it is time to study some of the most basic teachings of the word of God. Some
things in life are negotiable. We may negotiate or dicker when we buy a new car
or an item at a flea market but the word of God is not negotiable. If we want to
go to heaven, we must go God’s way. There is no other way.
Bible speaks of two ways—the broad way (wide) and the strait way (narrow).
Sinners are on the broad way and saints are on the narrow way. Read Matthew 7:13
and 14. Three is not a list of other ways we may choose to get to heaven. Jesus
clearly tells us that He is the only way.

first basic teaching that we want to study is repentance. It is very important

God, becoming a member of the family of God.
From that day forward, walk in all the light of the word of god as
He reveals it to you.
