Ephesians 5:11-12

KJV 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

YLT 11 and have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of the darkness and rather even convict, 12 for the things in secret done by them it is a shame even to speak of,

These are my thoughts, please share yours.

11 We should not work for darkness this just isn’t fruitful but long term can destroy the fruit we have. We are to remove ourselves from the ways of darkness, the works of this world, we aren’t to do this in away that seem we don’t love but we aren’t to accepting of sinful behavior as well. Man knows that difference between right and wrong but many of this world, openly accept what is wrong because they haven’t accepted Him who is right and they don’t have a relationship with Jesus.

12 There are no secrets to God, everything is open to Him. However sinful behavior is often kept secret due to shame, this shame shows the knowledge of it being wrong. For this shame to go away is dangerous but over time many people hearts become hard against sin because they haven’t yet accepted Jesus.
