What J Frank Norris Believed About Judgment to Come

It is of little use to try and refute the many false concepts of life after death. That is why God has chosen the vehicle of faith as the means by which we please God, and have some knowledge of future events.

To please God, it takes faith to receive favor in His sight. Revelation and conscience, both teach us this underlying well-established doctrine. This is a basic tenet of those who call themselves “Fundamentalists”. Among the army of Fundamentalists of the past was J. Frank Norris, whose ministry and content are the focal point of this website.

Fundamentalists believe in a literal heaven and a literal hell. Details of their descriptive nature are irrelevant until the priority issues can first be addressed. Fundamentalist cannot prove by any materialistic method whether heaven or hell really exists. But driven by faith, Fundamentalists believe that over-whelming evidence offers proof of an eternal existence either in heaven or an eternal torment.

If, at the conclusion of time, their faith turns out to be an illusionary fable, they have not lost anything. But if, on the other hand, and after death, the mystery is settled once and for all, we will know at that point who made the right choice.

The question of life after death presents for us a sobering thought and should suffice to arouse the inquisitive interest of every human being. To you who are watching this video, if you miss heaven, who are you going to blame to an irreversible decision? You will not be blaming God, but rather the perpetrators of a most vicious lie. Your destiny will not be at the hand of a vengeful God, but rather the sad mistake of listening to the voices of darkness. Honesty demands straight-forward answers to life’s perplexing mysteries. Fundamentalists pass the test of honesty when they assert their beliefs are based on faith.

Honesty should also compel the skeptics and liberals to approach life’s mysteries by admitting their lack of scientific certainty. In the final analysis, the simple conclusion is that faith surpasses the insufficient knowledge of finite human beings which just might lead to a gut-wrenching end.

My appeal to all who review this video is this; listen to that still, small voice that speaks words of wisdom and the God of all grace, will honor your simple faith and seal your destiny forever. As a believer, I don’t dwell on the aspect of God as revengeful, for that is not the most noble attribute of His nature.

But I do dwell and marvel at His greatest attribute. There is no more charming sound than the thought of God’s redeeming grace. In spite of our moments of despair, it is a thought of God’s redeeming grace reaching down to every sinful soul. It is the broken heart of a dying Savior that brings us to the place of

1. True confession
2. To the place of repentance
3. To a time of submission
4. To the place of receiving Salvation

Wonderful hymns sometimes tell the story better than a spoken word. I am grateful for all of our viewers, including many from Russia. May this song bless your heart.

“Marvelous Grace of our Loving Lord”

Marvelous grace of our loving Lord,
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt,
Yonder on Calvary’s mount out-poured,
There where the blood of the Lamb was spilt.

Marvelous, infinite, matchless grace,
Freely bestowed on all who believe;
You that are longing to see His face,
Will you this moment His grace receive?

Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within;
Grace, grace, God’s grace,
Grace that is greater than all our sin.
