Thought I’d start a thread about Jesus! I’ve know him since I was 12. Made my faith my own when I went away to UCSB. I’m 57 now. I’m so thankful that life isn’t about me and my glory. My goal is to glorify him and enjoy him forever. What has been your experience with him?

Serious question: And how does one obtain salvation?

Only through God's Grace which is a free gift. Nothing we can do will earn God's favor. Everybody is in the same boat!
What has been your experience with Jesus Sean?

My point in asking the question was to hopefully open the dialogue that doctrine and dogma divide us, often in immeasurable ways, but also via sects. The body is not to be divided...and if we focus on what is required for salvation alone, then the differences in interpretation and doctrinal differences ultimately do not matter.

The thing that truly matters for salvation is belief in Yeshua/Jesus as the Son of God (YHWH), that he died as the perfect atonement sacrifice for our sin; provided we turn from that sin and try (yet we will all fail) to follow his example.

That’s it! Faith in Jesus alone. Confess to Him your sin, believe in Him, and then profess your belief to others. That is all there is to a complete change of direction in your purpose in life! He’s the only answer to peace!

My great grandmother spoke to Jesus all the time, especially after my great grandfather died and she lived alone. There was so much comfort for her in this relationship.
