Excerpt from The Unspeakable Gift: The Gift of Eternal Life Through Jesus Christ Our Lord The same may be said of the still more striking concession of the London Missionary Society in con ferring on the same person the honor of moving the adoption of their Report, last May, at Exeter Hall, again without a breath of opposition. I mention these facts to prove to the American Churches what is the state of public opinion here. It is making a decided movement towards open and avowed tolera tion Of what some of us consider the central idea of Revelation - the center whence radiate. All the great gospel doctrines of Justification, Sanctification, Re demption and Resurrection, the Deity and Atonement of Christ, and the work of the Holy Spirit, and lastly, the doctrine of Retribution.

Every time you sin, I want you to repeat to yourself "the wages of sin is death!" I trust after you finished reading DANGEROUS CROSSING - LOOK, LISTEN, AND LIVE, my words to you have been cheering and reassuring.

Transforming Lives through God's words, the Holy Bible, and Scriptures, " DANGEROUS CROSSING" ... is a consideration of the essence of sin with a garden of Eden experience. Yet it reveals the significance that unsaved sinners will pay for their sin with eternal separation from God and that they can escape that death through the gift of eternal life that Jesus Christ provides. Your spiritual journey begins with a fanatical desire for God and guides you through personal crossroads of Romans 6:23. This well-known Bible verse gives us insight on how we should LOOK, LISTEN, and LIVE! Every time you sin, I want you to repeat to yourself "the wages of sin is death!" I trust after you finished reading "DANGEROUS CROSSING LOOK, LISTEN, AND LIVE, " my words to you have been cheering and reassuring. I have been made glad and blessed, so I feel sure of you that my joy through Jesus Christ may be the joy of you also.
He continued, “The sum and substance of the Old and New Testament results in two eminently consolatory facts: 'The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life' [Rom 6:23], and 'the gifts and calling of God are without ...

According to Christian doctrine, what happens to those who have died? While traditionally it has been said that one group of people spends eternity in heavenly happiness while another group experiences conscious, unending torment in hell, there are other Christians who believe in alternativesthat hell is simply a separation from God, that the lost are simply annihilated and not subject to torment, or that actually, in the end, all will be reconciled to God and live in heavenly glory. The Gift of God Is Eternal Life explores a five-century journey that traces the development and dispersal of the doctrines of universalism and conditional immorality in a compelling narrative collection of short stories. Beginning from when these doctrines were merely whispered about or published anonymously to the days when traveling evangelists preached them in the new and growing American republic, these engaging vignettes show how this once intense debate between Christians has evolved into modern times where such ideas can be freely discussedeven in mainstream television and evangelism. Do infants who die prior to an age of accountability receive salvation, and are those who have never heard the Christian message simply doomed? What about loved ones who die without having embraced the Christian gospelor those who believe in less-traditional Christian dogmas and institutions? The Gift of God Is Eternal Life can help both believers and nonbelievers understand the implications of these theological perspectivesnot just in an afterlife, but in their own lives here and now.

GOD'S GIFT OF ETERNAL LIFE- by B MathewThis rich man in the parable cared a lot about his material life, his social standing and about his appearance, bought the finest clothes, drove the latest cars, lived in the finest house, was member of the finest club in town, was the finest RELIGIOUS man in town. But he forgot that going deeper down his outer temporary body, he was actually a living SOUL, the real him who needed the gift of eternal life which Jesus offers. The rich man in the parable neglected his Soul and as a result he found himself in Hell fires. Are you neglecting your Soul today?When you receive this Gift of Eternal Life from Jesus Christ after your sins are forgiven, you can be assured that when you die and leave your earthly life, your soul would be received up to Heaven where you will spend your eternity with Christ. But if your sins are not cleansed by the blood of Jesus, your soul will perish in eternal death in Hell fires where your soul would be tormented for eternity.But God has paid a terrible price for YOU! God crucified His only begotten Son, Jesus on the Cross for YOU. So that, if you come to Christ in repentance, your sins will be forgiven and thereafter you will receive the Gift of Eternal Life.

There is a unique story in each of us. Where that story begins, how it unfolds and how it will end are vital parts of our considerations. We are usually pretty clear about how it is currently unfolding but the other two ends of the spectrum are often clouded or confused by conflicting religious beliefs and mythology. The objective of this series, "Pleasure and Pain", is to shed some light on the process by which we grow in spirit. After almost 50 years of working as a psychologist, visiting over 36 countries and working with thousands of people who have told me their story, I can see some patterns to our spiritual growth. I can also see good reasons to put aside many religious teachings and more clearly focus on the nature of the human spirit. This means that instead of looking at "Original Sin" we need to focus on our "Original Blessings" and recognize that we are eternal beings. But the Gift of Eternal Life involves both pleasure and pain. For various reasons, some of us enjoy more of the first and suffer less of the second. For other people the reverse is true. In this book we identify some of the underlying reasons and explore some ways to make a positive difference.
