    LOVE UNCONDITIONAL--NO SUCH THING

    2 Pet 2:1-3

    1 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.

    2 And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.

    3 By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.

    2 Cor 10:1-6

    1 Now I, Paul, myself am pleading with you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ-- who in presence am lowly among you, but being absent am bold toward you.

    2 But I beg you that when I am present I may not be bold with that confidence by which I intend to be bold against some, who think of us as if we walked according to the flesh.

    3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.

    4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,

    5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,

    6 and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

    2 Pet 3:9-11

    9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

    10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.

    11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness,

    Jude 1:1-5

    1 Jude, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, To those who are called, sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ:

    2 Mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you.

    3 Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.

    4 For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.

    5 But I want to remind you, though you once knew this, that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe.

    Gal 5:24

    24 And those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

    John 6:63-64

    63 "It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.

    64 "But there are some of you who do not believe." For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were who did not believe, and who would betray Him.

    James 1:2-4

    2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials,

    3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.

    4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

    James 1:19-20

    19 So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath;

    20 for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

    James 1:21-26

    21 Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.

    22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

    23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror;

    24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.

    25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.

    26 If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one's religion is useless.

    James 2:10-18

    10 For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.

    11 For He who said, "Do not commit adultery," also said, "Do not murder." Now if you do not commit adultery, but you do murder, you have become a transgressor of the law.

    12 So speak and so do as those who will be judged by the law of liberty.

    13 For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.

    14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?

    15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food,

    16 and one of you says to them, "Depart in peace, be warmed and filled," but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit?

    17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

    18 But someone will say, "You have faith, and I have works." Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.

    James 2:24

    24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.

    James 2:26

    26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

    (NKJ)

    [Jhn 3:3, 7

    3 Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." ...

    7 "Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again.'

    [1Pe 1:23

    23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,



    XXXX There are those who say God has unconditional love for us. Not so, there are conditions for love. Like crucifing our flesh(emotions & feelings). Like works of faith, because faith is dead without works. Like bringing every thought into obedience with Christ(new testament). And all these conditions take a life time.



    These are ways of falling from grace, falling short, being disqualified, getting taken out of the book of life. These are conditions.



    Rev 3:16

    16 "So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.

    (NKJ)



    Gal 5:4

    4 You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.

    (NKJ)



    Heb 12:15

    15 looking diligently lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled;

    (NKJ)



    2 Cor 13:5-6

    5 Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?-- unless indeed you are disqualified.

    6 But I trust that you will know that we are not disqualified.

    (NKJ)

    [Heb 12:5-8

    5 And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons: "My son, do not despise the chastening of the LORD, Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him;

    6 For whom the LORD loves He chastens, And scourges every son whom He receives."

    7 If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten?

    8 But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons.



    Rev 22:18-19

    18 For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book;

    19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

    (NKJ)
