    The Tragic of Sincerity

    A person could die, sincere in heart his devotion to God. But a person could die sincerely wrong of what he believes with regards to God. What happen to him {the Pope} is a tragic. Big one! Because he is a leader.

    The Bible says --
    Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

    Common denominator of RICH and POOR -- Death!... All of us will die later or sooner. Then after it JUDGMENT. All of us will face God later or sooner.

    The Bible says -- Revelation 20:11-15
    And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. (12) And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. (13) And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. (14) And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (15) And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

    The Question -- Do you trust that your GOOD WORKS will God let you in into His kingdom? Then start now weighing your GOOD WORKS against your BAD WORKS. Which one is much heavier?

    WAIT! I have to define our BAD WORKS {sin}. The Bible says --
    Revelation 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

    You might not have done all these bad things, but the last one is very familiar to all of us. Now if you have done one of these then all your GOOD WORKS is INVALID. Because there's no amount of good works could help us to avoid the SECOND DEATH.

    But read this --
    Hebrews 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

    Christ died for us so that we might have salvation through him. He was offered to bear the sins of many, that means including you and me and even the pope. Even him needs salvation from Christ. Salvation doesn't comes from the pope nor the church nor from our good works. Salvation only comes from our Lord Jesus Christ. Through Him and by Him. FAITH ALONE in CHRIST ALONE.

    Forgiveness of sins doesn't come from man {pope}. Forgiveness only comes from God. NO ONE CAN MEDIATE to us for God but ONLY one - CHRIST! -- 1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

    Now maybe you are a member of a Baptist Church, but only a member haven't experienced the forgiveness coming from God. You might be sincere with your religion. But don't end sincerely wrong all about it. 2 Peter 1:10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

    always in [​IMG] in Christ,
