The Epistle of Paul To The Galatians Chapter 6:7-18
(15 of 15)
7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a
man soweth, that shall he also reap.
A solemn warning is sounded that God cannot be mocked.
No man can snub, or lit., "turn up the nose" at God,

Look at the verse again friends. No one sneers at God
and that is exactly what a person is doing when he or
she does not commit the kind of commitment to the
learning process! They are literally turning up their
noses in the face of God and God saying, “I’m not
going to let you get by with that behavior.” The
person who refuses to support the church and the work
of God through the teacher who teache ...
