Evil Desire – Indicates the lack in a person or thing of those qualities which should be possessed.
  • Malice – “badness in quality” (the opposite of arete, “excellence”), “the vicious character generally” desire to injure & having no shame in the breaking of laws.
  • Slander – from the word which we get blasphemy. Slander, detraction, speech injurious, to another’s good name – negative speech towards another.
  • Obscene Talk – foul speaking, low, and obscene speech – perverse speech; cursing; talk which is improper.
  • Lying – to lie, to speak deliberate falsehoods, to deceive one by a lie.
  • Appetite – The natural desire of pleasure or good; the desire of gratification, either of the body or of the mind. Appetites are passions directed to general objects, as the appetite for fame, glory or riches; in distinction from passions directed to some particular objects, which retain their proper name, as the passion of love, envy, or gratitude. Passion does not exist without an object; natural appetites exist first, and are then directed to objects.
  • Passion – The feeling of the mind, or the sensible effect of impression; excitement, perturbation or agitation of mind; as desire, fear, hope, joy, grief, love, hatred. The eloquence of the orator is employed to move the passions. Violent agitation or excitement of mind, particularly such as is occasioned by an offense, injury or insult; hence, violent anger. Zeal; ardor; vehement desire. When statesmen are ruled by faction and interest, they can have no passion for the glory of their country.
