Is Cliffe delivering the Good News or the Bad News?

Cliffe has been speaking to students across the nation for the past 30+ years so that he can proclaim the Good News, which is that Jesus Christ has died for their sins so that they can have eternal life.  In the process, he delivers the Bad News, which is much bigger than the Good News.  The Bad News is that, without the saving blood of Jesus's death and resurrection, we are all on a one-way trip to hell, which is separation from God, perhaps a fiery horror with weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Why is the Bad News bigger than the Good News?  We know this because of Matthew 7:13-14, which says:

"Enter through the narrow gate.  For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.  But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it." (NIV)

So only a few make it to heaven.  Which means the vast majority of the some 100,000,000,000 people who have ever been born will end up in hell.  Yikes!

Cliffe speaking in Texas and Arizona this fall

Currently, Cliffe's Give Me An Answer website (givemeananswer.org) has him scheduled to visit Texas and Arizona this fall, two of his favorite places to go talk to students.

Cliffe visits the University of Texas at Austin each November.  This November, he'll be there for 5 days, the whole school week of November 18-22.

He'll also be in Texas much sooner, at Texas Sate University in San Marcos, about 30-45 minutes southwest of Austin, for 4 days, from September 30-October 3.  The Sunday right before, September 29, he'll be in Austin at Grace Covenant Church, speaking at the morning church service and later that evening.  His evening session will be a Q&A like he does on campuses.

And then he'll also be at the University of Arizona in Tucson for 4 days, from October 21-24.

If you're in the area, it's time well spent to go hear him, and even to engage him in some Q&A on life's biggest questions.
