Okay, folks. Here it goes. I'm saying it NOW. I'm saying it before my right to say it is taken away.
There is only ONE path to Heaven. And that is through faith in Jesus Christ and His sacrifice on the cross!
ALL have sinned!
Have you ever lied? You sinned.
Committed adultery? You sinned.
Had sex in ANY form outside of marriage to a spouse of the opposite sex? You sinned. That includes gay sex, lesbian sex, goat sex, sex with a prostitute, sex with the easy girl down the street, sex in a group.
Dishonored your mother or father? You sinned.
Worshiped ANY god other than Jehovah God? You sinned.
Used Sunday (the Lord's Day) as yours and yours alone to do whatever you want with? You sinned.
Used God's name in vane....a disrespectful way or not truly addressing Him or speaking of Him in reverence? You sinned.
Killed any body? Young, old, useful or not, wanted or not, gay or straight? You sinned.
Have you ever stolen? From your employer, your neighbor, your family, a stranger, the store, the government? A nickel or a million. You sinned.
Ever been envious or jealous of anyone? Thought it should have been yours? Mumbled they didn't deserve it? You sinned.
You sinned. I sinned. Your sainted mother sinned. Your doctor sinned. Your spouse sinned. My children sin. Our fathers sinned.
God says we have all sinned and fallen short.
What brought this on? I went over to Carolyn's to read her recent post: Famine and earthquakes. I followed the trail of links. I read them all. I followed all of those links and read them all. I suggest you do the same.
And to our mutual problem? Sin? But don't despair!! There is Hope! And His name is Jesus. God's son who gave his life freely on the cross to pay the price for my sin, your sin, our sin.
"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." John 3:16 KJV
