How to Accept Jesus as Saviour

What does it mean to accept Jesus as Saviour? Does mankind need a Saviour? How do you accept Jesus as Lord & Saviour?
To understand why we need Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour and how to accept Him in your life, we must first understand what sin is; who Jesus Christ is and why Jesus had to die on the cross.

 

What is Sin?
Sin is any thought, decision or action that rebels or transgresses the law & principles of God.
The Bible tells us that man is sinful and unrighteous (Romans 3:10; Romans 3:23). All of mankind has a sin nature as a result of the sin of Adam which occurred in Genesis 3.
Romans 5:12 says “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned”.
The sin nature or flesh is the part of man that does not think with God nor can it please God. Every person is born with the sin nature in them.
The New Testament Greek word is sarx. Kenneth Wuest defines sarx as “the totally depraved nature as dominating the unsaved individual.”
The works or characteristics of the flesh or sin nature are found in Galatians 5:19-21.
The person who has never accepted Jesus as Saviour only has this sin nature inside him and also controlling how he lives. Therefore his internal motives, goals and lifestyle are governed by the flesh or sin nature.

 

The Wages of Sin
Romans 6:23 tells us that the wages of sin is death. This death that is spoken of in Romans 6:23 means eternal separation from God or hell.
Therefore if there is no intervention from a Saviour pertaining to sin or the sin nature in your life, the eventual result of living as an unsaved person is eternity in hell.
Sin or the sin nature also hinders us from having right fellowship with God.
Before a perfect, holy and just God our sins are likened as debts to God for which we cannot pay those debts (Matthew 6:12). Failure for those debts to be paid results in eternal punishment.
This is why we all need a Saviour – Jesus Christ.

 

Jesus Christ & His Life, Death & Resurrection
John 1:1,14 tell us that Jesus is God who took human form to dwell among the people. Jesus came to earth to teach us and guide us. He also lived as an example for us. Most importantly, He lived a perfect, sinless life which qualified Him to pay for our sins which we cannot pay. Jesus Christ’s death on the cross was His payment and sacrifice for the sins of the world (John 3:16).
Jesus Christ did not come to die for the righteous – because there are no righteous people (Romans 3:10).
Rather, Jesus came to die for sinners and pay the debt of sinners and in doing so He became our Saviour.
Luke 5:31-32 says, Jesus answered and said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. 32 I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”

 

How To Accept Jesus As Saviour
How do you accept Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour? The Bible tells us that we accept Jesus Christ as Saviour through placing our faith or total trust in Him. There are over 50 verses that speak of salvation being through faith in Jesus Christ.
Accepting Jesus Christ as our Saviour requires us to believe that salvation is only by Christ alone (John 14:6) and that only Jesus Christ is the one who paid for our sins on the cross. Therefore eternal life and a relationship with God is possible only by accepting Jesus as Saviour through faith.
Salvation is a FREE gift. Accepting Jesus Christ is not based on your personal works or merit (Ephesians 2:8,9). Salvation is by grace through faith in Christ.

Romans 10:9-10 NKJV
That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Romans 10:13 NKJV
For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

John 1:12 NKJV
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name

 

Why Not Make Your Eternal Decision NOW? Accept Jesus as Saviour.

We become born again Christians by GRACE through FAITH or TOTAL TRUST in Jesus Christ as our Lord & Savior (Galatians 3:26) & (Ephesians 2:8,9). Salvation is a FREE gift received through FAITH in Christ.

PLEASE NOTE: You can choose to pray in your own words. This prayer is a sample prayer and it is only an EXPRESSION of your faith, belief & trust in Jesus. Salvation is by GRACE through FAITH or BELIEVING in Christ Jesus as your Lord & Saviour.

“Lord Jesus, I thank You for Your love. I thank You that You died on the cross for me and resurrected so that I may have life through You.
I confess Lord that I have sinned against You and today I ask You to forgive me of all of my sins, past present and future.
I repent of all of my sins and I ask You to cleanse me Jesus.
Thank You for forgiving my sins.
From this moment, come into my life Lord Jesus & take full control of my life. I want to follow You Jesus and I want to follow Your ways. Save me and from today, make me the person You want me to be.
I receive You Lord Jesus right now by faith. I trust You as my Lord and Savior – Amen”

How Do I Avoid Going To Hell?

