The Bible, which I FIRMLY believe, makes it very clear that we only live this life one time, and do not return after the fact.
“Man is destined to die once, and after that to face the judgment.” Hebrews 9:27
God has put on this earth for only a short time, after which we either spend eternity with Him, or separated from Him.
Many feel that we are destined to repeat life over and over until we finally get things right. They believe that this life is not long enough to purify ourselves from sin.

“NOW is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.” 2 Corinthians 6:2

I chose to believe the Bible, because I have seen so much of it played out in not just the world I live in, but in my own life. Even if I am wrong, I want to make sure that TODAY counts. Make good use of the time you’ve been given. Don’t waste it cause……
