He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:11–13)

Such a text cannot be properly handled without getting into areas that some may consider radical. It cannot be handled without considering the fact that there are many people in the world who are God’s creation but not God’s children.

That is a difficult concept for many people to handle. Since the modern gospel of the Joel Osteen type would have us all believe that just like all dogs, all people are going to heaven.

Only those that receive him and believe in his name will be given the promise of an eternal reward. We have to remember it all comes down to a choice, we either respond positively to the Gospel message or we don’t. God doesn’t send anybody to hell, we either push the “up” button or we don’t.

Yes, God is love but he is also just in all he does, you can strongly disagree but you will still be wrong, you can deny he even exists and you will still be wrong. It is still your choice.

So choose
