ARE YOU SO SURE THAT THE GATE WILL BE OPENED FOR YOU ???

We are all going to stand in front of God and be judged according to what we have done with our lives while we were on the earth… It seems fairly unlikely that God will ask us what method we used to achieve salvation since He gave us the rules by which He expected us to adhere.  It is not that there are any gray areas where we can install our own notions of what is acceptable or not, yet that is exactly what we do when we alter any single word of the Bible.

It also seems unlikely that God will be pleased that we have assumed His role as the rule maker and disregarded His principles and substituted our own. Yet, that is exactly what we do when we alter any single word of the Bible.

Also, there should be some interesting answers to questions that He may ask when He wants to know what we, as an individual, did to prevent the words from being changed. God may also question us as to what we were thinking when we allowed such things as abortion, homosexuality, same gender marriages and many other incredible activities that are so far out of alignment with biblical doctrine that they are beyond ridiculous. Not only are they ridiculous but they are an insult to Him and what He expected of us considering what He has given us. He may also ask what happened to aspects of life such as integrity, nobility, honesty, morality, compassion and disciple… We can be certain that some of the answers could almost be considered comical if they were not so essential to Christian living.

God recognizes that we are sinners and He has made exceptions for that, but to willingly disregard principles like abortion are probably beyond the amazing grace of even God. We believe that He forgives all sins, but can we really expect Him to be so generous as to accept the fact that we did nothing to prevent others from the heinous activities that we now call normal. He may ask if we even wrote a simple letter to our government leaders expressing our feelings concerning such things and that would at least indicate some Christian action. But, to do nothing and worse yet, to vote yes on these questions probably is not going to please God…

God will not be mocked and that is exactly what we are doing constantly by allowing and sometimes condoning actions that are against biblical doctrine and principles. We are essentially saying, yes, we know what You want, but what we want is more important !!!

So, as we stand there and consider what we could have done and did not do as Christians, or perhaps more accurately, “claiming” Christians and the gate does not open for us and we hear “ NEXT “, do not be surprised…
