Choice to make

To the Editor:

Everyone has their opinion and belief whether there is a creator.

Our Creator-God sovereignly decreed that man should be free to make his or her own moral choice between good and evil. This is God’s law of choice and consequences. All who willingly commit themselves to His son, Jesus Christ, in the obedience of faith shall receive eternal life (John 14:6).

He also has decreed that all who love darkness and continue in rebellion against God shall remain in spiritual alienation and will suffer eternal death. God sends no one to hell (eternal death). We all make that choice ourselves.

There is freedom to choose which side we shall be on, but no freedom to negotiate the results of the choice after death once it has been made. Each one of us must choose right up to the moment of death whether to accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, or remain in rebellion. After death, it is too late, and eternal darkness, aloneness and judgment by punishment for unforgiven sin will surely result.

Do not wait. Make your choice today and welcome the Holy Spirit into your life now. Do not gamble with our sovereign God, the creator of us all. This is the most important choice you will ever make. Remember, eternity never, ever ends. After death, we all go either up or down.

Believe it or not, it’s entirely your choice. Save yourself, believe and ask for Jesus forgiveness.
