Dear Reader, when you get sick you don’t want to go to a dodgy doctor … do you?

You want to be told the truth … right?

You don’t want to be lied to … do you?

You don’t want to find out that you didn’t have an infection … and then nearly die … do you?

You want a proper remedy … don’t you?

OK then … here’s your terminal condition … you were born a sinner.

Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. Psalm 51:5

Furthermore, you are a sinner, you will be judged a sinner and you will be condemned a sinner, and “…whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. James 2:10

Now if you went to God and asked him “Dear God, how can I get into heaven?”

Would he reply with any of the following?

1.   “Well my child, keep the Law!”

2.   Fasting … that’s the solution!”

3.   Religion will get you into heaven!”

4.   “Consulting the philosophers of the world will see you in heaven!”

If he did, you could reply with his own scriptures about law, fasting, religion and philosophy.

“But God your scriptures say this about Dr Law

“For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope did; by the which we draw nigh unto God.” (Hebrews 7:19)

“But God your scriptures say this about Dr Fasting

“Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.” (Colossians 2:23)

“But God your scriptures say this about Dr Religion

“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.” (James 1:27)

… and as you know … the above says pure religion is still works (Ephesians 2:8-9) 

“But God your scriptures say this about Dr Philosophy

Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. (Colossians 2:8)

Now Dear Reader, there is many a false Dr Jesus out there as well.

You want the true Dr Jesus who says … “If you want rolled gold guarantee of getting into heaven ... you must have the SPIRITUAL CIRCUMCISION that cuts away the sins of your flesh! You must have your soul separated from your flesh!”

You want the true Dr Jesus who says the following

“In whom also ye are circumcised with THE CIRCUMCISION MADE WITHOUT HANDS, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:” (Colossians 2:11)
