Luke 20:45–47 (ESV)
Beware of the Scribes
45 And in the hearing of all the people he said to his disciples, 46 “Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and love greetings in the marketplaces and the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at feasts, 47 who devour widows’ houses and for a pretense make long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation.”

Jesus has been talking to the Scribes and even questioning them, now in the presence of everyone, Jesus issues a warning.  The warning is “Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and love greetings in the marketplaces and the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at feasts, 47 who devour widows’ houses and for a pretense make long prayers.”  Jesus is blunt and to the point, and he is not afraid to say this in their presence.  The Scribes have put themselves above the other people.  Yet, Christ came as a humble servant.  They have the wrong attitude and they will receive the greater condemnation.  The may think they are religious, but they are not part of the Kingdom of God.

I pray: O Lord, help me to have a humble heart and to be a servant for you.  Help me to walk according to your ways and not expect any gain, but to be a servant out of love.  Help me to love all people... even my enemies.  I pray for all those who lost loved ones on 9/11 and to comfort them.  Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
