All of us who are spiritually mature should have this same attitude. But if some of you have a different attitude, God will make this clear to you.

Keep on imitating me, my friends. Pay attention to those who follow the right example that we have set for you. 1

They are going to end up in hell, because their god is their bodily desires. They are proud of what they should be ashamed of, and they think only of things that belong to this world.

He will change our weak mortal bodies and make them like his own glorious body, using that power by which he is able to bring all things under his rule.
