When asked, "What is the most important thing you would like to say to someone who would listen to you?", he replied:
That we must come to recognize that the Bible is God speaking to us. Once this recognition is made we then take very serious what God tells us when He says that the wages of sin is death and this death, which is the 2nd death, is described as spending an eternity in hell. But God has also provided a way of escape through Jesus Christ our Lord. As we continue to read the Bible we discover that it has much more to say about the Lord Jesus Christ and how He is the only way out of this awful predicament.
Nehemiah 8:8 So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading.
