- Jesus is the only way to God. It is a life and death matter for eternity. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me”. This means the people that do not recognize Jesus and have salvation through Him are lost- Jews, atheists, foreign religions and Mormons. Catholics need to know –it is not by works of righteousness, but only by the grace of God. “Salvation is not a reward for the good we have done, so none of us can take any credit for it. Then what can we boast about doing to earn our salvation? Nothing at all. Why? Because our acquittal is not based on our good deeds: it is based on what Christ has done and our faith in Him”.
- Abortion is the murder of a human being. It is Americas’ Holocaust. The blood of millions of babies must be calling out to God. The sad fact is the majority of our citizens support this killing and it has weakened our opposition for euthanasia, suicide and yes, infanticide. Mothers deciding to kill their own baby before birth—unbelievable!
- God owns our bodies and is involved in our lives. The BIBLE tells us “Your own body does not belong to you. For God has brought you with a great price. So use every part of your body to give glory back to God, because He owns it”. This means we need to avoid sexual promiscuity and perversions. We cannot abuse our bodies with drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and our minds with obscenities and vulgarities. Scripture says “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs,…..Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or course joking, which is out of place….”.
- Belief in the authority and accuracy of the HOLY BIBLE is at an all time low. Many doubt the Creation account, the six 24 hour days and the early creation (6,000 years ago), believing in the evolutionary billions of year’s time frame and doubting the long years of early man’s life span and the universal Flood. Evolution is the atheistic attempt of man to avoid and reject God and His account of Creation. The evolutionist has concocted an unbelievable account of our origins. With no satisfactory explanation of any beginning nor how the life of an animal evolved into a human with a soul, the theory remains laughable. However we shouldn’t laugh too loud because most scientist and PhD’s believe this science fiction is really a law, like the law of gravity. “Yes, they know there is a God, but they wouldn’t worship Him as God or even give Him thanks.” Christians can’t choose what part of the Bible to believe or not believe. And why should they accept an unbelievable idea developed by atheists concerning our origins? We Christians need to head the scripture- “Don’t let anyone lead you astray with empty philosophy and high sounding nonsense that comes from human thinking…”Greene Hollowell
