Don’t Play Games with Your Eternity

Justin Edwards 90x115 by Justin Edwards

It is an absolute fact that you will spend eternity somewhere. There are only 2 options: heaven or hell. Many professed Christians are banking their eternity on what they think they believe. Some might say they will go to heaven because they are a good person. Others might say it is because they are active in church (merely playing the role). Others might say because they pay their tithes, serve the poor, or do any other number of religious deeds they will see the “pearly white gates”. Some think calling themselves a Christian or saying they believe in Jesus seals the deal (contrary to James 2:19), yet never do they open their Bibles (if they own one), conversations about Jesus are taboo, they only pray to God when they need something, Christmas and Easter services are the only times they make it to church, they have no Christian fellowship, truth might be relative and Jesus isn’t the only way, or the whole of their life is marked by habitual practice of sin, but they are still Christian because they “believe in their heart”.

The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it

Lady Gaga “Mocking” the Holy Ghost

Joseph Chambers 2 90x115 by Joseph Chambers 

One of Lady Gaga’s songs on YouTube has drawn 223,934,322 hits (as of Thursday, 06-10-10). That’s getting close to one hit for every American citizen. How has such a “success” occurred? Only Satan can give that widespread recognition of the world to one person. Remember, he promised it to Jesus Christ, but the Son of God said, “No!”

It occurred in this fashion, “And the devil, taking him up into a high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, all this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve” (Luke 4:5-8). Jesus did not deny that Satan had this awesome power related to this world system. It has been proven often that “he is the god of this world” (II Corinthians 4:4).
