Reflections on the Ethics of Ephesians 5

Reflections on the Ethics of Ephesians 5 September 18, 2016

As I read and wrote about Ephesians 5.3-20 for a NT Intro, these were the thoughts that formed in my head:

Paul’s ethical vision here is not that of some geriatric prude fearful that somewhere somehow young people are enjoying tawdry pleasures, rather, he is calling a redeemed people to see their bodies, minds, and desires as the battle ground in a life-or-death confrontation between the powers of evil and the kingdom of God.
