  • Worry is unscriptural

    We have the notion that things can give us peace, but in reality they create worry. Do you remember the thrill of your first car? You could not rest until your name was on the Bill of Sale. Then you discovered the headache of taking care of your car and meeting the payments.

Christians believe that Jesus, the son of God, was sent to Earth and died on the cross to save humanity. Through faith in Jesus, one can be saved from God’s punishment. Believers go to Heaven and have eternal life with God. This is very similar to another religion, Islam.
