At the beginning of the 21st century, human beings are living as if God did not exist, proud of "having overcome the idea of God" as if all things had been done alone, as if we were not to be judged on everything we do or leave of doing. What madness of our generation! What a suicide of our time! Because certainly the wrath of God is shown against all indifference and voluntary ignorance that people show towards Him, because their eternal power and the reality of their existence are clearly seen through the magnificent work of the creation of the world and the universe, of way that there is no excuse for our attitude, because having recognized in the intimate that only through a Creator could be done what is created, our reasonings darkened by rejecting after this truth, the greatest of all, and living reasoned as if God did not exist, as if we were a product of chance! Without giving thanks recognizing that life comes from Him, without counting on Him for anything or in the small or big decisions of our life; without worshiping him as befits his Majesty. And the darkness of our understanding grows thicker when adoration is given to created beings and not to the Creator, to men and women who excel in something or something, they are our gods; To images and sculptures created by the human imagination; or money, pleasures. We run after them wildly! And thus presuming of wise, we prove that we are not it by casting aside the Source of all wisdom. (one)

MORE HUNDRED IN THE FALL
By casting ourselves away from God in this way, He also left us to the hardness of our hearts, and we sink our sexual desires into impurities, being full of all corruption in our customs and all lasciviousness, dishonoring among ourselves our own bodies, fallen in vile passions, making sexual uses against nature, filling our thoughts of fornication and adultery. To us who change the truth of God for the lie worshiping the creature before the Creator, God abandoned us to our reprobate mind, and we are living full of deceit, envy, strife, and malice. Being gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insulting, proud, vainglorious, disobedient to parents, foolish, disloyal, without natural affection, without compassion. (two)
(2) Epistle to the Romans 1: 24-31.
THE JUST JUDGMENT OF GOD
With all this, how can we not provoke the wrath of God? He is against all impiety and injustice that human beings commit, being death, eternal condemnation, the just sentence of God for those who practice such things; and none of us will be able to escape from that judgment of God who will pay will go, anger, tribulation and anguish to every human being who does the bad, and how many of the previous denunciations are true in our life! We have all come to be guilty before God. And it is useless to think that arguments such as: "I do not kill", "I do not steal", "I do not do badly to anyone" will help us. With such things we can justify ourselves before men, but not before God, since it is necessary to be declared righteous before Him, a whole life without stain or sin, that is, always obey his commandments perfectly, and thus, in front of God, no human being will be justified!

SALVATION OFFERED BY GOD
It is sad, anguished, the situation in which we find ourselves if we live trusting in "our good behavior" some good things that we do and with which we try to justify ourselves; but God has made shine a light in this black horizon of humanity: As something apart from our behavior, has openly disclosed his salvation, He has prepared through Jesus Christ a justice, a perfection with which the human being covers his ético misery, his spiritual nakedness and can be saved from the wrath that will come. God will recognize as righteous, forgetting the sins committed, all those who believe in their hearts that He raised Jesus Christ from the dead and accept and confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord of their lives. God has been pleased to save through faith in Jesus Christ everyone who believes, because there is no difference between any human being since all have sinned and are deprived of the glory of God. Now God justifies, forgives and saves for free the one who believes in his heart that Christ was raised from the dead by the power of God, and asks with entreaty for his help and protection, since he who is Lord of all is rich for all who they invoke him. There is nothing to pay him. Nor would there be with what! The salvation to which God invites us is free, He does it in his grace and love for us, it is a benefit or servicio that we do not deserve, such as a pardon granted to a person sentenced to life imprisonment. For we have spoken at the beginning of the state of sin and corruption in which we find ourselves, making it clear that by our works only punishment and judgment will come to us; but God shows his incomparable love in that being sinners Christ died for us. He understood and saw with transparent clarity the terrible end of human beings and in spite of being us his enemies he loved us and gave himself to suffer the punishment in our place. Christ said "There is no love that is this: that one lay down his life for his friends" (S: John 15:13) And He put it for his enemies!

THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE DEATH OF CHRIST.
In the death of Christ there is redemption, there is a remedy, there is refuge; He gave his life to save ours, paid the just, the Perfect for the unjust so that we could clothe ourselves with his perfection; He carried in his body the wages that our sins deserved: His shed blood was the price for our ransom.
Also the sacrifice of Christ was accepted by God as the perfect work for our salvation, since the righteous wrath of God that we deserved for our sins Christ accepted to be discharged on him. Thus He took our injustices and paid for them and offers us His perfections to live by them. In this way the justice of God is not reduced because He said that the wages of sin is death and Christ agreed to die in our place so that through his death we have eternal life those who believe in him. Thus the blood of the Just One who in no way deserved death, was shed for the salvation of all those who accept by faith this price for their ransom. (6)

A TRUE MESSAGE
Here is the message of God for men and women of all times, also of ours; no doubt it is hard for human vanity and pride, but the tremendous thing about it is that it is true. If it were a man who pointed out our ético condition in this way, we could deny it and he could not prove many of these things, but with God we can not do this. He sees everything, so he speaks confidently of our situation, because he knows our thoughts more secrets, our most hidden sins and the hidden intentions of our heart. On the day He judges us all these things will come to light, then excuses will not work. (8)

It will not matter …
– If you were rich or poor.
– If you were a militarist or a pacifist.
– If you lived in a palace or a hut.
– If you were white or black.
– If you lived in the first or third world.
– If you were atheist or religious.
There will be a great difference if you received Jesus Christ, the Son of God, as your personal Savior … or if you did not want to, if you neglected it.
"To all who received him, to those who believe in his name, he gave them the right to become children of God" (John 1:12).
"He who refuses to believe in the Son (of God) will not see LIFE, but the wrath of God is upon him" (John 3:36).
What group do you belong to? To the first?
Then you will have a part in "the first resurrection" "Blessed and holy is he who has a part in the first resurrection, the second death has no power over them" (Revelation 20: 6)
Or do you belong to the second group yet? To those who have not given their lives to Jesus Christ? Even though you have read his Words? Then you will suffer the pain of eternal damnation, far from the presence of the Lord, in endless torments. (Luke 16:24)