 

 

 

 

How does a person end up going to hell and what does that person need to do in order to avoid going to hell?

What is Hell?
In Matthew 25:41 we learn that hell is a terrifying place of eternal punishment which God originally prepared for the devil and the fallen angels. However, people will also go to hell according to the scriptures.
Hell is described in the following ways:
a) It is a place of everlasting fire (Matthew 25:41)
b) It is a place of outer darkness (Matthew 22:13; Matthew 25:30)
c) It is a place of weeping & gnashing of teeth (Matthew 22:13; Matthew 25:30)
d) It is a place of eternal torment (Luke 16:22-28)
e) It is a lake of fire burning with brimstone (Revelation 19:20)

What Kind of People Will Go To Hell?
The Bible tells us that all people are sinners and fall short of God’s glory (Romans 3:23). Therefore the whole of mankind has sinned or transgressed against an infinite and holy God (Romans 3:10).
The Bible then tells us that the wages of sin is death which is eternal separation from God (Romans 6:23).
Therefore all mankind deserves to go to hell. However, despite the fact that mankind deserves to go to hell, God offers us forgiveness by His grace through Jesus Christ. Romans 6:23 further says that the FREE GIFT of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ.
Romans 6:23For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Salvation is a gift of God. It is free and can only be received through believing and accepting Jesus Christ as personal Lord & Saviour.
John 1:12 says “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name”.

What Kind of People Will Go To Hell? People who reject Jesus Christ and the free gift of eternal life that He offers will go to hell.
Jesus Christ paid our penalty for sin. He bore our sins on the cross (1 Peter 2:24) so that if we accept His work on the cross and receive Him as Lord then we will have eternal life.
Therefore if a person rejects a relationship with Jesus Christ; if that person also rejects the work of Christ on the cross and His payment for our sins at Calvary, it would mean hell for such a person.

Ephesians 2:8,9 tells us that salvation is a free gift received by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
Salvation is NOT by personal effort or our personal ability. Therefore you cannot earn your way to Heaven. Some people believe they can earn their way to Heaven through their personal charitable works; or through trying to obey the 10 commandments; or through obeying certain religious rites and rituals. These views are not correct.
Avoiding hell is easier than we think and it is only through accepting Jesus Christ (John 3:16).

 

How Do I Avoid Going To Hell?
It is a simple thing to avoid going to hell. The Bible is clear that there is only ONE WAY to avoid going to hell. Jesus Christ.
John 14:6Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”.
To avoid going to hell, we must through faith receive and put our trust in Jesus Christ as our Lord & Saviour. Without faith in Jesus we cannot become children of God. John 1:12 says “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name” and Galatians 3:26 says “For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus”.

Salvation through Christ is a gift from God. Nobody earns or works for a gift but a gift is freely given by the giver. Salvation is by grace and not by works.
Ephesians 2:8,9 says “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast”.

 

Do You Want To Avoid Going To Hell?
God does not desire for anyone to go to hell. God wants us all to avoid going to hell.
2 Peter 3:9 says “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance”.
Jesus Christ paid the ultimate sacrifice for our sins so that we would not perish in hell. Jesus Christ paid the debt we could not pay. He bore our sins and He took our punishment (1 John 2:2).
If you want to avoid going to hell, simply accept and trust in Jesus Christ to be your Lord & Saviour today (John 1:12; John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8,9).
It is that simple – because salvation is a free gift you receive by simply trusting in Jesus Christ as your Lord & Saviour.

 

 

Today, if you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord & Saviour and if you want to avoid going to hell simply believe and trust in Jesus Christ and allow Him to take Lordship over your life.

 

Why Not Make Your Eternal Decision NOW?

We become born again Christians by GRACE through FAITH or TOTAL TRUST in Jesus Christ as our Lord & Savior (Galatians 3:26) & (Ephesians 2:8,9). Salvation is a FREE gift received through FAITH in Christ.

PLEASE NOTE: You can choose to pray in your own words. This prayer is a sample prayer and it is only an EXPRESSION of your faith, belief & trust in Jesus. Salvation is by GRACE through FAITH or BELIEVING in Christ Jesus as your Lord & Saviour.

