“A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.”
– Thomas Jefferson
“How much do you have to hate someone, to believe that everlasting life is possible and not tell them that?”
– Penn Jillette (Atheist).
Wow. Penn Jillete doesn’t mince words and speaks the clear truth. He’s right on.
Anyway – Everlasting life IS possible. It’s possible through (and only through) knowing Jesus Christ. Don’t hold back in turning to Him! You will not regret it for a moment.
Sadly it is also true that to reject this invitation of Jesus and refuse to come to know him leads to a different kind of everlasting existence –far from the face of God and any love, joy, or peace. In other words, hell.
Please – turn to Jesus while there is time. He is for real. He really does love you. There is a chance for you.
NO ONE is beyond the redemptive hand of God — no matter how lost they might think they are.
There is still time to come to Him.
A truly awesome insight.
“To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us.” – Tim Keller
“The issue on which everything stands is not whether or not you like Christianity, but whether or not Jesus rose from the dead.”
Jesus went through horrible suffering, in order to reconcile us back to God. He did it voluntarily – because he loved us so much.
“It’s because Jesus Christ experienced a cosmic thirst on the cross that you and I can have our spiritual thirst satisfied.”
– Tim Keller
Fascinating prediction. It seems like it may have started to come true already. People don’t really care about liberty and truth anymore. They just want to be entertained – to get their bread and circus….and get their drug fix as well.
If as Romans 14:23 states: “Everything that does not come from faith is sin” – and acting on faith means freely following your conscience to do what is right in God’s eyes…
…how can coercing others to do what you want be an act of faith? Is there anyway that can’t be sinful?
And if gov’t is ultimately the organized coercion of people, doesn’t that point to the idea that gov’t is, almost by definition, sinful?
