Perhaps the “God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life” message applies only to the United States.

Why Would Anyone Become a Christian?
If this is the truth about the Christian life, who in his right mind would choose to become a Christian?

Without the righteousness of Christ, they’ll perish on the Day of wrath. They need to repent or they will perish.
