MORNINGTIME 2039
 
Forasmuch as ye know that YE WERE NOT REDEEMED WITH corruptible things, as SILVER AND GOLD, from your vain conversation received BY TRADITION from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: 1 Peter 1:18-19. I want to tread carefully, and heavily here to make a serious point that cannot be overstated or overvalued. CHRIST DIED ON THE CROSS, SHED HIS PRECIOUS BLOOD, AND PAID IT ALL IN FULL. PERIOD. END OF DISCUSSION. Yes, there are people who don't fully understand the Blood of Christ, in time, they too will come into that Knowledge. But for the rest of us, NOTHING can be added to the Work of Christ, to pay for our sins and Redeem us from sin to Forgiven. You can't walk on your knees the 3 miles to church, you can't "do your best" to quit smoking, you can't play with a necklace and chant repeated prayers, you can't visit a certain number of houses for making "converts" to your religion, and wearing special magical underwear also does nothing for a positive outcome in eternity. ALL THESE THINGS, AND THE REST OF MAN'S STUPID IDEAS AND TRADITIONS SLAP CHRIST IN THE FACE AND TELL HIM, "Thanks for your good work, now I'll take over and finish the deal". "Thanks God, but I've got some great ideas up my sleeve that are sure to please you and get me into heaven". "Hey God, the Pope told me to do these certain things, AND I'M IN. He knows what he's talking about because even You God, listen to him". Can you see a pattern of Stupidity here? Do man's ways even start to look like Heresy? No, I'm not making fun, (well, maybe a little), but this is serious and people are dying and going to Hell thinking they are EARNING their way into Heaven. You can do or add NOTHING to the Work of Christ to help get you into Heaven. Follow church traditions and man's ideas, when you die, you go straight to Hell. Follow Christ Alone, die in Him alone, and, Be Blessed.
