Are you a prideful, selfish, sinner by nature? I am.
Jesus is my Savior. Man’s greatest problem is that God is just and that He delivers that absolute justice in the afterlife. Hell in the Bible is symbolized by Gehenna, which was an ancient garbage and trash dumping ground.
The Bible says that our best, ~our good works~, are literally, and it says it in exactly this way, are like used, bloody, filthy, rotting menstrual cloths.
Faith in Jesus Christ, crucified for all of your sins and raised to life for your justification, is your only hope to avoid everlasting torment and eternal separation from the only soul-satisfying holy, loving, and pure Being in the universe: God.
“The Biblical Gospel,” by David J. Stewart
[I love how direct this guy is. He actually ~says~ something when he writes!]
“To be saved, a person MUST acknowledge their guilt of sin to God. Romans 3:19 says that God’s Law was given so that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world might become guilty before God. The Law of God shows us our sinful condition, our hopelessness by human effort and our desperate need for the Savior. I hear a lot of people saying they prayed a prayer to get saved, but prayer is not the Gospel. One woman said she was saved at a very young age because she “prayed the Jesus prayer.” The Jesus prayer? There is no such thing. Asking Jesus into one’s heart is not the Gospel. Praying a prayer is not the Gospel. Asking Christ into one’s heart, making a full surrender or trusting Jesus is NOT the Gospel. A person may do all these things and still not be born anew of the Spirit of God. Here is the Gospel according to the Bible…
1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”
Jesus DIED, was BURIED and RESURRECTED after three days for our justification. Jesus shed His precious blood to pay for our sins (1st Peter 1:18-19. Note: All Scripture references are only to the faithful King James Bible).
You can ask Jesus into your heart, pray and commit your life to God and still go to Hell when you die. You had better come to God as a dirty, rotten, guilty, hell-deserving sinner; believing on the Lord Jesus as the Christ, the Son of God, to be forgiven of your sins (Acts 10:43; 16:31). Judas was a follower of Jesus and still went to Hell. Many people asked Jesus to heal them and still went to Hell. You had better come as a SINNER and believe on the SAVIOR.
The Bible tells us to BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (Acts 16:30-31). If you acknowledge your guilt of sin for breaking God’s Commandments and receive the Gospel as payment for YOUR SINS, then you are saved immediately, irrevocably and eternally. Amen!”
