Those who live their lives politically correct tell us we must respect everyone's religious beliefs, they are wrong, deadly wrong, acknowledge yes, respect no.
These political correct priests fill the pulpits in many denominations, they fill the halls of our government, they fill the educator's role, the daily news, and talk show hosts, and they fill the hearts of ordinary people all across this land.
Over the years I have learned and am still learning to acknowledge everyone's beliefs, but respect no, never! I will love them no matter what they choose, and be there for them always but I can not respect anyone's decision to die separated from God, for that is foolishness.
Jesus said I am the Way, The Truth and the Life, No One comes to the Father except by Me. John 14:6...
Mankind hates this about Christ because we are proud and sinful we have no way to heaven without Him.
If you choose to reject Jesus, that is your choice, and I will acknowledge your choice and lack of belief, but I can never respect your choice, ever.
That would be ludicrous on my part, to accept for you have condemned yourself to an eternity in hell, away from God!
Charles Spurgeon said this” If sinners be damned, at least let them leap to Hell over our dead bodies. And if they perish, let them perish with our arms wrapped about their knees, imploring them to stay. If Hell must be filled, let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go unwarned and unprayed for.”
Time here on earth is temporary, the devil is at work because he knows his time is short, pride, confusion, misdirection, and busyness keep people from surrendering to Christ.
We must be about our Father's business, speaking the truth out of love, and leaving the results up to God, we can save no one, but we can share with them the truth of God's word, the love He gives freely and the only way to heaven.
God's word says this:
John 3:16“For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. 18 Anyone who believes in Him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the One and Only Son of God.
“Now I want to remind you, although you came to know all these things once and for all, that Jesus saved a people out of Egypt and later destroyed those who did not believe; and the angels who did not keep their own position but abandoned their proper dwelling, he has kept in eternal chains in deep darkness for the judgment on the great day. Likewise, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns committed sexual immorality and perversions, and serve as an example by undergoing the punishment of eternal fire. In the same way these people — relying on their dreams — defile their flesh, reject authority, and slander glorious ones. Yet when Michael the archangel was disputing with the devil in an argument about Moses’s body, he did not dare utter a slanderous condemnation against him but said, “The Lord rebuke you!” But these people blaspheme anything they do not understand. And what they do understand by instinct — like irrational animals — by these things they are destroyed. Woe to them! For they have gone the way of Cain, have plunged into Balaam’s error for profit, and have perished in Korah’s rebellion. These people are dangerous reefs at your love feasts as they eat with you without reverence. They are shepherds who only look after themselves. They are waterless clouds carried along by winds; trees in late autumn — fruitless, twice dead and uprooted. They are wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shameful deeds; wandering stars for whom the blackness of darkness is reserved forever. It was about these that Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied: “Look! The Lord comes with tens of thousands of his holy ones to execute judgment on all and to convict all the ungodly concerning all the ungodly acts that they have done in an ungodly way, and concerning all the harsh things ungodly sinners have said against him.” These people are discontented grumblers, living according to their desires; their mouths utter arrogant words, flattering people for their own advantage. But you, dear friends, remember what was predicted by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ. They told you, “In the end time there will be scoffers living according to their own ungodly desires.” These people create divisions and are worldly, not having the Spirit. But you, dear friends, as you build yourselves up in your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God, waiting expectantly for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ for eternal life. Have mercy on those who waver; save others by snatching them from the fire; have mercy on others but with fear, hating even the garment defiled by the flesh. Now to him who is able to protect you from stumbling and to make you stand in the presence of his glory, without blemish and with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, power, and authority before all time, now and forever. Amen.”
