What right do you have to say your parents are wrong and your peers are right?

Judge neither parents nor peers by Society.

Judge both by the universal standard of time and eternity – The Bible.

What is your understanding about the eternal abode of saints?  Is your view Biblical?  Some time ago a boy supposedly died, went to heaven, and returned to tell about it. His story has been printed.  A former student recommended his story to me.  I had already read a report on the boy’s account which indicated there were occult parallels. This boy’s telling (or anyone’s telling) about heaven must line up with the Bible. If popular stories (or unpopular ones), if new accounts (or older ones) do not line up perfectly with what God’s Word clearly teaches please, please reject them. (If satan can deceive us about heaven: who goes there, what it is like, where it is, when we go there, & why ones goes, what more does he want?)

 

And the eternal abode of sinners?  If satan can convince you there is not hell or the eventual “lake of fire”(Rev 19.20, 20.10, 20.14, 20.15) and keep you convinced, you will end up there.  If satan can allure you to believe in the fictional “purgatory” and you warp your mind to the idea you can suffer a thousand years and then be allowed to leave, you will end in hell.

 

The descriptions for both destinations for Eternity (heaven & hell) must, Must be based on the Bible or they are totally untrustworthy. Totally!

Read It because we need It.

3/20 Harriet Beecher Stowe on this date 1852 (she was then 41) published Uncle Tom’s Cabin.  This antislavery novel became a classic and joined the thin ranks of very influencial books – probably in the top ten most effective books ever published (the Bible is the most influencial Book in the world).  Uncle Tom’s Cabin had been published as a series in an antislavery newspaper the year before. It is thought to have helped lead America into the uncivil war (1861-1865).

The Bible

Within this awful volume lies
The mystery of mysteries:
Happiest they of human race,
To whom their God has given grace
To read, to fear, to hope, to pray,
To lift the latch, to force the way;
But better had they ne’er been born,
Who read to doubt, or read to scorn.
