Simplest answer to your question:

Call on Jesus to be your Lord and He will respond.

Did John the Baptist complicate the gospel when he said "bear fruits worthy of repentance"?

Did Jesus complicate the gospel when He said, that he would say, "away from me you who practice lawlessness I never knew you"

So what does it mean to practice lawlessness?

I believe the common problem in many churches is that people say they believe IN Jesus, but they don't actually believe ABOUT Jesus.
In Christ Always,

Hi EC,

This was given as Jesus' reply to those who were saying that they had all these great works. Jesus answered that they were actually working lawlessness, not good works, that they never actually knew Jesus. Eternal life is defined in John 17, knowing God, and knowing Jesus.

Therefore, the practice of lawlessness is to do your own thing, regardless of what God wants for you.

Love in Christ,
Mark
ειπεν αυτη ο ιησους εγω ειμι η αναστασις και η ζωη ο πιστευων εις εμε καν αποθανη ζησεται
. . . saying to her Jesus, I AM the resurrection and the life, the one believing into Me even dying shall live . . .
