And why should we ourselves be continually risking our lives, facing death hour by hour?
For I swear, dear brothers and sisters, I face death daily. This is as certain as my pride in what the Lord Jesus Christ has done in you.
And what value was there in fighting wild beasts -- those men of Ephesus a -- if there will be no resurrection from the dead? If there is no resurrection, "Let's feast and get drunk, for tomorrow we die!" b33
Don't be fooled by those who say such things, for "bad company corrupts good character."
Come to your senses and stop sinning. For to your shame I say that some of you don't even know God.
