Choice will be forever
To the Editor:
Some time ago a woman wrote to you about her disappointment with how the Anoka school district was handling bullying of students.
It seems that she thought that being gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgender were OK, but that is not how God looks at it, so why should we?
I absolutely do not believe in bullying either and never have, but that doesn’t mean that being gay or any of these other ways of living is OK.
The Bible, which is God’s Word, says that “all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God.” Romans 3:23.
That means every one of us is guilty of sin, and the only way we can be forgiven is to believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross some 2,000 years ago to pay the penalty for our sins.
Romans 3:23 says, “For God sent Christ Jesus to take the punishment for our sins and to end all God’s anger against us.”
But to receive this forgiveness we have to be sorry for the sins we have done and stop doing them. We must really repent and ask God to forgive us.
There is only one of two places we are going. Either heaven or hell. In heaven there will be no pain or sorrow and we’ll be enjoying heaven forever with Jesus, who paid the penalty for our sins.
Those who do not believe that Jesus died for their sins will spend eternity in hell, and the Bible says that there will be weeping and knashing of teeth and that will be forever.
Now it’s up to you where you want to go when you die. You have to make the choice, and whatever choice you make will be forever.
