Making the Cut
Over the past few decades, there’s been a growing obsession with the occult. Just look at the movies that have been made within the past ten years about magic, demons, the possessed, and the like. Even people who adhere to zero faith seem to acknowledge the existence of the demonic.
But, what about inside the Church? Do we acknowledge their existence? Do we live our lives according to the reality that Satan and demons are real, and that they want to claim us and those whom we love as Hell’s prize?
Of course, we shouldn’t become obsessed with the demonic, but we should at least acknowledge what the consequences are for missing the cut.
So often, we see the Saints, and then we see the sinners destined for the seventh circle of Hell, which leaves us somewhere in between. We like to think that we’re generally good people, so that means we’re destined for Heaven…right?
When it comes to the question of our own eternal damnation or eternal happiness, are we really okay with just a half-hearted shrug and the response “I guess we’ll see how the chips fall.”
That’s what we must ask ourselves. When our time comes, what side are we going to land on? And, what are we willing to do to make the cut?
