We can be wrong about a lot of things in this life and still survive, but if we are wrong about who or what we are trusting for salvation, we will pay for that mistake throughout all eternity in the punishing fires of hell where there is soul-racking remorse with no chance of escape.

God cannot let the guilty go free because He is a righteous judge. This means that every sin that has ever been committed by everyone who has ever lived will be punished by the holy wrath of God. The Lord Jesus suffered God’s wrath as a substitute for those who will repent and believe His Gospel. Only a fool would reject God’s offer of mercy and grace
