Many movies, books, plays, and games have dealt with the subject of what would happen if you could go back and do your life over again. I can think of at least a dozen things I would do differently. But, really, would your life be different today if you had restarted it and came through a 2nd time?
I say no, it would not be any different at all … at least not for the better. Oh, you may have bought into Microsoft back in the early 80s and became a gazillionaire but that would only have allowed you more money to further debauch yourself. Here is how I got there…
A tiger cannot change his stripes. Proverbs says this (only in a much better way). Only God can cause flesh to appear on dry bones. Only God can save a soul. Despite making good TV, a second chance in life would result the same way as the first chance unless God intervened. Only God can save a soul. And without eternal salvation, what difference would it make if you have 12 chances to re-live part of your life?
For 2010, let’s get back to the future. Eternity lasts a really long time… Do not enter it without being covered by the blood of Jesus.
