Hebrews 9:28 “So Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and He will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for Him.”
The reader should not approach the quest to develop a relationship with God as though there is a buffet of ways to find the Divine and build such a relationship.
John 8:23-24 “You are from beneath; I am from above. You are of this world. I am not of this world. Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in you sins.”
It is commonly stated, “well, we all serve the same God.” Unless your God has a Son that died for the sins of the world and rose again in resurrection power, he is not the same God that is identified in God’s Word.
John 8:49-51 “Jesus answered, I do not have a demon; but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me. And I do not seek My own glory; there is One who seeks and judges. Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My Word, he shall never see death.”
