Christianity 101

9 Jul

I love the way Francis explains Christianity. So many people get hung up on the fact that they are “good” people, and by the worlds standards they probably are. But if God did create everything, then He has the right to judge us based on His standards not ours. See God is a loving God, but He is also a just God. Having broken His laws, there is a penalty to be paid, and that penalty is death. It would be like if someone murdered one of your family members, and at the trial, the judge let him off because he had pity on him. That would not be justice right? We would say that judge was not a good and moral judge. I mean you would want the punishment to fit the crime. See because God is just, the crimes can not go unpunished. There must be justice. The Bible says we have all sinned and fall short of the mark. Rom 3:22-24 However, here is the best part, because God is also a loving God He gives us a get out of hell free card if you will. He sent His son Jesus Christ to take our punishment on himself. To pay the price so that we can live forever with Him. You don’t have to know everything about Him. You don’t have to get yourself all cleaned up before you come to Him. Come as you are. He died for us while we were still sinners. Rom 5:6-8 Accept the free gift He has given you. Put your trust in Him, and make Him the leader of your life. Check out this video Francis did.
