To Be Saved From The Penalty Of Our Sins
We Must Become Spiritually Reborn!

The Bible teaches us that every person who has ever lived, except Jesus Christ, The Messiah, The Son of the living and holy, Jehovah God, is, or was, a sinner. Because God is perfect, He can not tolerate sin. His justice demands the punishment for sin to be, "banishment to an eternal life in Hell", which is a lake of burning sulfur, in which, those who go there will suffer immeasurable torment forever.  However, God loves us and does not want us to go to hell. So, He caused a Jewish lady by the name of Mary, a young women who had never had physical relations with any man, to become pregnant by the Holy Spirit of God. Her son was God's only son, Jesus, the promised Messiah of the Jewish people. It was God's plan that Jesus, the only sinless person, should die to pay the penalty for our sins so that we could be set free from our sins, and that is exactly what happened. There is more evidence to that truth than has ever been presented in any court of law in the history of mankind! (You can find at most any Christian bookstore, the books, "Evidence that demands a Verdict" and "More evidence that demands a verdict" both written by Josh McDowell. The publisher is Campus Crusade for Christ International. These two books, amongst an enormous compilation of other materials, describe in detail this wonderful truth!)

In brief, the Bible gives us four verses that tell the entire story:

John chapter 3, verse 16 & 17, KJV

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the World through him might be saved.

Romans chapter 10, verses 9 & 10, KJV

... if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

God has made the provision for us to escape the deserved penalty for our sins. His son Jesus paid the price for us with His death. In human terms it's as though a judge on earth had sentenced us to the electric chair, but someone else loved us so much that they died in that chair in our place. The difference is, even though some earthly person might do that for us, no one but Jesus is capable of keeping us out of Hell.

Since God has made this incredible provision for us to escape the just penalty of eternal suffering in Hell, He has demanded that we commit our lives to belief in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. He refers to this as being "saved" from the penalty of our sins. By committing our lives to Him in this way we are accepting His free gift of salvation. To reject that gift and become disobedient to God's requirement is to choose to go to Hell when we die. His written "Will" for our lives, The Old & New Testaments, The Bible, The Holy Scripture, further states that when we truly commit our lives to that belief, we become spiritually "reborn" and The Holy Spirit comes to indwell our lives. Literally, God's divine spirit then lives within us. This gives us the power to actually become sons and daughters of God.

The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus was the most wonderful event of human history. God sent His son to die for you and me, persons who deserve, because of our sin, to be in hell. Because Jesus was God in human flesh, he did not remain dead, but was raised from the grave three days after his death. He was then seen by hundreds of people for a period of 40 days before being caught up into Heaven where he has been ever since. The Bible further teaches that He is soon coming back to take up to Heaven, "In the twinkling of an eye", those who are looking for His coming. There, we who have committed our lives to belief in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, will live forever in that perfect environment where there will be no crying, no pain, no suffering, no wars, no starvation, no fighting, etc. and we will literally walk on streets of gold. Better yet, we will live forever with the one who loves us so much that He was willing to die for us the most hideous death a person could possibly experience, that of being nailed to and then left hanging on a cross of wood.

The person who has accepted God's free gift of salvation is then, and only then, prepared to know God. They have experienced "the new birth". They are Christians. They are those who are spiritually "born again". However, the sad fact remains that many Christians do not grow up in their faith. They remain spiritual babies. The Bible refers to them as those who must be fed only milk because they are unable to eat "The Meat of His Written Word, or Will". They further do not seek God "with all their heart, soul and mind". Therefore, they never get to really know God.

Is it not pitiful to see a person who physically is grown but who still acts like a child? We say, "How sad". How much greater a travesty it is when Christians remain as spiritual babies. Even worse, because some are so ignorant regarding God's written "Will", the Bible, they don't even realize they are babies. It is my concern for these persons that has caused me to develop this Web site.
