People called Abraham Lincoln a country bumpkin, but he went on to become one of our most respected presidents.

We smile at the crowd's failure to appreciate something new or different. But being wrong can be a serious problem when it comes to our relationship to God. Too much is at stake.

Because you and I have sinned against God and man, we deserve God's punishment. The Bible says that "the wages of sin is death," eternal separation from God (Romans 6:23a).

But God offers us "eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23b). "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).

You can be wrong about many things, but you dare not be wrong about Christ. Through faith in Him you can be saved just as you are. Your sins can be forgiven and the peace of God can fill your life: "As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name" (John 1:12).

Whom will you choose? The crowd or Christ?

Nutzerbericht  - Teen Girl Reader - Christianbook.com

This book ends the series. A hilarious must-read just like the other two. In this one, Fergus that old Indian drives the Skinner's auto car into the front window of the resturant because he was trying to miss a big white goose, and this display causes more and more men to come eat there. Very good. Vollständige Rezension lesen
