Discussion for Ezekiel 3:18

  • Sally Suveges for verse 18
    Our ladies Bible study is having an evangelism study on the Way of the Master This verse came to my mind so true if we do not witness it is like denying our Lord and Savior then He will deny us Thank you I tried to find this in my concordance KJV which has about every word but this search really helped me sincerely Sally
  • Brianna for verse 18
    Definitely a scripture that brings out the importance of being an Evangelizer. SO many Christians do not even think of their fellow man, by sharing the wonderful hopes in the Bible. People need to preach about God's name, his kingdom, and what he's going to do to get rid of our suffering! If a Christians fails to do so, the blood of the unrighteous is upon their hands.
