Titus:1:16They say that they have knowledge of God, while by their acts they are turning their backs on him; they are hated by all, hard-hearted, and judged to be without value for any good work. See All...; John:13:34-35 I give you a new law: Have love one for another; even as I have had love for you, so are you to have love one for another.  By this it will be clear to all men that you are my disciples, if you have love one for another.
See All...; 1 John:3:17-18 But if a man has this world's goods, and sees that his brother is in need, and keeps his heart shut against his brother, how is it possible for the love of God to be in him?  My little children, do not let our love be in word and in tongue, but let it be in act and in good faith.
See All...; James:2:15-26 If a brother or a sister is without clothing and in need of the day's food,  And one of you says to them, Go in peace, be warm and full of food; but you do not give them the things of which their bodies have need, what profit is there in this?  Even so faith without works is dead.  But a man may say, You have faith and I have works; let me see your faith without your works, and I will make my faith clear to you by my works.  You have the belief that God is one, and you do well: the evil spirits have the same belief, shaking with fear.  Do you not see, O foolish man, that faith without works is of no use?  Was not the righteousness of Abraham our father judged by his works, when he made an offering of Isaac his son on the altar?  You see that his faith was helping his works and was made complete by them;  And the holy Writings were put into effect which said, And Abraham had faith in God and it was put to his account as righteousness; and he was named the friend of God.  You see that a man's righteousness is judged by his works and not by his faith only.  And in the same way, was not the righteousness of Rahab, the loose woman, judged by her works, when she took into her house those who were sent and let them go out by another way?  For as the body without the spirit is dead even so faith without works is dead.
See All...; James:3:13Who has wisdom and good sense among you? let him make his works clear by a life of gentle wisdom. See All...; Mark:7:6-7 And he said, Well did Isaiah say of you, you false ones: These people give me honour with their lips, but their heart is far from me.  But their worship is to no purpose, while they give as their teaching the rules of men.
See All...; Hebrews:11:1-40 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the sign that the things not seen are true.  For by it our fathers had God's approval.  By faith it is clear to us that the order of events was fixed by the word of God, so that what is seen has not been made from things which only seem to be.  By faith Abel made a better offering to God than Cain, and he had witness through it of his righteousness, God giving his approval of his offering: and his voice still comes to us through it though he is dead.  By faith Enoch was taken up to heaven so that he did not see death; he was seen no longer, for God took him away: for before he was taken, witness had been given that he was well-pleasing to God:  And without faith it is not possible to be well-pleasing to him, for it is necessary for anyone who comes to God to have the belief that God is, and that he is a rewarder of all those who make a serious search for him.  By faith Noah, being moved by the fear of God, made ready an ark for the salvation of his family, because God had given him news of things which were not seen at the time; and through it the world was judged by him, and he got for his heritage the righteousness which is by faith.  By faith Abraham did as God said when he was ordered to go out into a place which was to be given to him as a heritage, and went out without knowledge of where he was going.  By faith he was a wanderer in the land of the agreement, as in a strange land, living in tents with Isaac and Jacob, who had a part with him in the same heritage:  For he was looking for the strong town, whose builder and maker is God.  And by faith Sarah herself had power to give birth, when she was very old, because she had faith in him who gave his word;  So that from one man, who was near to death, came children in number as the stars in heaven, or as the sand by the seaside, which may not be numbered.  All these came to their end in faith, not having had the heritage; but having seen it with delight far away, they gave witness that they were wanderers and not of the earth.  For those who say such things make it clear that they are searching for a country for themselves.  And truly if they had kept in mind the country from which they went out, they would have had chances of turning back.  But now their desire is for a better country, that is to say, for one in heaven; and so it is no shame to God to be named their God; for he has made ready a town for them.  By faith Abraham made an offering of Isaac, when he was tested: and he with whom the agreement had been made gave up as an offering the only son of his body,  Of whom it had been said, From Isaac will your seed take their name:  Judging that God was able to give life even to the dead; and because of this he did get him back as if from death.  By faith Isaac, blessing Jacob and Esau, gave news of things to come.  By faith Jacob gave a blessing to the two sons of Joseph, when he was near to death; and gave God worship, supported by his stick.  By faith Joseph, when his end was near, said that the children of Israel would go out of Egypt; and gave orders about his bones.  By faith Moses was kept secretly by his father and mother for three months after his birth, because they saw that he was a fair child; and they had no fear of the king's orders.  