    Pro 24:15 Lay not wait, O wicked man, against the dwelling of the righteous; spoil not his resting place:
    Pro 24:16 For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.


    *This is not for you @theefaith , this is for my own benefit.
    Rom 14:1 Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations.
    Rom 14:2 For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs.
    Rom 14:3 Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.
    Rom 14:4 Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.

    May God Bless you and lead you.
    Have a lovely day!
    Hugs

    Matthew 3:8
    Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:

    I believe the Pharisees and Saducees are being addressed with this quote.
    They were coming to John's baptism. Not because they believed they were sinners and needed to be washed,
    but rather to make a show of themselves before the people.
    They didn't believe they were sinners, so John asked them:
    Mat 3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
    Mat 3:8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:
    Mat 3:9 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.

    John is alluding to their lack of Faith.
    Is Faith a fruit?

    Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
    Gal 5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

    They were considering their physical geneology rather than the condition of their hearts.

    well, you dont think that is for when someone asks you though? Look, im sure you are a decent type who means well ok, but i would ask you to examine your motives here; how might you feel if i came to your congregation and started volunteering a bunch of Prot dogma?

    still a biblical principal or mandate
    Not just repentance but fruits also
    Good works
    Virtues prayer etc.

    Eph 2:10
    Heb 10:24