“Lord Jesus, I thank You for Your love. I thank You that You died on the cross for me and resurrected so that I may have life through You.
I confess Lord that I have sinned against You and today I ask You to forgive me of all of my sins, past present and future.
I repent of all of my sins and I ask You to cleanse me Jesus.
Thank You for forgiving my sins.
From this moment, come into my life Lord Jesus & take full control of my life. I want to follow You Jesus and I want to follow Your ways. Save me and from today, make me the person You want me to be.
I receive You Lord Jesus right now by faith. I trust You as my Lord and Savior – Amen”

Where Do We Go When We Die?

Have you ever asked yourself these questions: Where do we go when we die? Do we just return to dust? Do we simply seize to exist in any form? Is there such a place as hell, purgatory or heaven?

The Bible is very clear on what happens to people after their physical death. There are only 2 places that a person will eventually go to when he/she dies.
A person will eventually either go to heaven or he will go to hell.
Whether you go to heaven or go to hell is totally dependent upon your freewill and the critical spiritual choices that you make in your life.

How Does A Person Go To Heaven When He Dies?
1 John 5:12 says: “He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God”.
Therefore the person who has received and accepted Jesus Christ as Lord & Saviour will have eternal life because they believe that Christ paid for their sins on the cross.
In John 14:2-6 Jesus says the following: “In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you… I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”.
Jesus clearly tell us that on He is the pathway to Heaven and towards a relationship & fellowship with the Father. Therefore after our physical death, there is no other method or path to Heaven except through Jesus Christ.
Jesus also says that He is the One who prepares a place or home for us in Heaven so that when we die He is already prepared to receive us.
Salvation is not found through your pastor or through your religion or through your local church. Salvation and our home in Heaven is only found through Jesus Christ. Acts 4:12 says: “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved”.

How Does A Person Go To Hell When He Dies?
God does not send people to hell – but rather people choose hell out of their own freewill choices. It’s not God’s desire for people to perish or to go to hell. 2 Peter 3:9 says: “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance”.
Therefore God will not force anybody to go to Heaven and neither will He force people into hell. Rather, it is God’s desire that ALL would be with Him in Heaven. However, God has given every person freewill – or the ability to make their own choices. People are not machines or animals which live according to programed instructions or instincts. Instead as people who have been made in God’s image, we have the ability to make our own decisions.
Hell therefore is a choice many people take. So how does a person choose hell?
The choice of rejecting Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour is the reason why people go to hell when they die. If a person rejects the finished work of Christ on the cross in payment for the sins of the world, such a person will not enter the kingdom of God.
Revelation 20:15 says: And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
A person will only find his/her name written in the Book of Life when that person genuinely believes and accepts Christ as Lord and Saviour.
If one’s name is not found in the Book of Life due to their rejection of Christ & the His finished work on the cross, that person will be thrown into the lake of fire for eternity.
John 3:18-19 says: “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil”.
Therefore hell is for people whom through rejecting Christ automatically opt for “darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil”. According to John 3:18 that person is walking in condemnation for as long as Christ is not that person’s Lord & Saviour. That person according to Romans 2:5 is storing up wrath for himself on the day of God’s judgment.

How Do You Receive Jesus Christ As Lord & Saviour?
Salvation and eternal life is a FREE gift from God. You do not have work for your salvation because Christ already paid for your sins. Instead, all we have to do in order to receive Christ is to receive Him by faith as Saviour.
Romans 6:23 and Ephesians 2:8,9 tells us that eternal life is a free gift and that our salvation is not as a result of our own effort but our salvation is a result of the work of Christ.
John 1:12 says: “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name”.
Without Christ we cannot become children of God. It’s only through believing and accepting Jesus Christ into our lives by faith that we become part of the family of God for eternity.
Our position as God’s children through Jesus Christ gives us access to God’s kingdom when we die.

 

DO YOU WANT TO BE A CHRISTIAN or A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST???

1. ACKNOWLEDGE: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). “God be merciful to me a sinner” (Luke 18:13).
You must acknowledge that you are a sinner and that you therefore need Jesus in your life.

2. REPENT: “Unless you repent you will all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3), “Repent therefore and be converted that your sins may be blotted out” (Acts 3:19)
Repenting means: to change your mind; a sincere turning away, in heart, mind and action;
Therefore God wants you to repent of sinful values and of sinful living. God wants you to decide to
follow Him and to make Jesus the Lord of your life.

