BLAMELESS not clueless


Philippians 2:13-15

King James Version

13 For it is God which worketh in you both 

to will and to do of his good pleasure.

14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

15 That ye may be blameless and harmless,

 the sons of God, without rebuke, 

in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, 

among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

How must a born again be?

He must be blameless, not clueless.

The HOLY SPIRIT will see to that.

These verses tell us more:

Leviticus 19:1-2

King James Version

19 And the Lord spake unto Moses, 


2 Speak unto all the congregation 

of the children of Israel, 

and say unto them, 

Ye shall be holy: 

for I the Lord your God am holy.

Matthew 5:48

King James Version

48 Be ye therefore perfect, 

even as your Father which is in heaven 

is perfect.

1 Corinthians 1:4-8

King James Version

4 I thank my God always on your behalf, 

for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;

5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, 

in all utterance, and in all knowledge;

6 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:

7 So that ye come behind in no gift; 

waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:

8 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, 

that ye may be blameless 

in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Philippians 2:14-16

King James Version

14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, 

the sons of God, 

without rebuke, 

in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, 

among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

16 Holding forth the word of life; 

that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, 

that I have not run in vain, 

neither laboured in vain.

1 Thessalonians 5:1-23

King James Version

5 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, 

ye have no need that I write unto you.

2 For yourselves know perfectly that 

the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; 

then sudden destruction cometh upon them, 

as travail upon a woman with child; 

and they shall not escape.

4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, 

that that day should overtake you as a thief.

5 Ye are all the children of light, 

and the children of the day: 

we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; 

but let us watch and be sober.

7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; 

and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

8 But let us, who are of the day, 

be sober, 

putting on the breastplate of faith and love; 

and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, 

but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

10 Who died for us, that, 

whether we wake or sleep, 

we should live together with him.

11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, 

and edify one another, even as also ye do.

12 And we beseech you, brethren, 

to know them which labour among you, 

and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;

13 And to esteem them very highly in love 

for their work's sake. 

And be at peace among yourselves.

14 Now we exhort you, brethren, 

warn them that are unruly, 

comfort the feebleminded, 

support the weak, 

be patient toward all men.

15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; 

but ever follow that which is good, 

both among yourselves, and to all men.

16 Rejoice evermore.

17 Pray without ceasing.

18 In every thing give thanks: 

for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

19 Quench not the Spirit.

20 Despise not prophesyings.

21 Prove all things; 

hold fast that which is good.

22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.

23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; 

and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body 

be preserved blameless unto the coming 

of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Timothy 3:1-13

King James Version

3 This is a true saying, 

if a man desire the office of a bishop, 

he desireth a good work.

2 A bishop then must be blameless, 

the husband of one wife, 

vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, 

given to hospitality, apt to teach;

3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; 

but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

4 One that ruleth well his own house, 

having his children in subjection with all gravity;

5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, 

how shall he take care of the church of God?)

6 Not a novice, 

lest being lifted up with pride he fall 

into the condemnation of the devil.

7 Moreover he must have a good report 

of them which are without; 

lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.

8 Likewise must the deacons be grave, 

not doubletongued, 

not given to much wine, 

not greedy of filthy lucre;

9 Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.

10 And let these also first be proved; 

then let them use the office of a deacon, 

being found blameless.

11 Even so must their wives be grave, 

not slanderers, sober, faithful in all things.

12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, 

ruling their children and their own houses well.

13 For they that have used the office of a deacon 

well purchase to themselves a good degree, 

and great boldness in the faith 

which is in Christ Jesus.

1 Timothy 5:1-7

King James Version

5 Rebuke not an elder, 

but intreat him as a father; 

and the younger men as brethren;

2 The elder women as mothers; 

the younger as sisters, 

with all purity.

3 Honour widows that are widows indeed.

4 But if any widow have children or nephews, 

let them learn first to shew piety at home, 

and to requite their parents: 

for that is good and acceptable before God.

5 Now she that is a widow indeed, 

and desolate, 

trusteth in God, 

and continueth in supplications and prayers 

night and day.

6 But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.

7 And these things give in charge, 

that they may be blameless.

Titus 1:6

King James Version

6 If any be blameless, 

the husband of one wife, 

having faithful children 

not accused of riot or unruly.

Titus 1:7-11

King James Version

7 For a bishop must be blameless, 

as the steward of God; 

not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, 

no striker, not given to filthy lucre;

8 But a lover of hospitality, 

a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate;

9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught,

 that he may be able by sound doctrine 

both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

10 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers,

specially they of the circumcision:

11 Whose mouths must be stopped, 

who subvert whole houses, 

teaching things which they ought not,

 for filthy lucre's sake.

2 Peter 3:13-14

King James Version

13 Nevertheless we, 

according to his promise, 

look for new heavens and a new earth, 

wherein dwelleth righteousness.

14 Wherefore, beloved, 

seeing that ye look for such things, 

be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, 

without spot, 

and blameless.
