What is a Christian? These days it seems people just have to think they know Jesus and they are going to Heaven when they die. How many people truly know Jesus? Are you like most people that believe his most sacred holiday is his birthday? Do you think your past on loved ones are with Jesus, or are they spirits now watching over you? Do you read your Bible, or are you content to let someone else tell you what it says? Sadly, a lot of things told about Jesus are false. It’s your salvation; you can even listen to the Bible online anytime. Did Darwin strike the final blow and sway the world into believing in evolution? How sad is that? It is so easy to see nothing just happens. Apes were always apes, monkeys were always monkeys, and man has always been a man in the likeness of his Creator. If one is so inclined to open their own Bible, one finds that someone is telling lies. It’s not God. God only tells the truth, his Holy Bible is full of wisdom and truth the world knows nothing about.
If the Bible tells only the truth and warns to not add anything to it, why so many Christian churches? Most leaders of Christian churches are taught to teach what they teach at a school of doctrines. The focus is on a message geared to soothe and save your soul. They all tell some truth, but then they lead you to a place contrary to what you will learn reading your own Bible. Most truly enjoy this warm fuzzy tell you what you want to hear sermon. It’s clear to see the truth hurts people’s ears. It is the most rebelled against aspect of the Bible. There is a Biblical explanation for this. (Matthew 13:15). If you want to be confused, or brainwashed, keep attending your traditional Christian church. Please, read for yourself what God says to the churches of these end times in the book Revelation. A happy, singing church that’s so fun to attend just might be in for a huge surprise.
About going to Heaven, you hear it all the time. Don’t you want to go to Heaven my friend? Find the part where you die and go to Heaven in the Bible. Why do people say that then? They believe what they’ve been taught by someone they trusted, a person that was supposed to know the truth in the Bible. They might, but that’s not what they teach. It’s a personal journey to seek your Creator. Don’t you want to know for sure? Some or many think their dead loved ones are in Heaven or still close by in spirit. Try finding evidence in your Bible to back that information up. The Bible’s teaching is that the dead know nothing. The dead are at rest until they are resurrected, some to live with Jesus in the Kingdom of God for a thousand years, others to … well, it’s in your Bible if you care to know, read it! All of this valuable information is found throughout your Bible and in Revelation 20. It’s easy to see why so many are confused when they read the Bible, it never jives with what they hear. It’s so easy to end the confusion, just start reading. When you come to a part you don’t understand, look up the key words online. It’s a journey. Will it take long? Only the rest of your life, but it’s worth it. To seek and learn every single thing you can possibly know about God, is why you are here. Everything else is chasing after wind.
