412 What Comes of Treating Your Faith Lightly

Verse 1

Success in belief in God is achieved through man’s actions.

When they fail, it is only through their actions too.

You’d do anything it takes to achieve something

more difficult and with more suffering than believing in God.


Pre-chorus 1

And you’d treat it seriously with no room for errors.

These are the kinds of efforts you all put into your lives.


Chorus

You’ll do anything for the things you’re devoted to,

but you would not do the same for your belief in God.

Those who lack a heart of sincerity are failures in their belief.

Aren’t there many who fail among you?


Verse 2

You’d deceive God’s flesh when you would not deceive kin.

These are the principles you live by.

What you need’s not truth and life, nor rules of self-conduct,

or God’s painstaking work, instead all you have in flesh.


Pre-chorus 2

You dismiss God’s work and don’t hear His words.

God sees how lightly you treat your faith.


Chorus

You’ll do anything for the things you’re devoted to,

but you would not do the same for your belief in God.

Those who lack a heart of sincerity are failures in their belief.

Aren’t there many who fail among you?


Verse 3

God hopes you really try for your destination’s sake,

though you’d better not be deceitful,

or else God will be disappointed.

And where does that lead? Are you not fooling yourselves?


Bridge

Those who think on their destination yet ruin it

are the ones least able to be saved.

Even if flustered and upset, who would take pity on this person?

God hopes you don’t fall to disaster and your destination is good.


Chorus

You’ll do anything for the things you’re devoted to,

but you would not do the same for your belief in God.

Those who lack a heart of sincerity are failures in their belief.

Aren’t there many who fail among you?
