As it is
May it never be! Rather, let God be found true, though every man be found a liar, as it is written,
“That You may be justified in Your words,
And prevail when You are judged.”
just as it is written,
“God gave them a spirit of stupor,
Eyes to see not and ears to hear not,
Down to this very day.”
For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me.”
To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because they have no dawn.
1 Peter 1:16
because it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
“Who can make the clean out of the unclean?
“What is man, that he should be pure,
Or he who is born of a woman, that he should be righteous?
“How then can a man be just with God?
Or how can he be clean who is born of woman?
“The heart is more deceitful than all else
And is desperately sick;
Who can understand it?
For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, slanders.
For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries,
And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone.
1 Corinthians 6:9
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,
Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality,
But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints;
Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry.
1 Timothy 1:9
realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers
2 Timothy 3:2
For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy,
For we also once were foolish ourselves, disobedient, deceived, enslaved to various lusts and pleasures, spending our life in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another.
1 John 1:8
If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us.
But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying.
