The Free Gift Of Eternal Life

Romans 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of different ways that people say a person can get to Heaven, or have eternal life. In 2015, beloved actor Leonard Nimoy died at age 83. Tragically, Mr. Nimoy placed his faith in the female goddess Shekinah. Biblically, we read in Acts 4:10-12 that there is no other name given among men to be saved, than the precious name of Jesus Christ...
Acts 4:10-12, “Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
I once stopped by a Korean store to look around. I noticed that they were selling many statues of the potbellied false prophet, Buddha. Hundreds-of-millions of people around the world are trusting in the name of Buddha to obtain eternal life, following the Satanic teachings of Buddha that living a good life leads to eternal happiness and peace. It doesn't! As you just read from the Holy Bible, their is no salvation in any other name than the precious name of JESUS! This is the truth! Sadly, Steve Jobs, David Bowie and Clint Eastwood have all professed faith in Buddhism.

Specifically, to be saved, you must solely BELIEVE that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, who died on the cross for your sins, and was buried, and was bodily resurrected after three days...
1st Corinthians 15:1-4, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”
The inspired Word of God plainly teaches, as evidenced by our text verse from Romans 6:23, that eternal life is the gift of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. If you don't trust Christ as your personal Savior, you will never see Heaven, and the Lake of Fire is the only other place you will spend eternity. People often ask why God lets people go to Hell, but where else can the wicked go? God's holiness demands justice, and justice requires that everyone be punished for their own crimes and wrong doing.

The Devil is very sneaky, continually trying to corrupt the churches with a false plan of salvation. May I say, kindly, any plan of salvation that requires something from you other than simply believing the Gospel (the Good News of Jesus Christ crucified, buried and risen) is a fraud! Eternal life is a free gift from God. Simply take God at His inspired Word dear friend. BELIEVE on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, trusting His death, burial and resurrection as your only means of salvation, and you will be instantly and forever saved. You have God's promise of it. John 6:47, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.”
