Some have been led to believe and been falsely taught Salvation is by the way of good works or living a good life. The Bible solemnly warns against this. No amount of good works will ever open heavens gates. And a good life, even the very best life will fall short of God’s standard of perfection. The truth is that salvation is just simply not obtained that way.
It doesn’t come by Baptism, Church Attendance, Burning Candles, Prayers to Saints, or contributions to worthy causes. Salvation is by Grace through Faith in Christ Alone.
Christ died for the sins of the entire World past, present and future, every living soul that has lived, died or will ever live. But Understand the He died for you too. When you realize this old things will pass away, your old desires and way of life, your old habits and old ambitions will fade away. All things will become new. You will learn and desire a new life, make new friends, unfortunately new enemies will be made, you will gain new power, and of course gain a Heavenly Father.
