Heaven and Hell Congtrasted

Life is full of choices, but they all typically boil down to this: whom will you serve?  Rom.6:16-18 makes a similar comparison of choices.  But if the choice of whom we will serve is too complicated or difficult, God helps us by clarifying the choice based on rewards.  Specifically, the rewards of each choice- heaven for choosing God, or hell for choosing Satan, self and sin, or anything and everything else, have clearly contrasted benefits.  Let’s spend a few minutes considering these choices.

 

Wisdom or Experience

Willie Nelson is quoted as saying, “Don’t come to me for wisdom. Come to me for experience.”  This sounds like sage advice- at least on the surface.  It perhaps even sounds somewhat “deep.”   And it may indeed be both of those things, but what is he really saying?  If I understanding his meaning, he’s saying that he has no wisdom to impart, but he has plenty of experiences to share.

Men’s One-Day Study: “How to Constructively Deal with Homosexuality”

This material was also presented as a part of our twice a year Men's One-Day Study.  As with previous efforts in this series, it was originally designed for preachers, but is open to any men interested in studying God's word in a more advanced way.  This particular study was specially written and delivered to help preachers, elders, deacons, and fathers deal with the subject of homosexuality in a constructive and productive way.  The session topics covered are: Thinking Through Homosexuality; Adolescent Motivations for Homosexuality; Homosexuality and the Bible; and Constructively Dealing with Homosexuality.  An Appendix of additional resource articles (both true and some that are included only for illustrative purposes) is also included.   After you download it, but BEFORE you decide to print it, please understand that this is a Word file consisting of 51 pages (over 24,500 words).
