Biblical Truths

So that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:15-16

I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. John 14:6

You believe that God is one. You do well; the demons also believe, and shudder. James 2:19
  • Even the demons believe in God, so belief in God is not enough to get to heaven. 

Process of a Sinner's Prayer

Hopefully, when you look at these two diagrams, you recognize salvation is what Jesus did and not about what you can do? God wants remorse from the heart, not some weird performance. Trying to act out your faith is only going to exhaust you and confuse others. Please pay attention to the fourth green box highlighted. You are justified is such an important statement because many are trying to overlook sinful behaviors. If you believe that God is going to accept your lifestyle, you are wrong. There is nothing Biblical about that claim. Read Psalm 51 over and over again, digesting what God’s word is saying. If you don’t get it, tell that to God and ask for His wisdom to understand. Only the Holy Spirit can move man’s, heart. Ask, Seek, Knock! Don’t stop ASKing till God answers.

Introduction To God

Doc
God wants a personal relationship with you, not a bunch of fake actions or bizarre performances. God wants you to love Him with all of your heart and with all of your soul and with all of your might because, God knows if you love Him in this manner, then following Him becomes a joy. Just like any relationship in your life, when you love someone, you want to be a part of every aspect of his or her life. God wants that all-consuming relationship with His children, but God wants that relationship to be a free will choice and not a relationship out of compulsion.
