Mark 7:6

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 6 And he answered and said to them, "Well has Isaiah prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, 'This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.1 [From the word of the Lord within: "The hypocrite may talk of faith and do evil. If you are still sinning, you belong to sin and not to Me. Remember, every person who sins denies Him as Lord and Master. Only a heart that is purged of sin is acceptable to God. Everyone is expecting Jesus to be their excuse. I've warned them and given them the requirements and preached the exclusions; they should not expect anything else or conclusion." Every man is judged by their words and works, including those who claim to be Christians; God shows partiality to no man. Until your heart has been washed, cleansed, and purified, your heart is full of sin, and you are defiled; and should you die still sinning, you will be banned from heaven.]

James 1:22

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. [James is saying that if you fail to obey what you hear spoken by Christ to you from within your heart, you are deceiving yourself that obedience is not essential. Obedience leads to righteousness, and obedience leads to salvation; without obedience you will experience neither.]
