Accept Christ (as savior, as son, as God HIMSELF, as that brick in the wall, as every atom, as everything that ever was, is, and will be)
Ask for forgiveness & repent (walk away from sin)
Say thank you :)
I feel a lot of people here (not all), but a lot, seem to struggle with pride (this entails arrogance, condemning those who are 'lesser', etc) ((we are all man))
And pride is sneaky.
Ego is pride, for the most part.
But he values those with strong values, a sort of solidification in those with the traits, say, souls who never cease to worship, never cease to ask forgiveness, to repent.
Pride is what tells you that you don't need to worship, forgive, repent.
Pride ties into wrath, as well.. If you can draw your own parallel here, you can see why.
And then you can understand that literally everything besides Christ himself IS sin.
And the way the world stands now may or not be just as terrible as Sodom & Gomorrah.
Yet God gave us his final offering, a very merciful chance at salvation (we ALL deserve to go to hell. We are like dirty rags next to Him).
And he's been pretty quiet since.
But Revelations says he will come like a thief in the night (not expecting it)
And the world is over.
And you hand God your statement.
Why should you be allowed into heaven?
Nothing you say will plead your case well.
But Jesus is the best attorney you could ever need. And all you need.
This life is a veil. Fake. Shrouded with sin, lie, deceit.
You don't need to be like anybody but Jesus. And he didn't give a damn about money, the way you look, etc. (Vanity)
Isaiah 54:17 - the words of evil will never prevail against you (I believe relating to judgment when Satan and the fallen will try to damn you along them cause to persecution)> John 3:15-16 - learn this by heart.
