workers together

1 ¶ We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. 2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) 3 Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed: 4 But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, 5 In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;

The Greek word agreement in verse 16 sugkatathesis[1] from the verb sugkatatithemai [2] means "to deposit together with another... to consent to, vote for". It is composed of two words sun[3] meaning with and katatithemi[4] meaning "to lay up favour for future use". The Greek term sugkatathesis[1] is defined as "a putting together or joint deposit" like the One purse spoken of in Proverbs where we are told to consent not.
To understand the daily ministration of pure Religion it would be good to understand the Christian conflict with the Temples of Rome and their public welfare of free bread and the purpose of the persecutions.
Who are the workers of iniquity?
Are modern Christians unequally yoked with unbelievers, those who believe in force rather than faith and love? Where is the strong delusion?
Do modern Christians love the wages of unrighteousness?
Are they again entangled in the yoke of bondage through the elements of the world?
Are they made merchandise? Do they curse children?
"if any man" be in Christ would not he be doing the will of the Father?
Is it the will of the Father to covet, to bite or to love one another?
We need to repent and [[seek] the will of God. Christ did not give us license to covet. If we truly loved Him we would Keep the Commandments.

6 By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned, 7 By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, 8 By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true; 9 As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed; 10 As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.


unequally yoked

11 ¶ O ye Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you, our heart is enlarged. 12 Ye are not straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own bowels. 13 Now for a recompence in the same, (I speak as unto my children,) be ye also enlarged. 14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
