There is Hope in this Troubled World
What you need to know from the Bible, the written Word of God
You need to be saved
Romans 6:23a "For the wages (payment) of sin is death."
I John 1:8,10 "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him (God) a liar, and His Word is not in us."
Hebrews 9:27 "It is appointed unto men (mankind) once to die, but after this the judgement."
Revelation 20:14,15,10b "Death and Hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever (whoever) was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire. And shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever."
You cannot save yourself
Proverbs 14:12 "There is a way which seemeth (seems) right unto a man (person), but the end thereof are the ways of death."
Ephesians 2:8,9 "For by grace are ye (you) saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest (for fear that) any man should boast."
Grace - God's undeserved mercy and love for sinful man, revealed and made effective in Jesus Christ.
God has made a way for you to be saved
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He have His only begotten Son (Jesus Christ), that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life."
Acts 4:12 "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none (no) other name under Heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
Acts 13:38,39 "Be it known unto you therefore… that through this Man (Jesus Christ) is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins; and by Him all that believe are justified (pardoned and cleared from guilt) from all things."
I Peter 3:18 "Christ also hath (has) once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh (nailed to a cross), but quickened (made alive) by the Spirit."
