Have you thanked JesusToday?
What's wrong with the first two of these statements?
     They suggest that you won't enjoy your life if you honor God. Nothing could be farther from the truth! Jesus said, "The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. (John 10:10 NKJ) The Bible also says, "Delight yourself in the LORD and He will give you the desires of your heart". (Ps 37:4 NIV) and  "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jer 29:11 NIV)
    There are 155 references to "joy" in the NKJV bible 214 in the NIV version here are just a few:
"For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit". (
Rom 14:17 NIV)
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." (
Rom 15:13 NIV)
  "I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete." (John
15:11 NIV)
"The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field." (Matt
13:44 NIV)

If Christians are supposed to be so joyful why does it seem like there are so few that are? Things haven't changed a lot since Jesus time. Unfortunately more people are living to impress other people with their religiosity and not living to impress Jesus. (Not that he can be impressed he knows our heart anyway!)
Jesus said, "Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in heaven. Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly." (
Matt 6:1-4 NKJ)

Who then can I put my trust in?
There is no one living on the face of this earth at this moment, including the writer of this page, that will not let you down or disappoint you in some way. Jesus, who came to earth as a man, died on the cross to pay the price for our sins and rose again is the only one who won't let you down.

But how do I contact Him?
God said in the old testament: "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." (
Jer 29:13 NIV)
And in the new testament Jesus said "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened." (
Matt 7:7-8 NKJ)

Isn't God a big enough God to not mind if I credit the creation of the world to someone (or something) else?
    Suppose there was a girl (I am telling this from a man's point of view, so reverse the sexes if you're a woman) you were deeply in love with. So you bought her a brand new Maserati, put a big bow on it, attached a big card to it, and parked it in her driveway. Then someone who didn't like you took off that card and put one with his signature on it. Wouldn't it make you angry? Then you tried to tell her that you really bought her the car, but she wouldn't believe you. She became so enamored with his supposed generosity that she gave all her affection to him and eventually ended up marrying him. Then he treated her shamefully, like a slave all of her life. Wouldn't that make YOU angry! God created this world for our benefit, and then even more than that, he came to earth as a man and died and rose again to pay the price for our sins. Doesn't he at least deserve a thank you!!!!!!! He deserves more than a thank you!! He deserves thanks and praise and worship!!!! For he is the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings forever and ever!!! Amen

Didn't we all come from primordial soup?
No!!! Spontaneous generation (living things coming from non living things) was disproved by Louis Pasteur in the 1800's. It is an accepted rule in Biology that has never been disproved. Life only comes from life. It does not spontaneously generate. "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being." (
Gen 2:7 NKJ)

What about evolution?
Evolution is a religion not a science. It cannot be proven in a laboratory. Though there have been variations within a species there has been no new species ever seen to evolve from another species.

What about fossils?

Fossils are proof that the world wide flood talked about in Genesis 6-9 is true.

If God is so good why does he allow so much evil ?
Because He did not make a bunch of robots but gives each person freedom of choice to do good or evil. Jesus told a story about a man who planted good seed in his field:
    Jesus told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat, and went away. When the wheat sprouted and formed heads, then the weeds also appeared. The owner's servants came to him and said, 'Sir, didn't you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?' 'An enemy did this,' he replied. The servants asked him, 'Do you want us to go and pull them up?' 'No,' he answered, 'because while you are pulling the weeds, you may root up the wheat with them.  Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.'" Matt 13:24-30 (NIV)

"Then he left the crowd and went into the house. His disciples came to him and said, 'Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.' He answered, 'The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear."
Matt 13:36-43 (NIV)
So God does allow evil to exist until the end when he will right all wrongs.

I've lead a fairly good life will I go to heaven ?
Good depends on who you compare yourself to. We can always find some better and worse than ourselves, but God's standard is himself, or in other words, perfection. Who can stand a chance? The Bible says:
"for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God," Rom 3:23 (NIV) and
 "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Rom 6:23 (NIV)

How then can I be good enough to  get to Heaven ?
You can't! There is no way you can be good enough to earn your way into heaven. Salvation is a free gift:
 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16 (NIV)

What about those who have never heard the Gospel or had access to the Gospel?
The bible says:
"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." (
Jer 29:13 NIV)
For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities-- his eternal power and divine nature-- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Rom 1:20 NIV)
"That servant who knows his master's will and does not get ready or does not do what his master wants will be beaten with many blows. But the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. (
Luke 12:47-48 NIV)

How then can I be saved?
Rom 10:9-11 says, "that if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the Scripture says, 'Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.'" (NIV)

Is it true that may roads lead to the same destination? Or that many religions will get us to heaven?
 In John 14:6 Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
The Bible also says:
 "For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus," 1 Tim 2:5 5 (NIV)

So how then do I become a Christian?
It is so simple that it is almost too easy! Confess to God that you're a sinner and that you need his forgiveness. Believe that His death on the cross and resurrection paid the penalty for our sins, and ask Jesus to make you born again, for Jesus said:
  "In reply Jesus declared, 'I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.'" John 3:3 (NIV) Then do not be ashamed of Him for He said:  "Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven. (Matt 10:32-33 NIV)

How do I maintain my relationship with God ?
Get a Bible and read it every day. Pray. Find some other believers and join a good Bible believing church and don't be ashamed to tell others about God's word. But most of all obey. For the Lord says to obey is better than sacrifice.
1 Sam 15:22-23 "And Samuel said, 'Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.'"  (KJV)

After I become a Christian will everything go perfectly and will I get rich ?
No and probably not. Jesus said: "Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also." John 15:20 (KJV)

But you will have a peace that will leave most of the world scratching their heads. Jesus said:
 "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." John 14:27 (NIV)
 He also said, "I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33 (NIV)

The Bible also says:
 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Rom 15:13 (NIV) "And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Phil 4:7 (NIV)

Can I become a Christian, so that I can get into heaven, and then live my life the same way as I always have?
You probably could. There are a lot of people who do that. But I believe they are some of the most miserable people on the planet. It is not fun living a double life. Jesus said:

"No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money."
Luke 16:13 (NIV) and
"So, because you are lukewarm-- neither hot nor cold-- I am about to spit you out of my mouth." Rev 3:16 (NIV)

And why would you want to? You cannot do better for yourself than what the Lord would desire for you. Jesus said:
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!" Matt 7:7-11 (NIV)
