Uh oh, your free trial has expired. Before I give you any more information, you have to make your first payment. How shall it be?

Credit, Debit, or cash?

Heb 11:6  ...and apart from faith it is impossible to please well, for it behoveth him who is coming to God to believe that He is, and to those seeking Him He becometh a rewarder.

Without strife over the word "requires", this certainly is an axiomatic statement.  Yet it doesn't stand alone.  To my mind, this goes well with it:

Act 17:22  And Paul, having stood in the midst of the Areopagus, said, `Men, Athenians, in all things I perceive you as over-religious;
Act 17:23  for passing through and contemplating your objects of worship, I found also an erection on which had been inscribed: To God--unknown; whom, therefore--not knowing--ye do worship, this One I announce to you.
Act 17:24  `God, who did make the world, and all things in it, this One, of heaven and of earth being Lord, in temples made with hands doth not dwell,
Act 17:25  neither by the hands of men is He served--needing anything, He giving to all life, and breath, and all things;
Act 17:26  He made also of one blood every nation of men, to dwell upon all the face of the earth--having ordained times before appointed, and the bounds of their dwellings--
Act 17:27  to seek the Lord, if perhaps they did feel after Him and find, --though, indeed, He is not far from each one of us,
Act 17:28  for in Him we live, and move, and are; as also certain of your poets have said: For of Him also we are offspring.
Act 17:29  `Being, therefore, offspring of God, we ought not to think the Godhead to be like to gold, or silver, or stone, graving of art and device of man;
Act 17:30  the times, indeed, therefore, of the ignorance God having overlooked, doth now command all men everywhere to reform,
Act 17:31  because He did set a day in which He is about to judge the world in righteousness, by a man whom He did ordain, having given assurance to all, having raised him out of the dead.'

Act 17:32  And having heard of a rising again of the dead, some, indeed, were mocking, but others said, `We will hear thee again concerning this;'
Act 17:33  and so Paul went forth from the midst of them,
Act 17:34  and certain men having cleaved to him, did believe, among whom is also Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman, by name Damaris, and others with them.

I think Paul here presented the "things" one must believe.  If these "things" are not true, then Paul's faith (and mine) is for nothing.  If I think the story of Samson might be exaggeration, or hyperbole, or symbolic, or even mythological...and that the jawbone of an a@@ might be the name of a fashioned weapon rather than the partial skeleton of a donkey, so what?  If, however, Jesus did not rise from the, drink, and be merry (if you can manage it). 

That said, it still isn't faith which saves.  Certainly not faith alone.  All the men of faith listed in Hebrews died without the promise, though they all had faith.  We're saved by grace...and grace came by Jesus Christ.  Believe it or don't.

After meditating on this, I find I'm deeply troubled to know, God deliberately chose a name he knew would be hated, to insure we would be persecuted.

Do you consider this fair?

Acts 9:16
16 For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake.

Exactly! Just try to endure saying His true name and remembering it!

Matthew 10:22
"You will be hated by all because of My name,

Oh my word! It's all become so clear to me now. Who wouldn't hate that name?

Yes, yes sister. We take your money.... Er, I mean concerns very seriously. Where else will God work, if now from our pockets?

Always remember this verse, dear friend:
1 Corinthians 2:9 FWV
But as it is written: Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither entered into our pants pockets, the blessings that come outeth unto those who tithe us money.

Don't forget the true name of our Savior: Yeshualabadadoodachilidee Halmayeshamadogeedooda. Yes, we found this on a nonexistent manuscript, in a nonexistent language, in a pigs dinner. Unless you speak this language perfectly, you will never fully be blessed from your tithing.

Excuse me sir, but I have a couple of questions. Do you mean if I follow all of the steps, I will literally  have God in my pocket?  If so, am I always required to wear pockets?

These might seem like stupid questions, but I take my salvation extremely serious.

Here are 7 steps that YOU can do, to make sure that you are saved:

1. Pay your tithes

2. Have as much doctrine as you can

3. Take everything Scripture physical and literal

4. If God didnt give it to you, then you didn't ask hard enough

5. Free will guarantees you anything you want

6. If there's pain, then God hates you

7. Everything starts and ends with you, and God can only be a tool to get your desires

And, you can find all this and more, in my book "Getting God in Your Pocket"

Find me at the nearest Secret Name Society.
