Behold, now is ‘the acceptable time,’ behold, now [today] is ‘the day of salvation‘.” – 2 Corinthians 6:2

GOD, HUMANITY AND SIN

Many people do not realize that the Holy Bible is actually “God’s Love Story” for mankind (humankind for the modernists).

The information provided on this page can help you understand how we “got here”: why we are today in this situation of a sinful fallen world, with death, destruction, disease, famines, wars, lying, cheating, stealing, murder, killing and other sinful behavior and misery all around us.

You will also read who our hope is: Jesus Christ the one true and living God, the Lord our Savior. This is the Jesus of Nazareth. Christ is not His last name. Christ means “Messiah” or “Anointed One” (by God). I have listed some helpful verses to read as you go. These verses are by no means meant to be exhaustive, but they form a very good starting point as you go along.

Contrary to many peoples’ beliefs, becoming a Christian doesn’t mean you abandon your reason, logic and intellect and just “blindly believe in faith” in Jesus. You should come to that decision to accept Jesus as your Lord after evaluating facts and evidence on which to base that decision.

In fact, the evidence given in the Bible would far supersede the “beyond a reasonable doubt” burden of proof that is required by a jury in a modern court of law to arrive at a consensus verdict, even in the most severe of capital crimes! You are being asked to make an informed decision based on documented evidence, historical proof and facts, eye witnesses and testimonies thereof (many), etc.. It is by reviewing all available information that you can then make an informed, logical, rational decision to accept Jesus Christ as truth and life, and your God and Lord, if you so choose.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” – Genesis 1:1

