    yes it is true Christ died on the cross and went through suffering for you!
  • Pauline
    John chapter 3 verse 16 answers this question for us very nicely.
  • Laura
    Jesus gave his perfect human life as a ransom to repay the perfect, everlasting life which Adam lost by disobeying Jehovah God in the Garden of Eden. Anyone who believes, repents and exercises faith in Jesus' ransom sacrifice in behalf of Adam's descendants(us), can be saved and have the wonderful hope of living a healthy life forever on an peaceful earth. See John ch17vs3, and Rev ch21 vs3,4,5.

    Is it true! Jesus is savior of the world? I want to know thank.
  • Norm
    For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, 1 Thessalonians 5:9. Thank You Father for the loving assurance that You will save all who love You in sincerity of heart. In CHRIST we are SAVED. Amen. The obedient who love the LORD and SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST in sincerity will be saved from wrath. The disobedient who believe they are appointed to the wrath of Great tribulation and try to deceive others to believe the same will suffer wrath.
  • Sylvia
    Seek the Lord while he can be found. He's coming back with his rewards and judgement will we be ready?
    Thank you father for your grace and mercy.
