Matthew 7:22-23

22 a  On that day b  many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not c  prophesy in your name, and cast out demons d  in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 e  And then will I declare to them, ‘I f  never knew you; g  depart from me h  you workers of lawlessness.’

Matthew 7:26

26And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like i  a foolish man who built his house on the sand.

2 Timothy 3:5

5having the appearance of godliness, but j  denying its power. k  Avoid such people.

Titus 1:16

16 l  They profess to know God, but they m  deny him by their works. They are detestable, disobedient n  unfit for any good work.

2 Peter 2:18-22

18For o  speaking loud boasts of folly, they entice by sensual passions of the flesh those who are barely p  escaping from those who live in error. 19They promise them q  freedom, r  but they themselves are slaves
Greek bondservants
of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person, to that he is enslaved.
20For if t  after they have escaped the defilements of the world u  through the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome v  the last state has become worse for them than the first. 21For w  it would have been better for them never to have known the way of righteousness than after knowing it to turn back from x  the holy commandment delivered to them. 22What the true proverb says has happened to them: “The y  dog returns to its own vomit, and the sow, after washing herself, returns to wallow in the mire.”
