What I Believe.
You've heard the lectures.. you've been to church, maybe church(es). You feel like everything is the same and people are getting on your nerves with the same.. "You're going to hell! blah blah.. Jesus is the way! Christ died for yeew! Beliiieve in his son!" You've given up on religion. God. Nothing works. It's all fake and ellaborated. Did you ever try to look past the way people put it and see the real story?
My story is what I believe.
I believe that somone actually made a sacrifice for me. (Saying sacrafice, I'm saying that he took my place for having to pay for all the stupid things I've done in my life. That's alot, haha.) I find it hard to believe that one of the greatest things out there could actually love me so much as to give their life for me so I wouldn't have to suffer my own consequences. I believe in Jesus. God (as many know his name). He knows me inside and out (as much as I've tried to deny it) He's someone I can call.. "my first dad", haha, so to speak. Without God, I wouldn't be here. If he never loved me, I wouldn't be here. I believe in saying thank you. Pretty much saying, "Thanks for saving my life." None of that, speaking in tongue.. none of that, "what you have to say isn't good enough" kind of stuff because blah blah. He doesn't care how I say it. He loves however I say it. Basically an ex
What is heaven? I've heard heaven described in some interesting ways that umm.. haha, can be confusing. Heaven is basically the good place. Heaven is everything good. Imagine a world where nothing bad ever happens. Nothing but pure bliss 24/7. Pretty great and.. possible.
Want to know how to get there?
First off, and honestly one of the most ridiculous things I've heard is.. "Be a good person". People, this is stupid. Yes, be a good person. Being a good person is all well and dandy, but this will NOT get you into heaven. The only thing that will get you into the best place in the world is to be perfect. That means.. you've never done anything bad in your life. If you have, you have to pay for it. The penalty.. death. Haa! And uhh let's see.. that would be... everyone. I guess we're all doomed, right? Wrong. Human sacrifice? Nope. Super awesome ceremony? Nope. One thing. Forgiveness. But.. you say, anyone can offer forgiveness. Yes, but they would have to be perfect. The only perfect person is well.. the only one that can save us. God, or Jesus (same thing pretty much). And.. the only thing we have to do is say, "I know you can save me. Forgive me because well.. I'm not perfect. I'm sorry. Please take control of my crazy life and guide me through it.." (Or however you put it) And he says, yes. Your debt has been paid and you're free. It's that easy. You can't lose it. He's always there to say yes again. Why? The typical, but true answer of, he loves you more.
I see it as a big story book/life guide. Some of them have fancy words, but basically, it tells you how to have a good life. It tells of how he helped people back when and it tells of what's going to happen. Pretty much everything, haha. What you need to know. Try to get past the whole, "world look"of thou! and thouest art!. Read it as you would your history book. Like a map for your journey. Let it help you and take it's knowledge wherever you go.
And... at last closing.. this has been another opinion of Rachel . Love it or hate it, I'm just saying what I think playa's.
