Will you again consider God but this time outside of the terms and language of religion. A good judge wont let a rapist off and the ultimately good Judge, who loves you, ensured that Jesus the innocent paid for every one of your crimes against HIm. Your forgiveness is offered as you read this because it has been fully paid for. The good news is that good! Religion involves “holding on” yet God speaks of surrendering. Pride hates that but I implore you to humble yourself now before the Maker of the universe. Time is short and not guaranteed so turn from religion to Jesus today.

Recently I was witnessing on Grafton Street and some radical muslim gents with anti-Israel t shirts came up to me and asked questions. I asked the main chap "You are a muslim. Tell me how to get to heaven". He proposed a bunch of actions and rules to which I asked "If I do that will it make me good?" "Oh no it wont" he admitted. Here lies the problem of Islam and all religions...they don't make you good or holy and yet God is holy! Take Jesus' death out of the picture (as muslims do when they believe he was substituted on the cross by Judas!) and you are left without hope. Thankfully He did die for all and so we have hope when we turn to Him.
