THE SEEN AND THE NOT SEEN; THE TEMPORAL AND THE ETERNAL
John 15:22. From God's perspective there is no excuse for sin. Sin is simply being disobedient to God. It is in our human nature to sin. Sin started with Adam and Eve, our forefathers, in the Garden of Eden. Even though humans have a tendency to sin (steal, lust, idolize, and so on), we know in our heart of hearts that we are wrong.
Hebrews 11:1. Jesus came on this earth to save us from Hell and eternal separation from God. Jesus showed us how to live. He showed us that mankind can defeat death, and He gave us the plan of salvation. All we have to do is believe in Him that Jesus is the one way to salvation. This is challenging for most of us because what Jesus has done defies our five senses. He performed miracles.
Romans 1:20. Most people have at one time or another gotten caught up in the nature vs nurture debate. In this debate both sides take a position of why a person acts in a certain manner. Is it their environment that causes their actions or were they born that way?
What is Christian faith? Why is faith so important? How do you get faith?
These questions are key for understanding Christianity. Christianity and faith go hand in hand. No one can call themselves a Christian without faith in Jesus Christ. Hebrews 11:1 is a key scripture to begin to understand what is faith and how you get faith.
