I want to continue with the thought from yesterday, using an article from Worldnetdaily.
The designers of the Titanic were so sure that it couldn’t sink that they made no provision for such a disaster. They had so much faith in themselves and their design of the ocean liner, that they hardly gave the need for lifeboats a second thought.
The overconfidence of the Titanic designers wasn’t amendable. They couldn’t fix the problem of the sinking ship after it struck the iceberg. It was too late because there was no second chance. When they called for help, none came.
Imagine being on the Southampton dock back on April 10, 1912, knowing that five days later the unsinkable Titanic would sink like a rock. It would go to the bottom of the icy ocean, taking with it 1,502 precious human lives.
If you had foreknowledge of the disaster, what would you say to the passengers as they excitedly boarded the ship? You couldn’t remain silent.
Such is the plight of the Christian. We can’t remain silent because we know what the future holds.
There is sure hope for those who humble themselves in this life, repent and trust alone in Jesus, but once we sink into the icy waters of death, there’s no second chance.
If we die in our sins, we will get justice from a holy Creator, and there isn’t a hope in hell.
Jesus said, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.” Mark 16:15
“Condemned” means just what it says, and “saved” means what it says.
