11-8-2017 No Safe Worship

“There were present at that season some who told Him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And Jesus answered and said to them, ‘Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish’” (Luke 13:1-3 NKJV). Pilate’s killing of worshipers showed that there is no guaranteed time or place when people can’t die! Paul later said, “we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him” (2 Corinthians 5:20-21 NKJV). To both Jews and Gentiles, Paul preached, “repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ” (Acts 20:21 NKJV).
