Is it true the road to hell is paved with good intentions?


#21

[quote=puzzleannie]Just having good intentions is not enough, right intentions must be followed by right action. I should pray, I should read scripture, I should do something to help the poor, I should be kind to my neighbor, I should forgive my brother. All good intentions, but until they are put into action they are worthless. A person who knows what he should do, yet fails to do it, is in more danger of hell than someone who does not know what he should do.

That’s the way my mother explained it.
