To live with God, you must actually repent of your sins

I saw a post on social media the other day that deeply disturbed me.

It said something like "Jesus forgives and saves everyone."

It is astonishing to me that anyone who proclaims to believe in Jesus would believe this statement, which is completely opposite to everything he taught.

John the Apostle, perhaps the person in the Bible who knew him best, said:

5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. (1 John 1)

If you believe in Jesus, you will act, think, and desire as he did and does. If you do not act, think, and desire as he did and does, you do not believe in him.

If and only if you become the person he teaches you to be, he will save you…

What reason do you have to believe that your church leaders have unique authority claims? Do you have a reason to believe that whatever they can do in church, you can't do at home?To pay tithing? Are you saying you can't find poor people to donate to directly?To be taught? Ah ha. Taught what?
