Romans 3:10 "As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one." No one is perfect.
No one has lived up to God's perfect standard. (James 2:10)
Isaiah 59:2 "But your iniquities have separated between you and your God,
and your sins have hid his face from you..."
Revelation 20:14,15 "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second
death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."
If we pay what we owe as sinners, we must spend an eternity in the lake of fire.
Revelation 21:8 "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murders, and
whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake
which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."
Hebrews 9:27 "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after the judgment"
Yes, the Bible techs that there is an eternal lake of fire whee religious, as well as ungodly,
sinners go who find no way of paying the penalty of their sin. No imperfect sinner
can pay his own sin debt because God demands a perfect sacrifice for sin.
II Corinthians 5:21 "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin;
that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him."
John 3:16 "for God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
I Peter 3:18a "For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust,
that he might bring us to God..."
When Jesus died on the cross, He paid for all of our sins and bridged the gap that separated
us from God. You must realize that Jesus Christ was not a sinner and that God took
all of our sins and placed them on Jesus at the cross. While Jesus was bearing all of our sins
in His own body, God punished Him in our place to pay the sin debt that we owe.
Jesus became our substititute. Praise the Lord!
Romans 6:23b "...but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ or Lord."
Romans 10:9,10 "That if thou shalt confess with they mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe
in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mounth confession
is made unto salvation."
Romans 10:13 "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
Why not trust Jesus now and pray?
Dear Lord Jesus, I realize that I am a sinner and that I deserve to pay my own sin debt. I believe You became my substitute on the cross, paying the sin debt I owe, and that Your shed blood, death, burial, and bodily resurrection from the grave were for me.
I do so now believe in You with all my heart and put my faith 100% totally in You alone as my Lord and Saviour. I now trust You to forgive me of all my sins and cleanse me with Your precious blood. Please save me from hell, and give me the wonderful gift of eternal life. Thank You, Lord Jesus, for saving me and making me Your child. Amen.
