Lets talk Truth

Do you ever get tired of hearing this?.....

You believe one way and I believe another so lets just all get along. The tolerance speech, lets just all get along. It’s the tolerance that is destroying our nation. I bet Satan roars with laughter. He knows the truth, that there is only one way to God. That's why he laughs. We are so quick to buy into it and all he needs us to do is to be off the truth by a fraction. Which a large percentage of the world is. Although God would like to see all His creation come to the saving grace of the cross of Jesus Christ, a lot will not.

Matthew 7:14 says "narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it."

Few who find it..... Could some of this be our fault? I mean those of us that understand the truth. Are we doing everything we can to let people know the truth about Jesus Christ? Are we accepting the "tolerance speech", letting them "believe what they want" while we silently watch them go to hell?

The truth is the truth. You can try and slice it or dice it any way you like but it does not change that it is still the truth. Truth in the Webster dictionary is defined as the quality or state of being true, reality, fact. So a fact is a fact, just because we don't like it, does not mean we get to change it. Like the bible, it’s either all true or none of it is true. You can't pick and choose what you want from it. But guess what, it’s all true.

People get so upset when you mention the name of Jesus. "Leave us alone, we have our religion", they say. "We have our books and our prayers". To them I say, the thing you are worshipping is wrong and it will not save you from the pit of hell. I care, please listen to me. I don't say this for my sake, I say it for yours.

There is only one way to heaven, not many. That way is through the saving grace of Jesus Christ. In all other religions you have to perform certain things, prayers, etc and if you do enough, then HOPEFULLY you will make it to heaven. You can never "do good enough" your way in to heaven. We are never going to be good enough, God is holy, sinless. We would have to go our whole life without committing even one sin just to stand in His sight. That's just not possible for us to do. This is why we needed a savior. To take the penalty for sin, which is death and make a way to God. That happened when Jesus Christ came and died on the cross, then rose again on the third day. He defeated the penalty of death for us.

The gift of salvation He offers is free; you do not have to work for it. You need only to receive it.

This my friend, is the unchangeable truth.
