  The lake of fire, or some other cause of final human oblivion, is featured in all major religions.  In one way or another, all say that anyone who is not as pure and holy as God is doomed, that the penalty for even the slightest taint is destruction.  That means spiritual death plus physical death.
   This would damn all humans if the God of the Bible had not provided a way out for us, and done it as a gift.  He promises to forgive all those who appropriate the God-given coverage of the death of His Son, Jesus, who took our punishment on the cross.  Only the death of someone pure and undefiled, who must also be infinite, can pay the penalty for all sinners so as to free them from the fire.
   In the Law He gave to Moses, God made a covenant with all the benefits going our way.  He has obligated himself to save out of the fire and bring into eternal life with him all those who claim the blood of Christ as the total payment by proxy for their sins.  He regards us as if we are as pure as Jesus as long as we claim His son's death as our cover. 
   God did this only out of love for us.  No human can ever deserve or earn it; the standard is total purity, holiness and undefiledness:  utterly beyond our personal reach.  Jesus, the lamb of the Passover, is the unblemished Lamb, the sacrifice God made to buy us out of the iron furnace.  This is the promise to be found nowhere else.  Our only hope is that God will impute to us the purity of Christ when we claim it as our cover.  Our ministry exists because we cannot keep quiet about the truth.  Plus, we know there is a lot of disinformation out there; Satan is busy, even in the supposedly Christian church.  So there is a desperate need for the right information.

BOOK:  Christians say they are under grace now, not under the law. But if that were so, Christ's death on the cross would be irrelevant.  Christ himself said he came to fulfill the law, not to do away with it.   The Law actually is our defense.  "Grace in the Law" is a book by Pauline Holmes, revised in 2014.  Order a copy for $10.00 on our "order" form or download the entire book for free in a PDF file by clicking here:   Grace in the Law


"For the life of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul."

Leviticus 17:11

Is there a better verse in the whole Bible than the one above?  This statement from the Law God gave Moses is the gospel.  Only a blood payment releases us from damnation.  God has given us the blood of Christ upon the altar of Calvary to make atonement for our souls.  It is the blood of Christ, alone, that can pay the penalty for all human sin and free us from the lake of fire.  The Pure, Holy, and Undefiled lamb of God is our substitute in death.

LOTS MORE to listen to!  23 years of archived radio programs: 

The programs are certainly worth listening to, and they will make you think.  We are telling the gospel in a way you are unlikely to hear in the church:  it comes from grace in the Law and we are lawyers for the defense.  Many of our programs are related to the Bible and mental health.  We give you our full permission to copy as many as you like.  Give them away to those who need to hear the good news.  Help spread the word.

BOOKWhat has the reality of the lake of fire to do with mental health?  Find out in this book.  Do you want to understand why you have low self-esteem?  Or depression?  Or anxiety? Would you like to discover the source of mental health and have peace of mind? 

The book, "Hell and Madness," by Pauline Holmes helps you recognize the inborn, nitty gritty source of these problems:  existential guilt, which has nothing to do with having had a lousy childhood, etc.  It derives from a sense of deserving something bad beyond the doorway of death, and of having no personal control over the situation.  The book explains mental illness and points to the freely available God-given cure.  To download the free PDF click on:
