    " But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity." If there is not a true repentance, and verifiable thorough-going conversion; if there is not an absolute and complete ceasing of sinning and turning one's back on the world, the flesh and the devil; all the church and Scripture quoting in the world will not get you into the kingdom of heaven!
