    See his envy O man? He is corrupt: so is his fruit. Being death he preaches death. He perishes as will his meat. That wicked, being willfully ignorant of the witnesses, confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh: whom I am witness. For my Holy Father will give thee the light of life. It is written, Whosoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Believe thou this? Repent: then believe.
