A few days ago my granddaughter, Tara, called and said, “PopPop, on your Blog, why not explain to people how to witness to others.”
What a great idea!! — So I have done it. It will be expanded as I have time.

Thanks Tara!! — I love you!!
This rendition of Amazing Grace by three year old Zoi Toh is truly Amazing.
Those great and well known “Christian” experts, former Presidents Jimmah Cahtah, Bill Clinton and many other Baptist leaders met in Atlanta for what was called “Celebration of a New Baptist Covenant.” Also attending were Obama, (Church of Christ) and Hillary, (United Methodist Church).[BOLD represents my emphasis and comments]
Included were …. Baptists from throughout North America and former members of the Southern Baptist Convention [who were] upset by its rightward shift. Carter was a lead organizer of the event.
“Thousands of participants prayed and held hands across a massive exhibit hall at the first session Wednesday night. Carter, a longtime Bible teacher at his ., church, called the three-day gathering “the most momentous event in my religious life.”
He [Carter] called animosity among Christians “a cancer metastasizing in the body of Christ.”
This is a great illustration of the lie of modern religious ecumenism which is forging the platform for the New World Order and the New World Religion of the last days.
The former president insisted the meeting was strictly religious, not political. [Even though] It is being held just days before Feb. 5, when 24 states will hold presidential primaries or caucuses.
Former and are among the major speakers. Earlier in the day, at a separate meeting of the black Baptist groups, Sens. and spoke about their presidential candidacies.
Critics have dismissed the event as little more than a Democratic rally.
We concur — except, instead of Democrat. they should say Extreme Liberal.. (Same thing).
However, they all heavily emphasize Scripture on social justice.
This is nothing more than spreading the “social gospel” — which is no gospel at all.
Carter and many other Baptists severed ties with the Southern Baptist Convention when conservatives took control of the denomination in the 1970s and 1980s, waging a bitter fight over interpreting the Bible.
Excerpts from a news article here.Thu Jan 31,2008
This ecumenical meeting of those who call themselves “Christians” never mention nor promote the main tenet of Christian Theology, The Gospel of Jesus Christ, the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus to pay the sin debt for every person in the world — and by putting our trust in Jesus, we have eternal life. These folks are preaching and organizing a world-wide anti-Biblical movement which dilutes the Gospel in favor of a false “do-good” religion of works/deeds. This organization of theological liberals is contrary to God’s Word!
Now, here is the Good News:
Let’s clear the air. After reading many comments on this Blog, I am even more convinced that religions and people make eternal life and Heaven a real task, something for which we must work and toil.
Please take a few minutes to read this important post. Your eternity may well depend upon what you do with these facts.
Eternal life is NOT a process. It is NOT a matter of “doing.” It IS an understanding of Who Jesus Christ is, What He has done and Why He has done it for you. Then you may see the wisdom of trusting Jesus for what He promised.
Think carefully on these things.
You, me, everyone — we are all imperfect, by nature and deed. This imperfection the Bible calls “sin.” We have missed the absolute mark of God’s perfection.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
God, in His Righteousness, has declared a penalty for your sin, which is spiritual death, separation from God for all eternity. This means ALL of us, from the nicest person you know to the worst, the preacher, the politician, the Pope, everyone — but you specifically. We are all in the same boat!
“For the wages [what we earn] of sin is death; ……”
Sounds hopeless, right? Then, on top of that, God’s word says you must be as perfect as God Himself to have Eternal life and Heaven. Who would ever qualify?
“And there shall in no wise enter into it [Heaven] any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie….”
EVEN MORE HOPELESS ??
Sounds like it. Not even a lie? Continue to read — it does get better.
Mankind is incapable of making himself good enough for eternal life and can do nothing of himself to obtain this necessary perfection.
“For by grace [unmerited or undeserved favor] are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves it [saved] is the gift of God, Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
NOT HOPELESS WHEN WE SEE GOD’S GRACE !!
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us,…..”
Try as hard as you may, you can never BE “good enough” to earn salvation or eternal life. You MUST rely completely upon God’s Gift of eternal life in Christ, freely given and then freely received by you.
THEN COMES GOD’S MERCY AND GRACE!!!
How can this happen when all mankind is so soiled, corrupt, thoroughly apart and separated from a Holy God?
Mercy! Grace! The Miracle of God’s Love is shown in His Mercy that God Himself, while we were yet sinners provided a sin-bearer in our place. This Sin-Bearer is Jesus Christ [God in the flesh] who paid the penalty you deserve to pay. He then imputes to you (reckons or gives to your account) His righteousness when you believe or trust in Him.
2 Corinthians 5:21
“For he [God] hath made Him [Christ] to be sin for us, Who [Christ, being perfect] knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him [Christ].
Jesus Christ is your substitute in eternal spiritual death. He took your death penalty upon Himself on the Cross, rose from the grave in three days and offers Eternity, Heaven freely to you when you believe Him for it.
THEN THE GOOD NEWS!!
How can that be? You need only believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as YOUR personal Savior to receive His salvation.
“For God so loved the world [you, me and everyone], that He gave [His Gift to you] His only begotten Son [Jesus Christ], that whosoever believeth [trusts] in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
That, my friend, is the Good News, The Gospel. Everlasting life is your Gift from God when you personally believe or trust in Jesus Christ to be your Savior.
Please understand that once you make this one time decision, you can be absolutely certain of your salvation right now, and that you can NEVER be lost — because eternal life is ETERNAL [without end] by God’s promise.
In John 10:28, Jesus Hinself said:
“And I [Jesus] give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”
1 John 5:13
“These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God [Jesus]; that ye may KNOW that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.”
What a wonderful declarative statement from God Himself, offering you assurance that, once you trust Jesus as your Savior, it is a forever, unbreakable promise God makes to you. This promise is from the God of the Universe. He seals His eternal promise with His Holy Spirit within you, indwelling you forever. You have the eternal benefit of His Gift.
Friend, will you right now, the best you know how, trust Jesus Christ alone to be YOUR Savior? He guarantees you eternal life in Heaven.
You have read this and seen the Scripture. You now know the truth of salvation in God’s Word. Right now, you WILL make a decision to either believe in Jesus Christ alone as your Savior, or you will choose to reject this, His offer of eternal life.
Please choose to trust Jesus alone to be YOUR Savior right now. Study this verse carefully:
“He that believeth on Him [Jesus Christ] is not condemned but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the Name [Jesus Christ] of the only begotten Son of God.“
If you do not make your decision FOR Christ, then you have decided, “NO!” And by God’s Word, you do not have eternal life!!
Friend, if you are not sure of Heaven or Eternal Life, I urge you right now, just as you are; simply trust Jesus Christ for who He is – God in the Flesh, who came to earth, died on the cross for you – to pay for all your sins. He arose from the grave proving He is God.. and pleads with you right now to receive (believe on) Jesus Christ as your Savior. He paid the price for your eternity with Him in Heaven. Please trust Him as YOUR Savior now..
If you made that decision you are wise. You will NEVER regret it. Now, there are some things you should do as a new believer, NOT to secure your eternal life, but BECAUSE you now HAVE eternal life.
