    The Gospel of Salvation -- The Good News of Jesus Christ:

    Plain and Simple, according to the Holy Scriptures

    If you have any questions or comments, please E-Mail me at [email protected]

    I welcome any and all questions, comments, concerns, doubts, criticism, whatever.

    In the beginning, God (The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit) created all things, including Adam and Eve.

    God created Adam and Eve completely perfect with no sin at all.

    God told Adam and Eve not to eat the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil (or even touch it according to Eve), and that the punishment for this sin would be death (spiritual and physical).

    The word "sin" simply means doing something that God has said is wrong. Sin can also be failing to do what God says is right.

    God determined that anyone who sins for any reason deserves death and eternal separation from Him because He is infinitely Holy and infinitely Just.

    Satan (an angel who hates God and rebelled against Him), deceived Eve, so Eve ate the fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, and then, so did Adam. Adam and Eve did this because they did not believe God should be the One who tells them what is right and what is wrong, and because they wanted to be like God, in fact they wanted to be gods, and they wanted to rule themselves.

    So, every human that has been born on the earth (except Jesus Christ), has inherited sinful nature, corruption, and death from Adam and Eve.

    All humans have sinned, therefore, all humans die.

    God's punishment for sin (any sin at all) is death and eternal separation from God in Hell.

    No human can possibly earn salvation.

    So, God The Son took the initiative, because He loves humans so much, even fallen, sinful corrupted humans like us, and He came to earth as Jesus Christ (100% Human and 100% God), and He paid the penalty for OUR sins.

    Jesus Christ willingly suffered and died a horribly painful death on the Cross FOR OUR SINS.

    At that moment in time on the Cross, when Jesus willingly offered Himself as a Sacrifice to His Father, God The Father then imputed each and every one of our sins that we will ever commit into the Human Body of Jesus Christ. The Father then punished Jesus with the punishment that each one of us should have received (separation from God The Father).

    Jesus Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose from the dead on the third day.

    If you repent of your sins [hate your sins], and believe with all of your mind, heart, soul, and spirit that Jesus Christ is your Lord, your Savior, and the Son of God, and that He died for YOUR sins, and was resurrected for your justification, then will be saved and you will go to Heaven (at death or at the Rapture, whichever comes first) to live with Jesus Christ forever and ever.

    You cannot be saved by doing any amount of "good works". You cannot earn salvation. It is a free gift of God, by the grace [undeserved kindness] of the Lord Jesus through your faith in Him.

    May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you with the Truth!

    John 3:16: For God so loved the world that He gave His Only-Begotten Son so that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.

    More or less all true, but sounds like a rather typical trite little born again speel, like the ones spouted by the local street preachers.

    Undisfellowship You got it right. The truth is so simple its hard for some people to accept. The bible also saids You must be born again to be saved.John 3:3.You can not see the kingdom of God.It is so sad that people fell for lies told by WT and cannot accept truth from Bible. Gods Word. We do have free will its up to us to choose.We are either for Jesus or against him.Its also amazing how the name JESUS CHRIST causes so much hatred from people. A man who lived over 2000 yrs causes so much hatred. Jesus did say he was hated and his followers will be hated. So prophecy is being fulfilled. Just remember Jesus is knocking at your door you have to open that door and let him in. Thanks undisfellowship for your posting God bless you

    Typical? The truth does tend to be consistent.

    Why should we believe this to be the word of God in the first place? Why was a vindictive, jealous, warring God that was described in the Old Testament, referred to as a God of love in the New Testament? A book full of contradictions, myths and superstitions and I must believe it to be the word of God? These are a few questions I have had that have never been answered satisfactorily.

    Thanks UD and how have you been?!!! I am not around much lately but I am always happy to read your posts.

    It is silly to me though when people see God (OT) as a big meanie and Christ as a lovely teddy bear. This is not an accurate view of Christ at all. God is just, and demands obedience and always has. The people who see Christ as some milk-toast are not reading their bible. He will repay. He never tolerated disobedience and He will return with reward and punishment. He aint messin...

    Um, that's milquetoast for you folks who don't read your dictionary, a cartoon character created in the mid 1930s. Try to get it right.

    The gospel is made up of all the opinions of all the people of who ever read it all put together.

    Excuse me, ma'am, but do you believe the words typical and consistent are synonomous? Bradley

    Undisfellowshipped, do you and your fellow street corner preachers actually believe that there is a single person in the western world who has not heard the 'message of Jebus' yet?

    Is there a coffee can we can drop some money in or can we just leave a bottle of Night Train by your feet?

    There have been a lot of you street preachers here lately. I can't wait until winter comes so you guys can stay in your mission shelters and we can get back to some more intelligent fighting. This is getting so repetitive.

    I have a few questions. If Adam and Eve were the first humans and were perfect and without sin, and the tree of knowledge opened their eyes to good and evil. What was the evil that happened before Adam and Eve and who was doing it before they ate the banana? The bunny rabbits? Or, was it the dinosaurs? Or the trees or rocks? I'll bet it was those damn dinosaurs, and because of that god killed them all. I'll bet they were having sex without being married weren't they? Where the animals born perfect and without sin like Adam and Eve? Can animals sin or just us humans? Could Animals eat from the tree of knowledge too and be doomed to extinction? That's it, isn't it, the dinosaurs ate from the same tree and that's why they all died.

    God should have put up a sign on the tree, "fruit kills." Personally I'm never eating fruit again!

    The bible is sooooo interesting.


    Moral of the bible: If a snake walks up to you and starts talking, run like hell.
