John 3: 16 through 18

September 8, 2008

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
17 God did not send his Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it
18 There is no judgment awaiting those who trust him. But those who do not trust him have already been judged for not believing in the only Son of God.

– New Living Translation

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who attends church will not perish but have eternal life
17  God did not send his Son into the world to condemn it.  He knew churchgoers like nothing more than condemning the world for every sin they can find, so they would enthusiastically do that job without being asked.
18 There is no judgment awaiting those who attend church every Sunday.  But those who do not attend have already been judged because if you don’t attend church there is no way you can be a Christian and it is a sure sign you have rejected God.

– Modern Church Translation
