15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: .....Proverbs 14:12KJV – Prov. 16:25
12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
20 For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. 21 What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
Romans 6:20-21The Message
20–21 As long as you did what you felt like doing, ignoring God, you didn’t have to bother with right thinking or right living, or right anything for that matter. But do you call that a free life? What did you get out of it? Nothing you’re proud of now. Where did it get you? A dead end.
