I made up a couple of sayings (not at the same time) a couple of years back. They go as follows...

It doesn't have to be perfect. Good is good enough.

...and...

Deal with tomorrow when tomorrow becomes today.

Saying...

Perhaps not to instruct
but to inspire.

Hi guys.

I don't know where to post this, but the Lord has been laying it on my heart for the past few days to tell people about Jesus. This burden is so strong that I have felt sick and very desperate to reach out to others and tell them about Jesus. I asked my Pastor if there were any ministries I could do through my church to serve God, but all he said to me was that if there was anything, he'd let me know. God has been driving me to serve Him so bad that I don't think I can wait much longer for an answer from my Pastor, I am desperate here and I don't think he understands just how urgent it is to witness to the lost. People are dying and going to Hell. That is no laughing matter.

So I am going to write a post and witness to the lost on here...

Dear person much loved by the Lord,

Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners like you and me. Have you ever thought about what happens after you die? I have. It has brought me much anxiety thinking about it, because I know that this life does not last forever and one day, we all will die.

A lot of people today do not think about where they will spend eternity, and this thinking is a big mistake.

But what happens after death? The Bible is the only book that can tell us what happens to us after we die. God Himself wrote this great book; it is probably the most important book that was ever written.

Do you mind if I quote some Scriptures? Some people get offended when I quote the Bible, but I never do. Do you know why? Because I am a Christian and I believe that Jesus is my Saviour. The Bible says so. And with that being said, I will give you some Bible verses to help you and educate you.

So what happens after we die? The Bible teaches that man is a tripart being composed of spirit, soul, and a fleshly body. At death, our souls separate from our body and goes back to God to be judged by Him. God will judge everything we do in the body, whether good or bad.

But here is the bad news. You see, nobody is truly a good person. You see, only God is truly good.

Have you ever told a lie? Have you ever stolen anything? Have you ever hated anyone? If you have, then you have sinned. Killing others is also a sin, and yet you hear every day on the news that someone has murdered somebody else. Why? Because mankind are sinners and on their way to a burning Hell.

Rom 3:23 :
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Now that you know that no one is good in God's eyes, how do we then become good? How do we become vindicated before God? The Bible teaches that we need to have Jesus' righteousness but the only way to do that is to come to Him by faith:

Rom 10:9
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.

Rom 10:10
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

So you see that you need to believe in your heart that God raised up Jesus from the dead, and you also need to confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is the Lord.

If you die without Christ, you will spend eternity in Hell. In our modern world today, people think that Hell is a place of never-ending parties and good times. They think that all of their friends will be there. But that is far from the truth. You would think that these people have never read the Bible, or that they have never taken it seriously.

The Bible teaches that Hell is a place of never-ending fire and torment, and my dear friend, that is not very much fun (this truth has scared a lot of people). It is a place of tears and no hope. It is darkness and loneliness. You won't be able to see anyone at all. It is eternal separation from God Himself. Since God is the Source of Joy and Happiness, that means that everything apart from Him is tears, sorrow, and no happiness. And that does not sound like very much fun at all, doesn't it?

So my dear friend, for your own eternal safety, I pray that you will accept Jesus Christ into your heart today, and make Him Lord over your life.

If you have done this, you need to find a Bible-believing church where you can grow in God's Word. And you also need to find out what God wants you to do with your life, so that you may serve Him.

Blessings,
Jacqueline

It's so transparent when someone joins this forum and immediately posts fear-based lectures. It's not just transparent, it's tiresome. It's evident that people who have the need to preach and convert are frightened, insecure and utterly lacking in respect for others.

These people are biblicans, not Christians. Christians follow the teachings of Jesus, with no need to cherry-pick the bible. They also have no desire to convert others.

Lastly, this made me literally LOL:

Hello Jacqueline55,

Sorry to hear that you are not feeling all that great.

We are all Christians, as our first names are our Christian names.

God is a Christian too, because God's first name is God.

May read further of your writings.

Hope you have a good day and are not too troubled on this Wednesday.

j

I am Christian but I know in my heart that I will reincarnate many times over and work my way to spiritual perfection by working through my karma.
Hell is a state/place in the far distant future ages when some people have refused all opportunities to follow God.
By saying there is only one life and then you go to heaven or hell engenders enormous fear which is not a good motive or incentive for soul and spirit transformation.
Each individual has participated in every age and culture throughout the worlds history. Each of these periods allows us to develop new spiritual faculties (or not) and this will go on for ages to come.
It makes no sense to me that you have 70 or 80 years to reach perfection in the glory of God.
For every immoral deed we engender karma of which we experience the consequences and are responsible for putting right.
This means we can take personal responsibility for our behaviour and put it right if we do this out of love.
