THE WAY OF DEATH
There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.
1. DO NOT BE SURPRISED
We should not be surprised at the ways of sinners – and their machinations to steal, kill and destroy.
The devil comes to steal, kill and destroy.
2. THE WAY OF SIN IS THE WAY OF DEATH
Sin has brought the penalty of death to all mankind.
Therefore death is a constant companion to us all – and weaves its insidious destruction into our lives.
3. THE WAY OF DEATH SEEMS RIGHT TO SINNERS
Sin is insanity. It is flawed thinking – always producing death in some form.
Sadly this way of thinking seems right to those who reject the way of life in Christ.
Mankind can justify death in any form when it is convenient for them.
4. THE WAY OF DEATH IS SIN
SIN – means – Self Interest Now.
SIN – denies an eternity for all.
SIN – insists that life is for the now.
SIN – declares its human rights
SIN – sinners govern for sinners
SIN – wars against the righteous
SIN – always destroys its followers
SIN – must be judged by God
5. THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE
Our mandate is not to protest the way of death – which seems right to all sinners.
Our commission is to preach the good news of a saviour – from the curse of death – Jesus Christ – who alone can rescue those who have lost their way.
Eternal life in Christ – destroys the law of sin and death.
