We can’t even begin to tell you how many people have contacted us thinking they’ve committed the unpardonable sin. So many people feel that their hearts are hardened, that they’ve lost the Holy Spirit, that there’s no hope for them any longer . . .
We have one thing to say about this. If you want to return to God, He will accept you. Your heart isn’t too hard. You haven’t gone too far.
All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out.
John 6:37 (ESV)
I’ve Gone Too Far
Natacha sent in her testimony about three years ago. That’s how far behind I am. Really. But here it is.
It’s a unique story. It covers quite a bit of ground. It strikes me that we don’t hear of her conversion. We just hear, at the end, what she believes. Surely there was a moment when God changed her, but unfortunately it’s not included in the testimony.
But we do know, from reading the end, that Natacha understands that the only way to fulfillment is through Jesus Christ. And that is the whole point. Only He provides meaning. Only He gives us a legitimate reason to live.
Natacha’s Christian Testimony
Mark, my friend, seems to be quite the prolific writer. He’s just submitted yet another poem! Actually, he’s submitted a bunch that I haven’t posted. I need to get on the ball. In fact, I have lots of content that I haven’t posted. So stick around. More content (poems, articles, testimonies) coming in the near future!
Impossible, Amazing, Wonderful
A reader (not so recently) sent in the following questions:
Why did Satan want Moses’ body? Why did God hide his body? If the body is destroyed (burned or lost due to other reasons) will this be a concern as far as bodily resurrection is concerned? Lastly, what about cremation today? Will this be a hindrance come the day of resurrection?

The Resurrection of the Body – Is the Body Important to God?
. . . no matter how many times I tried I would always go back to drugs just as a pig goes back to wallow in the mud. I hated life and I hated myself. Other than the drugs I also had been secretly cutting my flesh for years as a way of punishing myself, but also as a way of releasing the anger and pain I felt inside. I would even punch myself at times and hurt myself in other ways, but the more I did this the more confused and fearful I became. I really believed I was becoming insane, because I did not think that anybody else would ever deliberately self-harm. I constantly lived in fear of being found out, but without any obvious way of changing things. I would numb myself with drugs, sex and anything else that would provide temporary relief from the confusion, fear and sadness I felt inside.

Yes, I know I’m behind. Way behind. Grossly behind. I just scrolled to the end of my unanswered emails (for truthsaves) and the last one contained this poem, from 08/11/2014. I like the poem so I’m posting it now. It reminds us of the significance of communion.

The Bread and the Wine
I work in a high school. Sometimes I see kids like Robert. And at times I wonder if there’s any hope for some of them. After reading Robert’s story, I am reminded of God’s power to work through us in the lives of others.
Robert Minor’s Christian Testimony
Here’s a recent question.
I’ve heard that you cannot earn God’s favor through actions, but that it is by faith alone. I have heard people say, “it’s impossible to live the Christian life” or “you can’t keep the law.” That’s why we need Jesus to live this new life through us. Yet, we are also commanded to repent, which is an action, a choice I must make. If my actions are ultimately futile and don’t earn favor, then how am I supposed to repent?
Check out Tim’s answer.
Are We Saved By Faith Alone? Or Must We Act?
Will Christians have to experience the tribulation? This is a topic that’s been discussed quite a bit on the site. Use the search function and do a search for the word “tribulation” and you’ll find a lot. But just tonight I found this article in my archives. Tim wrote it back in February of 2012 and I thought it would be a worthy addition to the site.
