Timid about the Truth of the Gospel

Three times in the last two weeks I have been confronted face to face with a person who believes they are a Christian. Good person. Go to church three four times a year. Throw a few bucks in the plate.

And that everyone is going to heaven. All paths lead to God. Jesus sacrifice is pretty neutral to them.

The one that got me was from a dying man who said, I believe in our creator and then we have to create him in our image. That's the God I believe in.

I think we have forgotten how to preach about the eternal loss in Hell for those who don't Trust Jesus.

We have become Timid.

I'm feeling a boldness. Probably not a popular boldness. But we have too much timidity to not offend. Maybe it's time to offend the sinners around us and tell them the truth.

Without Jesus you are going to spend eternity in Hell without hope.

Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me;
The carriage held but just ourselves
And Immortality.

We slowly drove, he knew no haste,
And I had put away
My labor, and my leisure too,
For his civility.

We passed the school, where children strove
At recess, in the ring;
We passed the fields of gazing grain,
We passed the setting sun.

Or rather, he passed us;
The dews grew quivering and chill,
For only gossamer my gown,
My tippet only tulle.

We paused before a house that seemed
A swelling of the ground;
The roof was scarcely visible,
The cornice but a mound.

Since then 'tis centuries, and yet each
Feels shorter than the day
I first surmised the horses' heads
Were toward eternity.

A CHRISTLESS ETERNITY IS A FEARFUL THING. Forever in your mind the "what if's" will surely ring. You'll have no one but yourself to blame. And blame yourself you will. For you have squandered every chance of Heaven and chosen a living Hell. NEM 3-255-09
