THE LOOPHOLE

I recently heard a pastor relate a story about W.C. Fields when he was dying. A friend came by and saw him reading the Bible, which was something he would never do. His friend asked what he was doing, and he answered, “I’m looking for a loophole”.

I am amazed that people will try almost anything to escape the pains of hell, except the only true remedy available to them which is the salvation provided by Jesus Christ.

Some consider themselves too intellectual too accept “the Bible way” to heaven. In reality they are not smart enough to recognize the truth when they see it. Those who reject Christ either consciously, or in their ignorance will go through life groping in the darkness for that which can satisfy the emptiness within.

When people try to play mind games with GOD the best they can come up with is empty rhetoric. They talk and listen for the echo to repeat their nonsense and thereby be edified with their own foolishness.

GOD is many things, so many are HIS characteristics, which are too many to number. HE is patient; otherwise man would have ceased to exist eons ago. Along with his patience is HIS grace and mercy. These are what we cling to most of all, for we are admonished to come to his very throne room and make our plea directly to HIM.

Psalms 8: 4 what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?

A greater question is “Why is man?” What is our purpose for being? I believe the answer is; GOD is developing a society of righteous people who by freewill have chosen to be his children. His desire is a people who can be in his presence without any ulterior motive, other than to worship and adore HIM.

This can only be accomplished one way, and that is through Jesus Christ. His declaration, “I am the door,” bespeaks of entering into GOD’S kingdom through Him.

Religions are a dime a dozen, all claim to have some kind of eventual reward but their problem is they are not: “The way the truth and the life.” All their claims are a waste of good air. Christianity is called the “Know so salvation,” to know so, in the spirit, soul and body.
