Luke 13:28

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 28 And there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, but you yourselves thrust out. [The Patriarchs, (Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob), exposed themselves to listen to God's teachings and commands; with their obedience, they became holy men. Their descendants, the Jews, (with few exceptions), thought they were chosen people, failing to apply the teachings of Moses and the Prophets to themselves because they had not been listening to the Word of the Lord, the Word of the Lord within. Yet their own Old Testament scriptures had scores of severe warnings and consequences to those who failed to listen to God's voice; so their understanding of the scriptures was superficial and flawed, lacking the Spirit's personal teachings to themselves. So they continued to sin, and when people die still sinning, they are cast into outer darkness, banned from heaven.

Like the Jews who could not really hear Moses and the prophets, therefore failing to repent in their ways, the Christians of today presume that they are excused from all of Jesus's warnings and from all the Bible's stated exclusions, requirements, and qualifying conditions of salvation; — always thinking the warnings and commands apply to bad people, not righteous believing people like themselves; so they do not obey the commands of repentance they hear or read, remaining slaves to sin; and when they die, they also are banned from heaven, cast into outer darkness where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth.]
