This is a choice that no human can escape….. a choice that cannot be deferred indefinitely…. and a choice that cannot be avoided…. failure to make the choice simply condemns you to the ‘default option’ which is not in your favor.
but you say to me, “where is the ‘free will’ in that ?”
well my friend, you actually exercised your free will already…. because you CHOSE not to make the choice.
But free will does not absolve people from CONSEQUENCES….. everyday on planet earth you see the consequences of people using their fee will to make wrong choices and suffering for having chosen unwisely.
The most important life choice that you are confronted with is JESUS….
If you accept His claims, then you MUST act upon them to benefit from them.
If you reject His claims then your doom is certain.
If you ignore Him altogether, then your doom is still certain….. it’s the default….. and you have to actively do something to change your destiny.
Jesus was either God or He was a very wicked deceiver….. that is fact….. and the people who heard Him understood this.
John 10:33 tells us, the Jews responded, “for a good work we stone thee not, but for blasphemy, because thou being a man makest thyself God”.
The fact that Jesus was able to walk away from that PROVED He was God …… but you say, “perhaps he was a very evil being with superpowers” …… that wont fly either, because NOTHING He ever did could be classified as evil….. He went about doing GOOD and HEALING people.
Sure there had been prophets before who had done miracles but NONE of them ever dared to claim to be God….. in this regard, Jesus is UNIQUE.
Finally, I hate to hear people say “just because you are not a Christian does not mean you are condemned…. WHAT about all those people born into other religions who have never heard of Christ….. are you telling me they are all condemned ?”
IRRELEVANT….. if YOU are reading this ….. if YOU have been told the Good News about Christ and NOT repented and responded then you are doomed …… plain and simple…… whether the Hordes who have never Heard will suffer the same fate or not maybe unknown to you…… the point is YOUR fate is certain.
Jesus told Peter in John 21:22…… in response to Peter’s inquiry about somebody else….. “If I will that he tarry until I come, what is that to thee ?….FOLLOW THOU ME”
No, my friend…. pointing at other people wont work….. if you do not respond appropriately to Jesus Christ then your fate is sealed.
Make the best decision of your life ….. and respond to Jesus TODAY.
