NAS James 4:17 Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do, and does not do
it, to him it is sin.

NAS Hebrews 6:4 For in the case of those who have once been enlightened and
have tasted of the heavenly gift and have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5
and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 and
then have fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance, since they
again crucify to themselves the Son of God, and put Him to open shame.  (Note

NAS Hebrews 10:26 For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of
the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, (Note 10:32-36.)

NAS 2 Peter 2:20 For if after they have escaped the defilements of the world by the
knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and
are overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the first. 21 For it

NAS Galatians 3:1 You foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you, before whose eyes
Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified? 2 This is the only thing I want to find
out from you: did you receive the Spirit by the works of the Law, or by hearing with

by the flesh? 4 Did you suffer so many things in vain-- if indeed it was in vain? 5
Does He then, who provides you with the Spirit and works miracles among you, do it
by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith?

NAS Galatians 4:9 But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known
by God, how is it that you turn back again to the weak and worthless elemental
things, to which you desire to be enslaved all over again?  (Note Galatians 5:7.)
