Discussion for John 5:40

  • Sound doctrine for verse 40
    John 5:40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. People almost always are too complacent, because they cherish the illusion that when things start to go bad, they will have time to extricate themselves It never works that way. Events move much faster than anyone expects... History usually doesn t evolve in a slow and orderly way often it leaps forward in disorderly, chaotic jumps. Luke 13 4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. no one of those eigteen woke up knowing they were going to die in the tower.
