SBC Church Sign - Midland, Texas

I saw the following sign on an SBC billboard here in Midland, Texas:

“Jesus died for myspace in heaven”

He was despised and forsaken of men,
A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;
He was despised,
We did not esteem Him.
Our griefs He Himself bore,
Our sorrows He carried;
Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten of God, and afflicted.
He was pierced through for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our iniquities;
Chastening for our well-being fell upon Him,
By His scourging we are healed.
God has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him.
He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Like a lamb that is led to slaughter,
By oppression and judgment He was taken away;
He was cut off out of the land of the living for the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke was due?
But the LORD was pleased to crush Him, putting Him to grief;
He would render Himself as a guilt offering,
He poured out Himself to death,
And was numbered with the transgressors;
Yet He Himself bore the sin of many,
And interceded for the transgressors.
Jesus died because His sacrifice was the only way that I/you might know forgiveness of our sin, it was the only way we could be justified before God. Friends there is no "MySpace" in heaven without repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.
This is the sort of seeker friendly evangelism that will have many believing that they are saved when indeed they are not. They will wake up someday to their eternal shock.

The only space in heaven is for those for whom Christ died, and he died for those whom the Father had given Him; and those whom the Father had given Him were those whom, in love, He predestined to adoption as sons through Christ to Himself, so that in the ages to come He might show them the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward them in Christ Jesus.

Heaven is reserved for only those who are robed in the righteousness of Christ, which is why He is called the Lord our Righteousness.
