Did you know that over 150,000 people die every day?

The counter above shows the estimated average number of people who have died since this counter was opened.

1. Why not tell a sinner about Gods love instead of judgment?

Answer: Imagine that I am a doctor, you are a patient. You have a terminal disease that I have a cure for, but you must be fully committed to the cure or it will not work. I would spend most of my time describing the symptoms of your disease and also the effect that it will have on your body, I would make sure that you saw the seriousness of your situation. Once you were convinced of the disease, then I could offer the cure. Now you are going to appreciate it, and appropriate it. Your knowledge of the disease and its consequences has made you desire the cure. The same is true with the disease of sin. Most people don’t think they have it. Don’t believe that? Ask someone if they are a “good” person and see what they say. Almost certainly they will say that they are. Even though Jesus said that there was none good but one, that is God. That is why we must use the Law to show someone their true state before God, that they have the disease of sin. It will make them desire the cure of His forgiveness, which in turn, magnifies His love for us, even though we are sinners.

2. Do you believe in eternal security?

Answer: Absolutely. Jesus said that no one would be able to pluck those out of His hand who were His. (John 10:28,29) But He also said there would be many on that day ( the day of judgment) that would call him Lord, but would be cast into hell. This, and other of Jesus’ teachings, show that there are true and false conversions (the sheep and the goats, the wheat and the tares, the good soil and stony ground, the good fish and bad fish) These are parables of things that are in the same place together. The sheep and goats were in the same flock. The good fish and bad fish were in the same net, etc. So the lesson here is that there is eternal security for those who are genuinely saved. For those who have come to a knowledge of their individual sin, seen the consequences and what Jesus did so we could avoid them, and accepted His payment on their behalf. These are the ones, who, “Put their hand to the plow and do not look back” For those who have not done this, but name the name of Jesus, they are false converts. It is not enough to simply believe in Jesus, there must be a repentance from sin (Luke 13:3). If you have never done this, please follow Paul’s admonition in 2 Corinthians 13:5, and examine yourself to make sure you are in the faith. Better now, than to be wrong on the day of judgment. For more information on this very important topic, please go to our "Resources for Christians" page, and listen to or watch the teaching by Ray Comfort called, “True and False Conversion”.

3. What about good works?

Answer: The Bible makes it clear that we are saved by “grace through faith, not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8,9) But very few people quote the next verse which tells us that “we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10) This, and other passages make it abundantly clear that we are saved to do good works, not the other way around. The flip side of that is to see “Christians” that have no good works, instead , their life mirrors that of the world. The Bible also makes it clear that we will know people “by their fruit”. The “True and False Conversion” teaching mentioned in the previous question will also help with this topic.

4. Why do Christians continue to sin?

Answer: Christians are still human flesh, and until we receive our glorified bodies in heaven, we will still struggle with the desires of the flesh. The difference is though, that a genuine convert will struggle. He wont give in to sin, but rather, he will fight against it through prayer and the daily feasting of God’s Holy Word. A true Christian may “fall” into sin, while a false convert will often “dive” into sin. The true convert has a new heart with new desires. A desire for righteousness, and to please the God who saved him from eternal damnation. When he sins, and he will, it is against his new desires, and he is convicted of what he has done. If you are living in sin, “diving” into the desires of your flesh, please examine yourself. The Bible says that God chastens those he loves (true converts) If you are not being chastened while living in sin, you are probably a false convert.

5. Why are there so many hypocrites in the church?

Answer: Jesus had 12 disciples, and one of them was a hypocrite. Not only that, he was a false convert. Judas was among the twelve, yet he didn’t know who Jesus truly was. If he did, there is no way he could have in his right mind betrayed Jesus for a mere 30 pieces of silver. The word “hypocrite” actually means “pretender”. And that is just what a false convert is, a pretender. They go to church, they know all the right verses, they can sing all the right songs, but they don’t really know who Jesus is. They have never come to a place of genuine repentance, and are therefore just going through the motions. They “worship God” on Sunday, but their lives show no evidence of true worship (obedience to His commands) Monday through Saturday. If Jesus had “hypocrites” in His group of closest followers, then it should not surprise us that there are many in the church today. The important thing is to make sure that you are a genuine convert, and not let other “hypocrites” keep you from obeying God’s commands.

6. Why cant people find God through other religions if they are

Answer: Jesus was the one who said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father but by me”. Now, either that is true, and there is no other way to God, or Jesus was lying, those are the only two options. We know that Jesus never sinned (1 Peter 2:22), so he couldn’t have been lying. Paul said there was “no other name under heaven, given among men, whereby we must be saved.” No other religion offers the forgiveness of sins. The Bible says that Jesus has the power to forgive sins (Matthew 9:6, Mark 2:10, Luke 5:21,24) That is why God can only be found through the blood of Christ.
