Genesis: 1:1,8

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth...Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness."

Romans 5:12

Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned.

Romans 3:23

All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Isaiah 9:6-7

For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will accomplish this.

Luke 2:10-11

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

John 3:16-20

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed."

John 14:6

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me."

John 11:25-26

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die. Do you believe this?”

Matthew 3:2

“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Romans 10:9

If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Revelation 22:10-11

And he said to me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near. Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and the one who is holy, still keep himself holy.”

Revelation 21:11-15

Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and books were opened; and another book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead which were in them; and they were judged, every one of them according to their deeds. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Revelation 22:12-13

“Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”

Revelation 4:8

“HOLY, HOLY, HOLY is the LORD God, the Almighty, who was and who is and who is to come.”

But I Have Many Questions and Doubts?

Do you have questions about Jesus, Christianity, religion in general? Do you have doubts about all this “religious stuff”?

  • Does God really exist?
  • How could the Bible possibly be true?
  • Aren’t there many paths to God?
  • Why does God allow evil and suffering?
  • Why are we being punished for Adam’s sin 6000 years ago?
  • Who is Jesus?
  • Was Jesus a real person?
  • Was Jesus really God?
  • Is there really a “devil” and “hell”?

I had many questions and lingering doubts, even after I was saved. That is normal, everyone has them. Don’t be afraid of them. Tackle them head-on and make informed decisions for yourself, not decisions based on speculation, myths or “popular opinion” or “what the crowd believes”. After all, it’s YOUR eternal destiny at stake, and nothing less!

Doesn’t Evolution Disprove the Bible?

Are you confused by evolution vs. creation? You were taught evolution in school, so it has to be true, right?

  • How can the Bible’s account of a literal 7-day creation by God possibly be true? Doesn’t science prove it wrong?
  • Isn’t the Earth “millions of years old”?
  • What about the dinosaurs?
  • Didn’t we evolve by chance or “lightning striking some primordial goo” puddle millions of years ago?
  • Didn’t we “evolve” from apes?

The answer to all of these is: no! Many Christian scientists have information that “other scientists” just don’t like, or want to hear. So that information is suppressed (or ignored) in schools. As a physicist myself, I struggled mightily with many of these questions for years! Read more with an open mind about all this stuff?

I Just Became a Believer…What Now?

You’re a new believer in Jesus Christ? But now, what do you do next? Where do you start? Who do you follow?

  • What church should I go to?
  • What Bible should I get?
  • How do I read the Bible?
  • Why so many church denominations?
  • How can I possibly understand the Bible, it’s so difficult to read?
  • What about all the church and pastor sex and money scandals?
  • What about pastors having million dollar jets and promise me riches?

A new believer is faced with many choices and decisions. In this section I’m going to write out what has worked (and not worked) for me. I’m not a pastor, I’m simply a believer and brother in Christ as the one true and living God and my LORD. Maybe some of the things that I have struggled with and things I’ve learned along the way can help you also.
