Am I living a fairy tale?

I received an interesting comment the other day. I was not sure at first what I would do.I would either delete it all together, respond to it or just leave it alone. Well, by the time you are reading this post the comment may be deleted. But, it sure gave me something to write about.

The comment was this "Ginger, you are afraid to die so you believe in fairy tales." First I was glad this person pointed this out to me because I had no idea I was afraid to die!

I am assuming he was referring to my faith in Jesus Christ. Well, the last I knew the Bible was not written by Mother Goose. It was written by my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and He is no Pinocchio by any means. He is the Alpha and Omega the Beginning and the End.

Living a fairy tale...maybe this person didn't understand that my God is not a genie. Maybe he didn't realize that Jesus died upon that old rugged cross for his sins as much as my own. Maybe he didn't realize that Jesus Christ arose three days later and is living and will return again to take the Christians away.

This faith, my friend, will not be found in a book of nursery rhymes. This is not Jack and the beanstalk. This, my friend, is a huge decision that you should not take lightly. The question is... are you afraid to die? Because if you are lost and are not saved by the blood of Jesus Christ... I tell you, then you should be afraid to die.

I wish not to debate on this subject. I only wished to point out the one and only way to get to Heaven. And that is to confess that you are a sinner and only Jesus Christ can save you from your sins. Ask Him to forgive you and for Him to come and live in your heart. And that, my friend, is no fairy tale!
