Sentenced to Hell by this one Scripture!

(John Flavel)


"I will place My Spirit within you,
and cause you to follow My statutes and carefully observe My ordinances." Ezekiel 36:27

The design and end of God in the infusion of the Spirit of grace, is practical holiness and obedience. The indwelling Spirit of God . . .
  elevates their minds,
  sets their affections upon heavenly things,
  purges their hearts from earthly dross, and
  fits them for a life of holiness and obedience.

None are more forward to claim the privileges of religion — than those who reject the duties of it. Multitudes hope to be saved by Christ — who yet refuse to be governed by Him. But such hopes have no Scripture warrant to support them — yes, they have many Scripture testimonies against them!

"Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." 1 Corinthians 6:9, 10

O how many thousand vain hopes are laid in the dust, and how many thousands of souls are sentenced to Hell by this one Scripture!
