Flattery is Smooth and Risky
Psalm 55:21 (KJB) The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.

Romans 6:23 (KJB) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
There is only one result or ending associated with sin.

Hosea 4:1 (KJB)
Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a

Trust God Not
Psalm 20:7 (KJB)
Some trust in chariots, and
some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.
