"Are You Really Sure Of Your Eternal Salvation?"
Welcome to studying the Bible on the internet. You are to be commended for your interest in studying Godís word, the Bible. This course pertains to a very important subject concerning our Eternal Salvation. What subject could be more important? It is my hope that the scripture references pointed out in this study will be of benefit to your faith in your striving to go to Heaven. In this course I have tried to point to only what the Bible says, and not to what I think. We must speak where the Bible speaks and be silent where the Bible is silent. We must do things in Bible ways and call things by Bible names. Anything that is less than, more than, or different from what the Bible says is false doctrine. False doctrine will cause one to lose his soul in eternity.
There is so much confusion in the world pertaining to religious beliefs which can be traced to the ignorance of God's word. There are more than 600 different denominational churches all with different doctrines, beliefs, and teachings. Confronted by so many different conflicting doctrines of religion, people are so confused, they donít know what to believe. Any person who is interested in his soulís salvation can not afford to follow any of the many false doctrines that are being taught, but will have a genuine interest to know the truth which is found only in the Bible. Our Lord Jesus Christ, who is our Saviour, has already made provision for the forgiveness of our sins by His suffering and death on the cross. On Judgment Day we will not have to be lost in the eternal punishment of torment along with Satan, the Devil. In order to be saved we must obey the gospel. But what is the gospel? What must we do in order to be saved? In this study we will find out what the Bible says we must do so we can inherit Godís gift of eternal life in Heaven.
Unless otherwise noted all scripture quotations are from the New King James Version of the Bible, Copyright © 1992 by Thomas Nelson Inc. All scripture references are in red. We need to open our minds and hearts to the scriptures. In this course I have tried to point you to what God has said in His word, the Bible. As you read the scripture references, think seriously of what God is actually saying to you. I have bolded certain words and phrases for emphasis.
I have tried not to be offensive, but I also do not want to be "wishy-washy" about what God has said and to "sugar coat" it. Please do not take anything in the wrong way, because I mean no harm. I deeply care. As God's word says in 1 Peter 3:15 "But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear". This I have tried to do, because our eternal salvation is a very serious matter.
This course "Are You Really Sure Of Your Eternal Salvation" is divided into twenty-five (25) lessons. After each lesson you are asked to answer several interactive multiple choice and true-false questions concerning what you have just studied. The correct answer is found in the scripture reference that is listed with the questions. Click on the answer of your choice and a dialog box will appear telling you if your answer is correct or wrong and why. It is my hope and prayer that this course will help you in some way to go to Heaven. If you have any questions or comments please E-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org . I deeply care.
