Scripture: Matthew 7:13-14, Mark 10:15, John 14:6
Just as there are decisions that impact your life on earth, what about the decisions that impact your life in eternity? We all have to face those decisions, because there is a 100% mortality rate in America. That is, 1 out of 1 people die. The question is not "if" you are going to die, the question is, "when you are going to die"? The next question is, where are you going to spend eternity? In this message, Dr. Merritt explains how we can ensure our eternal future will be with Christ in heaven.
"The most dangerous intersection in the universe is where Religion Avenue intersects Good Works Boulevard. Most people believe that either one or the other or both is the only gate you need to enter and the only road you need to travel to get to heaven. Those roads are paved with good intentions but they lead to a dead end of destruction." --Dr. Merritt
