The section of scripture Pastor Huebner wanted to share in relation to his below message:
Ezekiel 33: 7-11:

But, if you do warn the wicked man to turn from his ways and he does not do so, he will die for his sin, but you will have saved yourself. Son of man, say to the house of Israel, “This is what you are saying: “Our offenses and sins weigh us down, and we are wasting away because of them.

Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, O house of Israel?’
