The Scariest Words in All Existence


Staff member
During the sermon on the mount Jesus tells us that on the day of judgment there will be many people who unexpectedly will learn that they are not in good standing with Him. The people Jesus is speaking to credit themselves with doing many things for the Lord and believe they have proved themselves worthy of Salvation. Jesus however does not address the things these people are pointing and instead tells them He never knew them. Why is it that the people being referenced as not knowing Jesus in Matthew 7:21-23 do not understand that Jesus tells them to depart?
