Billionaire Donald Trump was asked one time, "What about death?" the writer asked. "Don't you worry about dying?" Trump said, "No. I'm fatalistic and I protect myself as well as anybody can. I prepare for things." This time, however, as Trump started walking up the stairs to have dinner with his family, he hesitated for a moment. "No," he said finally, "I don't believe in reincarnation, heaven or hell--but we go someplace. " Again a pause, "Do you know," he added, "I cannot, for the life of me, figure out where."

Donald Trump is just like many people of our world except that they don't have the money he has! He's lost and doesn't know it. He's lost in sin and doesn't realize it because he's having the time of his life.

People don't like to admit this, because we all would like to think we're in control of our lives, but in reality, either sin controls us or the Lord controls us. We're either walking with the Lord or with the evil one and most people don't even know the evil one exists!

(From a sermon by Steve Shepherd, The Grace of God, 11/1/2011)
