Romans 6:21 - Fruit-loop Bookmark

Therefore what benefit were you then deriving from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things is death. (NASB)
What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. (KJV)
And what was the result? You are now ashamed of the things you used to do, things that end in eternal doom. (NLT)
So what benefit did you then reap from those things that you are now ashamed of? For the end of those things is death. (NET)
Translation. Therefore, what fruit were you having then, upon the basis of which things now you are ashamed? (Wuest's word studies from the Greek New Testament : For the English reader).
Ezekiel 16:61 (NLT)  Then you will remember with shame all the evil you have done.

What profit is there in the earthly sin that gives only the illusion of pleasure and brings with it only imaginary satisfaction?  If by my sinful practices, I would have gained the riches of the whole world and yet lose my soul to an eternity of torment, would I not be the eternal looser?  Would this not be a profit that evaporates in the heat of the final righteous judgment when Christ shall judge the living and the dead?
