Converting to Christian
HOW DO YOU BECOME A CHRISTIAN
ARE YOU A CHRISTIAN? EXAMINE YOUR SELF
This page will take you through it.
This page does not teach a doctrine, but it explains the doctrine of Christ,
relating to becoming a Christian
I am not a Protestant, I am not a Catholic, I am not an Orthodox: so I have first READ, and now I Understand.
The Bible is not a book that can only be understood by so-called ‘Elected’ persons.
Just read the first book and see that you too, can understand it.
The New Testament is more or less 269 pages thick, depending on the translation – but all editions are identical.
Mark 1:15 (Jesus) And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
So, according to Jesus:
If you are just curious, you can be saved;
If you are a believer, but not yet a Christian, you can be saved;
If you believe that you are a Christian but are not, you can be saved.
I note that those who believe they are Christians, as well as those who play Christian like nothing less than to be confronted with the truth of the gospel where it concerns their misperception or their deceit. But a few do listen, and to those can be saved. I do not come with lukewarm cotton gloves to cuddle you in false compassion but with the bold truth of what a Christian is and how one becomes a Christian. For this is the compassion I must demonstrate to you, so that you may understand the Gospel.
Why would I tell you a fairy tale to make you a lukewarm deluded Believer?
I am not a minister of a church chasing your money; neither an evangelist who invites you to fund my foundation or buy my book. I am working for my money and I teach the Gospel free of charge. And therefore I have no reason to tell you a fairy tale, in order to please you and make you feel at home in a house that shall be demolished by the wrath of God, who tells us that every one that is lukewarm shall be demolished by his wrath. Who tells us that every one that is lukewarm shall be spewed out and shall not see the kingdom of heaven but shall burn ever-lasting in everlasting fire.
It is an undisputed fact, and by far not a secret, that many people live in the illusion that they’re baptized Christians,
though they are not; for either they were taken to the baptism as children, or at the time of their baptism they did not realize the meaning of the ritual. They did not realize that they had to repent; feel real regret for their past transgressions, before they could actually ‘be baptized’. So, in fact, they are not baptized and can still really repent, spend time in prayer and then baptize properly, unable to fornicate again or willingly sin again. Christ says: Many are called but few are chosen:
The actual definition of ‘Christian’: one who follows Christ; that is to say the doctrine and the commandments.
Baptising is believing that he is the son of God and believing that all which he taught us is the truth, and the way to a better life on earth and everlasting life in heaven, after our resurrection as Christians.
If you do not believe but one part of the Gospel of Christ ( that which Christ taught ) you are not a Christian. But note, if you rightfully do not agree with one of the writers, such as Paul when he writes that woman should not teach, then that’s fine, as the quote is clearly his own and not inspired by the Holy Ghost (though Christ told them they shall speak what he inspires them to).
As they explain the Gospel to the reader, the Apostles allow their own opinion to enter, and that was not without sexism those days. Paul here contradicts what he said about woman, confirming that the quote was not inspired, for he now contradicts it. But Christ never taught sexism. And you will notice that when you do not agree with an apostolic quote, you either did not understand it or it is clearly the writer’s own opinion.
Paul once does explain, prior to an explanation, saying: this is from me, distinguishing the explanation as not inspired by Christ but from his own mind. Also, the speakers are always introduced in the Gospel, so you know who is speaking:
Paul: GALLATIANS 3: 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
If your baptism is successful, then you are reborn of incorruptible seed. This means that you cannot sin again.
PE1 1: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.
Baptism is a ritual whereby your body is submerged into any kind of water: the sea, a river, lake or loch, then pulled back up, out of the water, so that your sins are forgiven and you are Born Again.
Having confirmed that you know what you are doing and are truly ready for what you are about to do, the Baptist says: I baptize you in the name of Jesus Christ. Do not let them baptize you in the name of the father, the son and the holy ghost, for Jesus said: in the name of Jesus Christ. For people who were baptised in the father and the son and the holy ghost, I believe/hope, there may be a Godly pardon, but that is only a hope, and likely a ‘vain hope’: so I would just baptise again, properly and then see what happens spiritually.
