Cebu Daily News - - COMMUNITY -

Je­sus said to his dis­ci­ples: “I tell you, un­less your right­eous­ness sur­passes that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not en­ter into the King­dom of heaven.

“You have heard that it was said to your an­ces­tors, You shall not kill; and who­ever kills will be li­able to judg­ment. But I say to you, who­ever is an­gry with his brother will be li­able to judg­ment, and who­ever says to his brother, Raqa, will be an­swer­able to the San­hedrin, and who­ever says, ‘You fool,’ will be li­able to fiery Ge­henna. There­fore, if you bring your gift to the al­tar, and there re­call that your brother has any­thing against you, leave your gift there at the al­tar, go first and be rec­on­ciled with your brother, and then come and of­fer your gift. Settle with your op­po­nent quickly while on the way to court with him. Oth­er­wise your op­po­nent will hand you over to the judge, and the judge will hand you over to the guard, and you will be thrown into prison. Amen, I say to you, you will not be re­leased un­til you have paid the last penny.”
