Friends don't let friends die without Jesus and go to Hell.
Have you heard about the "Last Lecture" Randy Pausch the guy who got diagnosed with pancreas cancer, given 3-6 mos to live, and gave an inspirational lecture about living your life to the fullest. He died last week.
He was a Unitarian Universalist. UUA Here is a quote from there "About us" section of their website... "Unitarian Universalism Association of Congregants is a liberal religion with Jewish-Christian roots. It has no creed. It affirms the worth of human beings, advocates freedom of belief and the search for advancing truth, and tries to provide a warm, open, supportive community for people who believe that ethical living is the supreme witness of religion."
I looked all over that site, even read their recommendations for calling a minister. I looked at a list of qualifications to be a minister. I didn't see ANYTHING about accepting Jesus as your savior. The closest I found was a general statement of "Love your neighbor." As a matter of fact it stated that their minister should no be bound by any creed or religious belief, but instead free to openly state his opinions.
The sad thing about this whole thing, is how he inspired millions, and yet what would he say to us now? At this very moment. I much suspect that he would beg like the rich man in hell who begged for someone to be allowed to be raised from the dead to warn his loved ones that Hell is real. (Luke 16:19-31)
The bible tells in Philippians, "Do not be deceived, God can not be mocked." You can make fun of God all you want to here on earth, and because He is a very powerful God who knows how to restrain Himself, He may not do a single thing to you, while you are here on earth, but we all live eternally some where...
Where will you spend eternity? Is we friends? Lets be better friends. Let me tell you about my friend. His name is Jesus, and many years ago, He died on a cross just because He wanted to spare you from your sins. You see, we are all sinners, we have all sinned and failed God, but God sent his only son, Jesus, to earth to take our sins on himself, and be the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. All that you have to do is ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins.
Just repeat this prayer, Lord Jesus, I ask you to come into my life, forgive me of my sins and help me to turn my life over to you, and your plan. Amen.
If you read this blog and accepted Jesus into your heart for the first time, please comment me, I would like to get in touch with you and send you one of my books to encourage you to grow in God.
Ps. I didn't take that picture.
