“But if you do warn the wicked person to turn from their ways and they do not do so, they will die for their sin, though you yourself will be saved.” – Ezekiel 33:9
“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” – Matthew 7:13-14
Telling people the truth may not save them, for they may not listen. But it will save you!
In the past year, it seems that many of our churches (although definitely not all) have, perhaps accidentally, misled those who attend them. Truth, by it’s very nature only has one version. God is not fluid and the Bible has not changed. Nor is it going to. So if we want to know the truth; we need to read the Bible.
Gay marriage is wrong in God’s eyes. It always has been, it always will be. Can repentance bring those who participate in gay marriage, or support it, to Heaven. Absolutely. Jesus Forgives. But true repentance means to seek forgiveness and change behavior. It’s both.
Abortion, whether people agree or not, is also wrong in God’s Eyes. It’s the taking of an innocent life. Can that sin be forgiven? Yes! Jesus loves us greatly! His compassion knows no limits. But we also must repent!
If we truly love others as Jesus commands, then we want them to go to Heaven which means that we must tell them the truth-all of it. Or else they may end up in Hell wondering why they are there!
There seems to be a trend lately for ministers to try to find a way to make God’s Bible fit into today’s society, but what they need to do is help today’s society follow God’s Word.
Should God’s Love & Kindness, along with our own, be what brings people to the truth? Absolutely, but we must also share the entire truth, not just the parts that fit with their life style.
Jesus is coming back. We need to help people get ready for His Return.
