our education, our stuffing of our heads with secular knowledge,
our business of doing things of no eternal value, our working for
dollars, trading our time to survive and therefore wasting most
of our life outside of God’s will, there will be little for us
to be rewarded for during this 70 years of preparation for all eternity.
One day we will

9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived,

10 But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou

12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself

33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also
deny before my Father which is in heaven.

35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father,
and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in

36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.
37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy
of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is
not worthy of me.
38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after
me, is not worthy of me.
