“All roads lead to the judgement seat of Christ.”
Singer Keith Green
Does it matter what a person believes, as long as they sincerely believe it? One popular answer to this question is, “No.” Religion, they claim, is man’s attempt to find peace with God and whatever works for you, is perfectly acceptable. Some even claim that any attempt to influence someone about the truthfulness of one religion or pointing out the error of another, is immoral.
Is this true? Is it wrong to seek to convert someone? Are all religions equal?
Keith Green addresses this question with a simple reminder that at the end of this life, everyone finds him or herself standing before Christ. The Bible tells us we are accountable for the choices we make in life and most importantly, our choice to accept or reject Jesus.
If life is only understood in light of this temporary world, then one might claim that all religions are equal. However, in light of eternity, this claim falls flat. The Scriptures remind us: “it is appointed for people to die once — and after this, judgement” (Heb 9:27)
Keith Green also reminds us that, “This generation of Christians is responsible for this generation of souls.”
My God in heaven, you are holy and merciful. Thank you that, in Christ you have forgiven my sins. Lead me to others who are wandering in the darkness so I can point them to the light that is in Christ.
