كَفَاكُم مَا قَضَيْتُم مِنَ الزَّمَنِ المَاضِي في العَمَلِ بِمَشِيئَةِ الوَثَنِيِّين، سَالِكِينَ في العِهْرِ والشَّهَوَاتِ والسُّكْرِ والقُصُوفِ والشُّرْبِ وعِبادَةِ الأَوثَانِ المُحَرَّمَة
رسالة القدّيس بطرس الأولى04/من01حتى11/:”يا إخوَتِي، بِما أَنَّ المَسِيحَ قَدْ تأَلَّمَ في الجَسَد، تَسلَّحُوا أَنتُم أَيضًا بِهذِهِ الفِكْرَةِ عَينِها، وهِيَ أَنَّ مَنْ تأَلَّمَ في الجَسَدِ ٱنقَطَعَ عنِ الخَطِيئَة، لِكَي يَحْيَا مَا بَقِيَ لَهُ مِنَ الزَّمَانِ في الجَسَد، لا لِشَهَوَاتِ النَّاسِ بَل لِمَشِيئَةِ الله. فكَفَاكُم مَا قَضَيْتُم مِنَ الزَّمَنِ المَاضِي في العَمَلِ بِمَشِيئَةِ الوَثَنِيِّين، سَالِكِينَ في العِهْرِ والشَّهَوَاتِ والسُّكْرِ والقُصُوفِ والشُّرْبِ وعِبادَةِ الأَوثَانِ المُحَرَّمَة. وهُمُ الآنَ يَسْتَغرِبُونَ مِنْكُم كَيفَ لا تُجَارُونَهُم في غَمْرِ طَيْشِهِم هذا، ويُجَدِّفُونَ عَلَيْكُم. لكِنَّهُم سَيُؤَدُّونَ حِسَابًا للهِ المُزْمِعِ أَنْ يَدِينَ الأَحْيَاءَ والأَمْوَات. فَلِهذَا أُعْلِنَتِ البُشْرى لِلأَمْواتِ أَيْضًا، حتَّى وإِنْ حُكِمَ عَلَيْهِم بِالْمَوتِ في الجَسَدِ وَفْقَ النَّاس، يَحْيَونَ في الرُّوحِ وَفْقَ الله. لقَدِ ٱقْتَرَبَتْ نِهَايَةُ كُلِّ شَيء، فتَعَقَّلُوا وٱصْحُوا لِلْقِيَامِ بِالصَّلوَات.وقَبْلَ كُلِّ شَيءٍ أَحِبُّوا بَعْضُكُم بَعْضًا مَحبَّةً ثَابِتَة، لأَنَّ الْمَحبَّةَ تَسْتُرُ جَمًّا مِنَ الخَطايَا. أَحْسِنُوا الضِّيَافَةَ بَعْضُكُم لِبَعْضٍ بلا تَذَمُّر. أُخْدُمُوا بَعْضُكُم بَعْضًا، كُلُّ واحِدٍ بِمَا نَالَ مِن مَوْهِبَة، كَمَا يَجْدُرُ بِالوُكَلاءِ الصَّالِحِينَ على نِعَمَةِ اللهِ المُتَنَوِّعَة. وإِذَا تَكَلَّمَ أَحَد، فَلْيَكُنْ كَلامُهُ كَلامَ الله. وإِذَا قَامَ أَحَدٌ بِخِدْمَة، فَلْتَكُنْ خِدْمَتُهُ بِالقُوَّةِ الَّتي يَمْنَحُهَا الله، حَتَّى يُمَجَّدَ اللهُ في كُلِّ شَيءٍ بيَسُوعَ الْمَسِيح، الَّذي لَهُ المَجْدُ والقُدْرَةُ إِلى أَبَدِ الآبِدِين.”

You have already spent enough time in doing what the Gentiles like to do, living in licentiousness, passions, drunkenness, revels, carousing, and lawless idolatry
First Letter of Peter 04/01-11:”Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same intention (for whoever has suffered in the flesh has finished with sin), so as to live for the rest of your earthly life no longer by human desires but by the will of God. You have already spent enough time in doing what the Gentiles like to do, living in licentiousness, passions, drunkenness, revels, carousing, and lawless idolatry. They are surprised that you no longer join them in the same excesses of dissipation, and so they blaspheme. But they will have to give an account to him who stands ready to judge the living and the dead. For this is the reason the gospel was proclaimed even to the dead, so that, though they had been judged in the flesh as everyone is judged, they might live in the spirit as God does. The end of all things is near; therefore be serious and discipline yourselves for the sake of your prayers. Above all, maintain constant love for one another, for love covers a multitude of sins. Be hospitable to one another without complaining. Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received. Whoever speaks must do so as one speaking the very words of God; whoever serves must do so with the strength that God supplies, so that God may be glorified in all things through Jesus Christ. To him belong the glory and the power for ever and ever.:

أقُولُ لَكُم: أَلمُؤْمِنُ يَنَالُ حَيَاةً أَبَدِيَّة
إنجيل القدّيس يوحنّا06/من41حتى47/:”أَخَذَ اليَهُودُ يَتَذَمَّرُونَ عَلى يَسُوع، لأَنَّهُ قَال: «أَنَا هُوَ الْخُبْزُ الَّذي نَزَلَ مِنَ السَّمَاء». وكَانُوا يَقُولُون: «أَلَيْسَ هذَا يَسُوعَ بْنَ يُوسُف، ونَحْنُ نَعْرِفُ أَبَاهُ وأُمَّهُ؟ فَكَيْفَ يَقُولُ الآن: إِنِّي نَزَلْتُ مِنَ السَّمَاء؟». أَجَابَ يَسُوعُ وقَالَ لَهُم: «لا تَتَذَمَّرُوا في ما بَيْنَكُم. لا أَحَدَ يَقْدِرُ أَنْ يَأْتِيَ إِليَّ، مَا لَمْ يَجْتَذِبْهُ الآبُ الَّذي أَرْسَلَنِي، وأَنَا أُقِيمُهُ في اليَومِ الأَخِير. جَاءَ في كُتُبِ الأَنْبِيَاء: ويَكُونُونَ جَمِيعُهُم مُتَعَلِّمِينَ مِنَ الله. كُلُّ مَنْ سَمِعَ مِنَ الآبِ وتَعَلَّم، يَأْتِي إِليَّ. مَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ رَأَى الآبَ إِلاَّ الَّذي هُوَ مِنْ لَدُنِ الله. فَهذَا قَدْ رَأَى الآب.أَلحَقَّ ٱلحَقَّ أَقُولُ لَكُم: أَلمُؤْمِنُ يَنَالُ حَيَاةً أَبَدِيَّة”.

Very truly, I tell you, whoever believes has eternal life
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 06/41-47:”Then the Jews began to complain about him because he said, ‘I am the bread that came down from heaven.’They were saying, ‘Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can he now say, “I have come down from heaven”?’Jesus answered them, ‘Do not complain among yourselves. No one can come to me unless drawn by the Father who sent me; and I will raise that person up on the last day. It is written in the prophets, “And they shall all be taught by God.” Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to me. Not that anyone has seen the Father except the one who is from God; he has seen the Father. Very truly, I tell you, whoever believes has eternal life.”
