GENE-EDITING & IVF, ETC. ARE AN ABOMINATION, PART B

And besides: there’s many, MANY cases in the bible where women conceived NATURALLY in their old age and/or IN their times of infertility. Let us examine all SEVEN of those cases! (And there might possibly be more but these 7 cases are the ones that most Christians recall from the bible…….)

Old Testament:

1). HANNAH – Hannah was “barren” and like Sarah, was “constantly tormented” by Elkanah’s 2nd “fertile” wife, Peninnah, since Hannah had no children. Hannah’s husband, Elkanah, even lamented to her in 1 Samuel: 1-8 “Hannah, why weepest thou? and why eatest thou not? and why is thy heart grieved? am not I better to thee than ten sons?“. However, Hannah goes up to the Temple to pray for a child and a Levite priest at the temple blesses her & prays that the Lord will “grant her her petition” and that’s exactly what happened. And thus, the PROPHET SAMUEL was born!

2). SARAH – As stunningly “beautiful” as Sarah was, she was barren. And like Hannah, was “constantly tormented” by what had become Abraham’s 2nd wife, Hagar the “fertile” Egyptian. Genesis 15:2-3 shows us Sarah’s husband, Abraham, grieving over having no heir: And Abram said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless, and the steward of my house is this Eliezer of Damascus? And Abram said, Behold, to me thou hast given no seed: and, lo, one born in my house is mine heir“. But in Genesis 21:1-8, Sarah conceived and bore ISAAC! 

3). REBEKAH – Rebekah, the bible records, was stunningly beautiful but “barren”. Genesis 25:21 states: “And Isaac intreated [that means prayed to] the LORD for his wife, because she was barren: and the LORD was intreated [prayed to] of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived”. Rebekah bore the biblical twins ESAU & JACOB!

4). RACHEL – Like Sarah & Rebekah, Rachel, the bible recorded, was ALSO stunningly beautiful………but also barren. She was also the *favorite wife* of Jacob. When the Lord originally saw that Rachel’s sister Leah was unloved, he opened Leah’s womb (while closing up Rachel’s – atleast for that time being) and Leah bore SIX SONS + A DAUGHTER! However, Rachel then became EXTREMELY jealous of her sister Leah & then demanded that Jacob give HER children, also!

Genesis 30:1-2 records the following: And when Rachel saw that she bare Jacob no children, Rachel envied her sister; and said unto Jacob, Give me children, or else I die!” And Jacob’s anger was kindled against Rachel: and he said, Am I in God’s stead, who hath withheld from thee the fruit of the womb?

Genesis 30:22-24 then states, And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and opened her womb. And she conceived, and bare a son; and said, God hath taken away my reproach: And she called his name Joseph; and said, The Lord shall add to me another son”. And she thus gave birth to JOSEPH & then later, to BENJAMIN! 

5). JOCHEBED – She married her own NEPHEW in the Old Testament (BEFORE it was forbidden for aunts/uncles and nieces/nephews to marry). So this, to ME anyways, suggest that she was slightly older in age than her nephew, Amram. Which would ALSO likely mean that she likely conceived pass the typical biblical child-bearing age to birth MOSES, AARON & MIRIAM!

6). MONOAH’S WIFE in Judges 13: 2-3 which says, And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not. And the angel of the Lord appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son”. 

Judges 13:24-25 then records: And the woman bare a son, and called his name Samson: and the child grew, and the Lord blessed him. And the Spirit of the Lord began to move him at times in the camp of Dan between Zorah and Eshtaol”. 

She was the one who gave birth to the exceptionally-strengthed, long-haired SAMSON!

New Testament:

7). ELIZABETH – The SAME exact Holy Spirit that conceived a son in Mary (a virgin) was the same exact Holy Spirit that allowed Elizabeth to “conceive in her old age”. The archangel Gabriel informed Mary of this in Luke 1:36 when he stated, “And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren“. Elizabeth ended up bearing JOHN THE BAPTIST!

So conclusion? It is MUCH, MUCH better to “wait on God/Jesus” than to PREMATURELY take matters into one’s own hands, as both Rachel & Sarah had witnessed! (Note:”Rachel’s son by her handmaiden, Dan, later became the father of a “condemned” tribe of Israel while Sarah’s son by her slave, Hagar, later went on to CRUELLY mock Sarah & Isaac when Isaac was a baby!)

