They went out from us, but they were not of us. For if
they had been of us, they would no doubt have remained
with us; but that they may be manifest, that they are not
all of us.
1 John 2:22-23
This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart
is far from me. And in vain do
they worship me, teaching doctrines and precepts of men.
For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound
doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will
heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears. And will
indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be
turned unto fables.
2 Timothy 4:3-4
By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes
of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even
so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and the
evil tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree
cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can an evil tree
bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth
good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the
fire. Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them.
Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter
into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of
my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the
kingdom of heaven. Many will say to me in that day: Lord,
Lord, have not we prophesied in thy name, and cast out
devils in thy name, and done many miracles in thy name?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you:
depart from me, you that work iniquity.
Beware lest any man cheat you by philosophy, and vain
deceit; according to the tradition of men, according to
the elements of the world, and not according to Christ.
And in all seduction of iniquity to them that perish;
because they receive not the love of the truth, that they
might be saved. Therefore God shall send them the
operation of error, to believe lying: That all may be
judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented
2 Thessalonians 2:10-11
Let no man deceive you by any means, for unless there come
apostasy first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of
perdition, Who opposeth, and is lifted up above all that
is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he sitteth
in the temple of God, shewing himself as if he were God.
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
for a Happy Death
