Jesus dead for your sins on the cross, thus saving you from your sins!
He rose on the third day, saving you from Hell!
But you must accept him as your personal Savior


How You Can Know God's Love
How You Can Have Forgiveness for Your Sins
How You Can Become One of Gods People and Child

The Roman Road
For whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved." 
- Romans 10:13

"There is a God in Heaven who loves you as you are and not as you should be."

Yes... you are right... there is a God. You know that must be true. The heart of
the human being longs for God, and logic demands divine existence.

While everyone believes God is... most sense separation from God. We
know God must be holy and good. We see ourselves as unholy and not good.
We conclude that God is angry with us and we cannot know Him.

Good News! This Testament of God's love is His Word to tell us that He loves
us as we are. That love will save us from our sin and make us what we should
be as God's children.


John 3:16
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that
whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life."


We hear Jesus say, 
"God so loved the world." God's love has no limitations.
He loves 
"so". More than we can imagine. He loves everyone - not just
some ones.

Romans 5:8 tells us that God loved us so that
 "when we were in our sin
Christ Jesus came to die for us."



Romans 3:23
"for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,"

This verse tells us that all people have sinned. We have fallen short of
God's intended purpose for us. God made us to know Him.... to receive His
love and to love him in return.

For love to be love... for God to be God... and for humans to be humans....
God gave us a choice. We can choose to love ourselves and turn to our
selfish pursuits. That is sin. In our sin we cannot know God and His love.
The result of sin is that we are lost... separated from God.

Romans 6:23
"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in
Christ Jesus our Lord."


Wages are just payment... due reward... what one has coming because of
labor. The just payment for our sin is death.

Death here means spiritual insensitivity. When we are still in our sin, we
have no life with God. We are alive physically but dead spiritually. If we
continue in that condition, we will be separated from God for all eternity.

The wages of sin is death. but God's free gift is eternal life. While wages
are earned, a gift is offered... no strings attached. God says He will give us
eternal life - life with Him - in the place of sin's payment of death.

How can God remain true to His holiness and forgive unholy sinners?
Because Jesus, His Son, has paid the price for sin by His death on the cross.

Second Corinthians 5:21 says, 
"He who knew no sin became sin for us, that
we may be made the righteousness of God through Him."


Jesus arose from the grave to conquer sin and death for all who receive Him
as God's free gift.

How can you receive God's free gift of love and life?

Romans 10:9-10
"that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart
that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a
person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he
confesses, resulting in salvation."


A person receives God's free gift of love and life by placing faith in Jesus
Christ. To believe is simply to take God at His word. With our heart
(whole believing) we believe that Jesus is God's Son who died for our sin
on the cross and arose from the grave to live in us as Savior and Lord.

To believe in Jesus will result in confessing that faith with one's mouth.

Do you acknowledge that your are a sinner?

Do you believe by faith that Jesus, God's Son, died for your sin on the cross?

Will you now confess Him as your Savior and Lord?

Romans 10:13
"for Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved."


This verse says that any person who will call upon the name of Jesus,
the Lord, shall be saved.

To call means simply to ask in prayer. The verse does not require one to
know more... do better... clean up one's life... or in any way try to add to
what Jesus has done for us.

Will you now call upon Jesus to save you from your sin so that you
can know God's love and forgiveness?


Pray like this: "Dear God, I confess that I am a sinner, and I am sorry. I need
a Savior. I know I cannot save myself. I believe by faith that Jesus, your
Son, died on the cross to be my Savior. I believe He arose from the grave
to live as my Lord. I turn from my sin. I ask You, Lord Jesus, to forgive my
sin and come into my heart. I trust you as my Savior and receive you as
my Lord. Thank you, Jesus, for saving me."


When anyone calls on the Lord in this manner, that one is saved according
to God's Word
. If you pray a prayer of repentance and faith, you are saved.
You have God's word on it.

If you have prayed this prayer to receive Christ as your Lord and Savoir, why
not record your decision to follow Jesus as follows. Often times, a good place
to write this would be inside the cover of your bible:

Believing by faith that God loves me and sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die
for my sin and arise from the grave to live in me, I, _______, do this day,
________, repent of my sin and accept Jesus Christ as my personal Lord
and Savior. According to the promise of God in Romans 10:13, I have
called upon His name and have His word for the assurance of my salvation.

How to Create a Banana Republic Out Of a Once-Great Natio


How to Create a Banana Republic Out Of a Once-Great Nation

December 31, 2013

Altruism is a mask for deception. The fiat system promotes altruism with slogans like, “For the greater good,” “It’s for the children” and “Equality for all.” Translated, this means, give of your substance so that we may all be equal.
Altruism is an attribute of the liberal mind. It is based on groupism, which is the concept of egalitarianism. It is the opposite of individuality and responsibility. It is the basis upon which all redistributive schemes are launched.
The psychopaths walking the halls of power are about to employ it yet again. They want to divest people of their retirement funds in order to prop up the failing regime. They will do so by converting 401(k) plans and individual retirement accounts to government debt. These discussions have been going on for several years.
There is also precedent for this confiscation scheme. It happened as recently as September in.
What you will hear more and more of in the coming months are words like “savings inequality” and “racial inequality.” They will be used to condition simple minds to accept that they are responsible for funding the retirements of the “less fortunate.”
A report by the liberal think tank National Institute on Retirement Security notes that black and Latino households hold much less retirement savings than white households. Among near-retirees, the per-household average savings balance for blacks, Latinos and Asians is $30,000; whites average $120,000 in savings.
I have already reported to you that the Washington, D.C., elites are eying your retirement funds and the discussions are becoming more open. President Barack Obama proposed “automatic IRAs” in his 2013 budget. These would have required business to contribute 3 percent of an employee’s salary to private companies selected by the government in order to fund a pension.

So how do you turn a once-great nation into a banana republic? First, you divide the people against
themselves by slowly changing their psyche to collectivism and altruism. Then morality becomes quicksand, and reality becomes spurious and frivolous.


Collectivism and altruism diminish individualism and transforms the mind. Adolf Hitler used this concept to manipulate the German people into false patriotism and self-sacrifice. Now, it’s déjà vu all over again.
Can we be slaves and give our total allegiance to the state without being conscious of it? Can we support the state without awareness? Yes. And how do we do it? The answer is that we work for depreciating currency. We “save” in depreciating currency. We buy life insurance in depreciating currency. And we leave our estates in depreciating currency.

Collectivism and altruism are the rot of morality and individualism. The people evolve into nothing more than an expression of the State
