Thank you for spending so much time with us. You have worked hard to reach this page. Well done!
But you have not only studied another religion. While you read the Bible you would have come to new understanding of the Christian message. You have realized, no doubt, that the content of the Bible is trustworthy and its message practical, spiritual and very beautiful. You will not have escaped the urge to compare what you learnt with what you heard about the Bible in the past.
Now you have to make a decision. Your sober judgement and subsequent choice is a matter of life and death, eternally.
Perhaps you have considered the cost involved in receiving God's pardon through Jesus, as outlined in these lessons. You became aware that the cost is likely to be very high. Jesus encourages those who consider following Him to count the cost (Luke 14:27-33; Matthew 16:24-26).
When you consider a price, you will compare it to the value that you get for it. How much could one invest for finding peace with God? What are we prepared to invest to have our sins forgiven and to receive a new, clean start in life?
“What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matthew 16:26.)
As you consider the reaction of your family, you should consider the possibility of letting them study this course with you. It is not uncommon for a whole family to seek and find peace with God, by accepting Jesus into their heart and home. Jesus says:
“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will go in and eat with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20).
We pray that God will enable you to see the truth and to open that door in faith.
Make this decision for yourself! By all means consider your position, but do not be influenced by people. Obey only God and His Word. If you need answers to questions which you feel have not been dealt with in this course, you should please write to us.
Whatever you decide, please let us know, and give the reasons for your decision. May the eternal and almighty God give you the wisdom and courage to truly submit to Him!
