Faith – If you have read the rest of our site, you may be wondering why we bother with all of this. It’s not about “being good people”, talking on the radio, or feeling good about ourselves.
We do this because of WHO WE KNOW.
Everything in this life – money, cars, friends, drugs – they all leave you empty. Everything falls short of filling that “emptiness” we feel inside. We know – we were there too. No matter how hard you try, its impossible to “make life work.” Things may be good for a little while, but we all end up causing hurt and pain to ourselves and others around us, and destroy everything we love. Sometimes, we even do it on purpose.
We do these things because we are sinners. We aren’t sinners because we sin, we sin because we’re sinners – the Bible says “all have sinned, and fallen short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23) We have walked away from God, and chosen to follow a lie instead of The Truth. We are separated from a Holy and Just God by our sin – and without accepting Christ, we are choosing to spend eternity separated from Him.
The Good News, or Gospel, is that we can have forgiveness and fellowship with God. All we need to do is accept that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for our sins, and ask Him into our hearts as our Lord and our Savior.
Are we saying that if a person does not believe in Jesus Christ, they are going to hell? Jesus Christ Himself said, “I am the way, the truth and the life, and no one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). If humankind could have reached God any other way, Jesus would not have had to die.
Jesus Christ has made a huge impact in our lives, and in the lives of many others we know. Its not about religion, or a bunch of rules. It’s about RELATIONSHIP.
