Simply Do Nothing :: by Grant Phillips

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” Edmund Burke

“He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God (emphasis mine).” (John 3: 18)

“No news is good news,” they say. Mimicking the ostrich, multitudes hide their heads in the sand and hope for the best. Maybe they think, “If I don’t think about it, it will go away.”

The simplest and easiest way to arrive in hell is to do nothing.

If you do not know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and therefore die without Him, you will stand before Him to be judged and sentenced to hell for all eternity. That is a fact.

Perhaps you were a murdering, lying, thieving scoundrel while on earth. As you stand before Him at the White Throne judgment, you will be tossed into the Lake of Fire to suffer for all eternity, not because of your sins, but because you did nothing about Jesus Christ.

By the way, hell might be compared to the county jail, and the Lake of Fire compared to prison, “the big house”. When a lost sinner dies, they go immediately to hell (the county jail). On judgment day at the White Throne Judgement, they are transferred from hell to the Lake of Fire (prison).

Perhaps you were a hardworking, loving, caring, sharing person while upon earth. As you stand before Him at the White Throne judgment, you will be tossed into the Lake of Fire to suffer for all eternity, not because you were good, but because you did nothing about Jesus Christ.

There’s going to be a lot of people suffering for all eternity in the Lake of Fire simply because they did nothing.

Now’s the time to ask, “What must I do to be saved?” Oddly enough, the Philippian jailer in Acts 16:30 asked Paul and Silas the same question. They replied in the next verse, “Believe on the Lord Jesus and you will be saved.”

Let me break it down even more (as if that isn’t simple enough). What does it mean to believe on the Lord Jesus to be saved?

Ask yourself, “Am I a sinner? Is there sin in my life?”

Ask yourself, “Do I believe that Jesus died for me and paid for my sins?”

Ask yourself, “Do I believe that He will save me, no matter how rotten I am or how good I may be?”

Ask yourself, “Do I actually trust Him enough to ask Him to save me too?”

If the answer is “Yes” to each of these questions above then just ask Him to save you and He will. From that point on you belong to Him forever, and will never stand before Him to be judged as an unbeliever. Why, because you did something about your lost condition. You put your faith, your trust, in Him and believed.

God provides to each of us enough faith to believe, but it’s up to us to use it in putting our faith in His Son Jesus to save us. If we don’t use it, we remain in our lost condition and will suffer for all eternity in hell.

Many folks today respond that God would never send anyone to hell, but in truth we choose hell by not believing in His Son Jesus. Again, all you have to do is “nothing.”

Others try real hard to be good people, but in turn they do nothing about Jesus. They will suffer in hell for eternity right along with all those who were not so good while upon earth.

Then there are those who put their faith in many gods, but unless they repent (change their mind) and rest their faith in the one and only true God, Jesus Christ, they will suffer right along with everyone else in hell for all eternity.

Do you really want to spend eternity suffering in hell (then Lake of Fire) forever, and forever? It’s real easy to get there. Just do nothing.

I can assure you that there are no unbelievers in hell. Everyone there believes in Jesus, but it’s too late. There are no atheists or agnostics in hell. All who have not put their trust in Jesus whether they are Baptists, Presbyterians, Methodists, Episcopalians, Catholics, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Church of Christ, Church of God, (surely you get the point) will be in hell and it will be too late for them also. Belonging to a religious organization does not save anyone.

The real question is not, “What organization do I belong to,” but do I belong to God through His Son? Has the grace of God saved me because I believed on His Son?

There are no religious sects, organizations, etc. in Heaven. Everyone there is simply a child of God because they put their trust in His Son Jesus. The Word of God, the Bible, makes this so very, very clear. It’s all there. Read it for yourself before it’s too late to do anything about it. Whatever you do, don’t continue to do nothing. That will guarantee a spot in hell just for you.
