Texts

(1) ApJas 6:17 [=SecJas 6:28-30]

"You wretches! You unfortunates! You pretenders to the truth! You falsifiers of knowledge! You sinners against the spirit! 29 Do you even now dare to listen, when you should have spoken from the beginning? Do you even now dare to sleep, when you should have been awake from the beginning, so that heaven's domain might receive you? 30 I swear to you, it is easier for a holy one to descend into defilement, and for an enlightened person to descend into darkness, than for you to reign---or even not to!" [Complete Gospels]
