That Does Not Alter the Fact

Perhaps you do not believe in "original sin?" Perhaps you do not agree with the "born in sin and shapen in iniquity" doctrine?
But that does not alter the force of the truth of God:
You may class yourself as good as the majority, and a good deal better than many. But are you included in the Scripture which says: "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God"? Rom. 3:2323For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans 3:23).
Have you, even in your own estimation, reached the standard that God desires you to reach? Have you lived that life which never "comes short" and "never goes beyond" (or transgresses) God's will? If you have not, you must plead "Guilty" at the bar of God, and you must bear the awful sentence: "The soul that sinneth it shall die.”
"Shall die!" what does it mean? It means to be cut off from all we hold dear in this life. To leave friends and all the happy and holy influences in this world, and, above all, to be severed eternally from God. Nor is this all; it means to be shut in with all that is wicked and sinful, and to be with all the unrepenting souls forever.
"O," you say, "is there no escape from this terrible doom?" Listen: "Jesus was made a little lower than the angels, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for every man." Heb. 2:99But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honor; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. (Hebrews 2:9).
"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shall be saved.”
Will you believe now?
