Ephesians 5:11 Doesn't Mean What You Think It Means

Feb 4, 2024    Pastor Paul Edwards

"And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them" has historically been a proof text for those looking for a command in Scripture to not associate with sinners.

In this message, Pastor Paul takes us deep into the context of the Book of Ephesians to make the case that Ephesians 5:11 isn't a command to not associate with sinners, but rather not to enter into union with the unfruitful works of darkness produced by the depravity of our own hearts.

Ephesians 5:11 is a call to sanctification, not separation.