3. CONFESSION: “If we confess our sins. He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9)
God is a forgiving God. God will forgive any sin that you have done because Jesus died for ALL your sins and to set you free from the bondage of all types of sin in your life.

4. BELIEVE: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
You must believe that ONLY Jesus can save you and restore your relationship with God. You must believe that Jesus is the ONLY way by which you can have everlasting life and escape from eternal separation from God. You must believe that Jesus died on the cross for you and resurrected from the grave.
“He came to His own, and His own did not receive him, But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name” (John 1:11-12)
By faith, You must receive Jesus as Your Lord & Savior and therefore; you become a child of God; you become born again; you become a Christian; you restore your broken relationship with God.

 

Why Not Make Your Eternal Decision NOW?

We become born again Christians by GRACE through FAITH or TOTAL TRUST in Jesus Christ as our Lord & Savior (Galatians 3:26) & (Ephesians 2:8,9). Salvation is a FREE gift received through FAITH in Christ.

This prayer is ONLY an EXPRESSION of your faith, belief & trust in Jesus.

“Lord Jesus, I thank You for Your love. I thank You that You died on the cross for me and resurrected so that I may have life through You.
I confess Lord that I have sinned against You and today I ask You to forgive me of all of my sins, past present and future.
I repent of all of my sins and I ask You to cleanse me Jesus.
Thank You for forgiving my sins.
From this moment, come into my life Lord Jesus & take full control of my life. I want to follow You Jesus and I want to follow Your ways. Save me and from today, make me the person You want me to be.
I receive You Lord Jesus right now by faith. I make You my Lord and Savior – Amen”

Does God Forgive Big Sins?

Does a murderer, or a thief, or a rapist deserve to go to heaven? Do such people deserve God’s forgiveness?

Have you ever thought you were “better” than somebody else? Did you ever think that you are more “righteous” than another person – or that you are “too good” to be in the company of other people?

The scribes and the Pharisees did. They thought that they were “holy” and “righteous” people who were too good to be in the company of certain people – especially sinners.
However, thankfully Jesus did not have that kind of mindset.

Luke 18:9-14 NKJV
Also He spoke this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: 10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.  11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, ‘God, I thank You that I am not like other men — extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector.  12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.’  13 And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, ‘God, be merciful to me a sinner!’  14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

The Bible says that there is none who is righteous (Romans 3:10) or that there is none who is better or holier than the other. The truth is we are ALL sinners and we ALL have fallen short of God’s glory (Romans 3:23).

Therefore we ALL need Jesus Christ to be our Lord and Savior. We ALL need salvation. We ALL need God’s forgiveness.

Our own merit and personal good works are not good enough for God (Isaiah 64:6). It’s only by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ do we receive the gift of salvation (Ephesians 2:8,9).

  • In the Bible God forgave a man by the name of Paul who persecuted & killed Christians but he ended up writing half of the New Testament under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit after he got saved.
  • In the Bible God forgave a man by the name of David who committed adultery and yet God referred to David as being a man after God’s own heart.
  • In the Bible God forgave a man by the name of Moses who murdered an Egyptian but God used him to free the Jews from slavery in Egypt.
  • In the Bible God forgave a woman who was caught in the act of adultery even though the Pharisees wanted her to be stoned to death.
  • In the Bible God forgave a thief who was crucified right next to Christ. Jesus promised the thief that he would be with Him in paradise that day.

There are so many stories in the Scriptures that demonstrate God’s goodness and love towards people who have done terrible things.

Nobody is perfect but only God is perfect. God’s love for us is unconditional. God forgives us of all our sins and He does not remember them because of the blood of Christ in payment for our sins.

God’s love motivates Him to extend His grace & mercy to all of us in spite of our faults & sins. It’s the goodness of God in our lives that leads us to repentance (Romans 2:4).

 

Luke 5:30-32 NKJV
And their scribes and the Pharisees complained against His disciples, saying, “Why do You eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?” 
Jesus answered and said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.

When Jesus was accused of spending too much time with sinners and wrong-doers, Jesus told the Pharisees that He did not come to save the “righteous” but that He came to save the sinners and to bring sinners to repentance.

