Matthew 3:10; Matthew 13:6; Matthew 13:21

10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down , and cast into the fire.
6 And when the sun was up , they were scorched ; and because they had no root, they withered away .
21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended .
