The more time passes before the coming of the Lord, the more false messages are being put out geared towards religion and not salvation. Emotions and feelings are taking over and souls are forgetting that it takes a change in ones heart for there to be salvation. Too much feeling and not enough repenting to the Lord for sins.
Compassion is becoming a substitute for correction. A soul working out his or her salvation with fear and trembling is almost unheard of today. The promises of God are for the obedient.
Well, the Bible says different. Man has gotten it confused. The Bible teaches to lay aside every weight and the sin that doth so easily beset you. The Bible teaches that the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life. The Bible teaches if a man or woman will confess their faults the Lord is faithful and just to forgive. To continue in sin and use an excuse for it is a death sentence for the soul. Sin has to be paid for! And the only one that has the ransom for sin is Jesus!! The blood that He shed on Calvary is sufficient to pay for sin.
Unrepented sin will send a soul to hell. May sound harsh. May sound cruel, but it is still the truth....any how. There is no way a God called preacher would not tell a soul what it needs to do to miss hell and go to Heaven. The hodge podge mixture of truth and untruth in the heart of so many is going to lead to an eternity of sorrow for some soul.
