Salvation for Dummies was Penned & Compiled By Peter O'Neill for 21st Century Christianity
Have you ever watched a Pro Ball Player teach or play with a bunch of kids? You'll never see him trying to show how great he is. Instead he tries to encourage and help the kids... He makes it easy and fun and Inspires them to understand and do well. When God sent his Son Jesus to earth... Jesus didn't need to show how smart he was or how powerful he was.
We could take all that man knows and all the power that man has... multiply that by infinity and still not even begin to scratch the most minute fragment of God's Power, Knowledge and Wisdom. So When Jesus spoke... he didn't speak in complicated or hard to understand words... He Knew some of us where Dummies. Everything He Said Was Simple and Clear... So That Even A Child Could Get It.
For God So Loved The World That He Gave His Only Begotten Son... That Whosoever Believes in Him... Sould Not Perish, But Have Everlasting Life. John 3:16
For All Have Sinned and Come Short of The Glory of God! Romans 3:23
He That Believes On The Son "Has" Everlasting Life. John 3:36
You Mean All You Have To Do... Is Believe That Jesus Died for Your Sins To Be Saved ... You Don't have to attend a weekly church meeting... You don't have to fast and pray... You don't have to work off your debt of Sin to God?
Nope... You Don't.
It's Great to go to church and gather with other Christians and if you don't you will become dry and dead spiritually. It's Good to Pray and Fast and Do a hundred other things that God's Word so clearly outlines, but your salvation depends on none of those works or efforts on your part. Salvation is a BIG FAT GIFT... You've just got to Receive It.
End of Story
For All Us Dummies... That's That...
One Last Point
The Word Salvation comes from the Greek Word "SOZO" and it doesn't just mean being saved when you die. If You're Sozo 'd...
Salvation is Not Just Pie In The Sky... BUT IT STARTS FROM THE MOMENT YOU BELIEVE and continues all the way through Eternity!
It Is The Best and Most Wonderful Life...
Right Here... Right Now... And Forever.
Sozo... This Is True Salvation
And That Is What The Lord Gives To Every Person That Receives Him!
The Greatest, Coolest...
Most Fabulous Thing In Life
"The Cats Pajamas"
The Wisdom Of This World
Is Foolishness To God BUT...
The Seeming Dummies...
This Most Important of Points...
Are Wise In God's Eyes.
1 Corinthians 1:18-31
18For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
19For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
20Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
21For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. (Those Seeming Dummies)
22For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
23But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
24But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
25Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
26For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
27But God hath chosen the foolish things (Dummies) of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
28And (the Dummies) base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
29That no flesh should glory in his presence.
30But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
31That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
