No wonder!

John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.

Centuries have gone by since Jesus Christ said these words to the Jewish scholars. Their answer was simply: "Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true."

Even today, the nations of the world, as well as the majority of Christianity are sitting in spiritual darkness. Why? Because they believe that Jesus was only a man. They do not accept His testimony, they do not even try to, they prefer to depend upon their own wisdom. It is a shame, everything could be completely different for those people who do not accept His Word. God is not happy about the death of a sinner. He would prefer it that the sinner would have been converted to Him. As a result, a person goes unsaved into eternity, separated from God, without Christ.

A person only has the opportunity to take a hold of the grace of God so long as he or she is living on this earth; after his or her death, judgment comes. This is dead serious! The Bible clearly states that only Jesus Christ can justify us. Luther realized this. I do not understand why people of this generation have not learnt from the past. They live and carry on without God, as if there was no eternity and no need to care about their salvation. After death there is nothing - so they believe. The worldly things, the temporal things are more important for them. It is no wonder that this world is without light. Nevertheless, God still has people who are willing to receive His Word. rw
