Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
Why, I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ can do nothing for you.
I refuse to nullify the mercy of God. For if uprightness could be secured through law, then Christ died for nothing!
while Israel, straining after a law that should bring uprightness, did not come up to it.

2 Peter 3:17
So you, dear friends, now that you are forewarned, must be on your guard against being led away by the errors of unprincipled men and losing your present firmness.
So remember how far you have fallen, and repent and do as you did at first, or else I will come to you and take your lampstand from its place, if you do not repent.