And besides: Jesus is a GOD OF MIRACLES! Therefore, if he could provide ancient biblical infertile women with children, He could ALSO theoretically provide NATURAL CHILDREN for TODAY’S infertile women!

But then again, it all goes back to Jesus’s will for people’s lives. Some people (for whatever reason in Jesus’s eyes) just weren’t meant to have children. For some, it might be for genetic reasons (a person might have a terrible disease that runs in the family such as alcoholism/schizophrenia or it might kill the mother outright to carry a child for 9 months). For others, it might be for SPIRITUAL REASONS. ….

It is SO easy to truly focus on Christ when we got NO outside distractions (or people) demanding our attention. But yet, it is SO HARD to focus on Christ when we DO have things such as spouses/S.O.’s or children/nieces/nephews/grandkids that distract us from Christ (believe me, I know).

Also: Gay couples use IVF/surrogacy for various purposes. Therefore, if a “medical technique” allows gay couples to have children, then SHOULD that same medical technique be touted as “OK” or “Acceptable” among today’s BIBLICAL-ROOTS/BORN-AGAIN Christians? It stands to reason. IVF, surrogacy and “gene-editing” (atleast to ME, anyways) are like one and the same. It’s basically “manipulating genes/science” to “bend to one’s will”, PLAYING GOD…..AND….turning babies into a $$$$$$ COMMODITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But in reality, we, as Christians, should instead be bending to the Lord Jesus Christ’s will, instead of our own. Because truth be told, we humans HAVE NO PLACE manipulating genes/embryos to OUR personal will! That’s SELFISH! In fact, I’ll even take this a step further. A “genetically-modified ANYTHING” (save for organ/blood donation) is outside of the Lord Jesus Christ’s will! It’s TRUE!

Everything from PURPOSELY genetically-modified genes [EXCLUDING ORGAN/BLOOD DONATION – WHICH I’M SURE JESUS CONSIDERS VERY NOBLE, ESPECIALLY IF IT HELPS SAVES THE LIVES OF OTHERS] to genetically-modified FOOD is **OUTSIDE** of the Lord Jesus’s will! Why? Because it messes with HIS natural design! And ANYTHING (and I do mean, ANYTHING) outside of HIS (the Lord Jesus’s) natural DNA design (be it food or otherwise) is AN ABOMINATION! Why? Because it’s like personally saying to God: “We can do better!”

Because remember folks, genetically-modified doesn’t just apply to HUMAN GENES, it can also apply to FOOD GENES, as well! Is it any wonder that many of today’s “GMO’s” cause CANCER in humans and animals and also that MANY upon MANY of today’s “genetically-modified crops” are ALSO getting all sorts of “crop diseases?” Trust me, folks, there’s a REASONING for that! The Lord Jesus Christ knew EXACTLY what he was doing when he designed FOOD GENES and/or HUMAN DNA an EXACT WAY.

And over time, when “liberal scientists” began doing their “experiments”, trying to MANIPULATE and CHANGE THE DNA CODING/SEQUENCING, (first, with food and then later, with rodents in test labs and now – in humans), bad things started to happen. And now there’s high rates of cancer and many “diseases”. Why? Because humans keep rebelling against HIS natural design! Why aren’t more people seeing this fact? Answer: Because Satan, demons and today’s “liberal media” are HIDING the fact!

Folks, it’s time to start CRITICALLY EXAMINING “genetically modified” in ALL its forms (food included). If you’re buying “genetically-modified (GMO) food”, STOP! (Although from what I can gather so far, ORGANIC FOOD is okay because ORGANIC FOOD does NOT use any harmful pesticides, etc. – and ORGANIC food and GENETICALLY-MODIFIED FOOD, from what I understand, are two COMPLETELY different things!) If you’re considering IVF, DON’T DO IT! If you’ve already had an IVF procedure, REPENT of it (in your heart) and don’t do it again!

