The Worst Crime
If you were asked what was the worst crime, what would you reply? Murder, rape, torture, child molesting, genocide, or crimes against humanity? Yet, as serious as these crimes are, they are not The Worst Crime.
The Stiffest Sentence
If you were the judge and able to impose any sentence for any of the above crimes, what sentence would you consider appropriate for the crime? Death in any of its various forms, or life imprisonment without the possibility of parole? Yet, as strict as you might be, your decision would not be The Stiffest Sentence.
The Harshest Punishment
If you were the jury and had the responsibility to impose any punishment that you chose, what punishment would you recommend? Solitary confinement, a chain gang, or monotonous, solitary labor? Yet, as harsh as the punishment is, it would not be The Harshest Punishment.
The Worst Crime is not man against man, but man against God. The worst crime is not something you do, but Someone you reject. God gave you a choice—trust Jesus Christ as your Saviour, who died in your place, or follow Satan, who is the prince of this world and its sin. The worst crime is to take the “mark” of the Antichrist, and reject the Christ of the Cross.
The Stiffest Sentence is the sentence you will receive for committing the worst crime. The Bible says if you choose Satan, thereby dying in your sins, “that the smoke of your torment ascends up for ever and ever (unto the ages of ages);” that you will be “cast into the lake of fire” that “shall never be quenched (put out).” Tormented for ever and ever!
The Harshest Punishment is the deserved and fair penalty you will receive as your sentence for your crime. The Bible says you, “shall drink of the wrath of God;” “shall be tormented with fire and brimstone;” and “shall have no rest day or night.” Punished without intermission for ever and ever!
The Worst Crime has been committed. The Stiffest Sentence has already been handed down. The Harshest Punishment awaits you at the moment of your death. But while you live, there is still mercy to be found at God’s court of justice. You still have time to repent (change your mind) about your sins, acknowledge Christ’s blood shed on your behalf, and receive Jesus Christ (God come in human flesh) as your Saviour/Deliverer from sin.
Right now, Believe—Repent—Pray,
“God be merciful to me a sinner who believes in my heart that Jesus Christ paid the full payment of my sin. That He fully satisfied the wrath of God on my behalf through His shed blood. And that You raised Him from the dead, fully satisfied with His sacrificial death. I now repent of my sins and trust Jesus Christ’s death alone for my salvation and deliverance from sin. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.”
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved” Romans 10:13.
