Yet what is even more appalling is that an inquiry about Jesus todayamong those who call themselves evangelicals (Bible-believing Christians)too often reveals "another Jesus".
What is the simple truth that is taught in the Bible?
Everyone has sinned.
We must be perfect to get into Heaven.
Jesus Christ came to earth as the Son of God.
He lived a perfect, sinless life.
He allowed Himself to be captured and crucified.
He arose again from the dead and is alive in Heaven today.
To get to Heaven we must asked Jesus to save us. Until we dothat, we are separated from the Savior and blocked fromHeaven.
How do we get saved?
By praying something like this. Of course, we must sincerely believewhat we are praying. Consider it a vow.
Dear God:I am a sinner.Others have sinned greater than I have. But, nevertheless, I stand before you now as a lost sinner, deserving of Hell. I choose to believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God whobecame a man.
