2 Timothy 2:19

For those of us who name the name of the Lord, our number one responsibility is to abstain from wickedness.  It is not to build churches, manage ministries, wage evangelistic campaigns, or build great organizations for God.  Rather, it is to abstain from wickedness.  If we cannot do that for God, nothing else we do matters.  In fact, if we cannot do that, we will bring dishonor on God’s name by everything else we do in His name. 

If you cannot abstain from wickedness, cease mentioning His name until you can.
