For the non believer, this is a place to ask questions and get answers. Start your quest by reading the post entitled “Who is Christ Jesus?” If you have questions, submit them in a comment. Hopefully, you will come to know and trust in the risen Savior and become one of his children.

If you’re ready, here’s how you can be saved from God’s wrath, receive the free gift of eternal life and become one of His children:

GOD’S SIMPLE PLAN OF SALVATION

DO YOU KNOW FOR SURE

that you are going to be with God in Heaven?  If God were to ask you,

“Why should I let you into My Heaven?”

what would you say?  Not sure? Then this post has…

THE BEST NEWS YOU COULD EVER HEAR!

The few minutes it will take you to read this may be the most important time you will ever spend!

Did you know that the Bible tells

how you can know for sure

that you have eternal life and will go to be with God in Heaven?

“These things I have written unto you . . . that you may know that you have eternal life . . . . ” (1John 5:13)

HERE’S HOW:

The Bible says there are 5 THINGS you need to know about eternal life:

1.  Heaven

ETERNAL LIFE IS A FREE GIFT!

The Bible says,

“. . . the GIFT of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)

And because

HEAVEN IS A GIFT,

like any other genuine gift . . .

IT IS NOT EARNED OR DESERVED

No amount of personal effort, good works, or religious deeds can earn a place in Heaven for you.

“For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is a GIFT of God: NOT OF WORKS,
lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8,9)

WHY is it that no one can earn his way to Heaven?

Because . . .

2. MAN

MAN IS A SINNER

“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)

Sin is transgressing God’s law and includes such things as lying, lust, cheating, deceit, evil thoughts, immoral behavior, and more.

AND BECAUSE OF THIS . . .

MAN CANNOT SAVE HIMSELF

If you wanted to save yourself by good deeds, do you know how good you would have to be?

“Be therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in Heaven is perfect.” (Matthew 5:48)

Which such a high standard, no one can save himself.

HOWEVER, IN SPITE OF OUR SIN . . .

3. GOD

GOD IS MERCIFUL

And therefore doesn’t want to punish us.

The Bible says that “. . . God is love.” (1 John 4:8)

And He says, ” . . . I have loved you with an everlasting love . . . ” (Jeremiah 31:3)

But the same Bible which tells us that God loves us, also tells us that . . .

GOD IS JUST

And therefore must punish sin.

He says  . . .

” . . . (I) will by no means clear the guilty . . . ” (Exodus 34:7)

” . . . the soul that sins, it shall die.” (Ezekiel 18:4)

WE HAVE A PROBLEM

On one hand, God loves us and doesn’t want to punish us.  But on the other hand He is just and
must punish sin.

God solved this problem for us in the person of . . .

4. JESUS CHRIST

He died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and rose from the grave to purchase a place
in Heaven for us.

“All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on Him (Jesus) the iniquity (sin) of us all.” (Isaiah 53:6)

Jesus Christ bore our sin in His body on the cross and now offers you eternal life (Heaven) as a free gift.

This gift is received by . . .

5. FAITH

is the key that opens the door to Heaven.

Many people mistake 2 things for saving faith:

1. Saving faith is not mere HEAD KNOWLEDGE, like believing certain historical facts.  The Bible says that the devil believes there is one God, so believing in one God is not saving faith.

2. Saving faith is not mere TEMPORAL FAITH, that is, trusting God for temporary crises such as financial, family, or physical needs. Now these are good, and you should trust Christ for these, but they are not saving faith!

SAVING FAITH

is trusting in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life.  It means resting upon CHRIST ALONE and what HE HAS DONE rather than in what you have done to get to Heaven.

” . . . Believe (trust) on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved . . . ” (Acts 16:31)

You have just read the GREATEST STORY ever told about the GREATEST OFFER ever made by the GREATEST
PERSON who ever lived - JESUS CHRIST.

The question God is asking you now is . . .

WOULD YOU LIKE TO RECEIVE THE GIFT OF

ETERNAL LIFE?

Because this is such an important matter, let’s clarify just what it involves.

It means you need to:

  • TRANSFER YOUR TRUST

    From what you have been doing to what Christ has done for you on the cross.

  • ACCEPT THE LIVING CHRIST AS SAVIOR

    Open the “door” to your heart and invite Him in.

    He says “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to Him . . . .” (Revelation 3:20)

  • RECEIVE JESUS CHRIST AS LORD

    Give Him the “driver’s seat” and “controls” of your life, not the “back seat.”

  • REPENT

    Be willing to turn from anything that is not pleasing to Him.  He will reveal His will to you as you grow in your relationship with Him.

    Now, if this is what you really want . . .

YOU CAN GO TO GOD IN PRAYER

right where you are.  You can receive His gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ right now.

“For with the heart man believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:10,13)

If you want to receive the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ, then call on Him, asking Him for this gift right now.

HERE’S A SUGGESTED PRAYER:

“Lord Jesus, thank You for Your gift of eternal life.  I know I’m a sinner and do not deserve eternal life.  But You loved me so You died and rose from the grave to purchase a place in Heaven for me.  I now trust in You alone for eternal life and repent of my sin.  Please take control as Lord of my life.  Thank you so much!”

If this prayer is the sincere desire of your heart, look at what Jesus promises to those who believe in Him:

” . . . I say unto you, he that believes in Me has everlasting life.” (John 6:47)

WELCOME TO GOD’S FAMILY

  • If you have truly repented (turned away) from your sins
  • Placed your trust in Jesus Christ’s sacrificial death
  • And received the gift if eternal life
  • You are now a child of God!  Forever!

Welcome to the Family of God!

“But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.” (John 1:12)

    Our father where are you? We need you take me out of this world. It appears that people forgot that God gave this world to us. We have failed our mission as a whole but it’s not to late if enough of us come together in his name.

    Hi Torrence, yes the people of the world for the most part has gone their own way and have rejected God’s free gift of eternal life. But there’s good news! All who receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, never have to fear suffering God’s wrath. That’s what it mean’s to be saved. Saved from God’s wrath.

    Hello Peter,

    Wow, my prayers go out to you Peter. 20,000 youths is a big responsibility. May God richly bless you.

    These are some of the ministries I use on a regular basis. Thru The Bible at http://ttb.org has a 5 year bible teaching daily radio program. Dr. J. Vernon McGee goes thru the whole bible in 5 years. They broadcast in over 100 different languages and dialects. They also have material that you can download.

    http://equip.org is another ministry that has many resources that you can listen to and download.

    These have been a blessing to me and I hope they can benefit you and your youths.

    Let me know if I can help you further.

    I am an Atheist. I can absolutely destroy the idea that a god or gods can exist. It is inescapable that it is NOT possible for the Christian “god” to exist in the Universe. To exist is to BE something, to be something is to have definate, determinate characteristics. To have those attributes would LIMIT a deity that Christians assert is “LIMITLESS”. I have probably 20, at a minimum, other air tight refutations of Jehovah, Elohim, or JHVH or whatever name you give it. Thanks for your consideration and I look forward to any and all CIVIL, respectful, sincere arguments.

    Thank you for your comment. As you may have noticed, your comment has been edited because I will not promote your Atheistic agenda. However, I would be happy to debate with you about the existence of God. But I require that we discuss one topic at a time and that you will be brief and to the point.

    In regard to your comment, what gives you the idea that God can’t possibly be something or have definate, determinate characteristics? This in no way makes Him limited. On the contrary. God is spirit and He does have definate, determinate characteristics. If He didn’t, then He would not exist.
