    If you are named a beneficiary in a will should you take that will literally?

    Yes ... it is a legal document.

    The Bible is composed of 2 testaments. Except where noted in scripture, both are to be taken literally.

    There are multiple beneficiaries of material and spiritual gifts, but the groups we will consider here are these two ...

    One group receives eternal life with God based on what God has done for them on Calvary's Cross and on their simple acceptance of the gift, without works ...

    The other group are the rejectors of the gift, who will receive eternal separation from God and His blessings (their choice).

    People take God's blessings for granted. You see through eyes He gave you. You breathe through lungs He made for you. He is your author and sustainer. It is His world you get to play in. He works to keep all these things going and one day in the near future, the blessings will end for those who reject God's unspeakable gift. Darkness and loneliness and the gnashing of teeth will be the order of the day.

    The bible is a legal document.
