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.

Try Again

Here’s a lame joke to make an important point. A man walked into a barber shop, sat down in the chair and said, “I want you to cut a huge chunk out of the back, and then hack the sides so that it looks like I had a fight with the lawnmower.” The barber looked shocked and said, “We can’t do that sir!” To which the customer replied, “Well you did last time.”

If a barber makes a mess of your hair, you don’t stop getting your hair trimmed. Instead, you look for a different barber. The same applies to finding a good church. Those who complain about the Church being filled with hypocrites should look around until they find one that doesn’t have any. But it’s been well-said that when you find the perfect church, don't join it because you will ruin it. Most don’t know that there is a difference between a church and the Church. A “church” is a building that fills up once or twice a week with church-goers (some of whom are hypocrites).

However, the true Church (known as the “Body of Christ”) is made up of people who love God, irrespective of where they fellowship or of their denomination. The Church is made up of genuine Christians (not pretenders). So make sure you are part of the Church (God knows who are His) if you want to enter Heaven and avoid Hell.