GOD’S CREATION

  • In the Beginning. Realize that there is a Creator, the Lord (God) of Hosts, who created heaven and earth and all things in it (and you). He created it in seven (7) literal days. The earth and life did not just randomly “evolve” out of a sea of goo over millions of years with a lightning strike as the evolutionists would have you believe. The truth is that God literally “spoke” the universe, earth, and you and I into existence! Simply by speaking His Word. That should make you stop and really wonder what a big and great God He is. Imagine the awesomeness and power in such a statement. This is the one God from eternity past to eternity future. He is omnipotent, omnipresent, and all knowing. He is not bound by our concept of “time”. [See: Genesis 1:1, Genesis 1:26-27, Genesis 2:18-22, Genesis 2:1-2, Psalm 24:1, Psalm 89:1, Psalm 104:24, Psalm 33:9, Hebrews 11:3, Romans 3:4-5 (speaks to the evolution hoax/deception/lie), Psalm 90:1-4, Isaiah 57:14, John 4:24]
  • God’s Creation. Realize that God’s initial creation was perfect and sinless. There was no disease, sin or death. For God is holy, perfect, righteous and just! And God is love! What we see today is not what was initially created. In fact, we can see a mere glimpse of what initial creation was like, as if looking through a dark dimly lit veil through this fallen world. [See: Genesis 1:31, Isaiah 6:3, Revelation 4:8, 1 John 4:8, Psalm 102:12, Isaiah 40:28, Habakkuk 1:12, Revelation 1:8, Psalm 90:2, 1 Chronicles 16:34, Psalm 103:17, Psalm 117:2, Psalm 19:1, Proverbs 8:23, 2 Corinthians 4:18, 2 Corinthians 5:7, Romans 8:19-23]
  • Man Disobeyed God. Realize that it was by the direct disobedience of man in the Garden of Eden that we as a race of humans became sinners (all) it is that sinful nature that separates us from God, who is holy, perfect, just and sinless. When Adam (after Eve) deliberately chose to eat the fruit from the one forbidden tree of the knowledge of good and evil, we as a race became sinful, and dominion of the earth was deeded over to Satan, the devil, ruler of this world. God will also judge all sinners and the world on the last day of judgment. [See: Genesis 2:15-17, Genesis 3:1-19, Isaiah 64:6, Romans 3:10-18, Romans 1:20-21, Jeremiah 17:9, Ephesians 6:12, Luke 12:3, Ecclesiastes 12:14, 2 Peter 3:5-7, Ephesians 2:1-2, Isaiah 66:16, 2 Chronicles 16:9, 1 Thessalonians 5:2-4, Revelation 22:20]
  • So We are All Sinners. Many ask (as did I): “Why am I being held responsible for Adam and Eve’s choice to sin a long long time ago?!”…but really, I ask you to honestly evaluate your own life. Have you EVER lied, cheated, stolen, deceived, hurt someone, etc, etc, etc….? These are all acts of a sinner. Be honest with yourself; it’s not Adam who is to blame for your sins you chose to do (as did I). Therefore, genuinely and honestly realize that you’re a sinner too, and it is this sin which separates you from God right now. The penalty for sinning against God is death. Therefore, fear the Lord, for He will judge all sin on the great day of judgment! Fear doesn’t mean to be afraid of God; it means respect, honor, worship in awe, and to obey and trust in the Lord. For He is Lord over all, from eternity past to eternity future. And know that He will judge all sin on the coming day of Judgment. No-one who has ever lived, past, present or future, will escape that judgment! [See: Romans 5:12, Romans 3:23, Romans 3:10-12, Romans 6:23, Galatians 6:7-9, Matthew 7:13-14, Proverbs 9:10, Mark 13:31, Psalm 9:7, Psalm 7:11, Psalm 50:4, Psalm 50:6, Psalm 76:8-9, Psalm 94:2, Jude 1:14b-15, Isaiah 33:22, Isaiah 66:16, Hebrews 10:31, 2 Peter 3:3-10, Revelation 1:8, Revelation 22:20]
  • The Coming Day of Judgment. God will also judge all sinners and the world on the last day of judgment. All the deeds of man, over all of history, will be made known and judged. God will judge motives as well as actions. Everything whispered in the dark will be shouted from the rooftops in blinding light. This Day of Judgment will happen SIMULTANEOUSLY with Christ’s next return (His 2nd Coming).  There is no further warnings to be given. There will be no “secret rapture” of the church first, followed by a “7 year great tribulation” period during which you will have time to finally decide to repent and accept Christ.  There is no “The Anti-Christ” person that we are waiting to appear first. There is no mystical “Mark of the Beast” waiting to happen (it has and is already happening). In fact, there are NO MORE EVENTS LEFT in Bible Prophecy remaining to unfold before Christ returns! Be not deceived by the wolves and false teachers which abound in every direction on every side about this! They will lead you to destruction as it is written. Jesus will appear with all His angels in flaming fire visible to everyone on earth to see. As in the days of Noah, there will be no further prior warning; in the days of Noah, Noah preached the coming judgment – they did not listen. It is exactly the same today – we are preaching the coming judgment. Let him who has ears to hear, hear! [See: Genesis 2:15-17, Genesis 3:1-19, Isaiah 64:6, Romans 3:10-18, Romans 1:20-21, Jeremiah 17:9, Ephesians 6:12, Luke 12:3, Ecclesiastes 12:14, 2 Peter 3:5-7, Ephesians 2:1-2, Isaiah 66:16, 2 Chronicles 16:9, 1 Thessalonians 5:2-4, Revelation 22:20]

