us to live by. If we understand that we are indeed held responsible and accountable for our sinful actions against God and that we must suffer the consequences because God is holy, we truly wouldn’t want it any other way. If God made exceptions or bent the rules he would have to do it for everybody. If he did it here on earth he would have to do it in heaven for all eternity. It would no longer be a place of purity and truth, nor would God be. God is not a liar, the devil is. What his word claims is no more or no less; it is the way it’s going to be. The bible is not some fairy tale; it is very real and God’s instruction manual to live by. The business of saving our souls is extremely serious. The book of revelation explains that Christ was here the first time as a lamb; the second time he will come as a lion and pour out his wrath upon disobedient sinners.
God is fair and just. He is going to make sure that every last soul that he has created will hear the truth and the decision is then left up to them. We don’t get to do every little thing our heart desires, unless it is by God’s will and direction. When he instructs us we must obey. When we live in disobedience we will be reprimanded for our sin. This temporal life is more than about our ego and self-centeredness of what’s in it for me. The question is what’s in it for God? We didn’t create our self and this world in which we live; he did. What right do we have to lay claim to anything? If God says don’t sin because we are responsible and accountable, we better believe it.
