I was scrolling through a thread and noticed the comment made that someone "got saved" because they knew they needed Jesus or they were going to hell. How do you guys respond to something like that? I get kind of a wierd feeling that maybe they are missing something. When you decide to follow Jesus, are you doing it to aviod hell, or because you realize you were created to be in relationship with the Creator? There is more to it, such as glorifying God with your life, having a truly abundant life because of Jesus, needing forgivenness for your sins from God, etc. I get that. However, I wonder if we are sending the wrong message if the first thing we tell people is that they need Jesus so they won't go to hell. It's as if that is all Christianity offers people; a ticket out of hell. Any thoughts?
