Second death

More from the book, ‘Whole Bible Christianity.’

Some object to the permanency of the second death. They worry about the demise of a loved one who did not seem to live life for God or ‘accept Jesus as Lord and savior.’ They prefer a Catholic-like ‘purgatory’ which will hopefully end someday. But I cannot find this concept in the Word…

I’ll let you in on a little secret. This life IS purgatory. We are between heaven and hell, working out our salvation with fear and trembling. We have to decide now whom we will serve, and where we will end up living forever. Even if we don’t decide, we still have made a decision.
