Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed; for in the image of God He made man. Genesis 9

“You have heard that it was said to those of old,

‘You shall not

murder,

and

whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’

22

But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a

cause

shall

be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘

Raca

!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire

.

Matthew 5

Slide23

When the Son of Man comes in His Glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His Glory…Then the King will say to those on His right hand: “Come, you blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you for the foundation of the earth…for I was in prison and you visited me.”Then the righteous will answer Him: “Lord, when did we see You…in prison and visit You? And the King will answer and say to them: “Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.” Matthew 25:31-46
