Judgment and Grace
TheJudgment.US -- Solid meat on a plain plate.
Jesus did not come to earth to condemn the world but to seek and save those who could not find their way.
We've all lost our way at some point and in some ways throughout our lives. It is popular today to assume that any direction we go from here is ok, as long as we are sincere and don't obviously hurt others.... But what if our culture is wrong about that? What if there is a God who set the stage and calls the shots?
Whether skeptical or ready and hungry for faith, here are 5 different online formats to answer your questions and maybe ask some questions you may not have thought of before:

╬ 5. The Short Story
Our selfishness and sins have broken our relationship with God. But amazingly, God came looking for us to make it right, to bring us back to Himself. True Christianity is all about how Jesus came to earth not just to teach about "peace on earth, goodwill toward men," but to literally bring peace, first between God and man, and then to supernaturally empower us to love each other!
It all starts with humility before God... John 16:8 "And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment"
Whether as a nation or as individuals, deep inside, most people know that one day we will all stand before the ultimate Judge. Our creator put that sense in us. It is part of our God created conscience.
Some people have seared that conscience and they can no longer feel right and wrong, others avoid the truth and put it off; like Governor Felix in Acts 24:25- "Now as he (the apostle Paul) reasoned about righteousness, self-control, and the judgment to come, Felix was afraid and answered, 'Go away for now; when I have a convenient time I will call for you.'" Most Americans have told God to go away, I'll call for you later. We all want God to change the world, unless it's our world He's trying to change.
Our "generic" faith in God's existence is not enough to erase the responsibility we owe for our own sins; nor is blind faith in a generic God sufficient to reveal the correct path we are to follow. James 2:19 says- "You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe--and tremble!" If you are tired of groping in the dark for the truth of God, there is a way you can know for sure. I know it seems too good to be true, but it's not. There are lots of evidences from multiple, solid sources to establish a simple clear picture that can transform a vague, generic feeling about God into a vibrant sure faith that pleases God.
The Good News
Please, hear me now, if you are NOT one of those people who mock or avoid the truth of God and if you are humble and honest enough to admit your sin and brokenness before God, then I have some VERY good news for you about the coming judgment against sin:
God instituted a plan that enables mankind to exercise freedom, yet preserves justice and allows mercy for the repentant. It is an excellent plan that only God could have devised.
But there is only one way for it to work... His way. He came to earth personally to show us that way. Jesus said "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." John 14:6
If you want to know this salvation that God has provided for us through Jesus Christ...
