The Bible says:
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
2 Timothy 1:9
Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according
to our works,
but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in
before the world began,
But we are all like an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are
we all fade as a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us

Question: have you ever committed a
sin? Above - all have sinned
* Just one little
sin disqualifies a person from heaven
God is totally Holy,
Totally pure - Sin cannot come into his presence
Jesus is the only
person who has never committed one sin. Also, he was born without original
sin. He had to be born of a virgin, so that He would not inherit original
The sin of Adam and
Eve that was passed off to the human race.
-- Living Bible
Romans 5:12 When
Adam sinned, sin entered the entire human race. His sin spread death
throughout all the world, so everything began to grow old and die, for all
Original sin is
inherited by every person through Adam. We sin because were sinners.
God had to deal with
that root of sin. That's why Jesus said :
John 3:3 Jesus
answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man
be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Hebrews 9:22 And
almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding
of blood is no remission.
All the blood of the animals in the Old Testament was for the atonement of
covering for sins)
Christ Jesus poured out his blood for the remission
of our sins. (The putting away of our

2. I was Baptized
Water baptism is for believers only; those who hear
the gospel, believe, and turn to
their Savior. This is the pattern we see throughout the early church, as
seen in the
book of Acts. Water baptism is the outward symbolic act, of the
that has already taken place in the heart ( spirit ). It symbolizes the
death of the
old life and the birth of the new.
repent and be baptized.
if you believe with all you heart, you may.
Apostle Paul said
1:17-18 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel:
not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none
18. For the
preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us
which are saved it is the power of God.
Of the Gospel:
Romans 1:16 For I
am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto
salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the
17. For therein is
the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written,
The just shall live by faith.
There is no such
thing as Regeneration by water baptism.
Please read the
following: Acts 10:1-48
that while Peter was preaching about
Jesus they received the Holy Spirit, later they were baptized in water. (
Only born again Christians can receive the Holy Spirit ) they became
Christians before they were baptized in water. Water Baptism has nothing
to do with regeneration.
Peter shares the
experience with the Jewish Christians
Acts 11:14-17 Who
shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved.
15. And as I began
to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning.
16. Then remembered
I the word of the Lord, how that he said, John indeed baptized with water;
but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost.
17. Forasmuch then
as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord
Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God?

they choose wrong (sin) over whatís right; the original sin nature is
activated; at which point that young man or woman becomes a sinner in need

and most attend a church.
