    There are many people who speak the right words but have the wrong heart. Many so-called Christians have learned the Christian vocabulary, but they do not know Christ. The mark of real Christian life is obedience. The first thing to obey is the gospel, to believe in Christ as Saviour and Lord. The word "in" is not strong enough in the English translation. In Greek, it is more like "into" So we could say that we need to believe "into" Christ.

    A recent survey in Australia shows that the vast majority of churchgoers do not identify with Christ. Other things are more important to most people. For many it is their politics, their sports team or some other worldly interest. Those people are dead in sin even though they say they believe. Newsflash: the devil believes, but he's going to the Lake of Fire.

    An honest sinner has far more hope than a fake churchgoer. God is far more willing to forgive than we are to be forgiven. If you will seek God honestly, no matter how messed up you are, He will deliver you. The Bible says that whoever calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved. If you keep asking Lord Jesus to help you, to deliver you, to take complete control of your life, He will start you on the road to freedom. God is merciful, gracious, loving and kind. He sent Jesus to die in your place. If you come to God saying that your only plea is that Jesus died for you, then He will accept you.

    Jesus gave a very scary warning in the Book of Matthew that those who fail to feed the hungry and clothe the naked will not make it to Heaven, even if they call him Lord.

    Read II Peter 1, Gal 5 fruit of HS, Matthew 25:41-46

    The false teachers try to imitate the gifts of the HS. Those who belong to Jesus manifests the fruit of the HS by our works. Eph 2:10

    For example, the early LDS aka Mormons spoke in tongues. But, their doctrine is from the pit of Hell itself. They do good works, but in their own power or strength.

    Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

    Matthew 7:16-22 King James Version (KJV)
    16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

    17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

    18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

    19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

    20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

    21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

    22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

    Galatians 5:22-25 King James Version (KJV)
    22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

    23 Meekness, temperance
    : against such there is no law.

    24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

    25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

    Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.



    "Calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, “Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to saving yourself, your true self. What good would it do to get everything you want and lose you, the real you? What could you ever trade your soul for?

    If Jesus is your Lord and Saviour, thank him for his constant forgiveness of your sins.
    If you know you have committed sins tell him and ask for forgiveness.
    You can trust Jesus's ability to include those sins you have forgotten or were not aware of.
    He died to save you and is not going to let your memory stop you from spending eternity with him.


    What did he mean. Jesus knows when wemean it. Those he was talking about did not mean what they were saying.

    It means that it is not enough to call Jesus, "Lord". We must also show mercy to the less fortunate.

    Perhaps searching, seeking, and hopefully finding other people who went thru similar experiences will help ? Finding people who totally recovered from such things, one way or another (but honestly, straightforward if they know) .... i.e. not being subject to suppressing their own thoughts, but 'healing' in them ..... some good way.... ?

    That's totally God's call. He saves people possibly daily, who are starting with cancer, ms, migraines, depression, ocd, szophreia, diabetes, and so on - so .....

    Spiritual salvation/eternal life and physical healing are not related.

    Not always, but they have been or can be ..... both /all as in the people Jesus and the Apostles healed were completely healed and saved at the same time, made completely WHOLE , and this can still happen today... (and has, according to some or many testimonies over the last 100 years )

    Jesus and apostles healed or even resurrected from dead hundreds or possible thousands of people.
    When Jesus was on the cross, there were 2 people with Him. John and His mother.

    Miracles were signs of the last days, not a proof of individual salvations.

    The reason we go to heaven and not hell is because of the Person and work of Jesus Christ. Focus on Him and not your 'sinlessness'.
