  1. PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS. IT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU COULD EVER DO AND IT ONLY TAKES A FEW MINUTES. ARE YOU 100% SURE THAT IF YOU DIED TODAY THAT YOU WOULD GO TO HEAVEN? There are some things that you should know: 1. Realize that you are a sinner and in need of a Savior: Ro 3:23 "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" Ro 3:10 "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" It all began with the story of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. God created them perfect, there was no death or sorrow. God told them not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. They disobeyed God and as a result, sin entered into the world. The pain, which this world sees, is the result of sin. 2. Because of our sins, we die both spiritually and physically, but God sent His Son to die so that you can have a chance not to have to go to hell by accepting what He did on the cross: Ro 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Ro 5:8 "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Every person who has ever lived is a sinner and is not righteous because we do bad things. A sin is a crime against God, just as if you steal something at the store, it is punishable by going to jail. It's the same thing with sin. Lying, stealing, sex before marriage, pride, hatred, ect. are all sins. Hell is a prison for those who commit crimes against God. That’s because you must be perfect in order to get to heaven. No matter how well you live your life from then on, you have already sinned, which will be punished if you are not pardoned. If you commit a crime, and then live as a good citizen you still will go to jail for the crime you committed. Right? Just as the President can pardon a crime so you won't go to jail, Jesus can pardon your sins so that you do not go to hell, and can go to heaven when you die. You won’t have to pay for your own sins because Jesus already did that for you. But if you reject the pardon that He offers, you will have to pay for your own sins by going to hell. 3. If you will confess Jesus Christ as Your Lord, place your Faith in Him and Believe in your heart that He died, shed His blood and rose again as a sacrifice for your sins, you will be saved (from hell). Eph 2:8,9 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. Ro 10:9,10 "that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.." You cannot get to heaven by being a good person, going to church, baptism or any other way other than by turning to Jesus, believing in your heart that He died on the cross and rose from the dead for your sins and placing your Faith in Him. While these are good things to do, some people believe that they will get to heaven, but your Faith must be in Christ and His sacrifice alone and nothing else, giving your life to Him. Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Romans 3:25 "Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;" 4. You must place your Faith in Jesus Christ believing in your heart that He died and rose again shedding His blood to pay for your sins as a sacrifice to God. If you want to accept Jesus free gift of salvation, or if you have any doubts about whether or not you are going to heaven, Pray this prayer from your heart to God in Faith: ”Dear Lord Jesus I believe that You are the Lord and believe in my heart that You died on the Cross and Rose from the dead, shedding your blood for my sins. I accept Your sacrifice for my sins. I repent and turn to You as the only way of salvation, placing my Faith and Trust in You as Lord of my life, Please save me and I thank You for it, in Jesus holy name, Amen.” If you have placed your faith in Jesus Christ and meant it with all of your heart, you are now a child of God and will go to heaven. Now that you are on your way to heaven, you should attend a bible believing church and follow in baptism.
  2. They failed in that they stopped trusting in the Lord to carry them through it. The Olympics is postponed until next year. I feel sorry for all of those Penn State Wrestlers that skipped this season to train for the Olympics this year and now must wait yet another year.
  3. The Q Anon movement claims that Trump is going to be conducting a war during this Corona virus against these traitors from what I hear. He is going to be conducting mass arrests of Congressman, Hollywood Actors and Producers, CEOs, Mexican Drug Cartel, Sex Traffickers. Barach Obama, Hillary Clinton, George Soros, Mitt Romney, Many Actors Including Tom Hanks, Oprah Winfery, Madonna, are said to be among them. I guess we will see in the next few weeks if it's true. But I have recently read articles that in the last week he has arrested 700 Mexican Drug Cartel members in the US. He has forced 1300 CEOs to step down in the last year. Tom Hanks, Oprah Winfery and others are possibly under arrest. The Navy Ships are here to arrest them and they will be recieving trials by Military Tribunal from trying to take over America. It sounds crazy, but as I research I wonder if it's really true.
  4. Because they failed to keep their trust in the Lord through it. God is teaching His children and this world is the School. God thinks in terms of eternity and we think in terms of this life. The sacrifices made in this life for the Lord will pay off HUGE for eternity. Did you know that not only does God want to save you Mark, but He wants to make you ROYALTY with Him in Heaven? A Co-Inheritor with Christ. Christians will rule and reign with Him over His creation for all of eternity. Paul saw Heaven and He said that the trials of this life are nothing compared to the Glory which shall be revealed in us.