Therefore if ALL have sinned that means that the Pharisees themselves have sinned and they too needed Jesus to help them repent. In God’s eyes, sin is sin. The person who steals $1 is just a sinner as the one who steals $100.
The problem with the Pharisees was that they were so full of pride that they did not realize that they too were sinners who needed Jesus as well.
They thought that being religious leaders made them to think that they were an exclusive and righteous group. They also presumed that the Scriptures were also meant for the “righteous” and not for sinners.

Jesus however is not exclusive. The Lord is open to ANYONE who comes to Him and He will not reject any sinner who comes to Him (John 6:37). You may have done terrible things and you may have sinned just a few moments ago, but Jesus will receive you with a smile and with open arms if you repent and come to Him. For He says “I say to you that likewise there will be MORE JOY in heaven over ONE SINNER who REPENTS than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance”Luke 15:7 NKJV

If you are sick with a contagious disease like flu or chicken pox, your doctor cannot diagnose your sickness and help you recover unless he first spends time examining you or your body so that he may advise you regarding your ailment.
Therefore just as disease is a foreign component in the body of a person, then sin too is a foreign component in the life of a person and both need a Physician to remove them from one’s life.

Matthew 4:17 NKJV
From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Jesus spoke a message of forgiveness & repentance. Jesus was calling on people to no longer live a life of sin or a life contrary to God’s love. Jesus was teaching people to live a life of love for God, a love for others and a life of righteousness in Christ.

Only Jesus was sinless and perfect and that is why He became the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world, so that whoever would believe and receive Him would be made righteous in Christ.
Romans 5:19 NKJV – “For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous”
Therefore we are NOT righteous by our OWN obedience; we are RIGHTEOUS by CHRIST’s OBEDIENCE. We are NOT saved by our OWN works; we are SAVED by GOD’s GRACE.
Therefore all the glory belongs to God. Salvation is the work of God.

 

Matthew 4:19-20 NKJV
Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” They immediately left their nets and followed Him.

The Pharisees should have been more like Jesus. Rather than distancing themselves from sinners – they should have focused on bringing sinners or unbelievers to God.

Does God forgive big sins? YES He does.

 

If you are not a Christian, call on Christ now and BELIEVE that He will answer you. There is nothing more that God wants than for you to be part of His kingdom.
REPENTANCE means “to change one’s mind and purpose”. Therefore set your mind on Jesus everyday of your life and allow God to give you purpose and direction in life

DO YOU WANT TO BE A CHRISTIAN or A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST???

1. ACKNOWLEDGE: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). “God be merciful to me a sinner” (Luke 18:13).
You must acknowledge that you are a sinner and that you therefore need Jesus in your life.

2. REPENT: “Unless you repent you will all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3), “Repent therefore and be converted that your sins may be blotted out” (Acts 3:19)
Repenting means: to change your mind; a sincere turning away, in heart, mind and action;
Therefore God wants you to repent of sinful values and of sinful living. God wants you to decide to
follow Him and to make Jesus the Lord of your life.

3. CONFESSION: “If we confess our sins. He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9)
God is a forgiving God. God will forgive any sin that you have done because Jesus died for ALL your sins and to set you free from the bondage of all types of sin in your life.

4. BELIEVE: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
You must believe that ONLY Jesus can save you and restore your relationship with God. You must believe that Jesus is the ONLY way by which you can have everlasting life and escape from eternal separation from God. You must believe that Jesus died on the cross for you and resurrected from the grave.
“He came to His own, and His own did not receive him, But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name” (John 1:11-12)
By faith, You must receive Jesus as Your Lord & Savior and therefore; you become a child of God; you become born again; you become a Christian; you restore your broken relationship with God.

 

Why not make your eternal decision NOW?

We become born again Christians by GRACE through FAITH or TOTAL TRUST in Jesus Christ as our Lord & Savior (Galatians 3:26) & (Ephesians 2:8,9). Salvation is a FREE gift.

This prayer is only an EXPRESSION of your faith, belief & trust in Jesus.

