St Paul's Letters
St Paul wrote numerous letters to the various churches
that he helped to establish throughout early Christendom.
He aimed to encourage fellow believers in the faith, as
well as to warn them of the need for being ever watchful.
6:23 - For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God
is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Faced with these two options, why would anyone hesitate
to accept God's wonderful free gift to humankind? See,
for example, 'Love Is The Light' by Horace Andy and Big Youth,
and 'Johnny Was' by Bob Marley.
6:7 - Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever
a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
None can deny this eternal truth. ... See, for example, 'Dreadlocks In Moonlight' by Lee 'Scratch' Perry.
Thessalonians 5:2 - For yourselves know perfectly that
the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
Many have sought throughout history to determine a date
for the Lord's return, but the fact remains that he will
come when least expected. All we can be certain of is
that he will return. We may look forward to that day with
both dread apprehension and joy. See, for example, 'Knock Knock' by IJahman.
