【問得好】為何不信耶穌的後果很嚴重?

 

有些人說信耶穌是個人的選擇﹐不信耶穌好像不相信一個政府或人一樣﹐並沒有甚麼大問題。以上的說法對嗎?請看下面的解答。

耶穌解決人罪的問題

人不看重要不要信耶穌﹐其實是因為他們不明白耶穌為甚麼要到世間來﹐聖經說:「基督耶穌降世,為要拯救罪人,這話是可信的,是十分可佩服的。」(提摩太前書1:15)如果人沒有罪的話﹐人就不需要信耶穌﹐那麼試問誰沒有罪呢?聖經所說的罪﹐不是單指地上犯法的罪如殺人放火、姦淫擄掠、暴力傷人等﹐聖經指出人逞著心裡的情慾行各樣污穢的事都是罪﹐諸如:「裝滿了各樣不義,邪惡﹑貪心﹑惡毒(或作陰毒)﹔滿心是嫉妒﹑兇殺﹑爭競﹑詭詐﹑毒恨。又是讒毀的﹑背後說人的﹑怨恨神的﹑凌辱人的﹑傲慢的﹑自誇的﹑捏造惡事的﹑違背父母的﹑冥頑不靈的﹑不守信用的﹑無親情的﹑不憐憫人的。」(羅馬書1:29-31)

不單是行出來的過犯﹐耶穌說:「從人裡面出來的,那纔能污穢人。因為從裡面,就是從人心裡,發出惡念﹑淫亂﹑偷盜﹑兇殺﹑姦淫﹑貪婪﹑邪惡﹑詭詐﹑放蕩﹑嫉妒﹑毀謗﹑驕傲﹑狂妄。這一切的惡,都是從裡面出來,且能污穢人。」(馬可福音7:20-23)人被種種不同的過犯罪惡所捆綁﹐自知不能勝過﹐就好像信耶穌前的保羅說:「我也知道,在我裡頭,就是我肉體之中,沒有良善,因為立志為善由得我,只是行出來由不得我。故此,我所願意的善,我反不作,我所不願意的惡,我倒去作。若我去作所不願意作的,就不是我作的,乃是住在我裡頭的罪作的。」(羅馬書7:18-20)

人既然不能勝過罪惡﹐如今有耶穌來解決我們的罪﹐祂來要給我們一個新的生命﹐聖經說:「若有人在基督裡,他就是新造的人,舊事已過,都變成新的了。」(哥林多後書5:17)過去人活在罪中或多或少(其實是不少的)不能不犯罪﹐但信耶穌後原來可以不犯罪﹐人可以真正的行善﹐以善勝惡﹐甚至可以愛仇敵、饒恕過往我們所不能饒恕的人。這樣奇妙的恩典﹐人選擇不信耶穌﹐豈不在地上因罪過繼續受苦嗎?

耶穌拯救人免下地獄

人不單有罪過﹐將來更要面對 神的審判﹐ 神的審判是最公義的、最徹底的﹐意思指連人心所想過要行的種種污濊惡念都要被揭露及審查。耶穌說:「凡人所說的閒話,當審判的日子,必要句句供出來。」(馬太福音12:36)因為天堂是完全聖潔的﹐即使人有一點罪過都不能到那裡去﹐人是注定要下地獄的。然而﹐耶穌來成為人代罪的羔羊﹐祂擔當了世人的罪過﹐代替人因罪而受的刑罰被釘死在十架上﹐使凡信靠祂的人不再被定罪。聖經說:「如今那些在基督耶穌裡的,就不定罪了。」(羅馬書8:1)耶穌使人免去 神審判人的憤怒﹐羅馬書5:9-10說:「現在我們既靠著祂(耶穌)的血稱義,就更要藉著祂免去 神的忿怒。因為我們作仇敵(敵對 神)的時候,且藉著 神兒子的死,得與 神和好,既已和好,就更要因祂的生得救了。」

地獄是不好受的﹐是世人都不願意去﹐也是世界上所有宗教希望人不要去的地方。耶穌說:「在那裡蟲是不死的,火是不滅的。」(馬可福音9:48)地獄是將來魔鬼要去的地方﹐人如果下地獄就要永遠與牠在一起受苦﹐那是很可怕的事。然而耶穌到世上來施行拯救﹐人所有的罪過都可以因著信靠祂得到赦免、不用下地獄去﹐如果不信耶穌﹐後果豈不是很嚴重嗎?

耶穌帶給人盼望

聖經說︰「按著定命,人人都有一死」(希伯來書9:27)。人面對死亡是最絕望的﹐因為人擁有的一切諸如金銀珠實、榮譽地位、成功權勢、財產物質﹐甚至我們所愛的人(或者愛我們的人)﹐無論是甚麼都會失去﹐一切都變成虛空。並且﹐死亡不會等人衰老、七老八十才臨到﹐乃是隨時會臨到﹐一個過濾性的病毒、一個意外就可奪去人的性命﹐那時人還有甚麼盼望?怪不得人都會怕死﹐特別怕不知道往哪裡去﹐尤其怕想到人面對死的絕望。然而感謝耶穌﹐祂說:「我實實在在的告訴你們,信的人有永生。」(約翰福音6:47)又說:「復活在我,生命也在我,信我的人,雖然死了,也必復活。凡活著信我的人,必永遠不死。」(約翰福音11:25-26)信耶穌的人不單不用下地獄﹐並且還有永生﹐人可以擁有一個永遠與 神同在的豐盛生命﹐即使死了也肯定有復活的盼望。

耶穌賜下人救恩

聖經希伯來書2:3說:「我們若忽略這麼大的救恩,怎能逃罪呢?!」耶穌帶給人的是一個極偉大的救恩﹐因為祂承擔了世人所犯一切的罪被釘死在十架上﹐顯明了祂無比的愛。並且﹐祂被釘後第三天從死裡復活﹐顯明祂就那一位能拯救人脫離死亡的真神﹐而全界再找不到有一位救主像祂。如今﹐祂所要求的是很簡單的回應﹐人只要誠心認罪悔改去接受祂為救主﹐不用付上任何行為上的代價﹐白白可以得到祂所賜的永生。人如果不信耶穌他們可以相信誰?他們能找到另一位真的能救人的真神嗎?不能。

使徒約翰得到主的啟示說:「我又看見死了的人,無論大小,都站在寶座前,案卷展開了,並且另有一卷展開,就是生命冊,死了的人都憑著這些案卷所記載的,照他們所行的受審判。」(啟示錄20:12)又說:「若有人名字沒記在生命冊上,他就被扔在火湖裡。」(啟示錄20:15)「凡不潔淨的,並那行可憎與虛謊之事的,總不得進那城(指天堂),只有名字寫在羔羊生命冊上的纔得進去。」(啟示錄21:27)

親愛的朋友﹐生命冊中有你的名字嗎?耶穌快要再降臨來審判全世界﹐人是擔當不起祂審判的﹐聖經說:「凡接待祂(耶穌)的,就是信名祂的人,祂就賜他們權柄,作 神的兒女。」(約翰福音1:12)請快來接受耶穌成為你個人的救主﹐像我們基督徒一樣﹐成為 神的兒女將來就可以回天家!
