Why a Warning?

Someone asks why the message is expressed as a warning. Wouldn’t that just scare people off?

Every person has the right to know the consequence of turning their back on God. It has to be told that God is a beloved Father for all those who receive Jesus as the Savior, but it also has to be told that the one that turns his back on Him, will one day meet Him as the Judge. At that point there will be no second chance, no possibility for repenting. The Gospels in the Bible speaks about two alternative outcomes after death; God’s kingdom or a place of hopelessness and suffering. Jesus said;


"Do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." (Matthew 10, 28)

This is a strong warning. Compared to these words, the warning on this flyer is very soft. Both the warning and the solution have to be expressed, and therefore it is up to everyone to make their own choice.

A woman that received the flyer replied after reading the message;
"But I am a happy atheist." As carefully as possible I told her that she wouldn’t feel happy, the day she woke up on the other side. Her perspective only included the life here and now and she meant that she did not need God or Jesus to be happy. That might be, but this life is short and Jesus’ sacrifice is about much more than just the happiness of here and now. I dearly hope and pray that she will take the warning seriously and convert to the Lord Jesus.

"Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts..." (Hebrews 3, 7-8)
