Road to Roman approach.

Tom's Journal.

Yes!  Pure black and white-- the ONLY way to heaven is through JESUS CHRIST.  Period.  That means not thru the saints, virgin Mary, Mohammad, Krishna, Buddha, New Age- Mother Earth, the WatchTower cult or Mormonism, etc.   This message is so clear and simple that it jumps out of the Bible and bites us on the nose!  How hard is it to sit down in the peace and quiet of your own home or apartment/ bed room, and crack open that grand BOOK??  [ 2nd Timothy chapter 3, verse 16, says:  "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, of instruction in righteousness:  17. That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."].   All the important scriptural evidence is listed in easy to read logical order that many mature, well rooted Christian have memorized or have written down, and I am going to make it a main priority to MEMORIZE these texts in the next few months if not sooner!  

Friends,  we live in a fat, lazy, indifferent society that tells us to do what ever we want, be your own man, do your thing, put pleasure and selfishness above all else and just do it if it feels good!  One reason I liked the Army was because of the good discipline and training-- of learning a "new language" that is almost fool proof so you make few mistakes-- which can take lives.  You learn how to work and support the team and take orders without muttering a word.  It's called HONOR.  The bible and Christianity is much the same-- with a Brotherhood of Love and sacrifice and obedience to the Lord God.  We will never be perfect this side of heaven-- but I know that we all have a little slice of heaven right now on earth with our sacred brotherhood of saints, men, women and children!  It's a super good feeling to be one of them and in their company, and the most important thing in my life.  

This idea transcends any Country's patriotism, loyalty to some human Gov't, organization, other human friendships and bonds.  Think!  Eternity is forever-- live on earth now is very temporary.  "Life is a vapor."  And to be a low, humble sinner, clothed in filthy rags full of abomination and disease,  God loved us first!  He wrote the book on love.  

The "Road of Romans" is a way of putting some key scriptures of Salvation together in an orderly way that makes sense--makes pure logic, and helps other to understand how much God the Father loves us humans.  it is a logical progression that builds up to a peak or climax and realization that we ought/ need to be Saved, and then SHARE THIS WITH OTHER PEOPLE-- BEFORE the end.
Please take the time to cut and paste this, print it and save it until you know it perfectly.  It is one of the good ways to preach, teach, share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, IMHO.

Warm Regards,


ROMANS 3:10 As it is written,There is
none righteous,no,not one;

ROMANS 3:23-24 For all have sinned,
and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

ROMANS 5:7-8 For scarcely for a righteous
man will one die: yet peradventure for a
good man some would even dare to die.
But God commendeth his love toward us,
in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ
died for us.

ROMANS 6:23 For the wages of sin is
death; but the gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

ROMANS 10:9-11 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt
believe in thine heart that God hath raised
him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession
is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
