While it may seem that God's goodness will
cause Him to overlook your sins, the opposite
is actually true. Perhaps the following illustration
will add some clarity: Imagine you're standing
before a judge, guilty of multiple crimes. The
judge is about to pass sentence when he asks,
"Do you have anything to say for yourself?"
You stand up, look the judge in the eye and say,
"Yes Your Honor, I believe that you're a
good man... and because you're good, you will
let me go." The judge will probably say something
like, "Well, you're right about one thing...
I am a good man. And it's because I'm good that
I'm going to see that you are punished for your
crimes." The very thing you are counting
on to save you on the Day of Judgment -- namely
God's goodness -- is going to be the very thing
that will see to it that justice is done. Because
God is so good He will make sure that
every murderer, rapist and thief receives justice...
but He won't stop there. He will also make sure
every liar, blasphemer, and adulterer is punished.
While this is something that is extremely tragic
and far from God's ultimate desire for any person,
the Bible is clear that the place of punishment
for those who do not turn from their sins is Hell.
the fact that you're headed for Hell concern you?
