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'.
