WHAT’S WORSE?

(Here is an article by C.W. Fisk in his booklet "From Methods and Mechanics")
  • What is worse, one who does not believe in God or one who believes in Him but does not serve Him?
  • What is worse, one who does not believe the Bible or one who says he believes it but does not read it?
  • What is worse, one who does not believe in prayer or one who says God answers prayer but never takes time to pray?
  • What is worse, one who does not believe in the church or one who believes but never attends regularly?
  • What is worse, one who says he does not believe there is a hell or one who says there is a Hell and yet never goes soul winning to try and win someone to keep them from going to Hell?
  • What is worse, one who says that it’s foolish to go to Sunday School and church or one who says that you ought to go to Sunday School and church, but never visits his absentees to be sure they’re faithful to class?

You answer these questions.

No doubt about it, the atheist who dies without God will burn in Hell. By the same token, the Christian who knew his responsibility and failed to do it will also give an account to the Lord. The Scripture states in Luke 12:48b, “For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required”. Sometimes I wonder if in the sight of God the cold-hearted and backslidden Christian might be just as big a disappointment as the atheist. It is really hard to say which might be worse in the sight of Almighty God. Won’t you do your best for Jesus this week?
