Today’s Topic:  Wrong Eternity?

Today’s Text:  Galatians 6:7-9  Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.   The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature  will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

In the midst of a very busy schedule I must take a moment and challenge your thinking with something this morning. No explanations, just a thought provoking statement that I want you to contemplate.

As I was driving through the city yesterday I read something on a church sign that challenged my thinking. I know what the Pastor is trying to say, I think, and I want to give him the benefit of the doubt. But in reality the theology is all wrong. It seems to appeal to our culture’s desire to never be responsible for our own actions. Here’s the statement:

“Don’t end up in the wrong eternity.”

Here’s why I think that’s wrong – NO ONE ENDS UP IN THE WRONG ETERNITY. We all end up in the eternity we have chosen for ourselves.

Think about it.
