Live forever!



I recently read an article that was a review of The Price of Immortality, a book by journalist Peter Ward. In it, he highlights a quirky, quasi-religious group called “The Church of Perpetual Life,” based out of Pompano Beach, Florida. Its adherents mainly talk food supplements and cryonics, while espousing the hope that science will one day grant eternal life. Peter Ward writes with arguably not enough optimism that “Medicine has extended average life expectancy significantly in the past century, and scientists now turn their expertise to more extreme measures to stop people from dying.”

There is a way to live forever, but I can confidently tell you it has nothing to do with science. And the thought of living forever in this world as we know it is an unrealistic, non-existent hope. For this world will one day pass away and all things will be made new. “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed. Since all these things are thus dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming day of God, because of which the heavens will e set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn! But according to the promise we are waiting for the new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.” 2 Peter 3:10-13

So, if this world and all we now know of it will one day be gone, how can anyone ever believe they can live forever. There is a way which is guaranteed for people to live on, and for those who trust in this one way to eternal life it will become for them a wonderful reality. And just where do we find this amazing means to live on? Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no one comes to the father accept through me.” John 14:6 Then we here the Christ make this claim in John 11:25-26, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die.”

One day, for the members of “The Church of Perpetual Life”, there will be a rude awakening! Whether it is when they are called out of this world or Jesus comes back again. And there will be no scientist that will be able to save them or extend their life. I pray they and other non-believers hear the truth of the Gospel before it is to late!!!!!!!!!Pastor McCarty
