Is Jesus Christ the Answer to Your Questions?
Why is the world the way it is? (filled with oppression, suffering, death and cruelty)
If God is all-knowing, all-powerful, and loving… would He really create a world like this?
What Kind of World Would You Create… If You Were God?
One in which man treated others with kindness and justice
One that is filled with love, cooperation and freedom
1. Our Loving God Created a Perfect Paradise for Mankind! (God is the Creator)
No suffering, death or oppression - only freedom to live a wonderful life.
Since God created all things, He is the master of all.
2. Man Demonstrated His Choice of Rebellion.
As a result of sin, the natural world was also cursed and began to die. The ground became less fertile and food became scarce. Man had to work harder to harvest much less. Mankind would also realize the effect that sin has on human relationships, leading to cruelty, murder, lust and causing disharmony within the family.
Mankind continues to sin, living in rebellion against God, the Creator. This is why the world is filled with suffering today. Man must take responsibility for destroying the perfection of God's creation.
Because of our sinfulness, man cannot know and experience God's love and fellowship, no matter how hard he may try to reach God on his own through good deeds, religious rituals or philosophies. "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23).
3. Because of God's Love for His Creation, Jesus Christ Died for Our Sins! (God is the Redeemer)
Jesus Christ is the only way to have our sins forgiven and to have a relationship with God which results in eternal life. "But God demonstrated His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans. 5:8). Jesus said "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me" (John 14:6).
4. One Day, Christ Will Return and Create a New Heaven and Earth:
A new paradise for those who have believed in Him and been forgiven of their sins.
We will spend eternity exploring God's new creation… How great that will be! Imagine having an eternity to discover the infinite creations of an all-knowing, all-powerful God!
We will praise God while in heaven for His work as Creator and Redeemer, "You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for You created all things, and by Your will they were created and have their being" (Revelation 4:11).
5. You Can Have Your Sins Forgiven and Have a Wonderful Relationship with God, Creator and Redeemer!
Trust God for eternal life in heaven, "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life"(John 3:16).
Trust God for fulfillment in your present life. "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full" (John 10:10).
This is the Most Important Decision of Your Life.
Don't put it off for another time. Accept God's gift of life today!
"God, I know that you are good and loving. You Created this wonderful world in perfection. Because of sin, it has been corrupted and awaits your renewing. I know that I am a sinner. Thank you for dying in my place and forgiving my sins. Thank you for giving me new life, both on earth and in heaven. Please help me to be committed to you and live in a way that is pleasing to you. In Jesus name, Amen."
If You Prayed this Prayer You can be Assured that Your Relationship with Jesus Christ has been Restored. You are no longer viewed by God as a sinner. God sees Christ's righteousness in you. "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things have passed away; behold, all things become new" (2 Corinthians 5:17).
