With a bible in my hand… posted 06/03/20
If going to church made you a Christian, by that logic going to a bakery would make you a biscuit.
Churches can't get you to heaven, only your faith in the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary as payment for your sins can do that.
Fact is, you can go to hell from a church pew just as easily as from a bar stool.
Going to church in a hearse makes your attendance just a little too late for Bible study, however. At that point it is past time for learning what the Bible says about redemption and salvation and eternal life. Even if the hearse driver knows and even if the information is given at the funeral, it is too late for you because you are not listening.
Now, doesn't it just make good sense that since it is inevitable that you will go to church sooner or later, it would be good to make it sooner?
Search for the church of God's choice, not the church of your choice, and learn what the Bible says about rightly dividing the word of truth and the preaching of Jesus Christ according to the revelation of the mystery.
Then, when the hearse finally does show up, you will have settled the eternal matters.
Not for the sake of the hypocrites. Not to make some preacher happy. Not based upon your offerings or church attendance or how many services you attended when the weather was bad. Or how many committees you served on.
But rather, based upon the information in the Bible in your hand.
In the casket, at the church, when they slip a Bible into your cold stiff hand, it is too late to "Study to show yourself approved unto God." (II Ti 2.15)
Trust Christ’s payment for your sins… right now!!!
