اعْلَمُوا هذَا جَيِّدًا: إِنَّ كُلَّ زَانٍ، أَو نَجِس، أَو جَشِعٍ عَابِدِ أَوثَان، لا مِيرَاثَ لَهُ في مَلَكُوتِ المَسِيحِ والله/No fornicator or impure person, or one who is greedy has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God

اعْلَمُوا هذَا جَيِّدًا: إِنَّ كُلَّ زَانٍ، أَو نَجِس، أَو جَشِعٍ عَابِدِ أَوثَان، لا مِيرَاثَ لَهُ في مَلَكُوتِ المَسِيحِ والله
رسالة القدّيس بولس إلى أهل أفسس05/من01حتى07/:”يا إِخْوَتي، كُونُوا مُقْتَدِينَ بِٱللهِ كأَوْلادٍ أَحِبَّاء. وَٱسْلُكُوا في المَحَبَّةِ كَمَا المَسِيحُ أَيْضًا أَحَبَّنَا، فَبَذَلَ نَفسَهُ عَنَّا قُربَانًا وذَبيحَةً لله، طيِبًا ذَكِيَّ الرَائِحَة. أَمَّا الفُجُورُ وكُلُّ نَجَاسَة، أَوِ الجَشَع، فلا يُذْكَرْ حتَّى ٱسْمُهَا بَيْنَكُم، كَمَا يَلِيقُ بِالقِدِّيسِين؛ ولا البَذَاءَةُ ولا الكلامُ السَّفِيه، أَوِ السُّخْرِيَّة، كُلُّ هذِهِ لا تَلِيق، بَلْ بِالأَحْرَى الشُّكْرَان. إِعْلَمُوا هذَا جَيِّدًا: إِنَّ كُلَّ زَانٍ، أَو نَجِس، أَو جَشِعٍ عَابِدِ أَوثَان، لا مِيرَاثَ لَهُ في مَلَكُوتِ المَسِيحِ والله. لا يَخْدَعَنَّكُم أَحَدٌ بِكلامٍ بَاطِل، فبِهذَا يَنْصَبُّ غَضَبُ اللهِ على أَبْنَاءِ العُصْيَان. فلا تَكُونُوا لَهُم شُرَكَاء.”

Be sure of this, that no fornicator or impure person, or one who is greedy (that is, an idolater), has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
Letter to the Ephesians 05/01-07:”Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children, and live in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. But fornication and impurity of any kind, or greed, must not even be mentioned among you, as is proper among saints. Entirely out of place is obscene, silly, and vulgar talk; but instead, let there be thanksgiving. Be sure of this, that no fornicator or impure person, or one who is greedy (that is, an idolater), has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes on those who are disobedient. Therefore do not be associated with them.”

قال آشَعْيَا النَّبِيّ: «يَا رَبُّ، مَنْ آمَنَ بِمَا سَمِعَ مِنَّا؟ ولِمَنْ أُعْلِنَتْ ذِرَاعُ الرَّبّ
إنجيل القدّيس يوحنّا12/من37حتى43/:”صَنَعَ يَسُوعُ أَمَامَ اليَهُودِ تِلْكَ الآيَاتِ كُلَّهَا، فَمَا كَانُوا يُؤْمِنُونَ بِهِ، لِتَتِمَّ الكَلِمَةُ الَّتِي قَالَهَا آشَعْيَا النَّبِيّ: «يَا رَبُّ، مَنْ آمَنَ بِمَا سَمِعَ مِنَّا؟ ولِمَنْ أُعْلِنَتْ ذِرَاعُ الرَّبّ؟». لِهذَا لَمْ يَقْدِرُوا أَنْ يُؤْمِنُوا لأَنَّ آشَعْيَا قَالَ أَيْضًا: «لَقَدْ أَعْمَى عُيُونَهُم، وقَسَّى قُلُوبَهُم، لِئَلاَّ يَرَوا بِعُيُونِهِم، ويَفْهَمُوا بِقُلُوبِهِم، ويَتُوبُوا فَأَشْفِيَهُم». قَالَ آشَعْيَا هذَا، لأَنَّهُ رَأَى مَجْدَ يَسُوعَ وتَحَدَّثَ عَنْهُ. غَيرَ أَنَّ كَثيرينَ مِنَ الرُّؤَسَاءِ أَنْفُسِهِم آمَنُوا بِهِ، ولكِنَّهُم بِسَبَبِ الفَرِّيسِيِّينَ لَمْ يَجْهَرُوا بِإِيْمَانِهِم، لِئَلاَّ يُفْصَلُوا عَنِ المَجْمَع. فَقَدْ فَضَّلُوا مَجْدَ النَّاسِ عَلى مَجْدِ الله”.

Isaiah: ‘Lord, who has believed our message, and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 12/37-43:”Although he had performed so many signs in their presence, they did not believe in him. This was to fulfil the word spoken by the prophet Isaiah: ‘Lord, who has believed our message, and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?’And so they could not believe, because Isaiah also said, ‘He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, so that they might not look with their eyes, and understand with their heart and turn and I would heal them.’ Isaiah said this because he saw his glory and spoke about him. Nevertheless many, even of the authorities, believed in him. But because of the Pharisees they did not confess it, for fear that they would be put out of the synagogue; for they loved human glory more than the glory that comes from God.”
