Kingdom People posted this powerful clip from the television program, ER. The scene is a man dying of cancer speaking to a well-intentioned, feel- good- let's- ask- questions chaplain. Exasperated, the man exclaims at one point, "I need answers! I want a real chaplain who believes in a real God and a real hell....I want someone to look me in the eye and tell me how to find forgiveness because I'm running out of time."
These quasi intellectual games of relativism are all fun and games until we are on our deathbed facing what comes next. How do we face it?
"Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners..." (1 Tim. 1:15)."
This is what makes Christianity unique. Instead of turning us inward to look for answers in our personal black holes, Christianity points us away from ourselves and to the Lord Jesus. He in a class all by himself. He alone can give comfort and courage in the face of death because death no longer has the last word.
To all other to all other "answers," there is only one thing to say: "Get out! Get out!!! GET OUT!!!
