Session 7: Would You Consider Yourself To Be A Good Person? (The wake up call.)

I once went to a local festival and asked 300 people if they considered themselves to be a good person. 290 said they were.

The #1 reason why people feel they will go to heaven is because they think they are good enough to get into heaven.

In this video Kirk Cameron shares with a young man and lets him discover, based on God's standard, he is not good enough to get into heaven.

There are many good people, based on human standards. But, God does not judge us based on human standards. He judges us based on whether or not we haved obeyed Him. Whether or not we have sinned. Whether or not we have broken God's law.

"For whoever keeps the whoile law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it." - James 2:10

Why is sin, which means to disobey God, so bad that it deserves punishment in hell for eternity?

God's Word (the Bible) tells us that in some respects God is like an artist. He is like a potter who creates pottery. (In the Bible see: Isaiah 29:16, 45:9, 64:8, Romans 9:21) If the potter makes a cracked pot, he throws it away. A cracked pot would misrepresent the skills of the potter. It would indicate the potter was not a good potter. So cracked and defective pots, because they do not accurately represent who the potter is, are destroyed. The potter can do this because he created the pots. He owns them. He can do what she wants with them.

We are created by God in God's image. God created us. He owns us. Because we are created in God's image we represent who God is to the universe. Just as a potter's excellent pots give glory to the potter, our purpose is to glorify God. If we do not accurately represent God, if we do not accurately reflect His perfection and love, we are misrepresenting God. Just as pots that do not glorify the potter are destroyed, when we do not glorify God the result is that we are headed for spiritual destruction or what we call hell.

The commands in the Bible that are called God's laws, such as the Ten Commandments, are actually a description of God's character. They describe who He is and who we should be if we are to accurately represent God. God has even put something inside of us that tells us when we are misrepresenting God. It is called our conscience.

When we break God's laws, we fall short of the perfection of God. We misrepresent the character of God and we thus earn the consequences… destruction of our spirit (hell). The only way hell can be avoided is if we can find someone, who has never disobeyed God, who will pay the penalty we owe in our place.

That person is Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ willingly died. He gave himself to die in your place, so that your penalty is paid and you may freely enter heaven, if you accept this free gift he is offering you.

09437: Out of the Comfort Zone Out of the Comfort Zone
By Ray Comfort / Bridge-logos Publishing

Most of us have our own "comfort zone"---the place where we feel safe and satisfied. However, circumstances often drive us out from that area in which we feel most comfortable. Such was the case when Ray Comfort found himself being taken 7,000 miles from his homeland in New Zealand, to speak to the daunting residents of the most dangerous part of Los Angeles, California. MacArthur Park was infamous for being the home of murderers, drug addicts, thieves, pimps, prostitutes, and unfortunately, the destitute and homeless.

At times, this fast-moving and true-life drama will make your hair stand on end as you enter the dark side of the supernatural. It will also encourage you and lift your faith as you learn how a celebrated Hollywood actor teamed up with Ray Comfort to bring an amazing message to America. Originally published as My Friends Are Dying! and The Power of Darkness. Includes the previously published Miracle in the Making.
