Heaven or Hell?

Have you ever heard this excuse for not accept Christ's gift of salvation? "God is a loving God that would never send me to a place like hell, so I don't need to mess with all this Jesus and church stuff!" I've heard it a million times, and you what? The excuse is thousands of years old.

 Look at Jeremiah 5:12-13 (MSG) - “They’ve spread lies about God. They’ve said, ‘There’s nothing to him. Nothing bad will happen to us, neither famine nor war will come our way. The prophets are all windbags. They speak nothing but nonsense.’”

Here is one answer you can give. You are correct, God does love you and He doesn't want you to go to hell. In fact He loved you and everyone in the world so much that Jesus came and died on the cross, so you could be with Him for eternity. Each person makes a choice to accept this gift or reject it. What will you do?

Be wise today and always - call upon the Lord and you will be saved.
