Apostles' Creed: Life Everlasting

"And the life everlasting. Amen."

I honestly don't have much to say about this one.  Humans will live forever.  God's elect believers will be with him forever in heaven and the rest will live in eternal agony in hell.

If that is the case, then from a recovery standpoint, you need to repent of your sins and make Jesus your Lord.

If people have a choice between heaven and hell, they will choose heaven, but they will not choose Jesus as their Lord and have someone rule over them.  But you cannot have heaven unless Jesus has taken over your life by God's grace and poured his Holy Spirit into you.

But our Lord is gracious and waits to come back to earth so that many people will come to repentance.  If I had it my way, he would come back today and I would not have to hear about wars, Islamic terrorism, liberal/LGBT bullying, and self-righteous "Christianity."  Jesus would come and sort everything out.  But I am not God or nearly as gracious.

Hebrews 3:13, "But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called "Today," so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness."  I encourage you to come to Jesus if you have not done so already.  He will take away your sins and put his righteousness on you.  Just believe and abandon the sins that you are in love with with a gorgeous Savior who is way better!
