When someone wants to ignore some portions of scripture or spiritualize the things they do not like or understand, Christ tells us that their soul is in jeopardy. The Bible is not a menu that you can pick and choose from. When you want every blessing from Heaven, you must accept every word of Heaven.
Lk 9:26 For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.
Jn 12:47 If anyone hears my words and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. Jn 12:48 The one who rejects me and does not receive my words has a judge; the word that I have spoken will judge him on the last day.
Jn 14:15 “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.
Jn 14:21 Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.”
Jn 14:24 Whoever does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not mine but the Father’s who sent me.
Lk 21:33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
