We have either arrived at this page because of a Google Search or someone has sent us here. Either way, we want to learn a few things about our standing before God and what our outcome might be.
We will try to keep it simple and understandable, excluding all the religious wording, and putting it in plain language. So here it is.
WHAT IS THE CHRISTIAN FAITH ALL ABOUT ANYWAY?
First of all, it is not about working hard to be good enough. It is about turning away from our sins and placing our trust in what Jesus did on the cross over 2000 years ago and continuing in that trust. We are not buying fire insurance to save us from Hell. We are entering into a relationship with the Creator of the Universe and walking with Him daily.
Many come to that “Born Again” experience and then no longer follow Jesus. In this case, it is like they are saying, “I got my ticket to Heaven, if I need you, Jesus, I will let you know.” Following Jesus is not behaving on Sunday and living like Hell the rest of the week. Jesus expects us to follow Him every day.
One might even say that I am doing better than the other guy. Or I never killed anyone. But in this case, we are using a standard of comparison to one another. Truthfully, the real standard of measurement is Jesus Christ. Jesus is the standard we have to live up to to get into Heaven. Only Jesus has ever achieved this standard of perfection. We all fall short of perfection. When we do this, it is called sin.
So what are we to do? For starters, please watch this video and see what we can learn.
