WHY DON'T PEOPLE COME TO CHRIST
Jesse M. Hendley
I believe in God. I believe the Bible is His Word. I
believe there is a heaven. I believe there is a hell.
I believe the wages of sin is death, as the Bible
teaches. I believe that God has made a way to heaven,

there; why doesn't every lost person come and accept
Jesus? I preach on the radio. People listen. I talked
to a man the other day who has heard me preach for
years, but he is NOT SAVED. Others have been saved.
But my preaching hasn't had any effect on that man. He
has heard enough Gospel to save ten thousand people
ten thousand times. But he isn't SAVED. WHY? Why don't
people come to Christ?
