How to Lose Your Soul

LostFound_Logo“What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? For what can a man give in return for his soul?” Mark 8:36-37

J.C. Ryle comments:

Any man can lose his own soul. He cannot save it, Christ alone can do that, but he can lose it and that in many different ways.

He may murder it by loving sin and cleaving to the world.

He may poison it by choosing a religion of lies and believing man-made superstitions.

He may starve it by neglecting all means of grace and refusing to receive into his heart the Gospel.

Many are the ways that lead to the pit. Whatever way a man takes, he, and he alone, is accountable for it. Weak, corrupt, fallen, impotent as human nature is, man has a mighty power of destroying, ruining, and losing his own soul. (Taken from Expository Thoughts on Mark, p. 171).

There is one way of keeping your soul and ten million ways of losing it.
