God came into this world in the person of Jesus Christ, the second person of the 'trinity', and loved us enough to pay for our sins with His own blood.
The only way to be saved for eternity is to trust in Jesus as our Savior and repent of our sins. Outside of this, there is no salvation.

Welcome to kennethmontgomerykeillor.com
I hope you are watching events in the Middle East with as much fascination as I am.
It is all leading up to the invasion of Israel by the Russian, Arabic, Islamic alliance.
It will be a nuclear war.
The 'Rapture' will happen one of these days. It occurs shortly before the identity of the 'Antichrist' world dictator is revealed to the world.
All true Christians will be snatched away by God to Heaven for about 7 years.
As aforementioned, there will be an evil world government ruled by a world dictator. The Bilderberg group and others are working hard to put it together.
This world dictator is commonly referred to as the 'Antichrist'.
There will also be a false world religious leader. The Bible calls him the 'False Prophet'.
Jesus casts them both into Hell when He returns.
Humanity will be required to receive a mark in their right hand or forehead.
Possibly a microchip or the new EES Epidermal Electronic System.
Without it, they won't be able to buy or sell.
The Bible calls it the 'Mark of the Beast'.
All who accept the mark will go to Hell.
The Antichrist will arrange a 7 year peace treaty for the Middle East.
The 7 year 'Tribulation' period begins with the Antichrist signing this peace treaty with Israel.
A new Jewish temple will be built and the sacrifices and oblations to God re-instated.
If I'm reading Bible prophecy correctly, Russia, Iran and their allies invade Israel half way through the 7 years.
In any case, the 7 year agreement is violated by the Antichrist after 3 and one half years (42 months). The temple sacrifices are halted.
Around this time, scripture seems to indicate that the Antichrist will be killed.
Satan will revive him and all the world will wonder after him and worship him.
The Antichrist stands in the temple declaring himself to be God.
An 'image' of the Antichrist is placed in the temple speaking blasphemies against God.
A scriptural argument can also be made for the Russian invasion of Israel occurring shortly before or after the 'Rapture' and before the 7 year 'Tribulation' period.
This means the Russia-Israel war could be even closer than a lot of people think.
At some point, Syria will be smashed as well.
I don't know if this is during the same war or a different one.
After Russia's defeat, China and it's allies march into the Middle East.
Another wave of nuclear war kills one third of humankind.
By the end of the 7 years, the Antichrist and whichever armies remain prepare to descend upon Israel.
This is when Jesus Christ comes from Heaven with the raptured Christians and sets foot on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem.
The mountain splits in half under His feet and there is a great earthquake.
The Antichrist's forces turn their guns on Him. (Rev. 19:19)
Jesus destroys them all and begins His eternal reign on the earth.
There is a lot more detail in the Bible.
This is just a brief overview of what's coming.
The original, unaltered Bible is the true and only Word of God. I recommend the old King James version.
To back its claims, the Bible has told the future with perfect accuracy for thousands of years.
Jesus is God Himself come in the flesh, the second person of the 'Trinity'.
Tell God you repent of your sins and trust in Jesus as your Saviour and you will be saved.
The alternative is to die lost in your sins and go to Hell forever.
I hope you make the right decision.
Jesus loves you.
How Will They Know
How will they know
If someone doesn't tell them
That Jesus Christ is God
And they'll go to Hell without Him
He paid for their sins
With His blood on the cross
And if they reject Him
They will surely die lost
Lost in their sins for all eternity
And only Jesus Christ could have set them free
Mohammed's in Hell and the Buddha died lost
Because they didn't bow down
At the foot of the cross
And Oprah will tell you any way is ok
But she'll burn in Hell one of these fine days
i praise you Jesus
You're my Savior and my King
And forever and a day Your praises I will sing
As the world keeps lusting after every desire
And they're on their way to the Lake of Fire
The mockers keep mocking and blasphemers blaspheme
Until they go to Hell and they howl and scream
And they thought it was a party
And their friends would be there
But when they arrive, they won't find them anywhere
Just demons in the darkness and some tortured souls
And all the lies they loved that the devil told
They've died in their sins and themselves they condemn
And even in Hell, God will always love them
ALEXANDRIA, La. (BP)--"One Jesus is historical and we know next to nothing about him," writes Deepak Chopra in his new book, "The Third Jesus." The New Age philosopher continues, "Another Jesus is the one appropriated by Christianity. He was created by the Church to fulfill its agenda. The third Jesus, the one this book is about, is as yet so unknown that even the most devout Christians don't expect he exists."
In the book, released in February by Harmony, Chopra states, "I have written what I think the New Testament means…" And what it means to Chopra, the author of more than 40 books, is quite different from the way orthodox Christians have understood it through the centuries.
Chopra believes that the "real" Jesus -– the third Jesus -- is much less than the New Testament makes him out to be.
"I want to offer the possibility that Jesus was truly as he proclaimed, a savior. Not 'the' savior, not the one and only Son of God," writes Chopra. "Rather, Jesus embodied the highest level of enlightenment… Jesus intended to save the world by showing others the path of God-consciousness."
