This is a letter to our friends –

Hell-fire & brimstone

Believe it! The God of creation exists! For decades our society has attempted to relegate God to the sidelines. I settle the issue with just two words – Intelligent Design.

Everything will reveal attributes of its producer. Nothing exists without set of laws to govern it. A law is a rule of action prescribed by a superior, and which an inferior is obliged to obey. “If you ride in our carpool you don’t smoke.” “If you live in our house you obey the house-rules.”

The obligation to obey is greater or less according to the dependency upon the superior. That is – You can smoke, but not in our carpool. — Our house-rules don’t apply to you if you live somewhere else.

Since you and I are completely dependent upon our Creator (The God of creation) for everything (!) we are completely obliged to obey His laws. That obligation is universal. It is not subject to debate or choice.

The difference between a law and advice – Law comes with a penalty. You smoke in our carpool – you don’t ride with us. You break our house-rules – you move out. The God of creation sets the penalties for breaking His laws.

Since society has “sidelined God” – we have little concern about ignoring His laws. We tend to take the penalties in stride – until – reality hits us in the nose! A marriage breaks up, or a child commits suicide.

Think about it – How serious is it to ignore the Being upon whom we depend for our next breath. The Being who continually demonstrates His love and care for us in so many ways. Then consider that all those laws of nature and of nature’s God work to support and protect our life, your liberty, and our possessions! In that light, the slightest transgression looks very serious!

We enjoy learning, now and then, abut His loving personality and the fact that He has created a path for us to be forgiven for our transgressions and to spend eternity in a place far, far beyond our fondest imaginations.

But our society ignores the ultimate penalty a truly just God of creation must impose upon the unrepentant transgressors who have chosen to rebel against His laws. Hell, the counter-concept of Heaven truly does exist! Whether we choose to believe it or not does not change the fact!
