 15 "Because you have said, 'We have made a covenant with death, and we are in agreement with hell; when the overflowing scourge passes through, it will not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge, and have hidden ourselves under falsehood.'1 [It is a lie that anyone except the pure can go to heaven; only those freed from sin, only those cleansed by God, only those purified by God, only those perfected by God, only those sanctified by God, only those redeemed from all sin, only those in union with God, only those go to heaven.]

1 We have made a covenant with death, and we are in agreement with hell; when the overflowing scourge passes through, it will not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge, and have hidden ourselves under falsehood. What a perfect description of Christendom today; despite their continuing to sin until they die, they expect to escape Hell and enter heaven, where nothing but the spotless and pure are allowed.
