Man’s Humanistic Reasoning
Isn’t God a God of love? He wouldn’t send a good person like me to Hell. I believe in God and Jesus and I do many good things for God. That should be enough to get me to Heaven.
God is a God of love. That is why Jesus was sent here to be crucified for our sins. If his death on the cross was not needed, then Jesus died on the cross for nothing, his disciples died for a lie and God made a big mistake to send his only begotten son to be sacrificed. Now why would Jesus, his disciples or anyone else knowingly die for a lie?
Welcome to WTL Ministry & Messengers
Our Mission and Purpose
For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. (Ephesians 4:12-16 - All from KJV)
Man is a sinner
by nature and by choice. The blood of man is poisoned by the sin of Adam and
Eve. Adam and Eve had been given a free choice and as you may know they chose
sin. The fulfillment of sin results in death and eternal damnation in
Hell. Heaven is a Holy and perfect place without sin or sorrow. Sin can not be
allowed into the presence of a Holy God, therefore if you have ever sinned and
have not received Christ in repentance as your Lord and Savior, then you are
unclean and are not worthy of Heaven. Jesus Christ is God. There was no sin
found in Jesus, therefore his blood sacrifice was pure and without blemish.
The blood of Jesus was sacrificed on the cross so that your personal sins could be forgiven. By accepting Jesus as your Savior, your sins can be forgiven, whereby God chooses to no longer remember your sins. The only way you can be made worthy of Heaven is to accept the perfect sinless blood of Jesus. If you refuse Jesus you are refusing life, just as Adam and Eve did. God loves you, but Satan the devil, the first liar and a murderer, persuades you to reject Christ each day until your death and hopelessness. Without the salvation of Christ, your soul will live on to experience permanent, everlasting torment and damnation in Hell, a place that God prepared for Satan and demons, the fallen Angels. If you have not received Christ in repentance, then you are lost and dead in your sins and trespasses against God.
Our good works will never pay for any of our sin. The reliance upon of our works for salvation will result in everlasting damnation. Only the perfect blood of Jesus Christ can forgive your sins.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” (Romans 3:23)
“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)
“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. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10)
"These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." (1 John 5:13)