[And Note: Alot of people don’t realize this but there’s also a SPIRITUAL COMPONENT that goes along with NATURAL PROCREATION. Because not ONE couple in the bible procreated by un-natural means. NOT ONE. And even if the technology had existed back then, my guess is that Jesus Christ/Almighty God would’ve been TOTALLY against it, for various reasons! But still, I wonder………what is the “soul” of a “synthetic baby” like? Oddly and strangely enough, I haven’t yet heard of ONE single born again/zealous-for-God’s-Word Messianic Jew or Christian who was created the “synthetic way”. I wonder why that is. It doesn’t mean they’re not theoretically out there somewhere in the Christian/Messianic Jew world, I just haven’t come across one, yet. Weird? 

I’ve most recently come across a news story where a woman had a military husband who died. They had been planning to have children. So she then wanted to posthumously use IVF to have a child/children by him! And……while my heart goes out to this woman for her pain and her struggles…..(that must be a VERY hard thing to go through and I pray that Jesus grants her heart some healing), the liberal media uses cases like THESE

to evoke some sort of “sympathetic emotional response” from the masses in order to “legitimize” what they’re ALREADY genetically doing in labs all across the world and then, from there on out, it’s all just a slippery slope further downhill (biblical-moral wise).

It almost sounds like (in her mind, anyways) that her having a child by him will be about the ONLY thing that can ‘heal her’. However, ONLY Jesus Christ is the judge on this particular case and ONLY Jesus Christ HIMSEFLF can heal her! It sounds as though this woman has been through ALOT and my heart just breaks for her! I pray that Jesus Christ gives her healing (and possibly a new husband who can still provide her with children, which she so obviously wants!)

Many Christian parents don’t want to adopt since they feel as though “it won’t be the same”, and/or “I’ll never love an adopted child the way I’d love my OWN child” and the like. But the thing with adoption is…….we humans get attached to things VERY easily (even more than we realize……and oftentimes at a much faster rate than we realize).

But in fact, if most infertile Christian couples would just A) give the Lord TIME/a chance to perform a healing and/or fertility miracle or B) consider adoption, I think they’d be much better off, spiritually & otherwise, rather than just prematurely taking matters into their own hands with surrogacy/”gene-manipulation-therapy”/IVF, considering its long-term “spiritual implications”.

When God/Jesus Christ Seems Distant…….

We go through times and periods in our lives where we feel nothing but joyous, content and very, very close to the Lord, where our faith is rock-solid & unshakeable. But at other times in our lives, God/Jesus Christ can seem VERY distant.

And several questions start running through one’s mind: “is the Lord angry with me?”, “does the Lord hate me?”, “is the Lord unhappy with me?”, “am I being punished for something?”, etc.

We have a human tendency to think that Jesus Christ is distancing himself from US. But what’s REALLY going on is that WE are distancing ourselves from HIM.

It all starts out SO slowly & subtlety.  “I don’t feel like reading any of the bible today”, “I don’t feel like going to work today”, “I don’t feel like cleaning the house today”, “I don’t feel like taking the kids to the zoo today”, etc. And then, it all branches out from there.

And then, before we know it, we don’t feel like doing most of ANYTHING, we start to forget what’s even in the bible in the first place, our faith becomes LACKING, and we’re not even sure what we truly follow anymore. And that’s a very scary place to be in, INDEED.

This is usually the start of the “justification of sin” phase that we Christians can easily fall into.

We try telling ourselves things like: “oh, it’s okay I took a small fountain drink from work without paying for it, the customer before me said I could have THEIR drink since they weren’t going to get the fountain drink that came with their meal” or “it’s okay if I take a penny from the communal change bucket to help pay for something, that’s not stealing, it’s ONLY a penny”, etc. But the truth of the matter is, Jesus Christ is ALWAYS WATCHING US (every move we make, every word we say, even every thought we do so much as “think”). And he uses such experiences to “test us” and to “test our character”.

I’ve seen customers at work that will try to pay for a fountain cup full of ice water because they don’t realize the ice water is free. I’ve also had other customers who came up to actually PAY for a fountain drink refill. And that’s pretty amazing since our fountain drink station is pretty much out in the lobby area, UNMONITORED by any employees at my work. Customers could very easily steal fountain drinks without any employee at my work being none the wiser. (And many do, probably). But the fact that THOSE few customers who were honest enough to actually try to PAY for fountain cups of ice water or for fountain drink refills taught me a VERY valuable lesson about the bible and the importance of APPLYING the bible to our lives directly by HONESTY!

