|Question / Issue|
|At Calvary, is it true that you do not believe that the Pope is (was) a Christian and that Catholics are not Christians?|
|Answer / Solution|
|We believe that being the Pope, Catholic or any denomination, for that matter, isn't what saves us.
The following is what the Bible teaches on becoming a Christian.
THE GOOD NEWS OF GOD'S WORD
God loves you so much and He created you to know Him personally and experience His love.
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life." John 3:16
However, we do not enjoy God's love and His plan for our lives because we have chosen to disobey Him and go our own willful way. The result is that we are separated from God.
"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
But God sent His Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for our sins. Because Jesus never sinned, He is the only one who could take the punishment for our sins.
The Bible says…
"…God is on one side and all the people on the other side, Christ Jesus, Himself man, is between them to bring them Together…" 1 Timothy 2:5
"For Christ also has suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust that He might bring us to God…" 1 Peter 3:18a
"Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures." 1Corinthians 15:3
"But God demonstrates His own love for us in this; While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
"The Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world." 1 John 4:14
If you believe that Jesus died for you, tell Him that you are sorry for your sins and accept Jesus Christ as your Savior.
"But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name." John 1:12
God has forgiven all your sins and now you can know God personally and experience His love.
Jesus will save you, but you must come to Him on His terms:
1. ADMIT that you have sinned.
2. TURN away from your sin to Jesus.
3. BELIEVE that Jesus died for your sins and rose from the dead.
4. ACCEPT Jesus Christ as your personal Savior.
Accept Him by calling upon His Name. The Bible says, "Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
Call on the Name of the Lord by praying this simple prayer:
