37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
44 No man can come to me, except the Father that sent me draw him; and I will raise him up in the last day.
22 But flee youthful lusts, and follow after righteousness, faith, love, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 23 But foolish and ignorant questionings refuse, knowing that they gender strifes. 24 And the Lord's servant must not strive, but be gentle towards all, apt to teach, forbearing, 25 in meekness correcting them that oppose themselves, if peradventure God may give them repentance unto the knowledge of the truth, 26 and they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, having been taken captive by him unto his will.
8 Take heed lest there shall be any one that maketh spoil of you through his philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ:
7 But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee; 8 Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee; and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee; 9 Who knoweth not among all these, that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? 10 In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind. - 11 Doth not the ear try words, even as the palate tasteth its food? 12 Is wisdom with aged men, and understanding in length of days? - 13 With Him is wisdom and might; He hath counsel and understanding. 14 Behold, He breaketh down, and it cannot be built again; He shutteth up a man, and there can be no opening. 15 Behold, He withholdeth the waters, and they dry up; also He sendeth them out, and they overturn the earth. 16 With Him is strength and sound wisdom; the deceived and the deceiver are His. 17 He leadeth counsellors away stripped, and judges maketh He fools. 18 He looseth the bond of kings, and bindeth their loins with a girdle. 19 He leadeth priests away stripped, and overthroweth the mighty. 20 He removeth the speech of men of trust, and taketh away the sense of the elders. 21 He poureth contempt upon princes, and looseth the belt of the strong. 22 He uncovereth deep things out of darkness, and bringeth out to light the shadow of death. 23 He increaseth the nations, and destroyeth them; He enlargeth the nations, and leadeth them away. 24 He taketh away the heart of the chiefs of the people of the land, and causeth them to wander in a wilderness where there is no way. 25 They grope in the dark without light, and He maketh them to stagger like a drunken man.
14 Now the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness unto him, and he cannot know them, because they are spiritually judged.
1 But the Spirit saith expressly, that in later times some shall fall away from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 through the hypocrisy of men that speak lies, branded in their own conscience as with a hot iron, 3 forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by them that believe and know the truth. 4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5 for it is sanctified through the word of God and prayer.
19 because that which is known of God is manifest in them, for God manifested it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity, that they may be without excuse:
24 Ye see then that by works a man is justified, and not only by faith.
1 For the Leader. A Psalm of David. The fool hath said in his heart: 'There is no God'; they have dealt corruptly, they have done abominably; there is none that doeth good.
