So many people think that showing human compassion in all they do and respecting the rights of others, is all that’s needed to live a “good life”. But life is more than just showing social correctness; life is about loving people and telling them how Jesus gave His own life to save theirs. Social correctness without Jesus only encourages the problems and won’t give anyone a good life or make this world a better place to live!
People are blinded today and cannot—more likely WILL NOT— see beyond their own mindset. They think that what they do determines who they are. They refuse to acknowledge God Almighty because He puts restrictions on their personal beliefs of stupidity and so they live their lives on a broad path with other friendly people that is leading them to eternal destruction.
- Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.—Matthew 7:13-14
But it’s not okay. Ignorance is not bliss! Just because you foolishly won’t listen to the warning that there’s a hole camouflaged up ahead on the road that you will fall into if you don’t see, doesn’t mean that it’s not there, and it doesn’t mean that you won’t fall into it. And when you do, it will be too late then to wish you’d listened to the warning.
People need to open their eyes and look at what’s going on around them. The world has never been in such chaos! Teen crime, especially random stabbings, have never been so frequent; the murder of innocent babies is now legal and millions are suffering a horrendous death; children are free to change the appearance of their bodies by switching to the other sex; the gay movement is destroying the sanctity of the home; and people are mentally, emotionally and physically parading themselves in absolute defiance of who God created them to be. And what’s worse, is that the church, in general, is accepting it all and saying that God has changed and now accepts everyone just as they are without repentance.
Woe to those who accept that good has become evil and evil has become good! Isaiah 5:20
God has not changed. What was sin a thousand years ago is still sin today, and the sin He hated then, God still hates. But Jesus came to take those sins away from us and this is why God now commands people everywhere to repent because, without repentance, they won’t get into Heaven. Jesus said in John 3:3 that we must be born again. This means realizing that you’re a sinner, repenting, asking Jesus to take your sins away and to fill you with His Spirit. THEN and ONLY then, will your sins be gone and you’ll belong to God and go to Heaven when you die.
We are to treat all people with the same love, compassion, and mercy that God treats us with, but this is not to become our religion in place of Jesus. These are the characteristics of fruits of the Spirit that we will have because the Spirit of God lives in us. Our reward will not be the satisfaction of thinking that we lived life our way and succeeded at being kind to everyone. Our reward will be eternal life with Jesus in Heaven, and our greatest reward will be to earn crowns now that we can lay at the feet of King Jesus in Heaven.
If Jesus doesn’t live in our heart now while we are alive on planet earth, then our eternity will be in hell with all the other foolish people who chose to be social bigots in a world that gave the devil all the glory. And throughout eternity, they will be tormented by the laughing of this evil one because he was able to blind them from the truth. But people don’t have to be blinded.
Our job is to pray for their salvation, pray that God will open their eyes to the truth, and pray that if we can’t show them, God will send other laborers to tell them about Jesus. We need to help others choose wisely and focus on the truth and not on their own selfish desires because eternity is a long time and it begins here on earth. Compassion without salvation means nothing now and will mean even less when it comes back to bite those who refused the One who loved them enough to die for them.
