there are two ways to live
- Reject the ruler - God
- Try to run our life our own way
- Condemned by God
- Facing death & judgement
We can continue in our rebellion against God, and try to run our lives our own way without him. Sadly, this is the option that many people persist in.
The end result is that God gives us what we ask for and deserve. He condemns us for our rejection of his rightful rule over our lives. We not only have to put up with the messy consequences of rejecting God here and now, but we face the dreadful prospect of an eternity of separation from him, without life or love or relationship.
