Point P

P.) Did you know that God deliberately "created us" from day 1 "with a selfish nature", that wants its own way no matter what, (just like a baby that howls until it gets what it wants).

God created us with that selfish nature in us, for us to learn to how to overcome that selfish nature.

God gives us an option (His Holy Spirit) to overcome that selfish nature, so that we can develop the necessary character; so that He can then make us a spirit being that has control of its nature, and therefore can be trusted never to short-change, yell at, or harm another spirit being for eternity.

Churches of the World teach people that we are all God's wonderful children, when in fact by our inherent nature, and by our own choice, we are "all"




following the Devil's ways,

and that is why we have all this violence, war, greed, and poverty and on earth.

We can only overcome that nature through access to the power given to us through God's Spirit,

and by our choice to choose to be an overcomer

by following the Bible "exactly" as it is written.


Many Scriptures "clearly" and definitely "state" that:
"ONLY" THE OVERCOMERS will inherit the Kingdom.
Revelation 2:7, 11, 17, 26-27;
Revelation 3:5, 12, 21.

 And NONE OF US are guaranteed salvation. Jesus warned, "But he that shall ENDURE TO THE END, the same shall be SAVED" (Matt.24:13).

Jesus did "not" teach that all we have to do is "believe" on Him, and then we are saved.

Instead Jesus said powerfully:

"IF you will enter into life, KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS" (Matt.19:17).

Jesus also told his disciples, "STRIVE to enter in at the straight gate: for MANY, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able" (Luke 13:24).

The Greek word for "strive" in this verse is agonizomai, and means, "struggle, compete for a prize, to contend with an adversary, to endeavour to accomplish something; to FIGHT, LABOR FERVENTLY, STRIVE" (Strong's Exhaustive Concordance ).

True spiritual birth is "a LIFELONG PROCESS of obeying God" and overcoming self will to do things God's way.

All Denominations COMPLETELY OVERLOOK or DISTORT these plain and clear passages of Scripture.

These pages are religious logs, also known as a WebLog, or Blog, by Lawrence A. Nowell totally independent.
This article was written also, because, many who I know through International Pharmaceuticals, are sick and dying, and have asked me:
"How" and "why", do you "Lawrence" have such faith, kindness, and confidence in God:
The answer is:
Do "you"
love God enough to do things "His" way?