You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.” – Jeremiah 29:13

OUR HOPE

  • But Jesus Came to Save Us. You can only be saved from the coming judgment by God by someone paying your penalty for sin, which is death. You cannot pay it yourself, as that’s simply not possible. There’s nothing anyone can “do” to “achieve” or “work” or “be good enough” or “be religious enough” or “be spiritual enough” to be called righteous and holy in God’s eyes, as you will stand before Him on Judgment Day. Even one teesny tiny little sin you’ve ever done has separated you from God. On Judgment Day, you must be able to stand righteous and sinless/blameless before God on that day; nothing sinful can enter into heaven. But God desires that we all have eternal life; for He desires that none be lost in judgment! This is because God loves you. So He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to die for your sins, to pay the penalty for your sins, so God’s justice on sin can be satisfied for you. This is what Jesus has provided a way for – allowing you to stand in His perfect righteousness in front of God. You “put on” Jesus’s holy, sinless, blameless righteousness by believing in Him. Amazing! So you will be clothed in His righteousness! Jesus offers this as a free gift to all who come to Him and believe in Him. [See: Luke 11:9-10, John 1:1-14, 1 Peter 1:20-21, Isaiah 9:6, Matthew 1:18-23, John 1:29, John 1:32-33, Matthew 3:16-17, John 3:16-21, John 10:30, John 8:58, Colossians 1:15-16, John 14:9b-11, John 5:39-47, Matthew 18:18-20, John 14:6, John 11:25-26, Matthew 17:5, Hebrews 13:8, Acts 4:11-12, Romans 3:21-26, Ephesians 2:8-10, 2 Corinthians 5:17-19, Romans 10:9-10, Matthew 10:32-33, Romans 1:16-17, Ephesians 2:1-2, Hebrews 2:14-15, Philippians 2:8-11, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Peter 1:18-19, John 19:1-3, John 19:17-19, 1 Peter 3:18, Romans 5:6-8, Hebrews 10:11-13, John 3:14-15, John 5:19, 1 Timothy 2:5-6, 1 John 2:1-2, Psalm 103:6-14, 1 Corinthians 15:45-49, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Luke 24:5-7, 1 Corinthians 15:14-17, John 14:1-3, Acts 1:9-11, 1 Timothy 3:16, 1 Corinthians 15:20-28, Ephesians 1:19b-21, Hebrews 1:1-13, 1 Corinthians 6:19b-20a]
  • The “Good News” of the Gospel. God offers the gift of eternal life to all who believe and verbally confess Jesus of Nazareth, the only begotten Son of God (the Christ, or God’s anointed one, the Messiah) as your Lord and Savior – this Jesus that was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and died for your sins on the cross paying your debt of sin (death) and raised to eternal life again after 3 days. “The way” to eternal life is through your professed belief in Jesus as Lord, your confession and repentance of your sins, your being baptized, obeying Christ’s commands as written in the New Testament, and persevering in faith until death. [See: Luke 11:9-10, John 1:1-14, 1 Peter 1:20-21, Isaiah 9:6, Matthew 1:18-23, John 1:29, John 1:32-33, Matthew 3:16-17, John 3:16-21, John 10:30, John 8:58, Colossians 1:15-16, John 14:9b-11, John 5:39-47, Matthew 18:18-20, John 14:6, John 11:25-26, Hebrews 13:8, Acts 4:11-12, Romans 3:21-26, Ephesians 2:8-10, 2 Corinthians 5:17-19, Romans 10:9-10, Matthew 10:32-33, Romans 1:16-17, Ephesians 2:1-2, Hebrews 2:14-15, Philippians 2:8-11, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Peter 1:18-19, John 19:1-3, John 19:17-19, 1 Peter 3:18, Romans 5:6-8, Hebrews 10:11-13, John 3:14-15, John 5:19, 1 Timothy 2:5-6, 1 John 2:1-2, Psalm 103:6-14, 1 Corinthians 15:45-49, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Luke 24:5-7, 1 Corinthians 15:14-17, John 14:1-3, Acts 1:9-11, 1 Timothy 3:16, 1 Corinthians 15:20-28, Ephesians 1:19b-21, Hebrews 1:1-13]

Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.’” – John 14:6

HOW TO BE SAVED (BECOMING A CHRISTIAN)

Contrary to popular belief (and even the teachings of many “Christian” pastors), you are not saved by simply saying a magical set of words (called the “sinners’ prayer”) that you say once and then somehow are magically saved forever, without anything more involved.

In fact, coming to accept and verbalize Christ is simply one component of salvation. Christianity isn’t a one time little prayer…sure it often starts that way, in an instant, when you see and decide to accept the truth of Christ…but Christianity is a way of life until death.

The elements involved in true Christian salvation are:

