I purposely make evil mistakes...
choosing what I know is wrong.

I disobey the exact religious laws I teach... the same day.

The gospel's hidden from my failures.
For many reasons, these Bible verses apply to me.

  • You that boast in the law, do you dishonor God by breaking it? Scriptures say, "The name of God is blasphemed because of you." (Romans 2:23-2:24)

  • So practice and obey whatever they tell you, but don't follow their example. They don't practice what they preach/teach. (Matthew 23:3)

Trusting the gospel is how to be saved:
Jesus died (paying sin penalty), got buried, and was risen.

Trusting more for Heaven is self-righteousness.

  • So we're made right with God by faith, not by obeying the law. (Romans 3:28)

  • Salvation's in nobody else: God hasn't given another name under Heaven that we must be saved with. (Acts 4:12)

  • That's why I said you'll die in your sins: unless you believe that I Am, you'll die in your sins. (John 8:24)

When sharing the good news... I can be kind, gentle, and sweet.

I'm two-faced:
My best behavior isn't my normal behavior.
