    Hi to you all,I am new at this,therefore please allow me to introduce myself to you. My name is: Jorge Gutierrez. I am a Puertorican whom lives in New York City. I would like to write about religious things,and the belief that people have on them. As I write,I would be doing my best to bring forward biblical paragraphs which would prove what I would be writing about.

    It seems to me that many people whom believe do so when something catastrophic happends to them in there life,mean while there mere believe its just a normal routine,a sunday meeting for the Catholics,or a two,or three days thing for some other religeous believers such as: Pentecostal,or evangelist Ect.ect. Now, well.What if I tell you that even those whom by going to church,and making in there own eyes a great sacrifice before there Lord,God, are not save? Well,I think you should believe that,why? I would proof to you why,and not by my words,but by the word of God himself.

    I would be pointing out to you from both,the New as well as from the Old Testament of the Bible some Chapters and Verses please read them yourself. I would start from the New Testament:

    Lukes Chapter 13 Vers.23,24. Book of Romans Chapter 9 Vers 16.
    The Old Testament: Proverbs Chapt.19 vers.21. also see Chapt.20 vers.24.

    I am not a Christian,for I consider a Christian one whom acts,and do the things that Christ did,and niether am I a Religious Man,for I do not even visit a church,but what I'am is a mere believer in Jesus Christ thru the Grace of God,I'am just another sinner whom is always asking for forgiveness from the Lord bescause I do not even know when have I done something wrong,for we do wrong sometimes,and don't even acknowlegde that we have done something wrong at all.

    I understand that there are many people whom do not know about the Scriptures,and because of that a lot of people fail to follow the things that God want from us to do,and follow. But no one can force anyone else to do something which they dont want to do,and that includes even making someone read something.

    I have written these Biblical verses,now it is up to you whether you read them,or not.Going back to the topic.It seems that it have always been this way;That when we are put into distress then we look,and search for God,and I mean really look,and search for God.About this,I would write again some Biblical Verses,again it is up to you wether you would read them or not.

    Psalms Cahpter 78 Vers.34to 39. Book of Judges Chapter 10 vers.10 to 16. II of Chronicles Chapt.12 vers.6.

    What I have given to you hear are just a few examples of what I have been writing about,that when we are really put in distress then we really look to God for he may free,and save us,but meanwhile it seems that after everything goes well with us we forget over,and over again of God. I did not even mentioned here King Ezequias whom in the time of the Prophet Isaias made a prayer to God when he learn that he was going to die soon,and God heard his prayers and added to him Fifteen years to his life,that is written in: Book of Isaias Chapt.38.

    I Know,and understand that today things are a bit different than what they were back then,in these days we have Televisions,radios,computers,and a great deal of electronics that make it in some way kind of hard for someone to truly follow God (JesusChrist).But even that it is not an excuse for not to do the Right thing,and keep him in Mind at all times.

    I hope that by what I just have finish writing here,some of you may think a bit more about he whom do,and make everything possible.I'am not trying to convince anyone by what I have just wrote,but all I'am trying to do here is make you see,and understand that to me God is Real.

    Thank you all for reading this my opening text.May the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all,thank you.

    PS. Please forgive me if there is any word mispell since this is not my primary language,once again: Thank you very much.

      No, no. I think he should tell us what he thinks we should believe. It does not matter if this is offensive to people who do not like being told what others think they should do. They need to understand that this is the tRUTH.

      I like it. Well done quoting the entire thing atomswifey.

      Very good work. Excellent. Both of you.

          No - this is the place to tell other's what they should believe.

          I agree with you. I liked the quoting the entire thing also. Excellent work.

          Why the hostility? I am agreeing with you. Good work.

    Welcome to HP

    Interesting read, but aren't you contradicting yourself??

    "I am not a Christian,for I consider a Christian one whom acts,and do the things that Christ did,and niether am I a Religious Man,for I do not even visit a church,but what I'am is a mere believer in Jesus Christ thru the Grace of God,I'am just another sinner whom is always asking for forgiveness from the Lord bescause I do not even know when have I done something wrong,for we do wrong sometimes,and don't even acknowlegde that we have done something wrong at all".

    A Christian and a Believer is the Same thing.

    and at the end of your post you wrote:

    "I'am not trying to convince anyone by what I have just wrote,but all I'am trying to do here is make you see,and understand that to me God is Real".

    jorge,

    as jacob suggests, write a hub.  it will be far more beneficial for you, less irritating for others, and everyone will sleep better at nite, if your good lord allows it.

    also, religious comments (sermons) of this length (word count) are generally reserved for sunday mornings at 10:15 a.m.  please try to spread your word accordingly.