By faith Moses, when he became a man, had no desire to be named the son of Pharaoh's daughter;  Feeling that it was better to undergo pain with the people of God, than for a short time to have a taste of the pleasures of sin;  Judging a part in the shame of Christ to be better than all the wealth of Egypt; for he was looking forward to his reward.  By faith he went out of Egypt, not being turned from his purpose by fear of the wrath of the king; for he kept on his way, as seeing him who is unseen.  By faith he kept the Passover, and put the sign of the blood on the houses, so that the angel of destruction might not put their oldest sons to death.  By faith they went through the Red Sea as if it had been dry land, though the Egyptians were overcome by the water when they made an attempt to do the same.  By faith the walls of Jericho came down, after they had been circled for seven days.  By faith Rahab, the loose woman, was not put to death with those who had gone against God's orders, because she had taken into her house in peace those sent to see the land.  What more am I to say? For there would not be time to give the stories of Gideon, Barak, Samson, and Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets:  Who through faith overcame kingdoms, did righteousness, got their reward, kept the mouths of lions shut,  Put out the power of fire, got safely away from the edge of the sword, were made strong when they had been feeble, became full of power in war, and put to flight the armies of the nations.  Women had their dead given back to them living; others let themselves be cruelly attacked, having no desire to go free, so that they might have a better life to come;  And others were tested by being laughed at or by blows, and even with chains and prisons:  They were stoned, they were cut up with knives, they were tested, they were put to death with the sword, they went about in sheepskins and in goatskins; being poor and in pain and cruelly attacked,  Wandering in waste places and in mountains and in holes in the rocks; for whom the world was not good enough.  And not one of these got the good things of the agreement, though they all had a good record through faith,  Because God had kept some better thing for us, so that it was not possible for them to become complete without us.
See All...; Matthew:4:19And he said to them, Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men. See All...; Matthew:10:32-39 To everyone, then, who gives witness to me before men, I will give witness before my Father in heaven.  But if anyone says before men that he has no knowledge of me, I will say that I have no knowledge of him before my Father in heaven.  Do not have the thought that I have come to send peace on the earth; I came not to send peace but a sword.  For I have come to put a man against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law:  And a man will be hated by those of his house.  He who has more love for his father or mother than for me is not good enough for me; he who has more love for son or daughter than for me is not good enough for me.  And he who does not take his cross and come after me is not good enough for me.  He who has the desire to keep his life will have it taken from him, and he who gives up his life because of me will have it given back to him.
See All...; 1 Peter:2:21This is God's purpose for you: because Jesus himself underwent punishment for you, giving you an example, so that you might go in his footsteps: See All...; 1 Corinthians:4:16So my desire is that you take me as your example. See All...; 1 Corinthians:11:1So take me for your example, even as I take Christ for mine. See All...; 1 Thessalonians:1:5-10 Because our good news came to you, not in word only, but in power, and in the Holy Spirit, so that you were completely certain of it; even as you saw what our behaviour to you was like from our love to you.  And you took us and the Lord as your example, after the word had come to you in much trouble, with joy in the Holy Spirit;  So that you became an example to all those who have faith in Christ in Macedonia and Achaia.  For not only was the word of the Lord sounding out from you in Macedonia and Achaia, but in every place your faith in God is made clear; so that we have no need to say anything.  For they themselves give the news of how we came among you; and how you were turned from images to God, to the worship of a true and living God,  Waiting for his Son from heaven, who came back from the dead, even Jesus, our Saviour from the wrath to come.
See All...; Hebrews:10:22-26 Let us go in with true hearts, in certain faith, having our hearts made free from the sense of sin and our bodies washed with clean water:  Let us keep the witness of our hope strong and unshaking, for he is true who has given his word:  And let us be moving one another at all times to love and good works;  Not giving up our meetings, as is the way of some, but keeping one another strong in faith; and all the more because you see the day coming near.  For if we do evil on purpose after we have had the knowledge of what is true, there is no more offering for sins,
See All...; Matthew:6:33But let your first care be for his kingdom and his righteousness; and all these other things will be given to you in addition. See All...; Colossians:3:1If then you have a new life with Christ, give your attention to the things of heaven, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. See All...; Matthew:7:15-20 Be on the watch for false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inside they are cruel wolves.  By their fruits you will get knowledge of them. Do men get grapes from thorns or figs from thistles?  Even so, every good tree gives good fruit; but the bad tree gives evil fruit.  It is not possible for a good tree to give bad fruit, and a bad tree will not give good fruit.  Every tree which does not give good fruit is cut down and put in the fire.  So by their fruits you will get knowledge of them.
