Repent! For the Kingdom of God is nigh!
So was the cry of many a preacher from yesteryear. More often today preachers rightly focus on a loving God ofmercy, acceptance and forgiveness . So, did those old time preachers get itwrong with their message of repentance and punishment? In the Gospels Jesus speaks about living God-centred lives as the right way. There are clear references to eternal life for some, but not all. Something as important as this is surely worthwhile looking into and your local church will be happy to help you with any questions.
