YOLO should be banished

Time Newsfeed on December 26, 2012 ran a poll entitled “What Word Should Be Banished in 2013?” Some of the contenders were “adorkable”, “gangnam style” and the acronym “YOLO” which stands for “You Only Live Once”. I personally voted for YOLO, not because I have any dislike for the acronym itself, but because it is Biblically incorrect. When I voted, it seemed to be the leading choice for banishment that over 30000 people had chosen.

Jesus said, I am the resurrection and the life and if anyone believes in me, though he was dead, yet shall he live (John 11:25). Those who are believe in Jesus Christ shall not perish but live eternally for that is the gift of God unto all mankind (John 3:16). Those who are in Christ do not live once, but they live forever.

Points to ponder:
Are you assured that you will live on forever? In other words, have you believed in Jesus Christ and received him to be your Lord, Savior and King. YOLO is not true and should be banished.

John 11:25-26 (KJV)
25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:
26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
