If Their House is on Fire

If we see our neighbor's house on fire, we:

  • Call 911
  • Knock on the door to alert them
  • Knock on windows to alert them
And if we know they're home but not hearing us, we become more desperate in our actions:
  • Call 911 again, with more urgency in our voice
  • Break down a door
  • Break through a window
  • Use a bullhorn if we had one
If they answer the door, but don't believe us, we would:
  • Plead
  • Cry
  • Drag them outside and show them the fire
We know this. We understand it. And we would do it.

Yet, most of our neighbors live in danger of hell fire every day.

And most Christians do nothing about it.
