Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

The Perfect Crime

Hollywood is fascinated when someone gets away with murder. They call it the “perfect” crime. But perfect murders are far from few and far between. Between 1951 and 2007 there were 851,063 murders in the United States[1]. During that time there were 296,000 “perfect” crimes[2]. That’s how many unsolved homicides there were during that time. Bringing that figure up in preaching and witnessing is a powerful way to reason with the unsaved about the reality of Hell. If a judge is good, he must strive to see that justice is done--that murderers are punished. Any judge who turns a blind eye to murder is extremely corrupt, and should be charged with a crime himself. Most people will acknowledge that God is good, and if He is good He must bring every one of those murderers to justice. If He doesn’t, He is corrupt by nature. However, God is so good He will “bring every work to justice, including every secret thing.” He also punish rapists, thieves, liars, adulterers, blasphemers, and fornicators. He will even judge down to the thoughts and intents of the human heart. He considers lust to be adultery, and hatred, murder . . . and the prison to which He will send them forever is called “Hell.”
