Are You Familiar with These Words?
And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king. (1 Samuel 15:22-23 KJV)

What Spiritual Claims Can You Make?
Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. (Acts 20:26 KJV)
This is a lofty spiritual goal in the life of children of God. It is to be innocent of thwarting away any opportunity to tell another needy soul about Jesus Christ.

Do You Agree with God About Sin?
For though I made you sorry with a letter, I do not repent, though I did repent: for I perceive that the same epistle hath made you sorry, though it were but for a season.
