Holiness is one Christian quality that is not a once of or momentary requirement but a lifestyle. One may be holy at one moment but not the next, simply because it must be maintained. Sadly, there is no moment a Christian ought not to be holy. Should a Christian die when he or she is unholy at that particular moment, that believer will miss Heaven – none negotiable. It sounds harsh but true and many so called believers have lost their eternity in Heaven to compromising on holiness standards.
If holiness is such a requirement, what then does the Bible say about its benefits? I want to quote Revelation 3:5, a verse that points at holiness as an ultimatum.
This one fact cannot be disputed. ‘Someone in hell has been there for more than a thousand years’. In fact, not one person but billions of them. I believe that hell exists because I believe that Jesus is real. Jesus was not a made up concept to manipulate people like many other people say, but He is God’s son. I’m even disappointed at those that have left the way of Christ and opted for atheism such as Hill and other religions.
Whatever Jesus said is true and He alone knows exactly what the afterlife entails. A person already in heaven or hell does not know as much about the place he dwells in more that Jesus does.
How do you know if what you believe in is not the true religion? How do you justify yours when everybody else can do the same? How do you take the message to your children when the education system in schools teaches children that all religions are the same and therefore they are free to follow whichever religion they feel comfortable to take.
I am a Christian. I have heard convincing testimonies online on other religions by people that unwaveringly believe in their religions. However, it always gets me wondering why people do not see the truth about God and the only way He has provided for man to unite with Him.
You may call it prosperity or success but it can comes either from God or from the devil. Choose today the source of prosperity you want but know that each has respective consequences, in today’s language I would say ‘terms and conditions apply’.
Dishonest gain is multi fold and Christians may find themselves involved. It’s not only the big things that go on headlines like the embezzlement of employer, church or government funds. Honestly speaking, it is human nature to work a way around to get things cheaper, free and if it calls for dishonest gain, people would make an attempt.
