I know what I believe and why because I have studied and I can come to no other conclusion than the Truth that Christianity is the only coherent worldview with corresponding truth that defines origin-meaning-morality-destiny and directly answers with logical consistency, empirical adequacy, experiential relevance. There is ONE God and ONE Mediator for sin, Jesus Christ (1 Timothy 2:5).
During my initial read and subsequent in-depth study of the Holy Scriptures, I came to the irrefutable conclusion that Jesus Christ is God who died for me so that I could live and find righteousness (a right standing) with God the Father by grace through faith in what Jesus did for me at the Crucifixion…it is the sinless, spotless, blood of Jesus Christ shed at Golgotha-Jerusalem that paid my sin-debt (2 Corinthians 5:21) and having trusted in Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection as payment for my sin, I have been forgiven of all sin, past-present-future, and I have received the imputation of Jesus’ perfection over my life; therefore, God the Father has adjudicated me “not guilty” as I am now His child through the rebirth (John 3:16; John 3:1-21)…most importantly, with the rebirth by faith in Messiah as Lord, I have received the indwelling Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:13) who is my closest Friend and it is the Holy Spirit that provides me with wisdom, discernment, faith, understanding, strength, knowledge, to not only live the Christian life through the process of sanctification but the Holy Spirit is my Seal and my Guarantor of relationship with God the Father, forever (1 John 2:27; John 16:13).
No one, nothing, can snatch me away from my relationship with Jesus Christ and God the Father…I am secure forever in “I AM” (Exodus 3:14). I have an eternal understanding of origin and why…this is a most precious gift of assurance-peace-contentment granted by the Holy Spirit for having believed and trusted in Jesus as Lord. There is nothing greater to be obtained in this life constrained by Time; in fact, the entire focus/purpose for our life in Time is to prepare for Eternity; therefore, without Jesus Christ as your Lord, you will live and die in futility and meaninglessness (Matthew 16:26)!!!
