Discipleship by Bob Siegel
The following version of judgment day is nothing but science fiction.
Unfortunately, this repulsive scene is implied by many of today's
Two souls are standing before God. God turns to the first one and says;
"Mr. Matthew's, you were a miserable, wretched sinner, rotten to the
core. You do not deserve to enter my kingdom. But luckily you believed
in Jesus. Now, all is well. Feel free to come in and congratulations."
Then He turns to Mr. Gallows, "Mr. Gallows, you too were a miserable,
wretched sinner, rotten to the core. You do not deserve to enter my
kingdom either and you know something? You won't. Because you did not
believe in Jesus."
Is mere belief all there is to salvation? Could not Mr. Gallows bring
up a valid defense?
"Let me get this right. My life style was no different than Mr.
Matthews'. We were both sinners and Christ died for us both."
"And the only distinguishing mark is that he happened to believe and I
was brought up in such a way that psychologically, belief in Jesus was
difficult. Look, I believe now. If Christ died for me anyway, why not
let me stay?"
"Sorry. You're already dead. It doesn't count anymore."
We mock our loving God with such hideous descriptions. God is reduced
to nothing but an apathetic game show host. "You lost salvation , but
we have lovely parting gifts for you."
