God’s love is extended to every human being regardless of their background or culture. Christ, God the Son, came to seek and to save that which was lost. God’s Word teaches that He is not slack concerning His promise, “but is long suffering to us-ward not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). Please consider the following truths based upon God’s Word.
“There is none righteous, no, not one:” – Romans 3:10
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” – Romans 3:23
Man’s great misunderstanding is that good people go to Heaven and bad people to go Hell.
“For the wages of sin is death . . .” – Romans 6:23
The “wage” or payment for our sin is death, which according to the Bible is eternal separation from God in a place called Hell.
“… and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” – Revelation 21:8
God loves us and wants us in Heaven, but our sin separates us from God.
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” – Romans 5:8
What did we owe? – Death (Romans 6:23)
What did Christ pay? – Death (Romans 5:8)
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved … For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” – Romans 10:9,13
After considering these truths, please understand that god the Father made Jesus Christ, God the Son, to be sin for us that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. The condition is that we believe, repent and receive Christ alone as the only way to Heaven.
