Questions ...

I am not a Christian, but I have questions about...

God
Who is God?
To the Christians, God is....God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit - all present in one.
Christians who believe in this, call this the
Trinity.
The Trinity is the foundation of the Christian faith.
So basically, God the Father is God, Jesus the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God - all present in
one.

So do all religions believe in the same God?
Like I mentioned, to the Christians, the Only True God is God the Father, God the Son (Jesus), and
God the Holy Spirit - present in one. So, if one religion recognizes '
God the Father' as God and does
not recognize
'Jesus the Son' as God, then this becomes a totally different god. Or if one religion
believes in
'God the Father' as God, but does not recognize 'Jesus the Son' as God or the 'Holy Spirit'
as God, then this becomes another different god.
So to answer this question, All different religions do not believe in the same God. The one true God is
'God the Father', 'God the Son', and 'God the Holy Spirit' present in one - the Trinity.

Salvation:
What is salvation?
Salvation is a word that we Christians use to describe as ' being saved'.
Being saved from What? You may ask. Well, it means that your soul is being saved from spending
eternity in Hell.

Why do I need to get saved?
Unless you want to spend forever in Hell. Getting 'saved' is the only way to avoid going to Hell and
this is a choice that God gave us. Personally, I do not want any of my Family and Friends to spend
eternity in Hell.

So, do I need to get saved to get into Heaven?
Yes, getting saved is the only way to get into Heaven. It does not matter how good of a person you
are or how many times you have been to church, if you have are not saved, you will not enter into the
Gates of Heaven.

How do I get saved?
You get 'saved' by saying a simple prayer. However, this prayer must come from the heart and not
some prayer that you say
'just to get by' or a ' just in case'  or 'I'll wait till the last minute' prayer. This
prayer is to be said when you realize that you are a sinner and that you need to get saved.

1st: Admit that you are a sinner
2nd: Believe that Jesus(God the Son) is the only way to get into Heaven
3rd: Admit that Jesus is Lord

'Dear God,  I know that I am a sinner. Please forgive me for all of the sins that I did. And Jesus, I know
that you died on the cross for me and I believe that you are  the only way to Heaven. So Jesus, I
accept you as my Lord and Savior. Come into my heart and change my life. Amen.'

If you prayed this prayer and meant it, then you are now saved and welcome to the family of the one
true God.  Now find a God fearing, bible believing church.  So that you can grow and build a personal
relationship with God.

Church:
Do all churches believe in the same God?
No, because not all churches believe in the Trinity.
Some churches believe that Jesus was just a good teacher or just a prophet and not God and some
teach that the Holy Spirit is not God.
So, not all churches believe in the same God.

Which church should I go to?
Well, if you just accepted Christ or not sure where to go then I would suggest that you find a church
that believes in the Trinity. Normally, any Baptist, Assembly of God, Calvary Chapel, Nazarene,
Lutheran, Presbyterian, or most full Gospel churches are a good start.  
If you still are confused about it,  then go to a church that has a Cross displayed on or in front of the
church building. The
Cross is the main symbol that all Christians believe in. Basically, the Cross
stands for the death and resurrection of Jesus.

All Churches have hypocrites anyway, so why should I go?
Well, I will not deny that fact, but I will say this, people who say that they are Christians and who do not
act like it, they will have to answer to God when the time comes.
And understand this, they do not represent all Christians who do have a right relationship with God.
I guess what I am saying is this, not all Christians are hypocrites and this should not keep you from
going to church, but if you still think that all Christians are hypocrites, then I will say this.........
' then
you should fit right in '
....... so come and join us.

Why do all churches collect offering (money) and do I really have to give money?
Most, if not all, churches collect tithe and offering. This is collected to keep the church running. And
giving tithe to the Church, is really between the true Christian and God. So do not feel pressured  that
you have to give to the church, if you are not a Christian or just visiting a church.

I hear about The End of the World, what is that?
The End of the World is a phrase that people think of as 'destruction of all mankind' and most likely
related to the Battle of Armageddon.  
But to clear things up,  the 'End of the World' should be said as the 'End of Time'. Time is running out.
We believe that Jesus is coming for his people(true believers or Christians) soon. And when Jesus
calls his people into Heaven, that is when bad things will start to happen here on Earth: more large
Earthquakes and much more suffering.  Christians who believe this called this the 'Tribulation'.
Tribulation or the 'great suffering' that will last for 7 years. During this time, one world government  
will take place and the Antichrist will be in charge.
After 7 years are up, that is when Jesus comes back to Earth and destroys all those who are against
him. This will be called the Battle of Armageddon. There are a lot of details about this, but I will not try
expand on it because there are so much details.
