We where all shocked and saddened by the news of the acts of evil done in Nice France. How can one man decide to do something so evil? But this is not the first act of evil we read about. The days we are living in right now seems to be filled with terror and rumors of wars, these are uncertain times for all of us. We dont know what will happen tomorrow.

But why are we so shocked when a man takes a truck and uses it as a weapon to kill people? What he did in Nice France is just a result of being human. Look at the world today and you will soon see that evil is all around us, and where it is most abundant is in your own heart dear reader.

I know, by now you will  have smoke coming out of your ears, because how can I who have never met you judge you like this!?

I have never met you, so I do not know you. But God created you, and He knows your heart. He has already said that lying, stealing and adultery is wrong. He has even said in His word that lying, stealing, adultery is just as evil in His eyes as murder.

So what about you, have you stolen something regardless of its value? Have you ever told a lie?

If you are human I can guarantee you have told a lie one time in your life. And I can guarantee you have stolen something, regardless of its value.

What do we call a person who tells lies and a person who steals? That person is a liar and a thief.

The Bible says that no liars and no thieves shall have access to heaven. (1.Cor 6:9,10) So if you have ever told a lie in your life or stolen something, you will be denied access to heaven when you die. Instead God will judge you as a liar and as a thieve and you will end up in hell.

If that man in Niece France did not repent and put his trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as his saviour and Lord before he died, he is now in hell. I bet your first reaction is "good! he deserved it!".

Yes he deserves hell for what he did........but so do you my friend. (Romans 3:10)

We all deserve hell. You might never have killed a single person in your entire life. Perhaps you have lived a clean morally perfect life, and only told one lie way back when you where a child. For that 1 lie you will end up in hell when you die.

So its easy to see, we have all failed. The entire human race has failed and we are all doomed for hell.

God does not want you to end up in hell. But He has to make sure your lies, thefts, adultery are punished. He cant look the other way and not punish you for your sins against Him.

So He gave you His only Son Jesus Christ who lived a perfect life. Jesus never sinned a day in His life. So when Jesus died on a cross for your sins, His blood was an acceptable sacrifice to God for your sins. The blood of Jesus payed for all your sins, past, present and future.

But you have choice, a choice to accept this or to atone for your own sins when you die.

If you do not accept what Jesus did you will end up in hell. But if you accept what Jesus did, you will be forgiven.

We should not be shocked about what happened in Nice France. The act of evil in Nice France was just an expression of human nature. But it should serve as a reminder to all of us that we need Jesus and Him crucified for our sins.

The only thing that can protect us from evil, the only thing that can resolve mans bent towards doing act of evil, is the cross of Jesus Christ.

Dont wait to long, you dont know if you have another day to make the right choice.

What we dont like to think about, but we need to think about is this. That man in Nice France who drove that truck is in hell right now, if he didnt repent and believe before he was shot. If he repented and believed he is in heaven right now. The fact is this, we dont know and we will not know until we are home.

But.....in our minds...we would be quick to make the following judgement: The driver of the truck went to hell because he was evil, but his victims went to heaven because they where good.

In Romans 3:10 we read there is no good persons alive today. Nobody deserves heaven., So the fact of the matter is this, if the driver of the truck went to hell, his victims joined him in hell IF they did not believe in Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.

I know this is hard to accept for most of us, but we cant change what the Bible says.

But IF that driver accepted Jesus as His Lord and Saviour before he got shot, then the bible says he went to heaven while his victims who did not believe in Jesus as their Lord and Saviour went to hell.

I know this is upsetting for some, and it is not my personal opinion. This is what the Bible says, and if we dont accept this we discard a very vital important part of the Bible that will in the end determine if we end up in heaven or hell.

We dont know if we will have another day. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour you dont need to fear death. Death will be a homecoming for you, you will get to go home and meet the one who loves you so much that He gave His life for you.

If you dont believe in Jesus as your Lord and Saviour you have every reason to fear death. When you have died you will face God and He will jugde you to serve out your punishment for your crimes against His law in hell for an eternity.

If you are reading this, its not to late. You still have some time left to make the right decision. Make sure to make the right decision which is to repent (turn away from your sins) and put your faith and your trust in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.

What it all comes down to is this: We cant deny our guilt. We cant deny the fact that we are gulity. Gods law shows us our guilt and tells us that He has every right to send us to hell. (Romans 5:20)

So you have no exscuse, you cant claim "non guilty" confronted with Gods jugdment. The law Gods 10 commandments shows you your guilt.
