I am responding to the letters ‘Mythic truth and literalism’ and ‘Questioning Gospel facts’ which appeared in the April 19 edition.
Atheists, agnostics and scoffers, there will always be - but the Bible means what it says!
God loves us so much, and it is vital that we have faith in the true Jesus Christ, who is revealed to us in the inspired words of the Holy Bible - not in the ideas and traditions of men!
Jesus Christ did die on the cross to take the punishment for our sins and opened up the way to God. If we don’t believe that he rose from the dead, our faith is useless and we are dead in ? sins!
1 John c1: v9 - ‘If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just, and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all righteousness’. If we claim we have not sinned, we make him out to be a liar, and his word has no place in our lives.
Living God’s way brings blessings in a Christian’s life. We can experience joy, peace and happiness as never before, if we follow the teachings of Jesus Christ!
Receiving him into our hearts and surrendering everything to him - this is what God is looking for in a Christian - Jesus said ‘ I will never leave you or forsake you, I am with you always until the end of time’.
