13 and thinking of joining a gang. What does the Bible say?
do we draw near to this great God?
Many churches will tell you that
to do this you must keep the law. Unfortunately they often mean the law
of the Old Testament, which did at one time have a purpose.
But we, since
the time of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, draw near
to God in spirit and in truth -John
4:23,24 "But the hour cometh and now is, when the true worshippers
shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father seeketh
such to worship him. God is a Spirit and they that worship him must worship
him in spirit and in truth." Hebrews
7:19 "For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better
hope did, by the which we draw nigh unto God."
does it mean to be saved?
