Have you read the questions above and my answers?
Now take that for example that such questions were the ones asked to me by the one holding me at gunpoint though it may appear silly or funny the thing is how sure am I that such answers could also mean false and would mean the consequence of me getting myself killed if looked at the perspective of the person pointing a gun at me. What then?
I suppose you're asking what am I trying to point at here, my point is that for so little effort we chose to take our freewill that much forgranted that we don't really take the time to think out our options and our stand with important issues in our lives. Issues that curtail towards where we would be spending eternity or how we'd live life to our fullest potentials.
A while ago I was talking to someone with regards to accepting God into their lives and I was told that he'd have to think it out first, so I said okay in fact it was such a wise decision but sad to say the whole issue of receiving salvation is not about getting to check out our options and like being held at gunpoint same is our situation now, in fact we've already been held at gunpoint by sin eversince the fall and its just a matter of time before the trigger is pulled, but now comes the escape we're asked with the question of do you need Jesus in your life? Well the obvious answer is yes, but it is a sad fact that some people are so complacent of the fact that they'd rather put logic and intellect above all else before sticking to the natural instinct of survival which is basically to say "yes".
Indeed its just a simple yes or no question there are no eithers, ifs, buts, maybes and all those other statements of playing safe, remember that the Bible says simply to believe in our hearts that Jesus is Lord and that salvation is a gift and what does one do to receive a gift, basically they just need to accept it, now how does the 'believe in your heart'statement fit in to accepting simple its just simply the act of saying yes and meaning it, to cut it short its about putting our faith in the redeeming work of God.
Another is that the gun as already pointed and its just a matter of time before it is shot, now I'd also like to ask is not time considered intangible?
Intangible means it cannot be restored once lost it is already lost now how would one respond to such a question with the answer of thinking it out first when in fact the one holding you at gunpoint is already losing his/her patience and demands a straight forward right away.
And now I ask, suppose I there is a gunman asking you the question do you accept Jesus in your life?
Would you answer a simple yes just as I have answered the following either or questions that I've written above?
By the way please bear in mind that Christ isn't really an option He's a neccessity.
