Letter: Repent before it’s too late

After creating mankind God gave us some suggestions to live by. Abe Lincoln said of our Bible, “… it is the best gift God has given men. … But for it, we could not know right from wrong.”

Those that claim our Bibles are outdated is not a defense against an eternal God. What use does the Lord have for a clock or calendar? In his realm his thoughts were just penned. Our Constitution, too, has older language, but its theme of freedom remains unchanged.

The Dec. 27, 1982, issue of Newsweek claimed: “Historians are discovering that the Bible perhaps more than the Constitution is our founding document.” Some people reject our Founding Fathers as racist and our Father God as false. We have become a nation of falsehoods, perverse fads, idol worship and lots of crime.

There is but one way out of this eternal fall — 1st John 2:21 and 22 “…no lie comes from the truth. Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ.” On bended knee at our judgment, we will all know Jesus is the son of God. We will proclaim it, but it will be too late to repent.
