With so many people all around the world believing many different paths to heaven, especially Christians, it is essential to be able to discern the truth. It can only be through a complete dedication to the Word of God that we can find the truth.

I was brought up in a strict Christian family and doctrine but had cause to question alot of the teachings I was brought up with. So as well as searching for many opinions I read the bible through and the new testament several times.

I came to the following conclusions:

It is crucial to Love - 1 John 3:18-19

It is crucial to forgive - Mark 11:25-26

It is crucial to live a moral life - Galations 5:19-21

It is crucial to have faith - John 3:16

It is crucial to be baptised - Mark 16:16

It is crucial to recieve the Holy Spirit - Romans 8:9

Evidence of the Holy Spirit is by a sound - John 3:8

That sound is Speaking in Tongues - Acts 2:4, Acts 10, Acts 19

That there is only one gospel: Galations 1:6-8

I have spoken to hundreds of religious people including pastors and preachers. I discard anything that cannot be difinitively proved through scripture. I think that there are alot of ideas in modern christianity that aren't scriptural but are people's ideas. However well meaning a person maybe, if they do not tell you the truth they are leading you astray.

Joh 4:23 says,

But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. For the Father also seeks such, the ones worshiping Him.
Joh 4:24 God is a spirit, and the ones worshiping Him must worship in spirit and truth.

The Truth is essential and ultimately simple as are my statements above. I happy to be challenged on these points but only with scriptures please.
