They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them. Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things. Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich. Whoso keepeth the law is a wise son: but he that is a companion of riotous men shameth his father. (Proverbs 28:4-7)
Complete and utter surrender to GOD may not be the way most folks think we should come to GOD, but it is the wisest and only true course we have before us. We either do it GOD's way, or He will reject us (which makes us poor indeed) and cast us out from His presence. The alternative of Hell and the Lake of Fire are very unpleasant destinations of the wicked and perverse that reject GOD and His wisdom, but that is everyone's choice.
It is to our shame, that we (Christians) are afraid sometimes to tell this part of the Good News (because destruction itself is NOT good news.) But without the punishment, the pardon is meaningless. And GOD wants us to be delivered from sIn, and it's destructive hold on our life. He wants in relationship and fellowship with Himself and other believers. Not in the future, not 'by-and-by' but now and abundantly joyful here.
That is the GOOD NEWS of Jesus Christ and the Cross. I urge you to repent and receive Him. And if you know Him then tell someone else of His wonderful gift of eternal life.
