This is the
testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who
has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. 1
Who is the Son of God? The Jesus Christ the Lord.
What in the world are you talking about? Life?? got Life? - of course I've got life!! I am reading this aren't I ??
Do you have ZOE life? (that sounds new age-y! - strange...) The Greek word ZOE means eternal life. Eternal life means living an abundant life knowing the Living Lord God Almighty right here and now, and staying with Him every moment and on into eternity, which is forever and ever. Do you have this ZOE life? Yes or No?
Are you saying that the Lord God Almighty is a personal God? are you Crazy?? Are you saying that the Spirit God of all things actually relates with people on their level?? Yes > See www.NeedHope.Net
Jesus said, "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 Oh, sure,
I've heard this a ton of times. I am alive, God loves me, I know Jesus existed,
so I guess I have eternal life, right?
Jesus went on to say, "For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. 18Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. 19This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. 21But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God." John 3
What does it mean to "believed in the name of God's one and only Son"? It means you believe, trust in, adhere to, and comply with the character of God's Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. In the Bible, the word "Name" is equivalent to "Character of". SO, It does not mean that you only know of Jesus or know about Him, or decide to do good works for Him. (Matthew 7:21-23) Instead, your life reflects that you depend on, rely on, and totally give up your agenda for living for the One Holy God Almighty's purposes and will.
(got any advice for me on how to do this? Yes! www.NeedHope.Net. )
It sounds like I am condemned by God Almighty unless I get to know Jesus the Christ and start trusting Him more than I trust anyone else. (Psalm 78:21-22, Mark 16:16, John 5:38, John 6:47, John 11:25, John 14:1) Right.
How can I find our more facts about God and Jesus? See www.BillboardsforChrist.org LOOK on the side bar of that front page. (Who is God, Who is Jesus Christ, Who is the Holy Spirit, What is the Bible, Other topics,...)
But what if I don't bother right now? - What if you get hit by a car in an hour and die? Why put off Good News when you may be headed for hell fire forever and ever?? Is there really hell? Yes! See> HELL
I've heard you've got to be really good to get into heaven. Is that true? No But You have to be holy. What?? Don't pull a weird one on me!! - Being holy means being set apart for God's purpose. In order to get into heaven, you have to be His child and then the great adventure of life with the Lord Jesus begins!! Life is then not all fun, but it is all valuable.
How do I become God's child? You need to hate the wrong things you've said, done, thought, felt, and all of it. You need to tell them to the Lord God Almighty directly. You need to ask God to put your badness, or sin, onto His Son, Who already took the punishment, shame, condemnation, hate, and wrath of God that you deserve. (It's kind of like having a bank account worth millions in your name, but you never took out the money, so you aren't worth much. When you accept what Jesus, God's Son, did for you already on the cross, it is like owning the account He already prepared for you. Now it is yours. If you don't cash it, it's not yours.)
There is no way a Good God would want me. Wrong.
