Read in Context
1 Thessalonians 4:7
For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness.
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.
2 Corinthians 7:1
Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God.
For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.
But nothing unclean will ever enter it, nor anyone who does what is detestable or false, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.
