We can’t have one foot in heaven and the other in hell
Or do you think that the foul stench of the devil will permeate into paradise?
If one aims for purgatory and misses, where do you think he would go?
In an honest examination of conscience, we need to assess the state of our souls
For Scripture says that God will spit the lukewarm out of His mouth (Revelation 3:16)

I’ve been watching the world around me lose its faith
Taking Christ out of Christmas, and from the rest of the year too
Some people claiming to be filled with (or under the inspiration of) the Holy Spirit
But what’s displayed is something different, bearing little to no fruit
And my heart is grieved at the hedonism, the narcissism, the absolute relativism taking the place of true religion

“Oh, but God doesn’t mind; He loves the sinner”—so should you still live in the mud?
“Once saved, always saved” and a plethora of other fallacies
If you profess with your lips but not with your life, what use is it?
If you presume to be saved, are you setting yourself even above God,
Above the Sacred Scripture, which says that we must work out our salvation with fear and trembling? (Philippians 2:12)

Sadly, so many people are denying that Jesus even founded a universal Church
Ignoring His promise to St. Peter (Matthew 16:18), and therefore, losing the solid ground, the fertile soil on which to build and plant their faith
If Jesus is just a prophet and not God, then go to Islam, to Buddhism, to the New Age
If He cannot transubstantiate bread and wine into His own Flesh and Blood, then join the protesting rebellion
As for me, I want to be obedient, I want to serve Him Who is the Way, the Truth, and the (Bread of) Life

“Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.” (John 6:68)
