The Rock and the Sand
Every one then who hears these
words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his
house upon the rock; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds
blew and beat upon that house, but it did not fall, because it had been
founded on the rock. And every one who hears these words
of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built
his house upon the sand; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the
winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell; and great was the
fall of it.
Why do you call me 'Lord, Lord,' and not do
what I tell you?
If any one hears my sayings and
does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge
the world but to save the world. He who rejects me and does
not receive my sayings has a judge; the word that I have spoken
will be his judge on the last day. For I have not spoken on my own authority;
the Father who sent me has himself given me commandment what to say and
what to speak.
The Devil's Children
John 8:44, 47
You are of your father the devil, and your
will is to do your father's desires. He who is of God hears
the words of God; the reason why you do not hear them is that you
are not of God."
