Verse Ref.:
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

About This Product

It’s late afternoon when you hear the doorbell ring and you head toward it with your four-year-old trotting along beside to get a peek at the visitor. A glance through the window in the front door sends a surge of adrenalin through your whole body, sweat breaks out on your forehead and your pulse jumps involuntarily. You saw his picture all over the news. The tattoos match, the car behind him running in the driveway matches, and the face is unmistakable. The news says he’s armed, dangerous and a most wanted killer. Would it be “intolerant” of the killer’s viewpoint to leave your door dead-bolted while you speed-dial 911?

We are taught to be tolerant of different viewpoints, cultures and races. Basic thoughtfulness and loving-kindness is what God teaches as well. However, somehow in all the sensible sensitivity, there is the mixed-up notion that right and wrong don’t exist. Truth is taught as though it depended on the situation. Each person can set their own code of conduct and sincerely live by it. No one else can judge them, stop them, or disagree with them without being considered “intolerant.” Every viewpoint is equally valid and true. Nothing could be more silly.

But God doesn’t present the truth He has given in His Word, the Bible, as a helpful set of suggestions to make our lives go easier and to make society happier. He doesn’t present sin and salvation as “options to consider.” He doesn’t chat with the killer at the door. He condemns him. That’s what we don’t like. We are the killers at the door. “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). We have committed the monstrous injustice and ingratitude of guiding ourselves by our own selfish and sinful lusts. God has every right to exclude us forever from His presence. “There shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie” (Revelation 21:27). Neither you nor I can deny having lied when it served our purposes. That makes us liars who have no right to God’s home in heaven. We have, at times, hated our brother too, which makes us murderers in heart (1 John 3:15).

However, God also deeply loves every one of us. He is “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). He couldn’t possibly allow us to enjoy time with Him while we refuse to repent of our sin, so He has provided a way of escape from sin. “God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him” (Romans 5:8-9). Carefully consider the following words of both love and uncompromising firmness: “God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved. He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:17-18).
