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.

Tragic Irony

A heavy metal rock group called Early Graves lost one of their vocalists in a tragic accident recently. Another member of the group fell asleep at the wheel while driving their vehicle, killing him and injuring another band member. None of the passengers were using wearing seat belts. It seems that the lyrics to one of their songs was prophetic:

"I've seen this road a thousand times and I can't,I'm not looking back.
This is so unfamiliar; death is no man's friend.
Yet I'll stay here until I hear him roar.
Death is screaming my name but I refuse to listen to him.
The choices I've made will lead me to an early [expletive] grave."

It's wise to wear a seat belt, and it's also wise not to drive when you are tired. Most people don’t realize that the sleeping process has a pattern. The brain shuts down before the eyes close. That means that you will never be conscious of the moment you fall asleep. One minute you are so in control you don't even bother to put on a seatbelt, and the next moment you wake up dead.

The sleeping process is similar to atheism. The brain shuts down before the eyes close. That means that an atheist can look at creation and not see the Creator, such a no-brainer that a child can see Him. The Bible calls such a person a "fool," and I believe the Bible. Daily I blog to fools in the genuine hope that they will use their brain and see. There are eloquent fools, ignorant fools, repetitious fools, and some friendly fools. Nevertheless, they are fools, and a fool cannot be reasoned with. What's more, they hide behind the skirts of science and profess to be wise...just like that ancient book, the Bible, says they would (see Romans 1:21-23). It even exposes their motive as being one of love for sexual sin (see Romans 1:24).

When the heavy metal vocalist went to an early grave, their forum fans were shocked. One said "Oh wow people are just dying." Oh wow indeed. People are dying all around us, and it doesn't always knock gently on your door. It can come through your wall like an out-of-control 18-wheeler and in an instant, take you out. You won't even know what hit you.

Early Graves thought that it was death that was screaming their name, but it was actually the Law of God. It calls for capital punishment. Yet the Judge is rich in mercy to those who will think, see, and listen. God says to leave the room before the vehicle hits. To do that, you simply have to repent and trust the Savior.

"O Lord, how great are Your works! Your thoughts are very deep. A senseless man does not know, nor does a fool understand this" (Psalm 92:5-6, NKJV).
