Taking a trip down this Logic Trail may reveal just who you are… don’t believe it? .. give it a try.
Do you believe that the Bible is the Word of God, or that it is possible it is the Word of God?
Do you believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?
If the Bible says there is only one way that something can happen, is that true, or could there be other ways?
What comes to your mind when you hear or see the word ‘Lord’?
(1) a fancy title or person holding the title or
(2) someone in total control of another person(s)
Choose 1 or 2.
Do you believe that going ‘through’ Jesus is the ONLY way to establish your relationship with God the Father?
Does ‘receiving’ Jesus –
(1) Make you a child of God and guarantee your place in heaven?
(2) Open the door and provide the power needed to become a child of God?
You may want to read; or John 1:12 before answering.
Which sins are paid for by the blood of Jesus shed on the cross?
(1) All sins, for everyone – past, present and future or
(2) Sins committed by people OF the ‘world’ ?
Do you know about the woman who broke the alabaster flask of valuable oil and then poured it all over Jesus?
Since youknow what Jesus said about this woman and her actions, can a ‘this gospel’ message be preached without what she did being told?
Is ‘being’ a christian ..
(1) relying on a one time action then trusting that is all you have to do; or
(2) living out a process of learning how to be obedient to God?
Before you confirm your answer of #1 please take the time to read the following scriptures: Jn 1:29 ; Mt 6:12; 6:14; 18:35 (as refers to vs. 23-34); and Lk 11:4. [It is clear to me that with the death on the cross Jesus paid the price for every sin of the world. Then Jesus’s teaching in Mt chapter 18 clearly reveals that God handles sin differently for those in His family. In fact it is such an important point that He taught us to remind ourselves of the new ‘rules’ for forgiveness of sins as a child of God every day as we pray the way He taught us to pray.]
CONGRATULATIONS! If you have truthfully navigated your way down the logic trail and ended up here, let me say I am glad you are my brother/sister in Christ. In fact I would love to get the opportunity to tell you how excited I am that you are out there. If you would like to send me an email to introduce yourself I would be more than pleased! Feel free to refer others to this logic trail in the hopes that it may just clear some points that are in the Bible that do not often get talked about, but in fact are vital points about our relationship with Jesus and God the Father.
Thank you again, and God Bless You.
Let’s start by saying that you ARE NOT a child of God (you may be a potential Child of God), the creator of the universe. Also, according to the Bible since you are not a child of God it makes you a servant of Satan, no matter what else you may think, the truth in the Bible determines our final end. I can only hope that you will have opportunity to change your thinking and thereby escape the end that is currently your destiny.
If you think this answer is bogus, go back to the top and explore the ‘other answers’ you could have given, you may find the Bible actually SAYS something different from what you were taught.
