Matthew 7:22-23 KHV - "Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and (( in thy name done many wonderful works ))?

In the NT the word "iniquity" means almost exclusively, "lawless" or "lawlessness", which that passage infers. "But Lord didn't WE do those mighty acts that you blessed?" The wicked don't do those mighty acts, Doug __and you should know better.
Jesus said: "I never knew you": never had an intimate relationship with you.
