Questions That Need Answers
Qu. What do I need to do to become a Christian?
Ans. The most important thing you need to do is truly Believe Jesus Christ is the Lord and Saviour dying for ALL your sins so that you can be reconciled back to God. This act was made possible because God's love for you and Jesus' giving himself to stand in your place, for all you have or could do wrong in the eyes of God.

Ans. No, if indeed Jesus did die for ALL your sins, known and unknown,
and not just those you repented of, then your salvation cannot be
based on your repented sins.
Qu. After becoming a Christian, am I still a sinner because I sin
Ans. Once you become a Christian you are no longer a sinner, but have
become Righteous in the eyes of God. You are a righteous child

Qu. Can an Homosexual person be a Christian ?
Ans. The Bible teaches that the act of Homosexual practice is a
sin, alongside any form of sexual immorality, it however does
not exclude Homosexuals from the definition of who can be saved
in John 3:16, which uses the word, "whoever" not "whoever except
Homosexuals" so whilst we do not approve....we have to
accept Jesus also died for the individual struggling with Homosexuality who believes in Him. We do not approve of the act of homosexuality in any form, just like
we don't approve of sexual immorality. But it is not our place to
"cage" or control the coverage of the saving power of Jesus's
Qu. Why does God allow bad things to happen?
Ans. The reasons why God allows things to happen cannot be fully
explained by man. To have full explanation, is to fully know the
mind of God, which is not possible. But we know this much, man
has Freewill to do whatever he is capable of doing, and God has
permitted this Freewill both used for good and evil to remain
operative. As Christians, we have freely surrendered
use of our Freewill to take on the Will of God on a daily basis.
Although, we sometime make a mess of things, our willingness to
please God is what excites Him most.
Qu. Is Grace soft on Sin?
Ans. No! quite the opposite. The truth about Grace is "You don't have
to sin". Sin has no power over you if you are under Grace. You are
no longer limited to your ability to deal with sin. Under Grace you
now have "God Ability" working in you (The Holy Spirit).
A working definition of Grace is God's Ability working in man,
making him able to do what he cannot do in his own ability.
