Can A Person Still Be A “Good Person” Without Believing in God?

Oftentimes in our own human vanity, we think we can still be a “good” person, without having to believe in God.

We believe we are a “good” person by our own standards.

But honestly. Have you ever lied? Stolen anything? Sexually lusted after someone? Had sex outside of marriage? Worshipped any other gods (including money, celebrities, political figures, etc.) other than Jesus Christ? Said the Lord’s name in vain? Wanted something that belonged to someone else? Over-ate? Got Angry with or held a grudge against someone? Refused to give to the poor? Flat-out denied the existence of God? Hated someone? Etc?

We may think we are a good person by our “own” standards but according to God’s Word, we are not a “good” person, according to God’s standards.

The truth is, nobody is perfect. Not me, not any preacher of God, not ANY prophets of God. Not one. Except God. God is the ONLY perfect thing in this entire universe. Why? Because he made it.

And since God is perfect and WE are not, God doesn’t need US but WE need HIM! And God loves us SO MUCH that over 2,000 years ago, he put himself into human form (Jesus Christ) by means of a virgin birth and gave mankind the potential for the greatest gift EVER (salvation/forgiveness of sins).

But it’s more like when we go to Hastings and they sometimes have a “get-your-fines-payed-off-for-free-day” or something like that. Well, if we don’t go there to receive our *gift* of not having to pay the fine, then we still have to pay the fine. So it is with God.

If we don’t go to Jesus Christ to ask for forgiveness of our sins (for we are ALL sinners, in God’s eyes), then how are we supposed to receive our *gifts* of a) forgiveness of sins and b) everlasting life? Just like we must GO to Hastings on that day to *receive* the gift of no fines, we must also GO to Jesus Christ to *receive* our *gifts* of forgiveness of sins and eternal life. All you have to do is start with this simple prayer and allow Jesus to come into your mind, heart and soul.

“Jesus, please make yourself real to me. I thank you for dying on the cross for me 1976+ years ago to save mankind from their sins. I acknowledge that I am a sinner in need of salvation. The type of salvation that only YOU can give! I humbly ask you to please come into my heart today and become my Lord & Savior. Please forgive me for all my sins and help me to REPENT of them. Help me to live a life that’s pleasing to you. Help me to spread your gospel of Salvation to others. And please help me find a righteous Christian who can full-water baptize me in your holy name. Amen”

If you said those words with all your heart, and believe them to be 100% true, and have gotten baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, then congratulations! You are now saved and a part of God’s family! And if you are STILL not “saved” at this point, I would highly encourage you to GET SAVED, for the time is short. Tomorrow is not guaranteed.

And remember….the people in hell today are there because they CHOSE to go there by rejecting Jesus Christ……They had many, many chances in their life to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ but instead, decided to live life their own way……now, they are paying DEARLY for it…….for ETERNITY……..please don’t become one of those people, folks! Please come to a saving knowledge of Jesus before it’s too late!!!!!!!

“He who believes and is baptized will be saved but he who does not believe will be condemned” [Mark 16:16]

Jesus Christ Loves You!

It doesn’t matter who you are or what you’ve done in life so far. Jesus loves you. And in him, you can be made whole again.

Maybe you grew up in the Christian faith but later turned on it when you got older. Maybe you feel as though God just isn’t there in your life or that there is no god. Maybe you’ve seen some hypocritical things that Christians have done and it has turned you off from Christianity. Maybe you struggle with an alcohol or drug addiction or feel like you’re not good enough or worthy enough for God.

Or maybe you’ve just never heard the name of Jesus Christ before and don’t know who he is or what he did or why his name should be important. Or further still, maybe you were born into/follow a different religion OR you feel as though God is just a God of “too many rules”, etc.

Well, let me tell you something. Jesus loves you! It doesn’t matter if you’re a druggie and/or drug dealer, bank robber, alcoholic, embezzler, stripper, homosexual, jihadist, Hindu/Muslim/Atheist/Buddhist, etc. Jesus loves you. And he wants to have a spiritual relationship with you and to give you the FREE gifts of salvation(forgiveness of sins) and eternal life! And it’s not a “maybe” or a “case by case basis”, you can know for 100% certainty that you are saved/forgiven of sins and reserved a special place in God’s eternal kingdom!