After your baptism, you do not fornicated again or, willingly, with premeditated intention breach any commandment of Christ again. You now follow Christ seriously, for through the baptism you have made a covenant with God and you are now Holy: there is no other way to become Christian and Holy in the eyes of God but through Baptism.
JOH 3: 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
LUK 18: 19 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, God.
So we know what is acceptable to God. Good people on earth are acceptable to each other, but not to God – save they be born again through baptism. And born again, you are now steadfast, charitable, kind, loving, detesting all that’s evil and having a great love for all that is good.
Fornicators shall not inherit the kingdom of Christ: meaning they shall not enter heaven.
Colossians 6: 9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind
Deliberately/willingly sinning after your baptism is not forgivable (would you believe this to be possible). You face the second death, would you consciously sin again.
Pseudo-Christianity already existed in Paul’s days. And because of the false teachings of the church that would become the Catholic church, Paul was forced to make the following quote:
Hebrews 10: 26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
Hebrews 10: 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
The above mentioned confirms what God has told us through Jesus. He will spew you out if you are lukewarm
Only accidental sins (acts committed without premeditation) are forgivable if you truly feel repentance after the offence. Jesus himself has given you a prayer to pray would this occur, but then you must also forgive those who transgress against you. How David prayed when he sinned. But in David’s days, salvation through baptism was not available, and so he did receive forgiveness.
You are a Believer in repentance if you:
have read the gospel (the new testament of the bible), understood it, are experiencing repentance because of your past sins, and are now preparing your self for the baptism, conscious of what you are preparing to do. You have decided to shed your sins (understanding what sin is from the Gospel) and have decided to embrace the teachings of Christ (this being the essence of REPENTANCE).
Once baptized, there is no 2nd chance to re-baptize, else we would not need the baptism, would we?
Were this possible, no deliberate sins are tolerated by God. So, you may ‘miss the mark’ (accidentally sin) but not willingly sin, like commit fornication.
You are a believer if you:
believe that Christ is the son of God and that the whole Gospel is the truth, but do not follow him
You are a Christian if you:
have repented of your sins and have decided to embrace the teachings of Christ (this being the essence of REPENTANCE) have been baptized by another, not necessarily by another baptized Christian, because who knows who baptises you? It’s your sincere repentance and your decision to baptise that makes you ‘receive the baptism’, and not the person of the baptiser.
You are not a Christian if you:
– live a life of fornication and/or adultery,
– believe that being a Christian is going to church,
– believe that that Christ existed and what he taught to be the truth but do not follow him,
– are not following Christ as explained above, believing the whole Gospel as true,
– do not believe that Jesus was the son of God,
– believe that you can fornicate and willingly commit sins after your baptism and just pray for forgiveness,
– believe that being baptized involuntarily, without to repent first and willingly baptize is the baptism of Christ,
– believe that Christianity (the following of Christ) is gradable into devout and not devout, while you also are not devout,
– do not believe that lukewarm persons are unacceptable to God,
You are not baptized if you:
– involuntarily were taken to the baptism
– did not first repent before you baptised
– were not fully aware of what you were doing, due to a lack of understanding about the matter
In any of the above events, you can baptize properly by taking the necessary steps described on this page.
For the Lord has led you this way, so that you may become one of his ‘true servants’.
If you consider becoming a Christian or your you’d like to find out about the faith, you should first read the book of Matthew – the first book of the Gospel. This is logic, for asking questions on boards or going to churches, quickly has you wrapped into manly doctrines and fables, while you endeavour to find out about God and Christ. You are not aiming to become a lukewarm deluded pseudo-Christian, but a true servant of Christ worthy of the title ‘Christian’. Whatever ministers preach, must be confirmed in the Gospel of Christ: The New Testament.
DISCOVER THE CHRISTIANITY OF JESUS CHRIST
1) Read the book of Matthew; while you read, write down any questions you may have for the Christians (the church). Christ will guide you and give you understanding if you are called. You best wait until you have read the whole book before you ask questions. This will help you to recognize how you understand the questions your self by the time you reach the end of the book: really try this, if you can. It will also help you notice any contradictors and lukewarm people with doctrines of men.
