no respect for every verse in the Bible. Too many reject certain verses and hold
on to others. For example: They say “Yes” to John 3:16 but “no” to Luke 14:33.
They say “Yes” to Ephesians 2:8 but “No” to Mark 16:16. They say “Yes” to
Acts 16:31 but “No” to Acts 2:38. Such a person does not tremble at God’s
Word, nor does he respect the Word of God, but rather, like 2 Timothy 4:3-4
teaches, he  turns from the truth and seeks teachers to tell them what they want
to hear.
