The Earth Will Get A Lot Hotter

Yes, the earth will get hotter, but this isn't man-made global warming. It's called the faint sun paradox.

What is that?

If the sun is billions of years old, it should be a lot hotter. Our sun is too faint! This is what happens: as the sun ages its composition changes as the result of nuclear reactions and the sun gets hotter. Based on this fact, 3.5 billion years ago, when life was supposedly getting started on earth, based on the current condition of the sun, the sun would have been putting out much less radiation. That means the earth would have been 31 degrees cooler and completely frozen. But there's no evidence of this. None at all. So the earth must have be warm in the past, about the same temperature as today. But if that's true about the past, the sun (and as a result the earth) should be much hotter today. But it isn't. That's the faint sun paradox.

Romans Road

You will exist forever. The question is, where? Disobeying God is the road to death, and we have all disobeyed God:

For all have sinned [disobeyed God] and fall short of the glory of God. - Romans 3:23

The consequence of sin is death. You will exist experiencing death forever.

For the wages of sin is death... - Romans 6:23a

But there is GOOD News! You can have life!

...but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. - Romans 6:23b

God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. - Romans 5:8

Instead of our experiencing death forever, Christ died in our place. Repent (turn away from disobeying God), believe this, trusting that Jesus truly did die in your place.

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. - Romans 5:1
