Which Comes First?

All but one religion of the world tells us that if we are good enough, God will accept us.
The Gospel (good news) of Jesus points out that because God accepts us, we want to do good.

The same is true for repentance:
Anyone who has genuinely repented before God of h/her sins has been forgiven.
Anyone who has been forgiven has genuinely repented or h/her sins.


  1. All religions have something in common: you need to believe in REAL magic first! Don't forget that!

  2. Hugo, I find it interesting that if I were to tell you that a frog instantly turned into a prince, you would call that magic or a fairy tale. But if I tell you that something crawled out of the ooze and became a frog and after millions of years became a man, you'd call that science.

    A miracle isn't magic. And Christianity isn't a religion. It is a relationship with a real, living person.
