To Believe or Not To Believe...it's your Eternity, where will you spend it?

This is definitely worth reading...

Interview with Bono about Christ

The question that comes to my mind is why do we make it so difficult?  Why is the simple grace and truth of the Cross so hard for us to accept?

I think it is because we come at everything from a human perspective.  We look at it through a tainted lens of sin, human depravity, and a need for everything to have a clean and pat answer.  But that isn't how it works.  That isn't grace, that isn't the love and forgiveness Jesus offers.  Thank God!

It is hard for us to comprehend through our finite minds.  We will never fully grasp it this side of heaven...or hell, if you choose not to follow Jesus.  You may think you are making a decision simply to not believe in any higher power, but please, dear friend, understand it is more than that.  By choosing not to follow Jesus, you are choosing the path of Satan and hell.  I know this won't sit well with many and I truly do not intend to offend.  However, I wouldn't be doing any of you a favor to sugarcoat the truth.  I don't want to see anyone friend or foe, headed for hell.  And neither does the God I serve.

He has made a way for you...His blood spilled out for your sins.  Won't you consider it?  Lee Strobel did.  He was an atheist and set out to disprove the Bible.  Every avenue he turned down just proved the truth of the Christ of the Cross over and over.  Lee is now a leading teacher and thought leader on Christianity.  Winner of several Gold Medallion award for his books The Case for Christ, The Case for Faith and The Case for a Creator.

Lee Strobel's Bio

You may say it is far-fetched...something only weak minded people need.  I say it takes more faith to believe there is not a God than to believe there is.
