The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places...

"When the day of the Lord comes, none of the following will be allowed to enter: "The fearful, and unbelieving..."

I did not finish yesterday.
I did not tall no write about ...and the unbelieving...
I got the initial scripture from revelations:

When the day of the Lord comes, none of the following will be allowed to enter: "The fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars" (Revelation 21:8)

What does it mean to be unbelieving?

The legalistic nature of the human mind wants to dwell on whoremonger and sorcerers and idolater, not much on liars 'sef' but God cares about all of them. And without the Holy Ghost we won't be able to live the life: Zoe anyways.

What does it means to believe?
Galatians says: 

I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live BY FAITH in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me. Galatians 2:20 AMP
(making some capital for the sake of emphasis)

Romans 12:3 says

For by the grace (unmerited favor of God) given to me I warn everyone among you not to estimate and think of himself more highly than he ought [not to have an exaggerated opinion of his own importance], but to rate his ability with sober judgment, each according to the DEGREE OF FAITH apportioned by God to him. AMP

So it is established that we now live by faith from the book of Galatians and that everyone has a degree of faith given to us by God. That cancels out the excuses by some that their faith is nit strong enough since it is the faith of Jesus since we are inhabited by the MESSIAH, and also the ones who say they don't have any faith; the verse in Romans 12:3 checkmates you.
What is ignoble is when you have all of this and then you are armed with conversations of the heathen. 

Let your speech at all times be gracious (pleasant and winsome), seasoned [as it were] with salt, [so that you may never be at a loss] to know how you ought to answer anyone [who puts a question to you]. Colossians 4:6 AMP

The above verse gives an idea about how we should talk as Christians but if our talk is vain or coarse then we cannot complain about the things that we get out of life because there is a king in you and by your words you build your aeon (world) with God or evil.

Let there be no filthiness (obscenity, indecency) nor foolish and sinful (silly and corrupt) talk, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting or becoming; but instead voice your thankfulness [to God]. Ephesians 5:4 AMP

If you talk filthy, indecently, silly, corrupt or sinful or make dirty jokes that are not fitting or becoming, Dwell you have made your camp with the heathen and even though you are different you will get what the heathen get. Do you ever voice your thankfulness or instead you wonder what to be thankful for, you have located yourself with the heathen. 
Voicing your thanks is not difficult. It is your nature to be thankful and gracious and pleasant and winsome and for your words to be seasoned with salt.
Since you have but one nature, which is the nature of God, those issues are not your issues except you have forgotten who you are.

Foolish words, empty words: If you have the life of God in you, that is not who you are.

So by now you gather that your conversation influences your faith, your conversation is something only you can do something about. 

A friend once said, the children of the King should speak the language of the court, there are some things you don't see kings do; they carry themselves with grace and honor because they understand whose backing they have and they speak as such.
Recognize that you have the backing of the most High God because He loved you enough to send his son to die for you. Never forget who you are, don't go to the gutter to drink when you can be drinking from the springs. 

Do change your speech and your world.
Faith follows your speaking
Not just in church but everywhere you are.
