Here in the Philippines, they print pictures on the packages of cigarettes, that show what could happen if you smoke. Is it effective? I don’t know, but I don’t see a lot of smoking going on. Of course that could be due to the cost of cigarettes.
God told us, in his word, what would happen if you sin – death! Is it effective? I don’t know, because I see a lot of people sinning, including me from time to time. God also showed us what our sin cost – the death of his only Son, Jesus. You can pay for your sins, or accept Jesus’ payment. It’s up to you.
”For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God [that is, His remarkable, overwhelming gift of grace to believers] is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Rom. 6:23 AMP)
