In the book “God Has A Wonderful Plan for Your Life” by Ray Comfort, there is a quote from J.C. Ryle which reads “..The watchman who keeps silent when he sees a fire is guilty of gross neglect. The doctor who tells us we are getting well when we are dying is a false friend…”
This blog is about a service of care giving. It is meant to be both loving and honest, so I feel I must write the following:
Hebrews 9:27 “…it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment…” (ESV) A “good”, human judge could never overlook lawlessness. We would call such a judge corrupt. The goodness of God that people are relying on for their salvation to heaven may be the very thing that will condemn them to an everlasting hell.
The first two commandments of the Lord’s Ten Commandments (Exodus 20: 3-4) tell us to have no other gods before the One, True and Living God, and that we should not make for ourselves a false god–that is idolatry. You can become an idolator by inventing a god in your own mind to suit our fallen nature by saying “My god would never send someone to hell”. You would be right–such a god won’t send anyone to hell because he doesn’t exist!
Meditate upon this passage: http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew%207:21-23&version=ESV
The Bible says this life is but a vapor that disappears quickly. His word also teaches that we have nothing more valuable than our soul. Seek the Lord while He may be found. Please, do not delay.
