I am an older minister who would rather preach the truth that saves the soul than preach for popularity. People are dying every day in large numbers without Christ while we are trying to please people instead of God. This is my attempt to make the truth accessible to everyone. The Bible is right!
What will you give in exchange for your soul?
This is personal. Our bodies will not go to heaven, nor will they go to hell. So then, why do we sacrifice so much to please our bodies (our flesh). Our bodies will rot, decay, and become nonexistent. However, our soul will live forever in eternal glory (heaven with Christ), or in eternal torment (hell with the tormentors).
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matthew 16:24-26)
Sin will take you to hell. Our sins are what we are trading or giving in exchange for our eternity with Christ. “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.” (Galatians 5:16-17)
Jesus shed His precious blood so that you could go back with Him when He returns. He gave you the life you are living now as an opportunity to prepare for His return. If it is your choice to go back with Him when He returns, then repent and be converted before it is too late!!! (Acts 2:38; 3:19; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)
