Some biblical facts regarding God's grace. The gospel (good news) is a result of God's grace (Gal. 1: 6-9). Grace is presented as sufficient and Christians are called by grace (2 Cor. 12: 7-10, Gal. 1: 15). Man is saved by grace, the heart is established by grace, and we are justified by Grace..(Eph. 2: 5, 8, Heb. 13: 9, Tit. 3: 7).

There are so many Religious Forums on here that does not tell people that God Loves them. They don't tell people that once they accept Jesus Christ as their Savior they receive the FREE gift of salvation. They don't tell people that once they accept Jesus Christ that they become a new person. They don't tell people that Jesus died for the sins of the World over 2000 years ago and once you accept and Believe Jesus Christ, ALL your sins are forgiven..YES, ALL your sins..Past, Future AND present. Jesus died to set us Free from condemnation and guilt. Nobody is telling people What Jesus has DONE..They only want to tell people how bad they are and what they Have to do to receive Salvation..Jesus already paid for our sins. He paid the sin debt in full and wants to offer people a free gift. All you have to do is reach out and recieve it. We are under Grace..Not the Old Mosaic Covenant of Law. God isn't looking for behavior medification...He wants Life Transformation!!!!!!!!!!

Grace versus merit. The scriptures reveal that not only are grace and merit not coexistent, they are mutually excluding. Salvation cannot simultaneously be by grace and works (merit), Paul argues (Rom. 11: 6). If man could merit his salvation, God's grace would not be requisite (Rom. 4: 1 ff., Eph. 2: 8-18). However, the Bible truth that grace and merit are incompatible does not mean man is passive in the matter of enjoying God's grace (the scriptures, as seen, do not teach universal salvation - such would inevitably be the case if man were passive and God active because God is not willing that any perish, 2 Pet. 3: 9). "For by grace are ye saved through faith," explained Paul, "and that not of yourselves: it is a gift of God…" (Eph. 2: 8). Grace is God's part, faith is man's responsibility. However, faith or belief itself is a work (Jn. 6: 29). Faith is not meritorious but a "work of God." Faith, saving faith, is always active and obedient (Jas. 2: 19-26).

Contrary to what most of us have heard in church for years, attempting to follow the law is not intended to make us closer to God. Rather, it's to show us just how far away we are from Him. That's why there were all those rules and rituals for offerings and sacrifices in which blood had to be shed. They demonstrated the severity of the consequences of our sins. The penalty of sin is death and nothing less.

The law was established to shame and condemn us by pointing out our faults, our guilt, our sins. It is supposed to stop us from bragging about how good we are and to show us how desperately we need God's mercy. The law's goal is to break through our stubborn pride and lead us to Jesus Christ for salvation.

Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God. Therefore no one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin.(Romans 3:19-20)
Before this faith came, we were held prisoners by the law, locked up until faith should be revealed. So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith. Now that faith has come, we are no longer under the supervision of the law.(Galatians 3:23-25)

Buddha was an awesome philosopher, as far as worshipping a man goes, he'd be a good pick :-)

You know what else doesn't cost anything? Reading the Bible and praying to The Lord in the name of Jesus.

I suppose all those Buddhist seminars are free? No, they're not.

Even the Indian who skypes Jesus wants money as do most of the Freethinker New Age be Your own god sites.

Every religion has factions who will want to take advantage of your faith and want money.

Every religion has factions and churches that do no such thing.

Mans' real problem is not his sinfulness and need for forgiveness. Since the time of Adam, man has inherited the tendency to not trust God –to sin. And with every man's sin came every man's spiritual death. "There is no one righteous, not even one;" "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:10, 23) Mans' critical need is life –spiritual life. God has provided a permanent solution to the problem of sin and He offers eternal life to all who will receive it. On the cross, Christ paid for all of those sins for all of us –yet God still holds everyone accountable for one thing. The single, deadly, unpardonable, unforgivable sin is not believing in His Son. "Believing in Him" means trusting Him for life in the hereafter and also relying on Him for life in the here-and-now. The world's sin is described in chapter 16 of John and it is the only obstacle blocking a perfect relationship between man and God...Thank God for Jesus.
