There is a way out

In a BDN Nov. 3 letter, Duane Hanselman wrote: “I can’t help but wonder why a loving God would condemn two-thirds of the world’s population to such a fate simply because they weren’t born into Christianity.”

It seems Mr. Hanselman does not understand that one is not “born” into Christianity, as one is born in the U.S.A. and is an American. If one fully believes as a Christian that a “loving God” would not condemn people then this is not the God or Jehovah of the Bible.

John 3:16-18 states that those who possess Christ as Lord and Savior are not condemned. Those who have not accepted the free gift of salvation from God, through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross, are condemned already.

How does one become a Biblical Christian? The Bible tells us that infant baptism will not save us, or church membership or being born into a Christian home.

The Bible states that we are all sinners. We must realize this, repent of our sins to God, ask forgiveness, and receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. That is Bible and Biblical Christianity.