  • Belief in Christ
  • Confession (verbally)
  • Repentance
  • Baptism (by immersion in water)
  • Obedience to the commands of Christ (as given in the New Testament, not the 10 commandments), and
  • Perseverance in faith (even in the face of trials and tribulations unto death)
  • Believe in Jesus Christ as Lord. To receive this free gift, all you have to do is believe in Jesus: that He was who He said he was (the Son of God, and also God Himself), that He did what He said He did, and that He will do what He said He will do. This is called putting your faith, trust and hope in Jesus, and only in Jesus alone! Religion, ceremonies, idols, schemes of man (e.g. Popery), good works, none of that will get you into heaven. You can be saved by grace through faith, not of works, lest any man boast. [See: Luke 11:9-10, John 1:1-14, 1 Peter 1:20-21, Isaiah 9:6, Matthew 1:18-23, John 1:29, John 1:32-33, Matthew 3:16-17, John 3:16-21, John 10:30, John 8:58, Colossians 1:15-16, John 14:9b-11, John 5:39-47, Matthew 18:18-20, John 14:6, John 11:25-26, Acts 4:11-12, Romans 3:21-26, Ephesians 2:8-10, 2 Corinthians 5:17-19, Romans 10:9-10, Matthew 10:32-33, Romans 1:16-17, Hebrews 2:14-15, Philippians 2:8-11, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 1 Peter 1:18-19, John 19:1-3, John 19:17-19, 1 Peter 3:18, Romans 5:6-8, Hebrews 10:11-13, John 3:14-15, 1 John 2:1-2, Psalm 103:6-14, 1 Corinthians 15:45-49, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Luke 24:5-7, 1 Corinthians 15:14-17, John 14:1-3, Acts 1:9-11, 1 Timothy 3:16, 1 Corinthians 15:20-28, Ephesians 1:19b-21, Hebrews 1:1-13]
  • Confess Jesus Christ as Lord. Verbalizing Christ as your Lord and Savior is necessary for salvation. You will often be asked to do this at your baptism, which is great, but the command goes beyond that, as it is written: “If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.” [See: Romans 10:9-10, Matthew 10:32, Luke 12:8]
  • Repent of your Sins. Genuinely and sincerely repent of your sins – repent means to turn away from/stop doing sinful behavior. You will be able to do this now by the power of Jesus, who lives in you. Sins come in many kinds. Repenting of your sins usually starts at the instant you confess Christ the first time, but then lasts over a lifetime with the avoidance of deliberate and continued sinful behavior. [See: Matthew 4:17, John 3:3, John 3:5-8, Hebrews 10:26-27, 1 John 1:9, Psalm 103:12]
  • Be Baptized. Be baptized (by immersion in water) for the forgiveness of your sins. [See: Mark 16:16, 1 Peter 3:21, Acts 10:48, Acts 22:16, Colossians 2:12, Galatians 3:27, Luke 3:21-22, Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 8:36-38]
  • Welcome New Brother or Sister in Christ! You have now been “born again”! This is also referred to as walking in “the way” of Jesus. You now live in Christ, and He lives in you. You have been sealed by the Holy Spirit. You are now also reconciled again to God, through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus’s death, and through obedience to Christ. Atonement means making reparations, payment for sins, reconciled with God. [See: 1 Peter 1:23, John 3:1-14, 2 Corinthians 5:17]

Note: We are not advocating a “salvation by works” here, which is what most will claim (falsely); we are simply telling you what the Bible says in very clear words and commands. You cannot simply pick some verses while ignoring others; this is what many do. A perfect example is Mark 16:16, which says: “He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved.” People try to weasel word this verse, ignore it, twist it’s words or pretend it doesn’t say exactly what it says! You cannot pick some verses about salvation and ignore others. They must be viewed together in aggregate unity which comprise the necessary conditions for true salvation.

It is true you are “saved by grace through faith and not of works, lest any man should boast”! Of that we heartily agree and say amen! We are simply indicating that true saving faith (by the grace of God) then is confirmed throughout your life as a Christian by good works, Christian attitudes and behavior, producing real fruit (through good works) and loving God and loving others. [See: James 2:14-17]

We do also disagree strongly with the “once saved, always saved” cliche that is often told. I used to believe that – but it is a false teaching. The Bible is abundantly clear on the need for perseverance in faith even unto death. You can “turn back” after you profess faith, you can “depart” from the faith and you can be “lead astray” by false teachers! That’s why the Bible is so full of admonitions to persevere in faith and warnings about false teachers/teachings. It is clearly written: “So then, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your salvation with fear and trembling.” And it is written: “Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble; for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you”. [ See: Philippians 2:12, 1 Timothy 4:1, Hebrews 6:4-6, 2 Corinthians 11:3, Hebrews 3:12-19, 2 Peter 2:20-22, Romans 11:19-22, Matthew 24:10-13, Revelation 3:11, James 1:12, 1 Timothy 4:16, 1 Corinthians 9:27, Hebrews 10:39, 2 Peter 1:10-11, 1 Thessalonians 3:8, Mark 4:17]

