Bible verses about cowards
Sometimes we might have fear and anxiety in our lives and when this happens we just need to trust in the Lord, believe in His promises, and seek Him in prayer, but there is a type of cowardice that will take you to hell. Many people who profess Jesus as Lord are true cowards and that is why many people will not make it into Heaven.
False teachers like Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, and T.D. Jakes when asked are homosexuals going to hell they jump around the question. They want to please people and they don’t want to speak up for God.
Cowards don’t preach the real Word of God. Men of God like Stephen, Paul, and more boldly preached the Word of God even through persecution.
False teachers say things like I’m only supposed to preach love. These people stand up for things that God hates and when you do that you are fighting against God.
Are you cowardice? If someone said disown Jesus or I will shoot you in the face will you do it? Are you ashamed of God’s Word? If a friend says why aren’t you going to do these things with us it’s because of God isn’t it?
Will you be ashamed and laugh it off, say no, or brush it off or will you say that’s exactly why? Are you embarrassed to talk about God around friends and family? Believers these days are afraid of persecution so they hide. If you are not willing to deny yourself and take up the cross daily you can’t be a follower of Christ. What happened to the true followers who cared not what the world thinks because Jesus Christ is everything? Ephesians 5:11 Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.
Many will be denied Heaven
