The rest of the story (09/19/2004)
From: David Foss

Galesville, Wis.

God must be grieved and angry at man's stubbornness and foolishness. Man is stubborn because he can be told, repeatedly, of obvious error, yet stubbornly refuse to admit it or turn from it. Man is foolish because he will continue to hold onto that which is indisputably contrary to God's word. Romans 16: 17-18 and Matthew 7:15.

The Bible says in John 1:29B "...Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world." Yes, Jesus Christ did die for the sins of the world, but he did not say because God gave His Son to die for our sins, that everyone would serve Him in His eternal kingdom in heaven.

God has some prerequisites for eternal life in heaven. Here is one of those prerequisites: 1) John 3:16, 2) Acts 16:31, 3) I John 5:13, 4) John 5:24, 5) John 6:47, and 6) John 11:25-26. God's word clearly states that we must believe! Here are more very significant verses to read: 1) Romans 3:23, 2) Romans 6:23A, 3) Romans 5:8, 4) John 6:40, 5) Luke 13:3, and 6) I John 5:11-12.

Regardless of what the deceivers of God's word say, God will not allow evil men and women into heaven. Only those who have done as God has directed will be allowed to go through the pearly gates into heaven. We can state, matter-of-factly, no matter what the wolves in sheep's clothing proclaim, unsaved individuals will not be walking the streets of gold. Please understand, God doesn't send anyone to hell - we do. Isaiah 45:22 We make the choice. I Timothy 2:4 Again, we make the decision to get saved. God doesn't force anyone to get saved.

God doesn't want anyone to spend eternity in hell, so He has placed many verses of warning for those that are lost: 1) John 3:36, 2) II Thessalonians 1:8-9, 3) John 3:18, 4) Isaiah 33:14, 5) Daniel 12:2, and 6) Matthew 25:46. We know that those who do not believe are lost and are going to a "literal" hell, because God states this warning many times in His word. Only a wolf in sheep's clothing - having read all of God's word - could come to the incorrect conclusion that there is no literal hell. II Timothy 4:3-4.

It is surely an abomination to God when someone - knowingly - states pure falsehood as fact, such as, "Well, Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world, so nobody will be sent to hell regardless of what kind of life we lead." God says this is a lie. Now are we to believe our truthful God or lying man?

Please take the time to look up all the verses mentioned in this letter. It is of crucial importance because where we spend eternity is at stake. Don't just read John 1:29B. Read the rest of the story!
