I learned that Jesus Christ had died for my sins and was raised again so that I might experience God’s forgiveness and new life in Him. At that moment, I turned my life over to Christ. I prayed, “Lord Jesus, if You can change me, come into me and do it. I sure need to be changed."
Is this, then, what Jesus had in mind when He talked of an “abundant life”? No! But if people have never experienced anything different, they will accept their predicament as normal. They will assume “that’s just the way it is."
I knew the Bible frontward and backward, but that knowledge alone didn’t change my condition. In my experience, Jesus got lost in the Bible.
Lord, I don’t care what the organization that I used to be with taught me. I don’t care what the church I’m in or the denomination to which I belong has taught me. I want You to teach me afresh, all over again. I want to know the truth that You promised would set me free. I’m tired of listening to people. I’m ready to listen to You.
More than anything else, I wanted to know more fully the Person of Jesus Christ whom the Bible reveals. I thank God with all my heart that He led me to find what I was looking for—a return to Classic Christianity.
Christianity is not a religion; it’s a relationship with God through His Son Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ did not come just to get men out of hell and into heaven; He came to get Himself out of heaven and into men!
The issue in salvation is life and death. Jesus Christ, spiritually alive, laid down His life for us. Why? So that He could give His life to us!
Until you rest in the finality of the cross, you will never experience the reality of the resurrection.
There is only one way to determine your identity that cannot be shaken, one foundation that cannot be taken away from you: “I am a child of God.”
We don’t need a good self-image. We need a proper self-image—one that comes from God’s Word.
The most powerful, life-changing power in existence is the message of God’s unconditional love and acceptance in Jesus Christ.
God will never love or accept you one ounce less or one ounce more than He does right this minute. That’s a truth to build a life on!
The goal of the Christian life is not to stop sinning! It is to start trusting.
To be filled with the Spirit is to be totally filled with the knowledge of God’s love and grace in Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ laid down His life for us, so that He could give His life to us, so that He could live His life through us! That’s the entire gospel in a nutshell.
We must first receive God’s unconditional love and acceptance for us before we will ever learn to love Him in return.
You may not know what will happen to you tomorrow, but you can know that the same Christ who loves you perfectly today is already there.
Listen, open the door of your heart, and discover that Classic Christianity is a Person—the living Lord Jesus Christ.
Classic Comments My life changed completely...

My life changed completely...

When the Lord put a copy of Classic Christianity in my hands, my life changed completely.

Years ago, I was a great mess. Brought up in a charismatic church, I learned to walk by feelings and not by faith in Jesus Christ. Eventually, my feelings led me to alcohol, drugs, and depression. When the Lord miraculously put a copy of Classic Christianity into my hands, my life changed completely.

I started studying my Bible like crazy, and I have grown in the Lord a lot since then. Now, the message of the grace of God is the most natural thing in the world to me, and I can’t even understand why it was so difficult to grasp back then.

I hope this news is also an encouragement to you. Last year, I translated Classic Christianity into Dutch. I even found a willing publisher. We are now in the final stage, and we are hoping it will be printed within a couple of months. I will send you a copy as soon as it is finished so you can learn Dutch!

Almost every day, I thank God for how he changed my life around. I also thank Him often for leading me to such a great, loving mentor and teacher who always helps me to keep my eyes focused on where they belong…on Jesus, and nothing or no one else.

Edwin, the Netherlands
