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.

Towing the Party Line...

"Hmmm, interesting point Ray. Your God is a jealous God, one that demands to be first place in your life; doesn’t that sound a little selfish and self important to you? God is the life giver, but no one asked for this life, and as for being the life giver, why does he not sustain life also?...At least Satan offered Jesus something in return, God just threatens you. There's no freewill in this deal, you're in a lot of trouble is you don't tow the fascistic party line." Andy Duchemin

You will not get into trouble because you didn’t "tow the party line." If you lose your political seat because you didn't vote with your party, that's no big deal. You just look for another job. But if you die in your sins, you die as a criminal before God, and that means you will get perfect Justice--damnation in a terrible place called "Hell." You will lose your soul (your life).

Tell me, what is more important to you than your life? Before you answer, you might like to think about how you are at the moment prioritizing your love of sin more than your love of your life. Think about how precious life is.

It's important to understand that God isn't the One who will send you to Hell, in the same way a judge in civil court doesn't send a guilty prisoner to prison. It's his crimes that send him there. The judge merely sees that justice is done, and that's what God will do on Judgment Day.

His jealousy isn't like human jealousy. It's not hateful and selfish. It is a just and right intense desire for His creation to love Him. And this love for us isn't drawn out by anything in us that is desirable. He loves us because He is love itself. That incredible love was demonstrated on the cross of Calvary:

"But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us" (Romans 5:8--Amplified Bible).

P.s. Evidence of your sinful nature, is that you justify Satan, and impugn God...the One who gave you life.
