Let my people go

On January 29 at the Sunday service of “Philadelphia” church in Izhevsk Ilijas Mukhametdinov was talking about judgement. Basing his ideas on the verses from 1st Corinthians, he said that human’s judgement doesn’t mean much, because God is the only One who gives the final sentence to a person. 2000 years ago He came to earth because of love for people. When people reject this love they choose the path leading to hell. In the end of his sermon the preacher asked the audience if we are worried about the people who haven’t chosen the path to God yet (1 Corinthians 4:3-8).

Senior pastor of the church Pavel Zhelnovakov continued the subject. He preached that Christ came to earth to deliver people from sin and His sacrifice on the cross reconciled the whole world to Himself. Unfortunately, not all people accept it and they go to hell because God gave each person the right to choose their own way. But before they make a choice they should hear the word of reconciliation. And it is church’s task to bring this word to them. The Apostle Paul wrote that our helpers in this task are prayers (Ephesians 6:18), the example of pious life (2 Thessalonians 3:1-2), worshipping and praising God. All these things can help a person to get rid of external influence and make a sensible choice.
