Quote of the Week

The essence of eternal life is not found in having my sins forgiven, in possessing a mansion in heaven, or in having streets of gold to walk forever. Rather the essence of eternal life is intimately knowing God and Jesus Christ whom He has sent. Everything else that God gives me in the gospel serves merely to bring me to Himself so that this great end may be achieved.

Milton Vincent, A Gospel Primer, p49

AMEN!!! If more Christians understood that salvation is not mainly about getting a personal free ticket to heaven, the world would be a much different place.

Paul - yes, we've lost sight of the true gospel...reconciliation with the eternal God.
