Sincerity – Aug. 31

bottles of water

IMAGINE A CHEMISTRY lab where there are three bottles on a table.

One bears the symbol H2SO4 (sulphuric acid), the second bears the symbol HCL (hydrochloric acid), and the third bears the symbol H20 (water).

To the untrained eye, all three bottles appear to be the same – all are liquids and all are colorless.

But a sincere person, mistaking the sulphuric acid for water, is no less dead than another person who drank the acid intentionally.

One was sincerely wrong, but both are sincerely dead.

In 1 John 4:1 the Bible reminds us, “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.”

Good reader, it does make a difference, in fact – an eternal difference, what a person believes.

Some doctrines will condemn our souls, while other doctrines will save them (cf. 2 John 9).

Think about it.

“God loves you and I love you and that’s the way it’s gonna be!” – Mike
