April 21--Escaping Hell, Continued

Here's the back of the "GET OUT OF HELL FREE" card. (See the April 20 post for the front view.) The text of "the fine print" is below for your ease of reading.

"Would it be nice if avoiding Hell were as simple as having a card like this? Many religions teach that if you do enough good, say enough prayers or follow enough rules that you will escape Hell when you die and go to Heaven. The Bible teaches that God hates these types of religions (Amos 5:21, Hebrews 10:11-14) and that no one is good (Romans 3:23, John 3:19, John 7:7). It is appointed once to die and then the judgment. (Hebrews 9:27) Let's take a quick test based on God's standard, The Ten Commandments (John 8:47, John 9:41). Ever lied? Stolen? Hated, which Jesus calls murder? Lusted, which Jesus called adultery? Would you be innocent or guilty? Would God send you to Heaven or Hell? Can you get out to Hell for free? God is perfectly just. He must punish sin. The good news is that Jesus chose to receive on Himself the punishment that justly belonged to you. Jesus being fully God and fully man became the only acceptable sacrifice for sin. He lived a perfect life, then died on the cross and rose from the dead. Repent of your sins and trust in Jesus for salvation (Mark 1:15). Only Jesus can save you from Hell! (John 3:17)
    I must admit that the website name "AfterLifeCatalog" scares me more than "Hell." I'll stay clear of that one!
