The separation of God and man occurred when Adam and Eve sinned by disobeying God in the Garden of Eden. Their sins of disobedience caused all of humanity to be separated from God.
This means that each person born into this world is separated from God, doomed to Hell, and will not be allowed to enter Heaven. However, God in His love for us provided a way of restoration.
God has created humanity with the desire to worship Him. People from every area of the world have an inborn desire to worship. Many, in their search for God, attempt to worship 'things' such as man-made Idols, or even animals. Some fall into witchcraft or astrology.
These forms of worship are detestable to God. God is alive, not dead as are these objects of worship. He calls it a sin to worship anything, or anyone, other than Himself.
"You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God,..." (Deut 5:7-9) NIV
God wants you to worship only Him and has a plan wherein you can end this separation of God and man and be completely restored to Him. And how did He do this? He sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross for the sins of all mankind.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." (John 3:16-17)
Jesus paid the price for our sins when He willingly allowed Himself to be crucified (killed) by being nailed to a wooden cross, where he suffered until He died. He freely gave His life for us so that we might be saved.
What Does it Mean to be Saved?
To be saved, born again, or to become a Christian, all mean the same thing:
Being Saved Will Enable You to:
There is Only One Way to be Saved and end your Separation from God
God and the things in Heaven are without sin (perfect). God demands perfection, but it is impossible for man to live a perfect life. We cannot do enough good deeds or live good enough, to earn our way into Heaven.
There is only one way to enter Heaven, and that is through Jesus. "Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by whom we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)
To begin your walk with God, and receive your gift of eternal life, there is something you must do:
"That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe
in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth
confession is made unto salvation."(Rom 10:9-10)
