The Ends Do Not Justify the Means

2Co 4:2  But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God's word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone's conscience in the sight of God.

Renounced = reject, disown. This verse clearly teaches against "the ends justify the means".  Trying to lure people in to hear preaching, telling half truths, softening the blow of the bad news--these are things that are to be renounced as sinfully disgraceful and unfit for the churches and the saints in proclaiming the Truth.
