“He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”
THE IGNORANCE OF UNBELIEF
Often, the workers of iniquity pass down their unbelief from generation to generation as if it is some carefully-guarded treasure.
But what they, in their ignorance, are really passing along (pretending it is super-secret, hidden knowledge) is condemnation and destruction.
Destruction and condemnation are perfectly fine for all those who willingly choose it, but it boggles the mind that, in their ignorance and pride, a parent would purposely pass down perdition to his children.
“He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.”
Because of this careful teaching of unbelief, it may seem as if some are beyond the hope of saving. But that is not true: no one is beyond the reach of Almighty God.
“And they that heard it said, Who then can be saved? And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.”
It is not too late to turn from destruction.
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
—2 Corinthians 4:3
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
