“Why Choose Hell when Heaven is Free?”

HELL is a choice!

We are all born sinners – wouldn’t you agree? Ever see any sinners in your neighborhood? On the road? How about in stores where you shop?  Maybe even in your family! Simple explanation – Bible says, “All have sinned” (Romans 3:23) Sin is universal…as a result, what are consequences of such a declaration?

DEATH! What a horrible thought.

So…after DEATH, what? Simple – the default option is HELL and I do not mean hell on earth, I mean HELL, HELL! “Lake of Fire” as the Bible describes it[1] – eternal punishment forever and ever. Not a pretty picture.

Options available to you today:

Door #1 – do nothing…take the default option. Pity you!

Door #2 – engage in good deeds, start going to church, clean up your act, quit your bad habits. Sorry that only returns you to Door #1 – as good as doing nothing at all!

Door #3 – Trust in what Jesus Christ did for YOU on the cross some 2,000 years ago. Long story short – HE died so that you might live. Lots of verses can attest to that statement – I’ll get to the point:

John 3:36  “He who believes [your choice to believe or not] in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.

Choose LIFE over WRATH!

Acts 4:12  “And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”

Only one way exists to avoid HELL and opt for HEAVEN – by the work of another – Jesus Christ. A free gift. How do you opt for that?

  “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved

Acts 16:31

You might ask – just what does it mean to “believe?” Simple, place your faith, trust, reliance in what Jesus Christ did on the cross for YOU. He paid your sin debt, and you merely acquire the benefits by believing in His work on the cross.

That is exactly what choosing HEAVEN is all about. Believing on Jesus Christ who has taken your punishment and offered you freedom from the judgment that condemns you from birth.

John 3:16  “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

Time is slipping away! Choose HEAVEN while you have the chance.

Hope to see you there!

[1] Revelation 20:15
