To Become A Real Christian   >>

“IF YOU CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH THE LORD JESUS AND BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD HAS RAISED HIM [JESUS] FROM THE DEAD, YOU WILL BE SAVED. FOR WITH THE HEART ONE BELIEVES…AND WITH THE MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE UNTO SALVATION.” (Romans 10:9, 10)

As I have often said, the best verse in the entire Bible is:

“FOR WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD [JESUS] SHALL BE SAVED”! (Romans 10:13)

There are many religions in the world — all seeking to find the true and living God. How my heart breaks as I see multitudes worldwide bowing down to all kinds of images, hoping to touch “their god.”

I shall never forget watching in India as seekers bowed down to a large, black ball. It looked like a regular bowling ball, but to many it was their god and they prayed to it and worshipped it as God! Others were crawling on hands and knees, weeping and praying to reach or appease their “god.” In India alone there are over four million gods which people bow down to and worship.

In other parts of the world it is more of an ideology, similar to Christianity, but lacking in the essence of Christ’s death and glorious resurrection to make one’s salvation complete.

Ah, dear partner, if only I could take every soul on earth and with my two hands holding their face to me, I could explain the true way of salvation! Many would accept since so many have been given a pitiful distorted version, if any at all, of what it means to be a REAL CHRISTIAN!

Since multitudes of people from other religious faiths are now contacting us asking the key questions of what it means to be a real Christian, let me in the next few moments tell you what the BIBLE says about true faith in Jesus.

Please set aside everything that man has told you about Jesus and Christianity. Let us look at what Jesus said for Himself!

First of all, He said —

“DO TO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD LIKE THEM TO DO TO YOU”! (Luke 6:30 NLT)

Next, He taught —

“LOVE YOUR ENEMIES…AND PRAY FOR THOSE WHO DESPITEFULLY (BADLY) USE YOU.” (Matt. 5:44 KJV)

This is the tough one —

“WHEN SOMEONE SLAPS YOUR RIGHT CHEEK, TURN AND LET THAT PERSON SLAP YOUR OTHER CHEEK.” (Matt. 5:39 CEV)

In Russia, I shocked them by presenting Jesus as partly Communist! Certainly not their atheistic form, for Jesus is Himself God, just as the Father is God. But He taught us to give of what we have to those in need. For example —

“IF YOU HAVE TWO COATS, GIVE ONE TO SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T HAVE ANY.” (Luke 3:11 CEV)

Jesus loved you and me so much that He died on a cruel cross, taking the punishment you and I deserved for our sins. I could go on and on with the many other amazing teachings of this God/Man, but as God would have it, our love gift this month is simply all of the words Jesus spoke as recorded in the Holy Bible.

Ah, dear friend, Christianity is not a bunch of “DO THIS” and “DON’T DO THAT”! Legalists have, through the ages, twisted and turned the truth of the Gospel into political fancy to meet their specific needs and desires. READ FOR YOURSELF WHAT JESUS SAID, then if you are tired of all the old “do this, but don’t do that” religion, simply accept Jesus as your own Lord and Savior with a simple prayer:

“Lord Jesus, I believe you are the true Son of God. I believe you were miraculously conceived by the Holy Spirit. That you were born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, then died on the Cross taking my punishment upon your own precious body. Please come into my heart. I want to be your child and live for you with the help of your Holy Spirit. Amen.”

Read your Bible every day and if you have none, ask and we will send you one. We will even try to get you one in your own native language.

Please write or email me if you prayed that prayer. I want to pray for you and send you this monthly newsletter.

To my supporting partners, I say “THANK YOU” for making it possible to send a letter like this to over one million homes, but even more for keeping this great VOICE called TBN, ON THE AIR to most of the world — over 16 thousand stations and cable affiliates, plus only God knows how many little dishes are springing up around the world!

Glory be to God — together we are doing what Jesus asked us to do:

“GO YE INTO ALL THE WORLD, AND PREACH THE GOSPEL TO EVERY CREATURE.” (Mark 16:15)

Will you help Jan and me do it and keep going? I know you will!



Last year Paul, Jan and Paul Jr. met
with Jian Jianyang, China's Vice Minister of Religious
Affairs. TBN currently reaches parts
of China-please continue to pray for
satellite "landing rights" to
reach the entire nation.
