It matters what we believe of God's way

A common statement made by many is, "It really does not matter what you believe as long as you are sincere in your beliefs." Others tell us that "everyone is going to heaven, so it really does not matter what belief you have."

Having conviction before God

In the first chapter of 1 Thessalonians, the Apostle Paul tells the Christians to whom he was writing that he had confidence they were chosen by God, because when the Gospel was preached to them, the result was deep conviction on their part.

The other day, I was watching the news when a political ad featuring the politician came across my TV screen. He told what he believed and what he would do if elected. Immediately, I thought, "I wonder if his past voting record in politics mirrored what he was saying."
