Paul Washer explains why this is the most terrifying truth of scripture.
Mark 10:18 King James Version (KJV)
18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.
Matthew 16:25 King James Version (KJV)
25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
The only way to redemption is surrendering to God.