Friends, it is this exact “working out of your salvation in fear and trembling” that you do daily as you die to self each day (by “taking up the cross”) during the course of your life that SHOWS you are saved! And with “fear and trembling” doesn’t mean to be afraid (i.e. literally trembling, etc.); in fact, we are called to be bold and courageous as Christians! Fear means to respect and honor God, obey Him and not man, seek His wisdom not the world’s wisdom, value eternal things over material things, and to glorify Him in what you do and how you live, etc. This is why Jesus specifically said: “‘If you love me, keep my commands.'” – John 14:15. [See: Galatians 2:20, John 14:15, Matthew 16:24-26, Philippians 2:20, Joshua 1:9, Proverbs 28:1, Ephesians 3:11-12, 2 Corinthians 3:4, 2 Corinthians 13:5, 1 Corinthians 10:12, Acts 5:29, Hebrews 13:6, Hebrews 10:19, 2 Timothy 4:7-8, Mark 4:17]

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing.” – 2 Timothy 4:7-8

WALKING IN “THE WAY” OF A CHRISTIAN

There are other very real and clearly defined conditions as written in the Bible. The conditions for salvation are: belief, acceptance, verbally confessing Christ, repentance, baptism, obedience and perseverance! You cannot omit any of those conditions and meet the criteria that the Bible gives for being saved (truly born again). Some of these happen very quickly and instantly, while others occur over an extended period of your life (e.g. obedience, perseverance) as you are being “sanctified” (set apart, made to conform to the image of Christ).

  • Learn and Obey Christ’s Commands. It’s not enough to simply say you are a Christian now, you must also learn and obey Jesus commands/instructions of the New Testament. You do this by reading and studying the Bible. Genuine faith results in good works and results. Faith without works is dead! Contrary to popular opinion (and false teachings), this is not “salvation by works”; this is actually following the commands of Jesus, who said those who love Him obey his commands! Also, be sure to read and learn from what other saints who have gone before you have written also so you are NOT lead astray again; use discernment in who you believe as many who claim to be Christians are really fake, imposters, wolves in sheep’s clothing! [See: 2 Timothy 3:16-17, Romans 15:4, Matthew 22:37-40, John 8:31-32, John 8:51, John 14:23, Luke 9:23-26, Matthew 7:15-20, Matthew 7:24-28, Galatians 5:17-21, Romans 7:15, 2 Corinthians 11:14-15, Matthew 24:23-25, 2 Peter 3:3, Proverbs 11:14, Proverbs 27:17, John 8:32, Acts 5:29, James 2:14-17, James 2:16]
  • Produce Fruit (Good Works). Other people should be able to tell you are now a Christian by your fruit (your works, kindness and love for others) and your new spirit of Christ (gentleness, patience, caring, giving, etc…).
  • Persevere in Faith. You must persist in your faith even unto death: through good times and times of hardship, tribulation and persecution even unto death if that’s where it leads – and He (Jesus) will lift you up on the last day (the day of Judgment) and give you eternal life in heaven with Him (a crown of life), just as He rose from the dead 3 days after being crucified on the cross. [See: 2 Timothy 4:1-8, John 15:18-19, John 16:33, Romans 14:8, Hebrews 10:23-25, Matthew 7:21-23, Philippians 1:6, Philippians 3:20, Romans 8:31, 1 Corinthians 7:23, Philippians 4:13]

For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.” – John 6:40

AVOID FALSE PROPHETS/TEACHERS WHO LEAD MANY TO DESTRUCTION!

As you walk in the way of a Christian (or even before) you will be exposed to many many lies, false teachings and misinterpretations of Scripture. In fact, you’ve already been exposed to many of these lies, propaganda and conditioning, starting all the way from your earliest childhood! I’ve compiled a list of the main ones so you can be aware. There are literally hundreds of such “snares/traps” laid by man (some even well meaning) who fail to properly divide (understand, interpret) the Word of God.

