Choose your analogy. Pick any one of them. It's clear at this time- all too many people around me are ignoring the obvious: We are all going to die one day. Not exactly the type of sentiment Hallmark cards are made of.
Truth is, it is utterly unwise to ignore the fact we are created as eternal beings- and that this life is only an entryway to the next. If you've read the blog for awhile, you know where I stand. That baby Jesus is God in the flesh, came to pay the price for our sin which we can't pay. Everyone will have to answer His question: "Who do you say that I am?" Is He God and have you given your life to Him? Other ways lead to eternal death. Only Jesus leads to life.
