JESUS DID NOT COME TO DESTROY MEN’S LIVES

What the world needs is salvation, hope, love, and comfort.

As Christians we are commissioned to bring the Gospel’s hope, love, and comfort to all the world.

We do not have the capability of knowing if or when someone will repent and believe the Gospel.

No one is “too wicked” or “too old” to be saved. It could happen at anytime to anyone, even at the very end of their lives.

Before Paul the apostle became a believer he persecuted Christians and consented to their death. Paul the apostle is a pattern of God’s longsuffering.

1 Timothy 1:12-16 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. And the grace of our Lord was exceeding abundant with faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.

Remember Karla Faye Tucker and David Berkowitz?

My own mother became a believer when she was in her 80’s.

What am I trying to say?

Dear Christian, have nothing to do with anything that would cause the premature death of another human being.

Luke 9:54-56 And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.
