"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
This is what I believe. I do not believe that there is any other way to God. I do not believe that if you think being loving in life and you call God "love" and all you have to do is stay on some path of love is true. It might be what you believe - but what I'm saying is I will never say to you "If that is what you believe that is your path to finding God/Heaven." Because for me to say that would be a lie, and to deny my faith, the very core of who I am. I understand some people do not believe what I do, that is their choice. But I believe that we are all sinners, and God sent his son, Jesus Christ to pay for that sin (even before we ever commit it) on the cross and that if you repent of your sin and accept Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour that you will be filled with the Holy Spirit (which can never be taken from you - he doesn't just move out ;) ) and when you die you will enter into Heaven's gates and spend an eternity with God and Christ. To have a relationship with God that can not be seperated by sin, the world or space or time. To have an eternity with him and those who chose him as well. That's what I believe. And I can will say it here!! Or anywhere, but definitely here on my website and profile!!
Obviously I am a YouTube-er! :) So I stumble across things that make me laugh, cry and puke(millions of tiny baby spiders on it's Momma's back and when she moves all these tiny spiders shift around on her!). BUT this makes me a bit weary. A woman who has this amazing gift to speak to people and they listen is saying - God doesn't exist "for everyone" but for those who believe. If you believe God is love then you believe in love and you are right and the person who believes in God is right. I am not going off of things that people have said about Oprah - I'm going off of things that I've seen Oprah say with her own mouth. There is no consistancy - one segment she says that God is different for each person then she says "God is. God is a feeling..not a belief and if you think God is something to believe in that isn't it - it's God, a feeling."
Whether you believe in God or not - this kind of "non belief system" is DANGEROUS. For one - it takes away any conviction what so ever, without conviction - there is no remorse, there is no guilt, there is nothing to say what is right or wrong. What you feel will be right. If I feel it is okay to molest a small child then that is what I feel - what you feel may be different and that is okay - but this is what I feel is okay and I am right in doing that.(Oh btw that is NOT what I feel haha, but you get what I'm saying..) What about the person who raped and murdered a little boy or girl, they sit on trial and say "It's what I believe, I believe it's okay to do" if what you believe is true to you is right, then what's to stop a judge from saying "according to what this man says he is not wrong." Those of you who profess Christ as your Saviour - now would be a great time to stand up and say what you believe and not be afraid, if God is with us, who can be against us?
I have many many friends who do not believe what I do. But they all know what I believe and it's clear to them why I believe it, and I've never forced my beliefs on them(oh and this is not force, seeing as you are reading this by choice and it's my website and profile). I think that's important, but what I want to do now - is expand. I would like to expand this realisation to people who perhaps don't know me well or not at all. I want to be someone who there is not a shadow of a doubt that Christ is my Saviour and there is something different about me - to all people. I want it to be obvious and I want to do that in such a loving way that God's love penetrates every aspect of my life and effects everyone around me. Even if that means I'm a goober or the "the God lady" (as one kid from my town used to call me) or a goody-two-shoes. I'm cool with that.
Anyway! Feel free to comment and say what you want - but you know my response already.
One more thing, logically speaking. If you don't believe what I do, would you think my faith was very firm or strong if I said "it's just one way" or "it's right for me but not for you"..what kind of weak faith cannot save the ones you love but only yourself - if I didn't believe in God, I would have a lot more respect for someone who did fully than someone who did halfway, or weakly.
There is only ONE TRUTH.
