Hello Katrina, forgive me for my old posts I was a false convert to Christianity and I apologize for any wall I might of built up, I would however like to share with you the real Hope I have in Jesus Christ now that I examined myself to make sure I had not believed in vain. I found that I had not really repented and lacked true salvation. Now I know I'm saved and will go to heaven when I die. I'll explain;
I want to tell the Truth about God's Law the penalty for braking God's Law and the Gospel that will set you free from that eternal penalty.
Bad is an understatement of the human condition...more like wretched. Here is how you can see the wretchedness of your true human condition; first would you consider yourself to be a good person. Please answer to yourself yes or no; Ok...Now answer these questions to yourself as they apply:
Have you ever told a lie? have you every stolen something? "the value is irrelevant" Have you ever told someone you hated them? Have you ever looked at a person with lust?
If you are honest with yourself you will have answered yes to all. So we are really not Good are we.
Judge yourself by the 10 Commandments...remember it is not me who judges you I don't have that right, but God who created you does. Hear me out here...with good conscience can you really say you have never done these things.
What do you call someone who has lied to you? a "liar" What do you call someone who steals from you? a "thief" It is hard to admit to yourself these truths but they are true.
Jesus says in His word that anyone who looks at another with lust is guilty of committing adultery in his or her heart.
Another passage says anyone who hates is guilty of murder in their heart.
He also said that ALL liars,thief's, murderers, and adulterers will have their part in the lake of fire "hell"
Jesus created Hell for those who are guilty of breaking His Law the 10 Commandments, and if you just break one the bible says you are guilty of them all.
I was guilty once, I know what is was like to rationalize God and who I tried to make him to be in my own mind....which is Idolatry breaking the 2nd commandment. I was once hopelessly lost just as you are. By God's Law I seen my wretchedness and came to the realization I need a Savor to save me from Hell that I deserve no question.
Guess what, you now deep down know what you are guilty by the Law and we only went over 4 of them....how are we doing on the Good scale so far...not good. Yes we can put up a front and say have a nice weekend to appear to others as good as to cover up the real words of "Get real" "Dude this guy is wack" "You have got to be kidding" and so forth. But be real with yourself. The reason Jesus Christ had to come to earth and die was for you, God created you in His image, the devil lied to man causing them to doubt the truth of God, and the fall of mankind, sin, and evil flooded the hearts of man that explains the above guiltiness of your true state of hated of all things "Jesus Christ" in which you live today.
Atheists don't run to God in the same way a thief doesn't run toward the cops. - Ray Comfort
Now do you see a need for God to send His only begotten Son to die in your place so that you wont have to go to hell? Is it now all of a sudden practical to put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins and guiltiness before a Just Righteous and Holy God. Remember a guilty criminal in our court system wouldn't look to the judge and say, hey I'm a good person you should let me off the hook...what if that guy was guilty of murdering your parents or child. Would it be fair to say he is going to get what he had coming even if he yells out hey I don't believe in electric chairs!!
You would want Justice..how much more does God for His children. So stop coming against the things of God.... run toward Him with a broken spirit and guilty conscience and give your life to Jesus Christ who will never let you go to hell once you put your faith and trust in Him and Him alone. Stop justifying yourself but rather be justified in the sight of an all seeing and all knowing God who loves you and is waiting for you to run into His arms for your salvation. Ask Jesus to change you right this second cry out to Him, repent of your sins "turn away from your sins" and believe in your heart that He died for you personally and by faith believe that He was raised from the dead because He is God and can do that, confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord and make it your own prayer. Hell is a horrific place where you will burn for ever, Heaven is a place of true joy and bliss forever with your creator who loves you so much that He would die to get you there with Him.
