"Do you think that Christians
are better than non-Christians?"
The Christian is no better
than a non-Christian, but he is infinitely better off.
It is like two men on a plane, one of whom is wearing
a parachute while the other is not. Neither is better
than the other, but the man with the parachute is certainly
better off than the man who is not wearing a parachute.
The difference will be seen when they jump from the
plane at 20,000 feet.
Jesus warned that if we
"jump" into death without Him, we would perish.
Even harsher than the law of gravity is the Law of an
infinitely holy and just Creator. Scripture states that
sinners are God’s enemy (Romans 5:10) and that
"it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of
the living God (Hebrews 10:31).
