7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
It is a simple concept. If you believe in christ, are born again, and follow his teachings you will see true salvation. If you are a sinner and non-believer, you will face the second death. An eternity without the presence of God. That is a scary thought. So, would you rather endure harsh words and be mocked for your beliefs, live righteous before God, and enter in to heaven? Will you side with the world and be with the world when they face the second death? I would rather be mocked and laughed at for following Christ than ever take a chance on an eternity without ever feeling his love.
