Do you think you’re safe from judgement?


Good evening all.  I was reading the Bible last night and just thought I would share my readings with you.

 

The question you should ask yourself is, will you go to heaven because you grew up in a christian home or because you serve God with all your heart and follow His decrees? Read the below verses. Follow the link if you wish to read the whole chapter (recommended)

Ezekiel 18:5 – 13 (NLT) Link to Bible Gateway

“Suppose a certain man is righteous and does what is just and right. He does not feast in the mountains before Israel’s idols[a] or worship them. He does not commit adultery or have intercourse with a woman during her menstrual period. He is a merciful creditor, not keeping the items given as security by poor debtors. He does not rob the poor but instead gives food to the hungry and provides clothes for the needy. He grants loans without interest, stays away from injustice, is honest and fair when judging others, and faithfully obeys my decrees and regulations. Anyone who does these things is just and will surely live, says the Sovereign Lord.

10 “But suppose that man has a son who grows up to be a robber or murderer and refuses to do what is right. 11 And that son does all the evil things his father would never do—he worships idols on the mountains, commits adultery, 12 oppresses the poor and helpless, steals from debtors by refusing to let them redeem their security, worships idols, commits detestable sins, 13 and lends money at excessive interest. Should such a sinful person live? No! He must die and must take full blame.

God wanted me to share this because there are probably a lot of people who think, because they know OF God and that they were brought up in a Godly manner they will go to heaven.  I don’t think it’s that easy though.  You can see from the above scriptures that you won’t be able to do this as God treats everyone according to their OWN actions.  My friend Joshua Hoffman blogged about something similar a few days ago (you can read his blog by clicking here) where he also mentioned that people claim they are Christians but have only read the Bible once or twice and some even never.  So that shows that they grew up in Christian homes,  but does not mean they are saved…  How can you be saved if you do not know what to do as a Christian?  To know what to do and how to live, one needs to study the Bible, go to Church and mingle with fellow Born again Christians.  Christianity can be explained like this: You start as a baby, and you need to drink milk in the beginning in order to strengthen your immune system, bones etc.  Without the proper amount of milk, you wont grow up being strong and healthy…  The same with the Bible and Christianity, If you don’t read the Bible you wont know what’s right and wrong and you will end up backsliding into darkness.  Another example, will you trust a teenager to drive a car on the highway the first time with no license? No, because there’s a lot of things to concentrate on while driving and with no license there is no proof that he will be able to cope with everything.  The same with Christianity, in order to be able to evade and protect yourself against the dangers of the world you need guidelines/ License and the Bible offers that to you…

 

Have a blessed evening.  Jesus loves you, no matter what 🙂
