Christianity ?
What does it mean to be a Christian?
The word Christian implies a follower of Christ or a Christlike person, or perhaps one that represents Christ? It’s very hard to argue that where there is a true Christian application & education within a society or nation, 
the benefits bring overwhelming 
harmony & peace to individuals, families & society as a whole. I’m not talking about hypocritical Christianity & dead religion & tradition. I’m talking biblical based “real”, experienced & applied Christianity. It’s when we break these “God given” laws & refuse to live & judge our own lives by them, that individuals & societies break down. Increase in crime, family abuse & lack of love, human body abuse, verbal & sexual abuse, self worthlessness, depression & even sickness & disease are the results. Just as when we defy gravity we see the effects, the laws of this nation were originally put in place for 
protection. To uphold that which is good & right & to punish wrong, so is God’s laws, advice, directions, care & wisdom given to us to benefit us so much more,of which our current laws were derived. All that is good & perfect comes from God! Have you allowed God’s direction, love & laws to set boundaries & give direction in your life. Have you allowed His limitless power, forgiveness, love & guidance to influence your life? Let’s get back to basic good living,loving & obedienceto what is right! In todays world

The Truth Be Told!
It’s always refreshing when you know the truth about anything isn’t it? It brings a knowledge & satisfaction that allows you to rests assured that you have the right light on things. On the flip side of that, it’s interesting to note the stress & harm it brings to individuals when the truth is
not known & you are kept in the dark, or the information received has been false. The damage & consequences of living under these conditions can have damagingresults on people lives. Let me be truthful with you now . . .We are all living every day of our lives being deceived & lied to in regard to our understanding & truth about God! Yes, many people say many things, but is it the truth. We MUST only accept God’s word on such a subject. Let’s not live like an ostrich with our head stuck in the sand thinking we can’t be seen. We may fool others & perhaps at time even ourselves, but we cannot fool God. The sad fact is, that at sometime we have been told lies, that if we come to God He won’t accept us, or all the fun we are having disappears . . .
NO! God is a loving God, & His love, life & freedom He desires to pour out abundantly upon our lives is real! I have seen &  experienced this first hand. Lives healed, body, soul & spirit. God knows what is good for us & what is best for us. When we live our lives, seeking our own selfish goals & live apart from God, we will also pay the price for our actions & attitudes apart from God.....& That’s scary!  We should not run ‘from Him’, but rather ‘too
Him’! For He came to heal the broken hearted & set the captive free. To give life to it’s fullest & to 
lead us into His care & salvation from our ungodliness. Turn to Him & know the truth today!    
........You shall know the truth & the truth shall set you free!
He will meet you!

Does God love this world?
“For God so loved the world He gave His Only son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send His son to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already..”.(John 3:16-18 Bible). God loves the world & everything & everyone in it, there is no question of this! No matter what you have done or who you are, God’s loving arms are held open wide for you. He loves you! There is no-one or nothing that God’s love 
cannot reach to heal, forgive & set free. “For God So loved..”.
No-one can love like God does, as He is love, pure, holy, complete. When God says He loves you, then you have available the very favour & acceptance of God almighty.
“If God is for you then who can be against you.” I would rather the favour of God than the stamp of approval of any friend or king or prime minister. As God’s word cannot be broken & reaches into eternity. Why did He give His son?
God is Holy & sin cannot enter His presence. God Hates sin but loves the sinner. However the sinner if full of sin & must pay the consequences for that sin. “The wages of sin is death/hell, but the gift of God is eternal life”. The punishment for our own actions is far too much for us to bear, so God made a way for us to be pardoned, forgiven, set free from our due penalty which we deserve, by sending Jesus, God’s only loved & begotten son to come & pay the price for us. He took our place as a substitute. He took the 
punishment that we should rightfully receive for all our wrong, sin, selfishness, pride & greed, adultery, theft, murder & the list goes on & on. Now He offers it as a FREE gift & pardon. All we need to do is believe! If we do not believe we then stand condemned by our own sin & we must pay the price ourselves for rejecting God’s son Jesus, God’s free gift. though our sin be a scarlet, He will wash us white as snow”. He instructs us to “Repent for
the  kingdom of  God is at hand”. Turn to God & His salvation. 
What a great gift of love ...Jesus!
