A wise man once said, “What good is it to have everything you want and then you die?” Does that sound familiar? More importantly, can you agree with that statement? If so, it is very likely that you will be victorious in “The Challenge of Your Life.” Welcome to Literal Gospel, hosted by Elders Rod and Geneva. We literally do not want you to die, because someone has already died in your place.
The opening quote is located in the Bible @ Matthew 16:26. This profound statement does not require religious belief, only good common sense and a honest heart. Other variations of this statement read; “And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?” (New Living Translation, 2007); “What good will it do for people to win the whole world and lose their lives? Or what will a person give in exchange for life?” (God’s Word Translation, 1995). No matter how it is said, what can you do about it? How can people not lose their lives?
Suppose physical longevity required more than good nutrition and exercise? I owe it to myself to investigate whatever elements are necessary to sustain my body for as long as possible. Literal Gospel is a collaborative site where everyone can share their views on the value of life, and feel free to share questions and answers on the subject that touches us all. Staying alive!
The Gospel is literally filled with profound statements which have perplexed civilization since the days of antiquity until the present. Without a doubt, the ability to discern the difference between parables and commandments in the scriptures, is a matter of life or death. Simply put, the missing element in obtaining physical longevity, is the ability to understand the instruction manual of life aka The Bible.
Jesus Christ lived a life adorned with miracles and astounding events. He clearly states that the power of living life without death is hidden within the words he left behind. Do you suppose this power is the key to physical immortality, here and now? What does John 8:51 mean to you? Since Jesus never lied or exaggerated, do you suppose he meant what he said in John 8:51 literally? We do!
