"For whoever wants to save their life will lose it,
but whoever loses their life for Me will find it.
What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world,
yet forfeit their own soul?"
"Do not compromise My love, My beloved!
Do not set My love aside to preserve your church,
your livelihood, or your nation!
Do not mix My wine with the means
the world uses to get what it wants!
"Mixing My name with the wine of the world
will dull your discernment and change your values—
instead of valuing one another's hearts
and the hearts of your neighbors and enemies,
you will learn to lust after the things the world seeks:
prosperity, power, and the preservation of your ways.
"Do not drink the mixed wine of Babylon!"
