Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

You Won't Find it.

"Tim said... By the way Ray, can you find me the verse that says you have to forsake your sins to be saved? Don't find a verse that says something that you interpret it to mean 'turn from sin’ find me a verse that literally says ‘turn from sin’ or ‘forsake sin.' You won't find it."

• "He that covers his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesses and forsakes them shall have mercy" (Proverbs 28:13, italics added).
• "Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon." (Isaiah 55:7, italics added).
• "They said, Turn you again now every one from his evil way, and from the evil of your doings, and dwell in the land that the LORD hath given unto you and to your fathers for ever and ever" (Jeremiah 25:5, italics added).
• "Say to them, As I live, says the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn you, turn you from your evil ways; for why will you die, O house of Israel?" (Ezekiel 33:11, italics added). See also Joel 2:12, 2 Chronicles 7:14, Ezekiel 18:21.
• "The Lord knows them that are his. And, let every one that names the name of Christ depart from iniquity" (2 Timothy 2:19, italics added).

No doubt Tim will ignore Scripture and hold on to the error that someone can be saved without biblical repentance. This common belief has not only filled the contemporary Church with false converts, but it has created multitudes of bitter "backsliders" (also false converts) many of whom are now bitter and angry professing atheists.
