Why all the effort?

Reading the Bible is easy. Living according to the Bible by applying the teachings of Jesus to our lives consistently is challenging. Effort is required.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life.

James 1:22 Put that message into practice, and do not merely listen to it – deceiving yourselves.

Luke 6:46 Why do you call me ‘Master! Master!’ and yet fail to do what I tell you?

Luke 9:23 And to all present he said, “If any one wishes to walk in my steps, they must renounce self, and take up their cross daily, and follow me.

Matthew 16:24-26 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone wishes to walk in my steps, they must renounce self, and take up their cross, and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, and whoever, for my sake, loses his life will find it. What good will it do a person to gain the whole world, if he forfeits his life? Or what will a person give that is of equal value with his life?

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is just and may be trusted to forgive our sins and cleanse us from all wrongdoing.

Luke 14:27 Whoever does not carry their own cross, and walk in my steps, can be no disciple of mine.

Similar to merchants using the temple for monetary gain in the book of Matthew, those whom withhold free use of the word of God under copyright restrictions to protect publishing profits will answer for it one day.

Matthew 21:12-13 Jesus went into the Temple Courts, and drove out all those who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers, and the seats of the pigeon-dealers, 13 and said to them: "Scripture says 'My house will be called a house of prayer'; but you are making it 'a den of robbers.'"

How do I know the OEB translation is accurate and unbiased? Read more...

OpenEnglishBible.org "Although all translators have opinions on the truth and meaning of the ancient documents which form the Bible, the intent of this revision of the TCNT is not to push any particular theological line but to provide a freely usable translation of an Alexandrian texttype based critical text in modern English. The GitHub account for the OEB contains the original text of the Twentieth Century New Testament in USFM, (which can be checked against the the pdf of the published edition on Archive.org); it also contains a list of all of the changes made to that text. As can be seen from the article on the making of the TCNT mentioned above, the TCNT itself was the product of a wide range of translators of differing backgrounds and was not itself intended to push a particular theological point of view. Fundamentally the OEB is not an exercise in translation so much as editing. All changes are made transparently, and we endeavour to ensure that no new wording is added that is not attested to in at least one modern, scholarly, mainstream translation."

What is the Sinner's Prayer for Salvation?

The sinners prayer is a common Christian term for a prayer that is said when someone wants to repent of their sin, ask God for forgiveness, and verbally state their belief in the life, death, and saving resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"For, if with your lips you acknowledge the truth of the message that JESUS IS LORD, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with their hearts people believe and so attain to righteousness, while with their lips they make their Profession of faith and so find salvation." Romans 10:9-10

Christ's death on the cross paid in full the debt of our sin. Action must be taken to take hold of the gift.

Dear God, I know that I am a sinner and there is nothing that I can do to save myself. I confess my complete helplessness to forgive my own sin or to work my way to heaven through any good works. At this moment I trust Christ alone and receive by faith all Grace purchased by Jesus as the One who bore my sin when He died on the cross. I believe that He did all that will ever be necessary for me to stand in your holy presence. I thank you that Christ was raised from the dead as a guarantee of my own resurrection. As best as I can, I now transfer my trust to Him and by my faith take hold of His grace and love for me. I am grateful that He has promised to receive me despite my many sins and failures. Thank you for your word that will guide me as to how I should live my remaining days. Please grant me the wisdom to discern correctly and motivation to grow my faith, obedience, understanding, appreciation, and love for you. Thank you for your Grace and mercy that I do not deserve. Thank you that my salvation is not based on my level of performance in my short life but in my receiving what your victory on the cross did pay for. Thank you that I can receive by my faith alone, your glorious gift of salvation. Thank you for hearing this prayer and for saving me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