“Lord Jesus, I thank You for Your love. I thank You that You died on the cross for me and resurrected so that I may have life through You.
I confess Lord that I have sinned against You and today I ask You to forgive me of all of my sins, past present and future.
I repent of all of my sins and I ask You to cleanse me Jesus.
Thank You for forgiving my sins.
From this moment, come into my life Lord Jesus & take full control of my life. I want to follow You Jesus and I want to follow Your ways. Save me and from today, make me the person You want me to be.
I receive You Lord Jesus right now by faith. I make You my Lord and Savior – Amen”

5 Things Atheists Can’t Prove

“Do you have proof for your claim?” – This is a popular question that most atheists love to ask a Christian believer. Atheists pride themselves in requiring proof for any Biblical view of life, creation and God. However, the interesting irony is that the atheist himself does not have any proof or evidence that disputes various Christian Biblical beliefs.

Does the atheist really lack faith – or does he actually exercise faith?
Atheism is a human opinion – but even opinions can be wrong.
Atheism is a “lack of belief” – but lacking belief in something does not prove that the thing you lack belief in does not exist.
Atheism, just like Christianity requires faith – because faith requires that you believe in things that you cannot always see nor prove.
Christians do not dispute that faith is an important component of Christianity – but the problem is atheists cannot admit their self-deception that atheism itself is a faith or belief system.

In fact, it would be true to say that it takes a great deal of FAITH to become an atheist than it does to believe in God. Atheism itself requires the suspension of reason & human logic so that the atheist can believe in things that he has neither observed, tested nor proved.

So the atheist needs to be asked this important question: “Do YOU have proof for your claim?”

Below are a few of the things that atheists cannot prove and may help reveal that atheism itself does not pride itself in scientific evidence or proof but that atheism is simply an ANTI-GOD FAITH / BELIEF SYSTEM.

 

5 THINGS ATHEISTS CAN’T PROVE

 

  1. Atheists Cannot Prove That There Is No God

Can the atheist honestly prove that God does not exist? Has he been to every planet in the solar system? Has he been to all the ends of the earth? Has he visited every star in the universe? Has he seen and experienced anything beyond the natural realm? Does he know everything about every subject known to man? Atheists CANNOT prove that God does not exist.
To claim that there is no God is not only arrogant – but it is foolish. Psalm 14:1 says “The fool says in his heart ‘There is no God’…”
Yes of course, the atheist might retort and say: “Can you prove that unicorns or the spaghetti monster don’t exist” or “The burden of proof is on the believer”.
Atheists consist of less than 4% of the population of people who believe in the existence of a supernatural deity.
Therefore the burden of proof is not on the majority but it is on the minority. The burden is on the 4% to prove that every other population that believes in the existence of God or the supernatural are “uneducated” as some atheists claim.
Christians do not preach that unicorns, or Spiderman, or that the spaghetti monster created the universe.
Christians speak and preach about the existence of God, a supernatural Being who created the universe. Christians preach that the natural was made by the Supernatural and that the EVIDENCE or PROOF of God is seen in the creation itself and that no human being is “without excuse” for not believing in God.
Romans 1:20 says For since the creation of the world His (God’s) invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse

 

  1. Atheists Cannot Prove That Non-Life Can Create Life

The atheist prides himself in science. Science indeed is a good instrument for understanding the method in which God’s creation functions and Christians have no problem with science.
However, neither science nor atheists can prove that NOTHING can create SOMETHING. Atheists pride themselves in requiring proof or evidence yet there is no scientific observable & testable evidence that non-life can create life.
Many atheists are inclined to believe in abiogenesis which is the theory that living organisms can arise spontaneously from inanimate matter. However, there is no scientific observable proof that abiogenesis is possible. All forms of abiogenesis are neither supportable is there proof or evidence. Yet the atheist currently BELIEVES this theory – a clear indication that it takes FAITH to be an atheist or evolutionist.
If non-life could create life, then this process would not only be historical, but it would be observable in the present time. It could be tested in the labs. To this day we ought to be observing new planets creating themselves out of nothing or new living creatures on the earth creating themselves out of nothing.
Atheists therefore CANNOT prove the origins of life came from non-life.
However the Bible tells us clearly how life originated and from whom life originated.
Genesis 1:1 says “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”.
God is the source of ALL life whether seen or unseen. Without God there would be no life. Only a Being more intelligent than creation itself could have created an organized system such as seen in the universe.