Because lets face it, stealing is stealing in God’s eyes, it doesn’t matter if it’s a pen from the bank, etc. (even though many steal pens mistakenly/subconsciously — though it STILL doesn’t make it okay) or something as small as 1 PENNY!

And trust me, if it was the day of your final hour on this Earth (and nobody knows for sure the very “precise” moment when they will die) and the ONLY thing standing between you, the true, biblical Christian and eternal condemnation was just ONE unrepentant “stolen penny” from the common change bucket (for example), you’d repent and immediately place the penny back in the common change bucket, wouldn’t you?

But in general, we humans are prideful, arrogant creatures. We (for the most part) do NOT like hearing that we are sinners. We LIKE hearing about or thinking about how great we are or how talented we are. But the truth is, we are NOTHING without God, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

God/Jesus Christ is the author of ALL LIFE, and is also the creator of ETERNAL LIFE & ETERNAL CONDEMNATION. Without HIM, we’d have no life/existence, PERIOD, nor would we have any chance of eternal life & Eternal Salvation.

Romans 3:23 states: “For all have sinned & fallen short of the glory of God”. Translation? We’re ALL sinners. Not one of us is perfect. Not one. We are ALL going to sin at some point in our lives and we are ALL going to make mistakes from time to time. It’s how we LEARN from those mistakes that count.

And our spiritual walk with Jesus Christ is NOT always gonna be a smooth one either, so we need to remember that and keep that in mind.

In fact, Jesus says in John 15: 18-23 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my Father also”.

In other words, Jesus Christ told us in the bible that we (as true, biblical Christians) would have to go up against much clamour and opposition from “the world” (who’s pursuits are greed, money, materialism, lust, envy, pride, sloth, hatred, godlessness, etc.) He also informed us in the bible that he would be persecuted by the Romans AND the Jews who were loyal to Rome. And because HE was persecuted by the “secular” world of his day, that we true, biblical Christians would ALSO be persecuted by the secular world of OUR modern day.

And because of this, some Christians will give up at the first sign of spiritual struggle. They will say things like: “I knew it was pretty hard to try to gain entry into God’s Eternal Kingdom someday but I never realized it was gonna be THIS HARD, sheesh!” And then, for them, that’s it. They don’t feel like being a “Christian” anymore. And quite frankly, Satan is DELIGHTED when that happens, for these poor people are “easy pickins” for him.

But for those Christians out there who STRIVE their very hardest to try to gain entry in God’s Eternal Kingdom someday? That’s who Satan wants to overcome THE MOST. And he will stop at NOTHING to try to make that happen! He will try to throw just a little tiny bit of DOUBT into a Christian’s mind OR make one OVERCOME with feelings of shame, guilt & fear.

And once Satan manages to harvest some of those negative emotions into a Christian person’s mind, they become “easy prey” for him! He can THEN try to make them feel lazy or depressed or doubtful and from there, getting them to not read their bible every week, and neglecting their house/kids/marriage/self is a walk in the park for him!

And then, once Satan has someone neglecting their house/kids/work/marriage/self/LIFE, getting them to doubt their faith & slowly turn away from God is “no problem t’all”.

But there’s one thing that Satan is VERY, VERY good at and that’s THIS: getting people to get mad at God/Jesus Christ for the actual spiritual havoc, that he, Satan himself, is causing in their lives in the first place!

People will say things to themselves or to close friends like “why does God/Jesus Christ seem to have it out for me right, now?”, “why does God hate me?”, “what does God have against me? I didn’t do anything!”etc. And the sad part is, it’s actually SATAN who hates them, it’s SATAN who “has it out for them” and quite frankly, it’s SATAN who’s punishing them for having previously tried to live a Christ-centered life.

But AS SOON as people start blaming God/Jesus Christ for the spiritual havoc in their lives, Satan is having a ball, while reeling them in on his fishing line in one quick, swift motion! And before a person realized what’s hit them, they haven’t read the bible in 6 months to a year, they couldn’t tell you who Joshua or Caleb was, they haven’t fellowshipped with other believers for quite some time, they’ve quit preaching to others about Christ & Eternal Salvation, they don’t even remember the last time they prayed for forgiveness of their sins or the last time they had an actual date with their spouse or took the kids to the park or the zoo, etc.

