Will you help a beggar in the street? Will you look the other way when you see a drunk? In your opinion, what is the difference between the two?
Are not both bodies in a posture of weakness?
You praise the soldier whose pride lets him run toward the enemy, mindless of death. And you agree with the average Joe who is proud to say he does not worry about the coming judgment. In your opinion, what is the difference between the two?
Are not both of them bent on self reliance? Do you think death cares?
Do you fear God? Do you think the fear of God is a matter of opinion; as if it’s okay to let another man think he has a choice. As if God has said he is willing to give eternal life to those who refuse to love him. Or do you realize that that man will surely die?
All day long, everyone of us are witness to people who despise the teaching of God. When you see them, do you realize you’re looking at a dead man? Or do you just say to yourself, “It takes all kinds to make the world go around”?
Do you shake your head in pity when you consider what people are doing in this world? Are you doing anything to bring the judgment of God to your fellow man? Is shaking our heads in pity putting an end to the violence in our streets?
Do you know what the Bible says about the coming judgment? Do you use the Gospel simply as a motivator for social righteousness? Do you honestly believe that’s all it is?
