    Why? - Depart From Iniquity.

    Why should believers depart from iniquity?

    2 Tim 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

    Go and sin no more…it’s a standing order from the King.

    He doesn’t want anyone claiming to be one of His followers dragging His awesome name in the mud through evil doing and wickedness. After all, His name is the name that is above every name, and anyone proclaiming His name should strive to be worthy of His calling.


    John 8:11
    She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.


    Philippians 2:9
    Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

    Thank you Silent Wings,

    Would that be in accordance with the following?

    2 Tim 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

    Can we who say we are of Christ, and teach what we ought not to do, yet do what we say we should not do, honour God?

    2 Tim 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

    Rom 2:21 Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest Thou not thyself? Thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost Thou steal?

    Rom 2:22 Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost Thou commit adultery? Thou that abhorrest idols, dost Thou commit sacrilege?

    Thank you RollTide21,

    If we who are Christs do not depart from iniquity do we then remain vessels of dishonour?

    2 Tim 2:20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.

    2 Tim 2:21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.

    In the context of 2 Timothy 2, the yes, we will certainly remain vessels of dishonor. If we did not purge ourselves from the vessels of wood and clay, that would mean that we followed false teachings and believed Hymenaus and Philetus, both of whom "have departed from the truth". (verse 17).

    Thank you RoleTide21,

    If we do not depart from iniquity, does the following apply to us as, I understand it to apply to Hymenaus and Philetus?

    2 Jn 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

    Absolutely.

    2 John 1:7-11

    7 I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.
    8 Watch out that you do not lose what we[a] have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully.
    9 Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son.
    10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take them into your house or welcome them.
    11 Anyone who welcomes them shares in their wicked work.


    We cannot depart from iniquity if we follow teaching that does not proclaim Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh.

    I believe it means to stop doing those things that are contrary to the will of God. We should know what is pleasing to God and what is not. We should know what it is that honours God.

    1 Thess 4:3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
    1 Thess 4:4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;

    2 Tim 2:21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.

    Jas 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

    2 Cor 7:1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

    To depart from iniquity we should get rid of our TV, radio, computer with its internet, phone, have no contact with the ouside world. Move into a monastery or convent, eat pulse and drink water.

    From the following, is it not what we should abstain from doing?

    1 Thess 4:3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
    1 Thess 4:4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;

    2 Tim 2:21 If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.

    Does that not include 2 Tim 2:23?

    To depart from iniquity completely requires total isolation. We cannot escape the presence of iniquity in this world. We have Christ as the propitiation of our sins and we may come to Him to confess our sins with assurance that He will forgive us when we sin.
