    So many making empty, professions, taking to themselves the name of God in vain. In emptiness.

    Nope. . .
    Not saved. Never were is what the Bible teaches, posers, self deceived, one of the 3 unfruitful soils. Matthew 13.
    And this is the end of the self deceived ones,
    Went out from us because they were never of us.
    The self deceived Jesus said, in Matthew 7, though religious and religiously active, were not lost by Him, or somehow became unsaved. But He said, "I never knew you" They had never truly entrusted themselves to Him. had never really believed to begin with, never knew Him personally, been born from above. As is true of much the professing Christ today. The very reason Paul calls the professors to examine themselves to see if the are really in the faith, or Christ not be in them and they are not really saved at all. Merely reprobate.

    "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?' And then will I declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.'
    (Matthew 7:21-23)

    "Hear then the parable of the sower: When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is what was sown along the path. As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is the one who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy, yet he has no root in himself, but endures for a while, and when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately he falls away. As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and it proves unfruitful. As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it. He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty."
    (Matthew 13:18-23)

    They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us.
    (1 John 2:19)

    Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?–unless indeed you fail to meet the test!
    (2 Corinthians 13:5)