And then, some Christians will oftentimes think: “well, I’m already this far gone from God, might as well stay here”. They come to a place of lukewarmness where they are TOTALLY forgetting the fact that Jesus Christ is the author of all life and that he has the power to change any negative thing in their lives for the better! They forget about the miracles of the Lions’ Den, of the parting of the Red Sea, of the turning the water into wine, of bringing back Lazarus from the dead, etc.

In their minds, Jesus Christ is not a God of miracles and of all life. In their minds, Jesus Christ becomes this sort’ve “burdensome taskmaster”. They tell themselves: “it’s too hard being Christian these days………besides, Jesus Christ’s not gonna send EVERYONE to eternal condemnation after they die, right? Only the MAJOR evil people like Hitler & Stalin, correct?” while totally forgetting the fact that EVEN Hitler & Stalin could’ve been saved had they TRULY repented of their deeds right before they died.

And yes, it’s true. The “path” to eternal life & eternal Salvation is a very narrow path, INDEED!

Jesus Christ said in Matthew 7: 13-14Enter ye in at the strait gate: for WIDE is the gate, and BROAD is the way, that leadeth to DESTRUCTION, and MANY there be which go in thereat: Because STRAIGHT is the gate, and NARROW is the way, which leadeth unto LIFE, and FEW there be that find it“.

In other words, it’s a hard and narrow path to find AND be/stay on but with the HELP of Jesus Christ himself, is NOT an “impossible” path to find or be/stay on.

This guy says it best when he mentions we need to read the Holy Bible, King James Version, DAILY. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Not just SOME days of the week but ALL days of the week. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.


If you’re struggling right now in your spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ and are not sure where to turn, turn to a verse in the King James Bible, ANY verse, and start reading. Even if you don’t FEEL like it. And then sooner or later, you will have a desire to keep reading and that’s exactly how Jesus Christ feverishly works to restore us to HIM!

Then again, sometimes the important thing is just letting Yeshua/Jesus Christ know how you feel. TELL him you’re feeling doubt, TELL him that you feel like he’s distant from you, TELL him whatever it is you’re struggling with in life right now, faith-wise or otherwise and he’ll be glad to answer you. You can even PRAY to have more faith and more trust in him!

What do you think the Lord’s gonna say if you pray to him to have more faith? Do you think he’s gonna say NO? If you pray to have more faith, he will GIVE you more faith. He’ll give you situations in which your faith starts to build up bit by bit and little by little. We just got to learn to trust him.

And think of it THIS way: he created the universe and the heavens! So don’t you think he knows what he’s doing in YOUR life? Cause afterall, it’s not like he’s gonna be a type of creator God that creates the Earth and the heavens, and then scratch his head in confusion over how to deal with a mere human’s lifetime! Nothing in our lives will have him “stumped”! He is the author of all life! 

I pray that all souls that read this blog and/or this very post will either come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ or come BACK to the saving knowledge/restored spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ before it’s too late and before their souls become on the path to be lost for eternity. In Jesus’s name. Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Procrastination: Jesus’s tears & the Devil’s playground.

“It’s okay. I’ll do it tomorrow”. And then the next day rolls around. “I don’t feel like it today. I’ll do it tomorrow”. And yet a third day rolls forth and again we say to yourselves “nah, this really don’t have to be done today. I can always do this later”.

Well, guess what, people! Jesus Christ is not a “part-time” God! Which is why we ourselves can not be “part-time” servants! The Lord up in heaven is rolling about 24/7 and doesn’t take any “breaks”, so why should WE?

Many tragedies in our very own lives could’ve been prevented had we listened to the true spiritual voice of Jesus. In fact, we could’ve prevented many bad relationships/marriages and/or situations if we had listened to Jesus Christ and done what HE wanted us to do at the time that HE wanted us to do it!

