And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved? And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: FOR WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. Mark 10:26-27. Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because STRAIT is the gate, AND NARROW is the way, WHICH LEADETH UNTO LIFE, and few there be that find it. Matthew 7:13-14. There are no religions out there by which a man can be saved, NONE. Religion is nothing more than man's rules and regulations on how man thinks, or wants to believe, he can be "saved". Man's heart is deceitfully wicked, who can know it. Every man, or woman, who has ever founded a religion, has done so with their likes and dislikes, wants, and "fun" things to do, built in. Then it's always easy to get followers because all their followers are LIKE MINDED. The Muslims like to rape and kill, the Baptists like to "Repeat this prayer", the Catholics like pomp and circumstance with a like-minded authority figure over them. And the list goes on. Christianity is Relationship. Man can do NOTHING to be saved. Christ came TO man to offer him free Salvation, fully Paid For by the Shed Blood of Christ. To be a Christian, is to be Growing INTO and be LIKE CHRIST, to Love, Do, and Think as Christ Loves, Does, and Thinks. That's just it, the Followers of Christ ARE THAT, Followers of Christ. And to go even one step further, they Love to do the Things He asks them to do, THE WAY HE WANTS THEM TO DO THEM. That's why it says He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, because without Christ, there is no way, no truth, and no life. That means ALL RELIGIONS ARE DEAD, they can have NO life without Christ. (Remember, learning curve here). All Christians will do ALL things, His Way. They are 100% IN, with Christ. This is so important, He sent the Holy Spirit to help you, Seek Christ, Follow Him, and, Be Blessed.
