Are You A Good Person?

Has anyone seen this!? The Good Person Test? I thought it was a joke at first but then it began to be all too familiar. I try not to look for these things because they really set me on edge and tonight is no exception. IS THIS ALL WE ARE!? How is it that making people feel bad about themselves is going to show them Jesus? Show me when Jesus walked up to someone and gave them the “good person test”. Welcome to the circus!

One Response to “Are You A Good Person?”

  1. When did Jesus give someone the Good Person Test? The Good Person test uses the principle of law to the proud and grace to the humble. Jusus, Paul, Peter, Stephen, etc. all use this principle every time.

    Why does it set you on edge? Because your conscience is speaking to you. Listen to what it is saying. Have you ever told a lie? Have you ever stolen something… even something small? Jesus said that whoever looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart. Have you ever done this? If you break a civil law, there is a penalty. It is the same with God’s law. With God’s law the penalty is hell. For example, In the Book of Revelation it says that all liars have a place in the lake of fire. You should be on edge. You should be concerned.

    But there is some REALLY GOOD news. If you break a civil law; and your in court; and the judge says the fine is $1,000,000. But you can’t pay it, so you’re off to prison. But them someone walks into the courtroom, hands the clerk a check for $1,000,000. You fine is paid!! What happens to you now? You go free. That’s what Jesus has done for you. Because you’ve broken God’s law there is a penalty that must be paid. The death penalty. We call it hell. Jesus died to pay the penalty you owe for breaking God’s law.

    Let’s go back to the courtroom. Someone has given the clerk a $1,000,000 check to pay your fine. But you say, “No thank you. I don’t want your gift.” What happens then? You must pay the fine yourself. That means you go to hell.

    So it’s your choice. You turn away from breaking God’s laws and accept the gift Jesus is offering… his having paid your fine. Or you can reject it and pay the penalty yourself.

    Here are just a few of the places where Jesus gave someone the good person test:

    Mark 10 starting in verse 13
    John 4 starting in verse 4
    Luke 18 starting in verse 16
