"The perfect punishment is an eternal prison-cell called Hell, where the criminal is physically tormented in a lake of fire, without respite. The through terrifies us, but there is hope!"
"To simply not care – to stand and watch someone die without offering them hope – is the most evil of crimes. This is the crime of depraved indifference. People who commit depraved indifference can be charged with murder, or manslaughter. Blood is on their hands."
"Some will swell with pride, saying they are a good person, and they will be OK on judgement day. What they are really saying is that they are enjoying their sin so much that they are willing to go to hell for it."
Telling people that Jesus will improve their life on earth, is playing on people’s pride and greed. When life doesn’t go as planned, they get a cancer diagnosis, or if they are ridiculed for their faith, they will become disillusioned with God.
If you are using the excuse of thinking that certain people shouldn’t be saved, then maybe it’s time to take a long hard look in the mirror, and question why you deserve to go to heaven when you die.
“Now, the hard question – do you believe that or not?”She was silent for a few seconds. “Yes. Yes, I think I believe that”I had no reason not to believe her, but only God knew her heart.
So often we think we have Jesus down pat. So often we would write a different script to save mankind.
But it wouldn’t work. It wouldn’t include the scarlet thread of scripture, that reveals why He came, why we need Him, and where we go.
Another thing to note about governments and guardians: when their time is over, their spirit departs (v4). Just like us, they succumb to the ultimate statistic: 10 out of 10 people die. All their plans for good come to nothing for them. What is the point of placing our faith in someone mortal, like us? Shouldn’t we be looking towards someone immortal, which can be relied upon?
It is true that someone who ignores good counsel may indeed be a fool. There are some great concepts that have come out of the world. But to keep us grounded, they must be filtered through God’s word.
"Everyone who repents (turns away) from their sins , and places their faith in Christ and His one-time perfect sacrifice on their behalf – will receive 'yeshua' from their sins."