  • Avoid False Prophets and Teachings. Now this item is of extreme importance and very difficult to do. The schemes, myths, snares, traps and false-teachings of man abound, in nearly every direction as far as the eye can see. Beware! Be not deceived. How are you not deceived? You must read the Bible, and learn how to read the Bible correctly. For the interpretation of Scripture is not up to private interpretation of each person, nor their guesswork or supposition. As a Christian, you are called to rightly divide the word of truth. [See: 2 Peter 1:20, 2 Timothy 2:15, Ezekiel 13:9, Jeremiah 23:16, Matthew 24:24, 2 Timothy 4:3-4, Acts 20:28-30, 2 Peter 3:16-17, 1 John 4:1-3, Matthew 7:15-20, Titus 1:9-10, 2 Peter 2:1-3, Matthew 23:2-3, 2 Peter 3:3, 1 Timothy 4:1, 2 Corinthians 11:13-15, Matthew 24:11, Deuteronomy 18:20, Jeremiah 23:1-40, Jeremiah 14:14, Jeremiah 5:30-31, Galatians 1:6-9, John 8:44, Matthew 7:21, 1 Corinthians 14:13, Revelation 3:9, Revelation 19:20, Psalm 91:3]

“For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified.” – Romans 8:29-30

Amen! Maranatha!

  • Go and Tell Others. Now go and tell others of this gospel (which means good news) message of salvation through Jesus Christ! This is one of the commandments of Jesus. [See: Matthew 28:16-20, Mark 16:15, Daniel 12:3, Romans 1:16, Matthew 24:14]

And He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.’” – Mark 16:15

“Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done.” – Revelation 22:12

If you’re like me, you have thousands of questions, doubts, etc. about all this, right? How can the Bible possibly be true? Is there really a God? What about evolution? What about the dinosaurs? What about {fill in the blank here}. You’re not alone my friend! I was just like you (possibly worse). I’ve started this site to help others coming to search for answers and truth, amidst a veritable worldwide sea of lies, fraud, tricks, and deception in nearly every direction you look, even from the so called “religious experts”, etc…so keep reading 🙂



Do you have questions about Jesus, Christianity, religion in general? Do you have doubts about all this “religious stuff”?

  • Does God really exist?
  • How could the Bible possibly be true?
  • Aren’t there many paths to God?
  • Why does God allow evil and suffering?
  • Why are we being punished for Adam’s sin 6000 years ago?
  • Who is Jesus?
  • Was Jesus a real person?
  • Was Jesus really God?
  • Is there really a “devil” and “hell”?

I had many questions and lingering doubts, even after I was saved. That is normal, everyone has them. Don’t be afraid of them. Tackle them head-on and make informed decisions for yourself, not decisions based on speculation, myths or “popular opinion” or “what the crowd believes”. After all, it’s YOUR eternal destiny at stake, and nothing less!

Are you confused by evolution vs. creation? You were taught evolution in school, so it has to be true, right?

  • How can the Bible’s account of a literal 7-day creation by God possibly be true? Doesn’t science prove it wrong?
  • Isn’t the Earth “millions of years old”?
  • What about the dinosaurs?
  • Didn’t we evolve by chance or “lightning striking some primordial goo” puddle millions of years ago?
  • Didn’t we “evolve” from apes?

The answer to all of these is: no! Many Christian scientists have information that “other scientists” just don’t like, or want to hear. So that information is suppressed (or ignored) in schools. As a physicist myself, I struggled mightily with many of these questions for years! Read more with an open mind about all this stuff?

You’re a new believer in Jesus Christ? But now, what do you do next? Where do you start? Who do you follow?

  • What church should I go to?
  • What Bible should I get?
  • How do I read the Bible?
  • Why so many church denominations?
  • How can I possibly understand the Bible, it’s so difficult to read?
  • What about all the church and pastor sex and money scandals?
  • What about pastors having million dollar jets and promise me riches?

A new believer is faced with many choices and decisions. In this section I’m going to write out what has worked (and not worked) for me. I’m not a pastor, I’m simply a believer and brother in Christ as the one true and living God and my LORD. Maybe some of the things that I have struggled with and things I’ve learned along the way can help you also.

Genesis: 1:1,8

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth...Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness."

Romans 5:12

Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned.

Romans 3:23

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Isaiah 9:6-7

For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this.

Luke 2:10-11

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

John 3:16-20

“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. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed."

John 14:6

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me."

“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Romans 10:9

If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Revelation 22:10-11

And he said to me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near. Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and the one who is holy, still keep himself holy.”

Revelation 21:11-15

Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

“Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
