Shall Not Perish 21 Apr 08

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16 (NIV)

In John 3:16 and following, Jesus made it clear that the result of not believing in Him was something less than eternal life. He called it perishing or being “condemned”. What exactly does that mean? Jesus died to rescue us from something beyond the grave, but what is it? What can a person who does not respond to Jesus’ words expect to find when they pass from this life to the next? Join us as we address this difficult question.
