No one can be certain that there is life after death!

I hear a lot of people saying that you are welcome to your beliefs about God, the afterlife, judgement for sin etc but you can't be sure. The main logic behind this is that we only get one chance at life and that no one comes back to tell us what is on the other side.

All of this of course is true if you only have access to personal experience but of course we have far more than that. We have a vast history of people who have not just anecdotal evidence but personal history and experience with God.

As a Christian I have become convinced that the bible is the word of God. You would need to read it for yourself and do some research to check this out. Most people say that they don't have time to do this. BUT if your future destination in the next life hangs on the truthfulness of this book then it would be wise to look into it seriously.

History has proven the bible to be trustworthy and to date no freshly discovered fact has proven it wrong. The bible speaks about matters of ordinary life as well as about spiritual issues. Archeology, geography, medical science to name a few have eventually proven that the bible was accurate. Let me give you one example. In Leviticus 17.11 the bible states that 'the life of the flesh is in the blood".  This was stated thousands of years before medical science discovered the vast plethora of things that blood contains to maintain human life. I could on... about the planetary system. the water cycle, oceanic currents and much more.

My point is that if the bible can be trusted in things that we can verify it gives us the confidence to trust it in areas where we have no expertise i.e. the spiritual.

As I close may I state some of the things the bible does say about the unknown.

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: 28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation (Hebrews.9.27)

Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, 29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation (John 5.28,29)

And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved Acts 16.31

It is all true. I trust that you will be richly blessed as you consider this blog.

Jimmy Savile

If you read the news you will be aware of the furore that is going on in the British media over the allegations of child abuse and sexual impropriety in the life of the late Jimmy Savile.

It all makes for sick reading and while continuing claims arise and the full picture is still not complete it does make one aware that things that we have done in life are not 'done and dusted' upon our death. Some might say what's the point; the man's dead and buried! The point of course is that we still believe that wrong is wrong and that justice is important. 

May I make the simple point that we cannot escape the fact of and the effect of the things we do in our lives. Sin is sin, wrong is wrong and we will all stand in the highest court of justice i.e. God's. The Bible says that God "has appointed a day in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he has ordained; whereof he has given assurance unto all, in that he has raised him from the dead". The judge will be Jesus, the day is set but unrevealed and all will stand before God (Revelation 20:11-15). The advice of the bible is "prepare to meet your God". The offer through the death and resurrection  of Jesus is 'through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins'.
