Why would someone want a bad eternity?

Personally, I cannot understand why anyone would know they may suffer eternal punishment and be satisfied to suffer the consequences. Further, I cannot understand how someone can believe that Jesus is real and still choose not to follow Him. Maybe I am partial because I grew up going to services, attending Bible classes, and being taught of the power of the Word.

Did you know the demons believe and even shudder (tremble) that God is one?

“You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder!”  (James 2:19 ESV)

It is hard to believe the demons believe that God is one and still work against Him. It is hard to believe they shudder (tremble) in their belief, but still do what they do?

How can someone, who knows the oneness of God and the power God has over the world, still reject Him? The demons have chosen their fate, but people walking the Earth today still have a choice to obey Him before it is too late. Why do they not choose God?

If the demons, Satan’s army, know the power of God and shudder, should not everyone be mindful of the opportunity we have to obey God?

Are you better than the demons?

Do you believe and act on your beliefs?

Just some thoughts,
