FROM THE BARREL OF MY PEN
By Gonzalo “Jun” Policarpio


GOD’S DEAL WITH THE SINNERS

Some people with problems think that by killing themselves or committing suicide would be the end of their miserable life. Speaking as a Christian, I believe that is not the case.

Christians believe there’s life after death as we know it. That is the mystery of Christianity: death gives way to life.

This present life as Christians know it is just a preparation to enter another world after our last breath: either to go to Heaven with God, the Creator, or to hell with Satan, the destroyer.

The celebration of the Holy Week, Good Friday and Easter Sunday, sends out the basic doctrine of Christianity written in the Bible in three-day events about Jesus Christ: His death at the cross, His burial, and His resurrection.

With Christ’s death, the promise of salvation from eternal death is offered to believers.

With Christ’s burial, the promise of Holy Spirit baptism comes to those who accept.

With Christ’s resurrection, the promise of eternal life with God in Heaven makes real the Blessed Hope when Christ returns again to redeem the dead and the living believers to live forever.

Fellow human beings, who would not want that kind of God’s deal in exchange of Faith in his Only Begotten Son, Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ?


End