According to Chopra, Jesus was nothing more than an adherent to what we now call New Age philosophy.
"Jesus did not physically descend from God's dwelling place … nor did he return to sit at the right hand of a literal throne," writes Chopra. "What made Jesus the Son of God was the fact that he had achieved God-consciousness."
We shouldn't discount Chopra's book and assume no one is reading it. Sadly, the opposite true. "The Third Jesus" -- full of New Age, heretical pabulum –- was ranked third March 30 on The New York Times' list for hardcover advice books.
Jesus' teachings, Chopra contends, were in-line with other "enlightened" teachers.
"The salvation Jesus offered was the same as Buddha's: release from suffering and a path to spiritual freedom, joy and closeness to God.'
According to Chopra, Jesus was not –- as the Bible states -- God who became flesh for the purpose of dying on the cross to pay the penalty for sin.
"Christianity is burdened by some impossible expectations," asserts Chopra, "and one of them it that God forgave all sins through Jesus."
Chopra contends that Jesus was nothing more than a man who tapped into his inner divinity through self-effort. And it is something, Chopra says, that we all can do.
How does Chopra deal with quotes where Jesus claims to be God? Such quotes pose no problem for the New Age guru, who contends that Jesus simply was misunderstood.
"This audacious claim that Jesus was the same as God infuriated the priests," Chopra writes. "They couldn't comprehend that 'I am God' is the simplest statement for someone in God-consciousness."
According to Chopra, "He [Jesus] meant something much more mystical when he says that he and the Father are one or that he is in the Father and the Father is in him."
In order to deconstruct the orthodox Christian understanding of Jesus, Chopra finds it necessary to undermine the credibility of the gospels.
"The writers of the gospels set out not to tell the facts of a life but to convert nonbelievers and support their own belief in Jesus as the Messiah," he writes. "To this end they almost certainly exaggerated events, invented miracles, and put words into his mouth."
According to Chopra, among the words the gospel writers put in Jesus mouth have to do with his claim to be the only way of salvation. "Jesus spoke of the necessity to believe in him as the road to salvation," Chopra writes, "but these words were put in his mouth by his followers' decades later."
To further render the gospels as unreliable, Chopra asserts, "It is likely that many unknown scribes altered the original texts of the New Testament before a final version was settled on between the third and forth centuries AD."
"Unless you believe that the gospels are revealed truth," Chopra writes, "there are enough internal problems with the four gospels, I think, to question –- and open to interpretation -– the Jesus we meet in the Bible."
In order to advance the New Age version of Jesus -– the "third Jesus" -– Chopra asserts that the orthodox version of Christianity is nothing more than a sham perpetrated through the centuries by a self-seeking church with its own suspect agenda. In essence, the Christ that is worshiped today by millions world-wide is a false version of Jesus, Chopra believes.
And I thought New Age adherents were tolerant. Can you imagine if an evangelical Christian made the same assertion about a religion -– any religion? He or she would be branded as a narrow-minded bigot and figuratively stoned in the mainstream media.
What is most interesting is how Chopra has no problem using the "unreliable" gospel accounts to support his argument for his "third Jesus." He quotes from Matthew 42 times, Luke 28 times, John 27 times and Mark five times. If the gospels are so unreliable and suspect, how can Chopra justify trusting them at any point?
It is obvious that when Chopra approaches the New Testament he is so blinded by his New Age "light" that he can only see that which supports it. As such, he cherry picks quotes of Jesus and twists them to fit his New Age version of a "third Jesus."
Chopra's "third Jesus" is no Jesus at all. He is nothing more than the figment of a New Age imagination.

+++ Jesus Loves You. +++ Welcome to my website. I am a born-again, fundamentalist Christian and an avid student of end time Bible prophecy. This site is dedicated to exposing counterfeit Christianity, cults, false religions and other diversions and lies which may distract and intrigue and even entertain you, but which cannot save your eternal soul. I believe that Jesus Christ is God, the second person of the Trinity, and that the only way of salvation is through repentance of sin and acceptance of Jesus Christ as our Savior. The bottom line is that whenever our life ends, we will either be with Jesus forever or we will suffer everlasting torment in the Lake of Fire that God has prepared for the devil and his fallen angels. Here is why I believe what I do. Unlike any other book in existence, the Bible has told the future with perfect accuracy for thousands of years and continues to do so. It has never been wrong. This is how God said He would prove that the Bible is His true word and He has done precisely that. For a quick update on events relating to Bible prophecy, check out one of my current favorite sites "RaptureReady.com".
+++ Jesus Loves You. +++
Is Jesus Christ God?
Yes. To clarify, the true and only living God, creator and sustainer of the universe is the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, commonly known as the Trinity, of the Christian bible. Jesus is the eternal God. He is not a created being. He is the Son of God the Father, but He is also God, the Son, the second person of the Trinity.
Is there any salvation outside of faith in Jesus?
No. Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Will Russia invade Israel?
Yes. Russia and Iran and their allies will attack Israel. It will result in a nuclear confrontation that Russia will lose. After that, China and it's allies will march into the Middle East resulting in another nuclear confrontation which will result in the death of one third of the world's population.