The following are the very moving, personal testimonies of 2 radical Muslims and a former stripper who got saved by Jesus!

Former Stripper’s Testimony [warning: very moving, tear-jerker]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjTbuY9Q1BE&feature=related

Jesus Christ is now appearing to people in dreams and visions and coming into people’s lives through strange experiences by the droves! We are living in the Last Days. Jesus will take you just as you are. And you don’t have to be live like Mother Teresa for Jesus to love and accept you, Jesus will take you just as you are. Jesus extends the FREE gifts of eternal life in paradise AND salvation (forgiveness of sin) to EVERYONE who HUMBLY and SINCERELY calls upon his great and holy name!

It doesn’t matter WHAT you’ve done in life so far, Jesus loves you! And he wants to get to know you! He knew you before you were born and before you even took your very 1st breath!He has a special plan for you. And he will never leave or forsake you, after you learn to put your faith & trust in him! And once more, he CARES what you’re going through. Whatever problem you’re having in life right now (be it financial, physical, mental, emotional, etc.), Jesus gots a solution! So please, I urge you to come to Jesus today! Jesus is the greatest inner peace & joy I’ve ever known in all my LIFE! In him, my spirit is complete! And in him, I never have to be afraid for I know that I will be eternally with him in his eternal paradise someday! In Jesus’s name, you can be sure!

You won’t ever have to question rather or not you’ll be saved/forgiven of all your sins. For EVERY person who calls on the name of the Lord Jesus, obeys Jesus’s commandments and gets baptized in his name WILL be saved! Jesus gives the free gift of *eternal salvation* to all who call upon his name! And he alone has the keys to the gates of heaven & hell.

Jesus is the ONLY one who can save us from hell and the ONLY one that can give us the free gifts of Salvation and eternal life, if we call upon his name. Jesus is like a free *eternal present* given to us by God. But in order to receive the *free eternal present*, we must first approach God in prayer and *ask* to receive the “free gift of Jesus Christ” for the remission/forgiveness of our sins and eternal life.

We must approach Jesus Christ in prayer and pray for forgiveness of our sins. The moment we do and get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, we receive our *free gift of eternal life* with God someday. 

And YES…..baptism is a necessary rite of Christian passage to become saved….the MOMENT we become baptized (believing with all our minds, hearts, body and spirit that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, that he was crucified and died for our sins, that he was resurrected just 3 days later and ascended up to heaven 40 days later to be on the right hand side of the Heavenly Father/God Almighty), we receive the FREE gifts of the Holy Spirit (the gift of *spiritual discernment* to know what is truly of God and what is NOT truly of God) & everlasting life.

And IN this day and age when SO many false gospels are floating around in today’s world and over the internet and in LARGE, televangelist churches, it is IMPERTINENT that all should receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Not only for spiritual discernment but to CONVICT US OF OUR SIN! For example, if we are doing something against God’s will, the Holy Spirit will IMMEDIATELY point it out to us and LET US KNOW…....

In other words, it’s the spiritual force that keeps us grounded….It says in the bible that BLASPHEMY of the Holy Spirit is the ONLY unforgivable sin. So what does that mean, you may ask? Well, the truth is, nobody knows for 100% sure but here are all my best educated guesses: [and remember, a person has to literally die/pass way IN death in an UNREPENTANT state of sin to be unforgiven for it].

1. To not believe in God/Jesus Christ

2. To say that Jesus got his power from Satan to cast out demons, heal sickness, instead of getting it from the Heavenly Father

3. To not get baptized and believe it’s “not necessary” to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit/spiritual discernment & conviction

4. To mock the Holy Spirit and/or to call the Holy Spirit a liar

5. To say that Jesus was NOT the Son of God or to say that Jesus was NOT crucified

6. To not believe in the Holy Spirit 

7. To believe that Jesus and Satan were brothers or considered “equal” in heaven, before the fall

Matthew 12:31-32 has this to say: “Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come”
