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.

Wide and Narrow Roads

Many people, when they die, will stand before Jesus and say:

Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles? - Matthew 7:22

And Jesus will say to them:

I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness. - Matthew 7:23

Get your Bible out and read Matthew 7:21-23. These are some of the most frightening verses in the Bible.

They describe people who believe with all their heart that they are saved. They have no doubt that they know Jesus and they've done many great things that prove this is true. Put Jesus says, 'Depart from me...' He doesn't know them.

Are you truly trusting Jesus? Scripture says to examine yourself to see if you are in the faith (2 Corinthians 13:5). Have you done that?

Do you read your Bible regularly? Do you fear false teaching? Are you growing in your obedience to God? Are you growing in your understanding of what God wants? Do you regularly share the good news about Jesus with others?
