Last Episode of Alias :-(

Last night ended a five year run of one of my favorite TV shows, Alias. I faithfully watched this show from the very beginning. It was one of those shows that made you think, had action and dropped in humor here and there. The show many times left the viewer in suspence and sitting on the edge of your seat waiting to see what would happen next.

Last night's final episode answered many questions and for the most part wrapped the storyline, it wasn't the best ending. Overall, I was satisfied with the final show.

There was one nugget from last night show that had me thinking about a spiritual truth. Sloane, the main bad character throughout the five seasons, while at one time I believe he changed, but ended up turning bad again. He ended up getting the one thing I believe he was seeking, that was "eternal life". Unfortunately for him, his "eternal life" is stuck in a place of "hell".

This character while he may have "eternal life" was stuck in a place he couldn't leave, he couldn't escape from, buried and trapped.

I am not minimizing the Biblical placed called Hell, however the same is true for those who choose not to become a Christ-follower, they to will live eternally in a real place call Hell. This is place of eternal separation from God. A place that is eternal where there is no escape.

I thank God for the awesome HOPE that we have in His Son, Jesus Christ for those who choose to place their trust in Him as Lord and Savior, there is another place called Heaven where we can spend eternity in the presence of God.

I am so glad that God has provided a WAY for each of us and all that we have to do is choose to follow that way for our personal life.

The greatest way to live is the way that Jesus lived while here on Earth...
