It has been said that America is going secular in its beliefs, and there will be no room for the church in years to come. If that is the case, man will have to answer as to why the majority will spend eternity in hell (Matthew 7:13-14). Jesus spoke regarding the condition of man on the last day. He said that most men travelled the “broad way,” or the highway to hell, and only a few walked on what He said was the “narrow way.”
Jesus built and died for His church, and He didn’t do so without a purpose (Matt. 16:18; Acts 20:28). The church is to be like the ark was for Noah during the flood—for the church are the people called from the sin of this world and placed into the safety of the Lord’s flock (Colossians 1:12-13; Acts 2:47; John 10:9; Eph 5:23). Like there were no saved people outside the ark, there are no saved people outside the church.
So if man becomes secular during life, then man had no use for the church, thereby keeping himself out of it and at the same time condemning himself to the fires of hell.
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
