    100 years from now will it matter whether you lived in a mansion or a shack?
    drove an expensive car or rattletrap?ate T-bone steaks or greasy hamburgers?
    slept on a king size bed or a cot? wore Tailor made clothes or rags?enjoyed expensive vacations or worked without rest? had a million dollars in the bank or had nothing at all?were CEO of a company or a prisoner behind bars?were healthy and strong or weak and sickly? one hundred years from now all these things will be meaningless. these things are temporary and 100 years from now will be history. BUT IT WILL MATTER WHETHER YOU ARE SAVED OR LOST!

    one hundred years from now your soul will either be in heaven or in hell! life here on earth is brief. when the heart stops beating physical life comes to an end. "for all flesh is as grass. the grass withereth and the flower thereof fadeth away:"(1 peter 1:24) the bible says "it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement" (Hebrews 9:27)

    After your body dies your soul will live in heaven or hell, depending upon your relationship to Christ. Friend are you saved? have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior?

    In one of evangelist Billy Grahams sermon he said "I stand on the shores of eternity and cry out 'Eternity! Eternity! How long art thou?' Back comes the answer, 'When ten thousand times ten thousand times ten thousand years have passed eternity will have just begun.' In the the great day of the Lord some will be stoical, some will whimper, some will search for sympathy but it will be to late. In that Day God will answer the solemn question, 'What shall be the end of them that obey not the gospel?'

    What will you do with Christ? Accept Him or reject Him? Yes it is true. the decision you make now will be binding in eternity.

    " what shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? (Mark 8:36)

    "boast not thyself of tomorrow for thou knowest not what tomorrow may be. (Proverbs 27:1)

    God loves you Jesus died for you "Behold, now is the accepted tome;behold, now is the day of salvation.

    Ah, the old "believe what I believe or else."

    That fearmongering works beautifully on kids, adults? Not so much.

    Ahh Yes I watched a show yesterday on the use of Fear in Christianity.

    How many Christians would we have if not for the fear of going to hell?

    I have enough natural fear of slipping on a wintery road or my old lady over-cooking the roast, so that message doesn't work for me.

    I think muslims have a better marketing plan, I'm much more likely to fall for a message that tells me i'll get like 70 broads to do whatever I want in heaven than I am the whole hell message christians throw at me.

    Sometimes fear is a healthy thing. If what the Bible says is true, all you who are lost should be afraid. The fact is everything we see around us; history, human nature, the existence of morality, even science supports the Biblical account.

    If....

    And if heaven and hell is all false the many have been fools, but if not then they may still be fools and not go to heaven.
    A side effect of religion.

    The oldest found copies of the Gospels date to no earlier than 500 years after the death of Christ.

    How much of our history from 500 years ago is fully accurate?

    Ahh depends on the sect doesn't it?
    some go to hell for allowing blood transfusions, some for dancing, some for drinking or gambling...
    And some not.

    Again religion is the key here.

    Ever study the lost gospel of Thomas?
    And wonder why it was "lost"?

    Good point, all aspects of science have proven the story of noah's ark to be true, that snakes can talk, that humans can live inside whales and that the earth is flat and 6,000 years old.

    I'VE BEEN SAVED!!!!
