You can ignore God’s warnings; you can refuse his blessings; you can reject all his wondrous love, but you can’t go to heaven doing so.
You can believe any doctrine you choose; you can belong to the church of your choice; you can worship God as you please, but you can’t please God doing so (2 Jno. 9; Mt. 15:9,13; Rom. 10:1).
It seems that Satan has done a remarkable job of convincing the people that their religion is a matter of their choice, not God’s; that it is a matter of their being pleased.by Grover Stevens
