“A BOXING MATCH”
aka “How good do I have to be to get to heaven?”
Imagine jumping in the ring with Mike Tyson?
A conversation between you and God:
God: “I challenge you to a fight. The loser will everlastingly burn in hell. Obviously, there’ll be no rematches either!”
You: “You’re on God!”
God: “Right … my fighter will be the Ten Commandments!”
You: “No worries God … I’ll jump in the ring myself!”
Here’s how it goes …
The first second of Round One … “BAM! WHACK!” … they carry you out on a stretcher.
And as you burn in the literal and everlasting hell, three scriptures you heard about in Sunday school, come flooding back to your mind …
“For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” (James 2:10) … the law will beat you everytime!
“Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them.” (Galatians 3:10) … the law will beat you everytime!
“Christ hath REDEEMED us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us:” (Galatians 3:13)
And as you burn and burn and burn and burn and burn and burn and burn forever … these will be your everlasting thoughts … along with the physical pain of course …
“What a fool I was! Why didn’t I send in Jesus Christ to fight God’s laws! Jesus would have beaten the Ten Commandments as my fighter on my behalf!”
Dear Reader you have a choice …
Hopefully you will now say “Thank you Jesus for defeating God’s laws for me! You have set me free from their impossible demands! Thank you for saving me! You only are my Saviour! You have REDEEMED me from the curse of the law, being made a curse for me:”
DEFINITION OF REDEEMED:
“To be saved with eternal security, never to be lost, with eternal salvation in heaven”