 

  1. Atheists Cannot Prove That Evolution Is Occurring In The Present, That It Occurred in The Past & That It Will Occur In The Future

The truth is this: Evolution is NOT happening now. Yet the atheist would have us falsely believe that evolution happened; evolution is happening and that evolution will happen.
Remember that the atheist prides himself in requiring proof or evidence for various claims. Yet hypocritically, the atheist has no proof that evolution is happening now in the present.
If evolution were a real and observable process then there would be MANY transitional animals, plants or forms that we could observe. We would for example be able to observe an animal that is half-fish and half-bird or an animal that is half-baboon and half-human. I can bet you that such examples sound ludicrous even to the average atheist – and if it does sound ludicrous – it’s because evolution itself is false and ludicrous.
Atheists and evolutionists have concluded that they have “evidence” of one kind of animal transitioning into another kind of animal yet they have no observable proof or evidence of such claims. Therefore the atheist CANNOT prove that evolution happened or is happening.
Instead what we can truly see and truly authenticate and observe is what God did in Genesis 1.
God made distinct kinds or categories of plants and animals with many varieties in each kind or category.
In Genesis 1:11-25 God made plants, trees, animals, fish and every living creature according to their kinds and God saw that it was good.
For example cats are a kind or category. Yet under the kind / category of cats we have a variety of cats, for example lions, tigers, cougars, cheetahs, domestic cats etc

Genesis 1:11,12NKJVThen God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:24-25NKJVThen God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

 

  1. Atheists Cannot Prove What Will Happen When We Die

Are we just simply flesh and that’s it? Besides having a body, do we not also have a soul and a spirit? When our body dies, what happens to our spirit – where does our spirit go?
So the question is this: Is there life after death? The Christians says “Yes” but the atheist says “No”.
Atheists have NO scientific proof / evidence AGAINST the belief that man has a soul or spirit.
To deny the existence of a soul or spirit would be like a man thinks that a computer can function without software.
However, remember that the atheist prides himself in having scientific proof and evidence.
Atheists have no scientific evidence or proof that we will become nothing or seize to entirely exist when we die. Indeed their naturalistic view is that our bodies will simply decay or that the moment we are dead then that is the end.
The Christian believes by faith that he/she has eternal life through Christ and that he/she will be with Christ after physically death. Therefore Christians do not deny their faith.
However, the atheist denies that he has FAITH in the things that he CANNOT prove.
1 John 5:12-13NKJVHe who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. 13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.

 

  1. Atheists Cannot Prove That They Know About All Things Spiritual

The atheist may dismiss the Christian & Biblical perception of God and life by labelling Christian views as being a “fallacy”, “strawman”, “uneducated” and the like. However, the atheist CANNOT prove that he is omniscient and that he knows everything in relation to both natural and supernatural matters.
Science itself is the study of the natural – NOT the supernatural.
By only focusing on studying the creation it would be irrational to presume that the creation does not have a Maker. For example, if a person were to only focus on studying the hardware & software of a computer it would be foolish to conclude that the computer existed without an intelligent inventor.
Yet the atheist has come to the irrational conclusion that all visible things that he sees and studies through the lens of science just simply managed to coherently and systematically exist and function without the hand of an Intelligent Designer.
It takes FAITH to come to such an irrational conclusion. Yet the irony is that the atheist prides himself in living according to “reason”, “proof” and “evidence” whilst having NO evidence of his own conclusions.
Hebrews 11:3 says “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible”.
The Bible clearly tells us that the natural things we see were made by the unseen / supernatural / spiritual.
Furthermore Romans 1:20 says “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse”.

The irony however is that the atheist uses faith and NOT the scientific evidence he prides himself in order to argue against the existence of God and all things spiritual.
Many atheists will claim that they used to go to church and that they were “former Christians”. However, no genuine Christian would ever conclude that God does not exist. Therefore the question is: were such “former Christians” actually genuine Christians in the first place? (To understand what a Biblical Christian is as defined by scriptures read What Is A Christian?)

 

 

BELIEVE IN GOD

If as an atheist you are doubting evolution and atheism, it’s important to know that God DOES exist and God does NOT reject anybody who comes to Him.

An atheist can learn about God and discover the wonderful plan that God has for his/her life by converting to Christianity. It’s through the Christian faith that we learn about the grace and mercy of God and the love that He has towards us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ for our sins. Jesus paid for our sins (John 3:16).

The gift of eternal life and the opportunity to have a relationship with God is open to whosoever will be believe.
