Let me begin by saying, the oft-repeated but bears reiteration because it is…well…true, advisory that any Bible reference found herein is merely a scripture that I have found to have been of value to myself. When utilizing God’s word be wary of the manner in which you wield it, for in Ephesians 6:17 Paul compares the scriptures to a sword and much like any weapon can be employed to injure. Last note, any Bible reference when offered as proof, must first be understood in its context and with the consistent teachings of the entirety of the Bible. Frequently the true meaning of said text can be discerned and clarified by its surrounding verses.

Deuteronomy 5:8-10 “you must not make for yourself a carved image, any form like anything that is in the heavens above or that is on the earth underneath or that is in the waters under the earth. 9 You must not bow down to them or be led to serve them, because I Jehovah your God am a God exacting exclusive devotion, bringing punishment for the error of fathers upon sons and upon the third generation and upon the fourth generation, in the case of those who hate me; 10 but exercising loving-kindness toward the thousandth generation in the case of those who love me and keep my commandments.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for Satan himself keeps transforming himself into and angel of light. 15 It is therefore nothing great if his ministers also keep transforming themselves into ministers of righteousness. But their end shall be according to their works.

Ephesians 4:5 one Lord, one Faith, one baptism;
Ephesians 4:17-19 This, therefore, I say and bear witness to in [the] Lord, that you no longer go on walking just as the nations also walk in the unprofitableness of their minds, 18 while they are in darkness mentally, and alienated from the life that belongs to God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the insensibility of their hearts. 19 Having come to be past all moral sense, they gave themselves over to loose conduct to work uncleanness of every sort with greediness.
Ephesians 5:3-5 Let fornication and uncleanness of every sort or greediness not even be mentioned among you, just as it befits holy people; 4 neither shameful conduct nor foolish talking nor obscene jesting, things which are not becoming but rather the giving of thanks. 5 For you know this, recognizing it for yourselves, that no fornicator or unclean persons or greedy person-which means being an idolater-has any inheritance in the kingdom of the Christ and of God.
Ephesians 5:21-23 Be in subjection to one another in fear of Christ. 22 Let wives be in subjection to their husbands as to the Lord, 23 because a husband is head of his wife as the Christ also is head of the congregation he being a savior of [this] body.
