Caution Against Apostasy
See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God, that no one be like a bitter rootspringing up and causing trouble, and through him many become defiled.
[Heb 12:15 NET]
What bright exchange, what treasure shall be given,
For the lost birthright of a hope in heaven?
If lost the gem which empires could not buy,
What yet remains? — a dark eternity.
