Words of Comfort: Unfruitful.


“You know after listening to the show yesterday, you posed the question, where do you think you will go after you die? With cultural Christianity rampant in most places (guilt by birth in a Christian home, or after a sinner’s prayer some time back) most of the ‘friends’ that have no fruit would say ‘Heaven’ of course. So, what would you say to someone that has no fruit in their lives, yet would say Heaven is where they would go?” Lynda

The world thinks all is well between them and God because they cling to their own conception of what they believe God is like. Self-righteousness is rooted in idolatry. They go about to establish their own righteousness “being ignorant of the righteousness which is of God.” So what you should do it show them the nature of God revealed in the Bible. Show them His perfect standard of righteousness—that He considers lust to be adultery and hatred to be murder. If the conscience is doing its God-given duty, that should stir a healthy fear of facing Him. Nothing makes sinners flee from sin like the fear of God. Without that healthy fear they will remain complacent in their sin.
