Don’t Go to Hell

You get the just reward for how you live your life.  If you sin and do nothing to change, you choose hell.  You chose it yourself.  “Going to hell” is not a mean thing God does to people.  It is the destination you choose during your lifetime if you do not turn from sin before you die.  God doesn’t want anyone to go to hell, but He gave us all free will.

Likewise, if you want to go to heaven, you have to live a life that will lead you there.  Fortunately, even if you’re the filthiest, most revolting sinner on the face of the planet, you can still change the path you’re on.  Until the day you die, you can change.  Problem is, you don’t know when you’re going to die, so that means every day is judgment day.  Once you do die, that’s it.  No more chance to repent (change your ways).

Live your life as if you are going to stand before God tomorrow to give an account for your life.  He knows everything.  Excuses won’t work.  You’ll be able to say nothing but “have mercy, O Lord.”

When you die, you will stand before the throne of Almighty God and hear one of two things:

“Come ye blessed into the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.”

or

“Depart from me accursed into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels.”

It’s you’re choice.

And don’t think “being a good guy” is going to get you past the pearly gates.  Jesus said you have to keep His commandments:  Love God with all your heart, mind, and strength and love your neighbor as Jesus has loved you–since God *is* love, that’s a tall order for you.  You keep these two, you will automatically keep the 10 Commandments.  He said to “be perfect as your Heavenly Father is perfect.”  So you see, sex outside of marriage, homosexual activity, abortion, and other things of which people today approve (basically immorality regarding the issues of life and sex) saying, “it’s none of your business” are not to be affirmed.

Affirming your friend in his sin is not merciful; it is merciless!  If you don’t care if your family and friends go to hell, then let them sin all they want.  However, if you’d like your family and friends to go to heaven, you have to speak up.  It is your Christian duty to do so.  If you could have led someone out of sin and guided him onto the path towards heaven and you didn’t even try, you’ll have to answer for that on judgment day.