2) When you feel you believe or just feel something in your heart, pray to God, in the name of Jesus Christ. Christ says “None comes to the father but by me! Therefore Christians pray for everything in his name.
3) Read the entire Gospel, all the book to the end of the revelation. Then decide if you feel the calling to be a Christian; for if you do, you very likely are chosen. For you fully understood what you were undertaking, starting with the study of Christ through personal reading. You may feel repentance now and may start to sense Christ; he may spiritually speak to you.
4) Take your time and contemplate carefully about your journey. God will read your hart and he knows if you are serious about your next move. By this time he already spoke to you in one way or another or he soon will. If not yet, you will now or soon feel a fading of your worldly desires, and an urge to be charitable and good, if it was not present at first.
You will now have to plan your baptism. When? After baptism, you can no longer consciously sin: for now, you are of incorruptible seed.
And this God, to whom you are contemplating to surrender, will listen to your prayer for a partner. Pray for a partner and the right one shall come. Christ says: pray always. And he says that everything which we that turn to him ask and believe we receive, we shall receive. I must here note that true Christians only ever feel the need to ask that which is good in God’s eyes; that which they need: not riches and vanity. If you ever had an urge to be rich and worldly for your own pleasure, that feeling should now have perished.
MAT 18: 19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
MAT 21: 22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
All fornication you now commit is just added to the fornications you already have committed through the years, so don’t worry. Just sleep with your partner, even see several partners if you are not attached, for you are preparing for the baptism, and all your past sins still cleave unto your body until you be baptised into the holy church of Christ. Then all sins are washed away, and you are Holy.
READ THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS AND NOT THOSE OF THE FRAUDULENT MINISTRIES
I, as well as millions of other unbelievers, true believers, and Christians, confess to you that nobody needs any minister to read and understand the Gospel for them. Ministers motivate you to read, understand, and then follow. If you do not understand something, just ask a few Christians. But you will understand 97% of all things without questions, and the remaining 3% you do not need to understand to be saved, for it would, no doubt, be some parable of Jesus which bears no such weight to your salvation.
You must read what Christ teaches, then the Apostles and Ministers that followed him, and you will notice that they just tell us what he taught them. If you do not understand something, ask a Christian, for the assembly of Christians constitutes the Church of Christ. Some of the lukewarm and even from the congregation of Satan, will refute this and start an argument to confuse you. But for them, the bible has warned you already. So, even of me beware. What I have told you here you must find in the bible, which you are going to read.
Note that, in all bibles, the Gospel is completely identical, save the grammar, which varies in structure from old to modern. Dismiss any protestant who tells you that the Catholic bibles is false, or vise-versa, for this, is a lie: the Catholic bible has eight more historic books than the protestant bible, and the historic books are just history – they can not save you. What God demands you do for a better life on earth and life everlasting in heaven is written in the New Testament: and these books are identical in both Catholic and Protestant editions.
There are many church marketers and deceitful evangelists, who are being paid by churches, and therefore work very hard to deceive us into their organisations, orders, and foundations.
Many use kind, congenial lines from the bible to deceive you that they are kindness, love and sympathy; and that Christ taught that, and that they, therefore, teach the same. They will also try to fool you to believe that all you need to do is a string of kind services to your neighbour to receive salvation.
Do not let any of these fool you. You are warned many times in the bible for them. You need to practice everything Christ teaches you in the Gospel. If you sincerely try and you sometimes fail, not deliberately, willingly, only then are you forgiven. Fornication does not happen accidentally, so no forgiveness.
HERE SOME BIBLICAL WARNINGS TO ALL PEOPLE COMING NEAR CHRISTIANITY
MAT 15: 8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.
MAT 15: 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
TI1 1: 4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
TI1 4: 7 But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.
TI2 4: 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
TIT 1: 14 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.
PE2 1: 16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
What happens to unbelievers: burn ever-lasting, tormented in everlasting fire.
