NOTE: There will be absolutely no fighting over this subject.
I am not posting this to start a blog war.
I simply want to know what you believe and why.
Judgment Free!

Anyone who starts mudslinging will have their
comment deleted and will enter into moderation hell,
which is the equivalent of being “grounded” on my blog.
Thank You!

Who died for me

The Way to Salvation December 15, 2008

People sure are looking for a lot of Jesus on the Internet these days. I’m not sure if it’s a picture they want. A video. A blog. Or more information.

The best place to look is the Bible. You can get that online. I also really like Got Questions a whole big oodles of bunches.

The basic way to salvation is this…

  1. Admit you’re a sinner in need of a Savior: In other words, you cannot get to heaven by being a “good” person. The good news is that God sent a Savior, Jesus Christ, to redeem us by dying on a cross for our sins and conquering death by rising again. Redemption.
  2. Turn from your sins and accept Jesus Christ, the Son of God, as your Savior: This is how you do that. You pray. So easy. Too easy. You say something like “God I am a sinner. I believe that You sent Christ Jesus to die for my sins. I am sorry that I have sinned and I don’t want to sin any longer. I need You to save me through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Please forgive me, change my heart, and come into my life. I surrender myself to You. Amen.” It needs to be sincere and heartfelt and a little prayer between you and God where you confess, repent, and accept His Son into your life.
  3. There is no #3. You’re done. Saved. Salvation.

Wasn’t that easy? If you did this you absolutely need to get yourself involved in a good, stable, Bible teaching church. I personally recommend one that is nondenominational esp if you’ve never been to church before. My even more personal preference is Calvary Chapel, but you start church shopping until you find one you like. You’ll know it, believe me, very soon after walking into the place.

It is very important that you start reading the Bible. Start in the New Testament so you won’t get discouraged. A favorite book of many is the Book of John. Whatever you do don’t start with Leviticus (Old Test) or Revelation (New Test). Heh. Save those for spiritual maturity. Trust me (seasoned Christians are now laughing b/c they knooooow I’m right).

Congratulations. Welcome to the family. Strap on your seatbelt because once you turn your life over to Christ some really super delicious and amazing things start to happen. First and foremost, your eyes will be opened in ways you never imagined. Life will be full and fuller. Oh it’s awesome being a Christian. What a freakin’ ride man!!! Wheeeee!

Did you say
this prayer or
one like it?
Tell me about it.
I would love to rejoice
right along with you.
