Hebrews 9:27King James Version (KJV)
27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
There are many religions in the world today and some of them have the concept of reincarnation as a central part of their doctrine. For those of you who don’t know anything about reincarnation it is the belief that a person is judged by his or her actions on the earth and then, after death, they return to earth. Here’s the tricky part, if they did not lead a “good” life a person can come back as a frog, a kangaroo, a leper, or a blind person. Hindu’s in India believe this and this has led to the caste system which are the Brahmans, who are the elites at the top and at the bottom the untouchables. All of this is based on the idea of reincarnation.
The only way out of this seemingly endless cycle of birth and death is to obtain enlightenment. To obtain enlightenment requires a guru and then years of meditation and service to the guru, to break out of the bondage of endless birth and death.
Contrast this to Christianity which tells us unequivocally: and it is appointed unto men once to die but after this the judgment.
There is disparity of thought here and both concepts can not be correct. Here’s something to consider, in Hinduism the practitioner of this religion must somehow do enough good works in order to be deemed worthy to escape the cycle of reincarnation. This begs the question, who is keeping track of everyone on the planet and what kind of measuring system is used? Then there’s the works-trip dynamic to this as each person must somehow overcome the deeds of the flesh and transcend the fleshly/earthly desires.
Contrast this to Christianity which tells us that through Christ’s blood and work on the cross we have eternal life, not through works lest any man boast.
In other words salvation comes through faith in Jesus not good works. Salvation is through our belief in He who was sent, JESUS and died in our place.
When we come to Him and put our trust and faith in Him, as well as confess our sins and our need for a redeemer, we receive the promise of eternal life. It’s that simple. We are born and then the judgement.
Do you know Him?
If you think you know Him but you don’t know Him then, you don’t know Him.
He stands at the door of your heart and knocks. He will not enter until you invite Him in. He loves you. Open the door and receive the free gift of eternal life…
The perfect gift for someone you love…

Today’s Headlines or Ancient Events?
Sometimes it’s difficult to tell the difference between events prophesied in the pages of the Bible and the headlines we read in today’s newspapers and see on the TV screens. With rare insight and remarkable clarity, L.A. Marzulli rips the headlines off today’s news and joins them with those ancient prophetic texts, providing instruction and enlightenment for people trying to make sense of a world that seems to be spiraling out of control.
For years, L.A. has shared some of his best and most penetrating work each Sunday with his “Sunday Go To Meeting Bun.” This book is a compilation of the “best-of-the-best,” winnowed from his years of Sunday “Buns.”
As you pour through the pages of this book, you’ll soon discover that you will want more – so you will be excited to know that this is just Volume 1.
This is a book you will want to read and then share with others, sparking discussions and encouraging new perspectives on the events taking place in the world around us.
