    Proverbs 13:3 "Those who guard their lips preserve their lives, but those who speak rashly will come to ruin." MY MY MY!

    No one needs to be a Bible scholar! Ever learning,and never able to come to the knowledge of truth.2Timothy 3:7. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 2Peter2:2. The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.Proverbs 16:4--you don't need to know one word of the Bible,just that you are a sinner

    There is one thing certain. God, the Father to whom Jesus prayed, judges the high and mighty, the low and woebegon alike, and no one can enter paradise based on self proclaimation. God has given to all the way in the Bible. Ignorance is no excuse. Therefore read and reread your Bible until coming to an understanding. Don't settle for the easy, born again proclaimation of being saved. Watch

    Felicia: Many believe they are saved! Help with activities at church,do good in the community, feeding the hungry,the list goes on. Lord,Lord---and in thy name done many wonderful works? depart from me, ye that work iniquity.Matthew7:22-23.
    Have you felt the tug in your heart? John6:44--1John 1:9 they that are saved are changed within ,all things become New. ll Corinthians5:17. You will know!!!

    verse 27
    The thought of this verse alone is dreadful indeed. After spending your life time in the church, you get to the real presence of the Lord (if ever you get there at all) only to be rejected. How depressing! At any rate, one always knows whether they are accepted in the beloved or not. People of God, let us not play games with God for He is a just God.

    Repentance is to wholeheartedly turn from our own sinful ways, the ways of the world, as the LORD brings our sin to light and we are no longer ignorant of our sin. The ways of the world are broadly sinful as the devil is the god of this world wide system, or web: JESUS commands obedience as God has stopped winking at our disobedience. One must repent to be in CHRIST JESUS and be saved from the wrath to come upon the whole world. Be blessed in Christ Jesus according to His will. Amen. Acts 17:30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Hebrews 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
