Escape Wrath, Find Freedom

A person convicted of sin is eager to get rid of their guilt. Some quickly get to Jesus and find freedom and healing. Others end up in a system of morality.

A Careful Definition of Repentance

Repentance is indispensable to salvation. However, much confusion exists in the world and the church about repentance.

Heaven’s Makeover

Jesus said, “No one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” This new birth is heaven's makeover of the heart and soul.

Jesus said, “Out of the heart of man proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, and blasphemies.” God's salvation is to cure this root of evil: to change an evil heart into a clean, pure, holy heart.

One Thing You Lack

Do you believe in Jesus, but have no assurance that you're saved? If so, it almost always boils down to one thing that you're unwilling to yield to God. For example, Jesus said to the rich young ruler, “One thing you lack. Go, sell everything you have, and give to the poor, and you will...

More than Good News

The gospel is more than good news that I just “believe.” Modern teachers let down both the requirements and benefits of the gospel. To them, salvation is from God's wrath, and nothing else. And, to them, a verbal confession of belief will save you. But will this really save you from hell? What did the...