  5. It's interesting because I have a friend named Mike who was a lot like you. Mike is an engineer at Ford. He is a smart guy. He would talk to me for hours about this stuff, but couldn't make the jump to become a Christian. I prayed for that man for a long time. Both of his parents got cancer and died within 6 months of each other. He became very bitter at God. He began to blaspheme God. Then one day he said to me "If I become a Christian, do I have to agree with everything you believe?" I said "No"! Then He prayed a prayer, placing His faith in Jesus Christ for salvation as he believed in his heart that Jesus Christ died and rose again, shedding His blood as a Sacrifice for His sins. Then he came to me a couple of months later and said "Before I didn't really like God, but now I think He is pretty cool". Then today I talked to him and told him, the reason that you see God differently is because you became His child when you placed your faith in Christ. His whole view of God changed. Mark, you seem to be a lot like my friend Mike. You need to come to the point where you give God a chance and see that He is real and that you will finally be at peace with Him.
  6. God is in control. He is using this situation to bring many in America and around the world closer to Him. I just read an article that 73,000 Muslims became Christian in one day! Only God HImself could do something like that. I truly believe that when we are through with this Corona virus thing, that things will get even better for us than they were before it happened. God is working in this. Blessings from Frodo Baggins in Bag End, Hobbiton.
  7. I will visit that thread if it means that much to you. What am I supposed to do once I am there? If it will help others I will go. Blessings.
  8. This Is Great News! 73000 Muslims Convert To Christianity In One Day! https://www.ambassadorofgrace.com/2020/03/while-world-may-seem-to-be-in-turmoil.html?fbclid=IwAR358OF6wZ2tHiqnyAVhWH-rHleQNP7kf0JqOS1Q9km6zdiXxwWmw6kGSBE#.XnlRxOd5v3Z.facebook
  9. Yes let's pray that God will keep us all safe during this trying time.
  10. Real Eyes Realize Real Lies
  11. It means that I don't tend to go to other threads very much because this thread is my primary reason for being here. Why not get them to come here? Or perhaps I will visit there when I get time.
  12. Ha Ha Ha
  13. Tell them to come to this thread and discuss it. I am sort of tethered to this thread.
  14. It's toilet paper.
  15. And yet he doesn't know the first thing about the Bible if he says ignorant things like that. He clearly recieved his knowledge from a Liberal Unversity that doesn't understand the Bible. It's easy to refute him. He doesn't even understand that the one verse is referring to the physical body and the other one is referring to the Spirit and the Soul. So, how could he be so ignorant of the Scriptures with a degree like that?
  16. You are getting your insights from people who don't know what they are talking about. Men do return to the dust of the earth physically when they die. It is a fact. But there will be a time when all are resurrected physically, some to everlasting life and some to everlasting punishment. The idea of heaven and hell never evolved. God didn't fully reveal them to us until Christ. The Bible didn't evolve from any other religion. From Adam to Noah was only 3 Generations and they were contemporaries of each other. Noah was a contemporary of Abraham. Da 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. Re 20:11 ¶ And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. {hell: or, the grave} 14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.Re 19:20
  17. What are you going to do when you die without Christ and it's too late to change your mind?
  18. With all that's going on in the world, what better time to draw close unto God? Please read this first post and invite Christ to be your Lord as you pray that prayer at the bottom of it from your heart in Faith, giving your life to Him.
  19. There was 1 or 2 small passages that were left out in the older manuscripts than in the Textus Receptus that don't change any doctrine or meaning to the Word. There is a debate as to which manuscript is the correct one. Some say that the older ones were corrupt which is why they were in perfect shape. They argue that because they contained possibly added info, they weren't used but at that time, they refused to destroy them because they were the Word of God. The other side says that the TR was the corrupt ones because they were copied 1200 years later. Besides those 2 small areas, they are essentially the same from what I gather.
  20. That's not true. They were good quality manuscripts, but they weren't the oldest which is why other versions used older ones. It was the Textus Receptus.
  21. Most of the world isn't saved according to Christ: Jesus said: Mt 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
  22. I think Liberals are capable of being Christians, but they are twisted up in their relativist thinking. They can't come to logical conclusions because they don't believe in absolutes. I can say that the only way a Liberal or anyone else can be saved is by placing their Faith in Christ and believing in their heart that Jesus Christ died and rose again, shedding His blood as a Sacrifice for their sins. The Liberal Christians I know don't believe that the Bible is literally true and the events contained inside of it. They tend to believe that all paths go to heaven and many other heresies. I am not God and cannot judge a man's heart, but I don't understand how a Liberal could reject the entire Bible and then Believe in the Gospel Literally.
  23. Wiki is a Liberal and unreliable source as it pertains to Christian issues because they are completely biased in favor of the Liberal position. Judaism did NOT evolve from any other religion.
