I believe that I, along with the rest of the world, am a sinner worthy of eternal death. Along with that I believe that God sent His only son down to Earth to be beaten and crucified so He could save us from the wages of sin, to further His names glory. Believing thing, however, is not easy. There is a lot of of spiritual warfare and persecution involved. A lot of people hate God and hate his followers. The bible, though, says to endure this pain with God, joyfully. I have lost many ‘friends’ and have been persecuted by family members for my beliefs, but I dont mind. The Lord is my strength and my shield and I find my joy in HIm. These are my beliefs, and I would die tonight for them.
