BEWLEYBOOKS: Is the Bible Super Natural?
Updated: May 27
By: Ray Comfort @ LivingWaters.com
The Bible is supernatural in origin. Therefore take heed to its promise of Heaven and warning of Hell. If you doubt this, read through this list...
Let’s see if you qualify to enter Heaven:
Have you ever lied (even once - fibs, white lies, etc.)?
Have you ever stolen (anything - the value is irrelevant)?
Jesus said, "Whoever looks upon a woman to lust after her, has committed adultery already with her in his heart." Have you ever looked with lust?
Have you ever taken God's name in vain?
If you have said "Yes" to these questions, by your own admission, you are a lying, thieving, adulterer at heart; and we’ve only looked at four of the Ten Commandments. That’s how God sees you. Will you be innocent or guilty on the Day of Judgment?
Ray Comfort says: If you doubt what God is all about, think of it this way. You are a guilty person because you have collected a lot of speeding fines. You arrive in court and the Judge says "Someone has paid your fine." When someone pays your fine, you are free to go. That's the law.
When you break any one of the Ten Commandments, you are breaking God's law. But you know what, he sent Jesus to pay your fine. All you have to do, to not go to Hell, is repent (say sorry) and put your trust in a man who paid your fine with his life.
That man Jesus must have had something about him. For his stories to still be around, 2,000 years later, he must had something more than charisma about him. He told metaphorical stories. Stories that stayed in the mind because they were designed specifically for your brain to work on. Your brain is a 'problem solving machine' while your emotions are your morality gage that your conscience works with.
Listen to your conscience. You know that you and I are guilty, therefore we would end up in Hell. That’s not God’s will. He provided a way for you to be forgiven. He sent His Son to take your punishment and to pay your fine:
"God commended His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
When the Bible says you will have 'eternal life', it doesn't mean physical life. It means your soul will be saved from Hell. Don't you think you owe your soul that opportunity?
Some people don't know how to pray. They don't know how to say sorry. They don't even know how to believe in God. Here's a prayer that you can start with...
"Dear God, I repent of all of my sins (name the things you think you've done wrong). This day I put my trust in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior the man who was tortured and died for me to be released from Hell. Please forgive me and grant me your gift of everlasting life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."
Then read the Bible daily and try to understand what you read (see John 14:21). It may be difficult to understand, but God will not let you down.
