As it is in heaven…or hell

What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees…For you cross land and sea to make one convert, and then you turn that person into twice the child of hell you yourselves are! – Jesus. Matt 23:15

Jesus went off on members of the Jewish religious leadership in this chapter. Apparently He didn’t think making converts was enough. The Jewish leadership had developed a system that turned some converts into children of hell, and consequently sentenced others the sort of constant condemnation that equates to hell on earth. What we are saved to is as important as what we are saved from.

Lord, make Your church heaven on earth.
