Jesus said we should pluck out our eyes and cut off our limbs if they are helping us into hell. Matthew 18:8-9 "If your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life lame or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into the everlasting fire. 9 And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire." One day the reality of what Jesus said here suddenly dawned on me i.e. sin is a killer. It was our sins that put Jesus on the cross, causing him to suffer and endure a gruesome death. No one who is a sinner will enter eternal life, no one. Our whole life in this world is nothing more than a grand opportunity to triumphantly enter the next life and to help others do the same. Living in sin will result in nothing more than an eternal waste of opportunity. God said through Ezekiel, "The soul that sinneth, it shall die..." (Ezekiel 18:20) Paul in Romans 6 agreed when he said "...the wages of sin is death..." Sin has a pay day. The death spoken of here is final, eternal and beyond any imagination or description. The pain of losing a limb, even if sawn off without anaesthetic, is nothing to be compared with the terror of hell fire. Jesus was not crazy, he was just saying, AVOID HELL AT ALL COST and remember that sin is what will put you there!
