It is an undoubted truth that every doctrine that comes from God leads to God; and that which doth not tend to promote holiness is not of God. –George Whitfield

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
Thus saith the Holy Word of the One True God; the God of Father Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
