This brings us to the responsibility of Christians. Which would be better: 1. For the sinner to come to a knowledge of his/her sinfulness and repent?; or, 2. To fall into the hands of the living God on judgment day? The answer is obvious for any believer. This raises the old question. In a tricky world like this one, what is the believer’s testimony going to be?
One approach could be the truthfulness of the Bible. The question has mostly been settled centuries ago. The Bible is the inspired word of God. It is no different from looking at yourself in the mirror. You know it is you. Why do you know it’s you in the mirror? By its’ looks. The same with the Bible. And there is much to be found there. The immortality of the soul, the dangers of sinning, the reality of hell, and the love of Christ are good for starters. It may be difficult to come up with answers to everything that is asked. The reality, though, is not being able to answer all the questions doesn’t change the truthfulness of the Bible. Wisdom for us is a work in progress. We may know the answers someday and we strive for that.
Sinning is part of the human condition. Romans 3:23 states that all have sinned. All is all. We sin because we are sinners. Only God’s grace spares us from an everlasting hell. And because we recognize that we sin, God has prepared a place for us (John 14:2). As sinners who are saved we have become Christ’s witnesses. Like Paul says in Romans 1:6 we are also the called of Jesus Christ.
