The hidden half of domestic violence

How to have eternal life


ONE WAY!

Many years ago, when I was in the 8th grade, we went on a field trip
to capital of the state I was in at the time. The driver of the bus
was also our drivers ed teacher for the small country school. Almost
all of the students were from this small town. Many were never in a
large city.

At one point, we all got in the bus while in the city to go to
another point of interest. Since I was from a big city, I noticed
very quickly as the driver turned down a street that all the cars
were parked in the same direction....the "opposite" direction from
the way were were going. We were going the wrong direction on a one
way street.

This could have had some disastrous results had there been cars
coming from the other direction.

We have hear of those that get on the expressway via an EXIT ramp.
Often there is panic as dozens and maybe hundreds of cars swerve to
avoid the car going in the wrong direction. Often it is because the
driver is confused or under the influence of things they should not
be under. This trip in the wrong direction often has fatal results,
not only for the one going in the wrong direction, but for others
too.

My friend, we often see those that try to post in our groups that are
going in the wrong direction. We can not allow anyone to give you a
road map that places you on the "interstate" via the exit ramp.

There are those that believe that even by going the wrong way, they
can get to where they are going.

My friend, even a small error can have fatal results. Planes have
gotten off course and crashed because they were off by only a degree.
This means that if they flew a mile, they would be off course by
only few feet. No problem. Or IS IT? Suppose they were flying 1000
miles? This could keep them from seeing their airport, their safe
haven as they run out of fuel. Many think that Amelia Earhart was a
victim of being off course by a very small degree.

We know these errors of going the "wrong way" when there is only one
way will affect human lives. But my friend, there is another way that
if we go the wrong way, it will effect us for all eternity.

We will be exploring this for a few moments.

Many are critical of us for believing that other religions will be
lost. They say we have no "tolerance" Many believe that as long as
one believes in God no matter what they call Him, they will be OK.
They believe that "Allah" or Buddha or a host of others will get them
eternal life...but WILL IT?

John 14:6 tells us "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth,
and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Notice carefully. BUT BY ME...JESUS. NO ONE can have eternal life
apart from trusting in JESUS CHRIST...the Christ of the Bible.

Now hear this carefully...even believing in Jesus will not get you
eternal life...if HE is NOT the Christ of the Bible.

John 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins:
for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

Jesus Christ is NOT satan's brother as some believe. HE is NOT an
angle as others believe. He is NOT just a human, nor is He just a
prophet or merely a good teacher. HE was and IS God incarnate.

According to the verse above, if we do not believe that, we can not
have eternal life...for Jesus literally said unless we believe that He
is the Great I AM...the same I AM from Exodus 3:14, we will die while
we are still in sin.

Exodus 3:14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said,
Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me
unto you.

Oh I know, many will call me vain, and say I am not tolerate of
others views and that as long as we believe in God, we will be
OK...but my friend...that is a lie from the father of lies. Read the
verse above again. JESUS said it...not me.

My friend. To the best of my knowledge, EVERY religion save
one...tells us we need to be good to have eternal life. Everyone save
one tells us we have to work to deserve it. Can you guess which one?

My friend, every religion I know of tells us that we have to clean up
our act before we can be accepted by whatever god they
serve....everyone save one...can you guess which one?

Every religion save one has a founder who has died and is in a grave
somewhere....everyone save one...which one is that my friend?

YES that ONE in each situation and so many more is CHRISTIANITY.

Oh not the form of it that so many have...but true Christianity.

You see, there is so much secular history that shows Jesus is exactly
who He said He was. We have history from non religious sources that
show Jesus did rise from the dead. NO ONE contested that fact. Oh
yes, some said HE was only raised as a sprit, but JESUS said that it
was His BODY that was alive once again. This one point alone could
take pages. However, the fact that the EMPTY TOMB was declared only
miles away from this tomb, the fact that it would have been easy to
stop this new "religion" in its tracks by producing the body of its
founder...Jesus Christ is all the proof I need to believe it.

ONE WAY....JESUS CHRIST. ONE PRICE His death on the cross of Calvary.
My friend, I did also mention that Christianity is the only religion
that declares we can not earn salvation. We are often told we have to
be "good" That our good has to outweigh our bad. Can it ever be good
enough? Lets look for a moment what GOD says is good enough.
Psalm 5:4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness:
neither shall evil dwell with thee.

Have you ever stolen anything? Lied to someone? Lied to yourself? God
considers that evil my friend and we can not dwell with HIM.

Revelation 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing
that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a
lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

It does not matter what sin you commit...the price is the
same...eternal separation from God. Oh...be sure the present payment
for sin may be more severe for some then for others. If I lie to
someone, I may lose a friend, but If I murder this person, not only
do I lose the friend, but I may well lose my life. Still the bottom
line is that ALL sin separates us from God. ONE sin no matter how
small results in our need for a savior.

There IS one way we can pay for our sin...and ONLY own way. We can
chose to pay for it our self by rejecting GOD's payment. OUR price?
Eternal separation from God...that is forever my friend...not a year
or ten thousand years...but forever. Most other religions do teach
some sort of self payment for sin. It is not true for there is only
ONE WAY to have our sin paid for and not be separated from God.

James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in
one point, he is guilty of all.

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

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is
eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

ONE WAY! JESUS....all other ways lead you the wrong way on a one way
street. aahh my friend...God allows U TURNS. In fact, He demands it
for that is what the term repentance means...to turn around. We have
to change our mind of what we "think" will pay for our sin to what
WILL pay for sin...the blood of Jesus. The greatest stain cleanser in
all time for that blood will take our sin stained heart and make it
whiter then snow.

Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD:
though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;
though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Counting on earning your way by doing more good then bad? That will
not work for lets see what God thinks of our good works.

Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our
righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and
our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

Wow...all the good we can possibly do is counted as not just rags,
but filthy rags.

ONE WAY...JESUS...for remember the 2nd part of Romans 6:23 above said:
"but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."


2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no
sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

My friend, there is only one road map to travel through life. It is
the word of the Living God...the BIBLE. Showing the reason the Bible
is the Word of God would take several of these messages, but it works
my friend. It works because of the Empty tomb once again. It works
because it does go against human reasoning. It works...because it is
the ONLY way...the ONE WAY...to have eternal life.

THIS is why the moderators in our partnership groups will not allow
links to sites that promote any other way. We will not be responsible
for anyone going the wrong way on this one way highway.

We do not ask you to take our word for it anymore then we ask you to
take your spiritual leaders word...for we are told to question our
leaders to make sure they are teaching us right. There are many false
teachers out there. Many call themselves "Christians" Often they say
they are "Sprit filled Christians...but they are still teaching error.
How do we know truth from error? WE... YOU and I are ultimately
responsible to study, to to search the BIBLE to detect error, If we
know the TRUTH, error will be much easier to spot.

Most of our born again Christians only know as much about the Bible
as they hear in church. THIS is why so many false believes are in our
groups. We do not ask you to believe us.. we do not ask you to
believe anything but the Word of GOD.

I URGE YOU to search the Bible for the TRUTH.

My friend, if you do not know...really know beyond a doubt that YOU
have eternal life. If you have been going the wrong way on this one
way street called life...STOP....and turn around. Anchor Your soul to
the HAVEN of REST.

I urge you to read the Word of God to see for yourself. If you do not
have a copy, here are a couple of on line Bibles for your use. I
suggest you start with the Gospel of John for it was written for the
purpose that we may know we have eternal life.

John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is
the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life
through his name.