For example, lets say you’re a woman who’s caught up in the wrong relationship….a relationship that’s taking you away from Jesus. So the Lord says to that woman “leave him. Forget him and follow me, instead”. If you’re like most women who’s desperately in love with your man, you’re probably gonna cling to your man for awhile and “put off” leaving him, telling yourself “it’s okay, I’ll do it in a couple of days” or “I’ll do it a couple of weeks from now”. And then 1 week turns into 1 month turns into YEARS. And lets face it, that is WILLFUL DISOBEDIENCE of the Lord’s will. And we only have to turn to Revelation in the bible to see the fate of those unrepentant sinners who are either “blissfully unaware” of their sins or that CHOOSE to continue to live in them….Need I say anything more?

Or perhaps you’re a man or woman who was either layed off or quit your job. And so the Lord says “find another job”. And well, in today’s economy, it’s quite TEMPTING to give in to feelings of fear, disillusionment, anger…..even laziness. But the longer we “put off” trying to find a job, the longer we are actually giving in to Satan and Satan’s power and once again drowning out the voice of Jesus.

That’s all procrastination really boils down to. Drowning out the voice of Jesus Christ.

And then there’s those unfortunate souls out there who KNOW they are not right with God, who KNOW there’s things they must still do/repent of and of whom KNOW they’re not doing what Jesus asked/that they are “knowingly” drowning out the voice of Jesus. But yet, they turn around and *lament* about their knowledge that they are headed for HELL when they die….

Well, my friends, Jesus Christ can NOT help you if you don’t cry out to him. Even if you don’t FEEL like crying out to him, do it anyways! TRUST ME ON THIS!

Pray to him “Lord, I feel angry, I feel disillusioned with the job market, I feel drained of energy and lazy. I know I’m not right with you. I know I’ve lost my motivation to be right with you. But please GIVE ME the motivation to be right with you. Please guide me INTO a right path with you. Please make your heavenly voice SO LOUD within my soul that there’s NO mistaking it and NO drowning it out, no matter what. Please make your will SO obvious that to me, it’s UNDENIABLE. Please show me what I’m doing right and what I need to do better. Oh Lord, please have mercy on me, a sinner!”

Now, going back to how Jesus wants us to do things at times when HE wants us to do it. Perhaps you’re at the grocery store and the Lord suddenly wants you to ask someone a question (even if the question isn’t anything about religion). But you think that’s weird and so you don’t do it. And then, that person later ends up getting injured by a drunk driver. Maybe those 30+ seconds spent asking them the question would’ve delayed the time-plane interval enough where they wouldn’t have gotten into the accident….

See, the Lord knows everything that’s gonna happen way ahead of time. Just like the Lord also knows how to prevent certain things, as well. However, the Lord can NOT intervene with human free will. So theoretically speaking, rather or not “person B” ended up later getting injured by a drunk driver was dependent on rather or not “person A” at the grocery store decided to exercise their free will to “serve the Lord” or NOT serve the Lord, see? The Lord’s theoretical request for us to stop and ask someone a question in the grocery store might not make sense to US but it makes perfect sense to HIM, see? There’s divine reasoning for EVERYTHING he asks us to do (both great and small). And when we DELAY to do it or don’t do it AT ALL (whatever he asks us to do WHEN he asks us to do it), consequences often strike.

The devil is very, very good at getting us to procrastinate and question things, question ourselves, question God, etc. (Believe me, I know from personal experience, here). And though we don’t always realize it, whenever we “stray” from Jesus, Jesus is not only ANGRY but he is FULL OF TEARS.

Have you ever felt or sensed the anger AND the “tears” of Jesus Christ when we’ve said/done something wrong? “I” have and it’s not a great feeling.

But then, the devil tries to FEED off that “guilt” we feel over displeasing Jesus Christ and tries to get us to believe that we are SO BAD, SO FILTHY in the Lord’s site, that the Lord Jesus will NEVER forgive us and accept us back. But my friend, these are all lies!

Jesus Christ LOVES YOU! And he wants to have a spiritual relationship with you! But he can’t do that if you won’t let him! REPENT of your sins and stop doing them! Read the bible! Get baptized in Jesus’s name! Get to know Jesus TODAY!

And if you’ve been straying from Jesus lately, COME BACK TO HIM! Don’t worry, don’t be scared. Jesus Christ will accept you back with wide, OPEN ARMS (provided you truly repented of your sins and prayed for FORGIVENESS of your sins).
