Never Mind . . .

About all that stuff I wrote regarding salvation, (and all that is still waiting to be blogged regarding the sacrificial death, burial and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and our commitment to Him in faith).

Apparently all it takes to get into heaven is a card issued by Robert Schuller from the Crystal Cathedral.
Simply sign this card and get in free!

I only wonder about all the people:
That do not know the name of Jesus.
That don't know about the card.
Are not able to read.
Are not able to write and thus sign their name (maybe an X will do, assuming they can obtain a writing tool)
Those who do not have a wallet or even pocket to keep it in.
That have such poor self-esteem they feel they don't deserve such an offer, not knowing about the "Be-Happy Attitudes."

But mostly I wonder about what God Himself said regarding the matter.

1 Corinthians 15:1-4
Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

Romans 5:1,2
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

Faith in JESUS CHRIST or faith in a card?
