Luke 10:27 wrote:He answered: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbour as yourself.

One can't reveal it to another as truth, only God can. We are saved by His gift of grace, not our works. Our works are the just fruits of our faith. God's laws are just, they are written on our hearts. Know the laws and know that all are sinners for breaking His laws.
Romans 3:23 wrote:For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Acts 15:11 wrote:But we believe that through the grace of the LORD Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.

Ephesians 2:8 wrote:For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
2 Timothy 1:9 wrote:Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
Romans 3:27 wrote:Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
Romans 4:5 wrote:But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
Romans 9:32 wrote:Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;
Galatians 2:16 wrote:Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.

1 Thessalonians 1:3 wrote:Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;

The Word, is the Truth, is Jesus Christ, is the Life, the Way, Lamb of God, King of Kings, Lord of Lords. (The Word of our Heavenly Father is like foolishness to the unbeliever, how true)
1 Corinthians 2:14 wrote:But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Romans 1:21-22 wrote:Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

We will be mocked for voicing these beliefs.
2 Peter 3:3 wrote:Most importantly, I want to remind you that in the last days scoffers will come, mocking the truth and following their own desires.
John 8:44 wrote:Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.


We must be born again...
John 3:3-7 wrote:Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

His Word will not return void, my thanks be to God.
