James 1: 22

James 1:22

Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.

I started with this pencil drawing:

Added the background and title
Printed it then colored the copy to get this:

Here are the folks that thought they were safe...they went to church, they may have even worked at the church, they went to conferences and listened to all the tapes.... BUT!  they never did anything with what they heard, they ignored all the warnings to "REPENT" and stop sinning... because, after all, "Everyone does it...He wouldn't 'send' EVERYONE to Hell?!!... and I do go to church after all!"  

Sorry folks, the Bible tells us what "saved" looks like...and purposeful sinning isn't it!  You'll know you are saved when you have made Jesus YOUR LORD,  .... that means YOU DON'T WANT TO SIN! ... you don't look for excuses to sin anyway!
You REPENT for past sins and diligently seek after  a righteous, holy life.



person who has authority, control, or power over others; a master,chief, or ruler.


verb (used without object)
to feel sorry, self-reproachful, or contrite for past conduct; regret or beconscience-stricken about a past action, attitude, etc. (often followedby of ): He repented after his thoughtless act.
to feel such sorrow for sin or fault as to be disposed to change one'slife for the better; be penitent.

ANYWAY.... About the picture!

These people are standing at the back gate of Heaven unable to enter in... the shadows of people to the top left are folks going to the front gates where Saint Peter is waiting there to greet them.... You'll notice there is a ceiling to the kingdom... but that's only in this back area... go through this back room and enter into the Heaven we all expect ... with streets of gold and GOD and Jesus  sitting on their thrones ready to welcome all that come in!  WHOOHOO!!!

I decided that it needed bushes after the fact so I added some of that stuff they use for bushes on miniature railroad sets.... so it is actually 3-D.  I may print it out again and put multiple layers of the people so they stand out away from the picture....  FUN! Gotta love that :-)
