I constantly hear people saying things which don’t make sense when held up together.
They will say someone is dead and then say he is in heaven or in hell. I find this type of statements to appear totally contradictory or at least confusing.
IF the wages of sin is DEATH, then how can sinners be alive after they die?
IF the gift of God is LIFE, how or why do the wicked get to be immortal as well?
Am I as confused as everyone else?
I hope the following Bible verses will help to clarify the situation and eliminate the mass of confusion we hear every day.
I believe: God is Light and without HIM there is no light at all
KJV 1 John 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
1 John 2:25 KJV And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
God is immortal.
1 Timothy 1:17 KJV: Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
KJV 1 Timothy 6:16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.
We seek immortality and eternal life.
KJV Romans 2:7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:
KJV 2 Timothy 1:10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:
1 Cor 15:53-54 KJV: 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
in the world to come.
KJV Mark 10:30 But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
Without eternal life we will perish.
KJV John 3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
Joh 5:39-40 KJV Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. 40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
Eternal life comes to believers at the resurrection.
