“You Only Live Once”? Is This True?

“So tired of hearing this unthinking lie. What Christian is there who believes the devil’s lie that this is the only life? That you only live once? Have they not heard of the resurrection of the dead and of life everlasting? 

Closely related to this lie is this one: “Now is the only time you will ever have.” 

This is wrong on at least two levels. 

One, there is a strong possibility that there will be time later.

Two, if you are a believer, you will have all eternity.

How many foolish decisions and sins have been committed because people believed either of these?

The truth is that this life ~is~ the only time before Judgment Day to do things for the Lord.”
