Meticulous bible readings in Concord, NC

Dear Family in Jesus at Broadus,

      As you receive this, Easter will be on us or it may be past.  Regardless, a very important thing to remember about the sacrifice of Jesus, the Son of God, is what it accomplished in God’s eyes and what you believe about the event that took place for you.  That event poses a number of questions. When pondering them, remember you’ll have to decide for yourself; no one else will answer for your life, and your eternal destiny hangs on what you believe (your faith)!

      Did He die for everyone who has ever lived and for their sin?  Did He die for the sin acts or the sin nature you’re born with, or both? Did He die just to forgive you?  If He did, remember the blood of animals forgave in the Old Testament.  Did He die to cleanse you?  If so, of what?  Does He take all sin away?  Can you keep committing a sin that you like?  What about the things you say you can’t help?  Will all people be saved eventually because He died for the whole world, past, present and future?  Do you willfully sin? What about thoughts you have?  If He died to conquer death, are you waiting on death to fix you completely?  If so, why did He have to die, if death makes you right in the end?

      I could go on and on, but the question is:  What do you really believe and why, and can you prove your position of belief by Bible verses?

      Your eternal destination depends on it!!

      I’ll see you at the House!

I love you,

There would be no more school shootings if every spirit-filled, born-again believer in America would pray against it every morning before

schools take up!
