The free Gift to share

By Stewart Topping

Jesus birth is celebrated once a year and Jesus death is celebrated once a year, but the free gift he gave is available 365 day a year.  We can also give that gift away to anyone who will listen.

To receive this free gift it only requires that you believe that God his son Jesus to die on the cross and then was buried and rose again by the holy spirit for your sin.

Remember this verse…….

8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. (Eph 2; 8-100 (KJV)

It is a free gift from God; we do not have to work for our salvation. God set the plan of redemption in motion in Genesis after Adams sin. The plan came to a conclusion when Jesus said “it is finished” on the cross. John 19:30 (KJV)

What is the requirement “whoever believeth in Jesus will have everlasting life.”

 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

This verse has a little more detail. Spend some time reading this.

2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worked in the children of disobedience: 3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. 4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7 That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. (Eph 2:2-7) (KJV)

Before we believed we walked according to the course of the World which has the influence according to satan. We were children of wrath and dead in our sins.  We were raised up by the Holy Spirit along with Jesus. We needed to be redeemed.

This year give away the free Gift from God. Tell someone. 

For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23) (KJV)

Catholics, Mormons, Evangelicals, Scientologists: ‘HHS Breaches Free Exercise Clause’

July 2, 2013 – 1:48 PM

( — An open letter signed by leaders representing numerous religious denominations, including Catholics, Baptists, Anglicans, Lutherans, Mormons, Jews, Hindus and Scientologists, blasted the Obama administration’s Health and Human Services contraception mandate as a “coercive” threat to religious liberty in the U.S., one which “puts the administration in the position of defining – or casting aside – religious doctrine.”The letter, entitled “Standing Together for Religious Freedom,” was released Tuesday at the National Press Club by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, which are spearheading opposition to the HHS mandate.

“Many of the signatories on this letter do not hold doctrinal objections to the use of contraception,” the letter noted. “Yet we stand united in protest to this mandate, recognizing the encroachment on the conscience of our fellow citizens. Whether or not we agree with the particular conscientious objection is beside the point. HHS continues to deny many Americans the freedom to manifest their beliefs through practice and observance in their daily lives.”

The final text of the HHS mandate was released June 28th. It requires companies that provide health insurance plans to provide their female employees with free coverage of sterilization, contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs even if doing so violates the owner’s religious beliefs.

“Very simply,” the letter stated, “HHS is forcing Citizen A, against his or her moral convictions, to purchase a product for Citizen B.” The ecumenical group agreed that “the federal government has neither a compelling interest nor the appropriate authority to coerce one citizen to fund or facilitate specific lifestyle choices of another.”

Noting that “the doctrines of our respective faiths require something of us beyond the walls of our churches, synagogues, temples, and other places of worship,” signatories reaffirmed the “universal principles affirmed and protected by the U.S. Constitution and other federal laws” regarding “the self-evident freedom of all people to exercise their faith according to the dictates of their consciences.”

The religious leaders called upon Congress to intervene “because HHS claims to be acting on authority granted by Congress.”

The letter was signed by Baltimore Archbishop William Lori, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops; Dr. Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptists’ Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission; Anglican Church in North America Archbishop Robert Duncan; Rev. Dr. Matthew Harrison, president of the Lutheran Church’s Missouri Synod; Presiding Bishop Gary Stevenson of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints; Rabbi Aryeh Spero, president of Caucus for America; Anuttama Dasa, minister of communications of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness; and Rev. Susan Taylor, national public affairs director of the Church of Scientology.

Other religious leaders, including clerics, theologians, college presidents, and leaders of various lay groups promoting religious liberty also signed the letter.
