You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men."

26 For what is a man profited , if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 26 What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?
27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. 27 For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father's glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done.
