My Dear Friend,
You need to be saved. Your sin has separated you from:


The Knowledge of God
The Fear of God
The Desire to know God.

You have been afraid to think about spiritual things very much because you are uncertain as to what is truth. Even though it is popular in some minds to dismiss the existence of God, all one has to do is look around to realize that there must be something or someone out there who has put this thing together.

  It is not uncommon to see the fallacies in most religions. The followers of those religions normally expect more of other people than they do of themselves.

FIRST:

 You need to consider whether or not the Bible is truly a word from God.
Of all the books in the world, only about 3 claim to come from God. The Bible, The Koran and the book of Mormon. There are some others where the writer claims to have been visited by supernatural phenomena. Those writings fail most of the time with a little research into their claims. The Holy Bible is the only book that stands the tests of every science. History proves the Bible. Geology proves the Bible. Anthropology proves the Bible. Geography proves the Bible Chemistry proves the Bible. Astronomy proves the Bible. The Bible proves Theology.
  Foolish and ignorant people quote, "The Bible is full of contradictions!" But everyone who has set out to prove that quote with varying courses of study, have returned the verdict that the Bible is indeed the very "Word of God!" You will find people of every strata of education or social class who have believed the Bible and followed its Christ. No one who truly looks into the Bible, turns away unto unbelief.
  The Bible assures us that it is from God and we are told within its pages that there has never been.... is not now.... and never will be any other written word of God for man. Jesus Christ is the visible revelation of the Word of God. The Bible truly is the Word of God!
 

SECOND:

 You need to look at yourself and the world in which you live. Is there no end to the wicked acts of people. No matter who you are or what you have done, you must admit that some people have no compunction or barriers to their behaviour. You cannot deny that it gets worse every day. What keeps everyone from lying through their teeth every time they open their mouth (many do!)? Why do you lock your doors? What purpose do fences serve? Why do we have police? Why do we have prisons? An honest answer to these questions will admit to the depravity of humans... in other words their inability to do right morally and are lacking something in their nature.
  The correct answer is what God has said in the Bible, "All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God." Rom 3:23
Sin is inherant in every person and there is no remedy in any religion, societal order or philosophy of any age. It cannot be cured. Drugs prescribed or illegal makes it worse. Sin has to be washed away.
  The worse sin you or I have is our sin against a Holy God. We know what he wants of us. We know that nothing or no one else will solve the problem. We run from Him. We reject Him.
Everyday we live, we get farther and farther away from "getting things right!" Even when we try to make things right, we make a bigger mess. Many just give up trying.
  The Bible says the first step to "right" is just admit to God that you are a sinner and you now realize that you can do nothing about it by yourself.

THIRD:

The Bible does warn the wicked of impending judgement upon unrepentant people.
Why would God judge anyone? Because he has gone to the limit to provide a way for people to be forgiven of and freed from their sin. He gave Jesus, His only begotton son, to come to the earth and die on the cross. The very blood of Jesus became the only thing that would cleanse sinners such as you and I. People who trod under foot the blood of Christ simply ignore or reject what God has done. John 1:10-13 God is not willing that any perish, but that all would come to repentence. 2 Peter 3:9 The Bible clearly tells us that there is no other name given that will save us. Acts 4:12
There is more information in the Bible about the place of the wicked and unbelievers than there is about Heaven. Jesus told us the story of one man who went to hell. Luke 16:19-31 if one man went then others certainly will follow! There is a verse in Revelation 21:8 that says that the people who go to the lake of fire include liars and fearful and unbelievers. That description takes up a lot of territory. Jesus said that the road to destruction was broad and many will go therein, but the road to eternal life was narrow.Matthew 7:13,14 Which road are you on right now?

FOURTH:

If you have read this far... you probably are interested in God's Plan.
If this is true! I have wonderful news for you.
YOU can be saved from your sin right where you are.... right now!

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Jesus Loves You enough to go to the Cross for you!


 

Tell God with your voice that you are sorry for your sin!
 
Tell God how thankful you are that He gave Jesus, His Son for your sin!
 
Tell God that you are glad that Jesus rose from the grave to give eternal life!
 
Ask God to save your soul now and for all eternity in the Name of Jesus!
 

Sample Prayer

In the tenth chapter of Romans of the Bible you can read the following words that will assure you that if you followed the above statements of faith from your heart then God has indeed saved you from your sin. It is no longer a barrier between you and Him. He has forgiven your sin and given you eternal life. You are now on your way to Heaven.

10:9 That 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.
10:10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
10:11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
10:12 ∂ For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

If you have just received Jesus as your personal saviour, would you write me and let me know? dsmetts@dsmetts.us So that I can pray for you and perhaps help you find a good Bible believing Church in your town.

John 1:10-13 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Luke 16:19-31 19 There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day: 20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores, 21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich manís table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abrahamís bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; 23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. 24 And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. 25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. 27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my fatherís house: 28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. 29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. 30 And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. 31 And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
