The Gospel Equation

What is the “Gospel”?

The gospel is the “good news” about what Jesus Christ has done to reconcile sinners to God and to provide the way to salvation. Specifically, Jesus died on a cross approximately 2,000 years ago to pay the penalty for our sin (i.e., our violations against God’s Law, the Ten Commandments); he was buried and raised on the third day, which shows that God accepted his sacrifice. Thus, if we repent of our sins and put our full trust in Jesus Christ, we become born again into a new spiritual life, we become adopted children of God, and we will spend eternal life in heaven with God.

Bible IQ has developed an innovative way to help visually understand and share the “gospel” message and we call it THE GOSPEL EQUATION.   It’s essentially a mathematical equation of the gospel, which illustrates how God has “solved” our greatest problem (i.e., sin and eternal separation from God)!  It was designed not only to be ultra-simplistic, but to be visually-appealing through the use of impactful imagery.  In summary, THE GOSPEL EQUATION represents the process of how to be eternally saved (i.e., how to become a Christian and go to heaven) via the form of a mathematical equation using iconic Biblical symbols.

The 1st circle includes the iconic image of the “Ten Commandments” (God’s Law) and communicates the need to “Repent” (i.e., turn away from our sins and turn towards God), and reminds us that “sin” represents violations of God’s Law.

The 2nd circle includes the iconic image of the “Cross”, which represents Jesus dying for our sins. It further communicates the need to “Believe” that Jesus is God’s Son, that he died for our sins, and that he rose from the dead; and also the need to “Confess” Jesus Christ as our personal Lord & Savior.

The 3rd circle includes an image of the “Eternity” symbol, which represents the Biblical answer when we “Repent” of our sins and “Believe & Confess” in Jesus. In other words, when we are genuinely saved we will spend eternal life with God in heaven, which is referred to as “Salvation“.

In summary, THE GOSPEL EQUATION is “math with a purpose” that illustrates how to solve life’s greatest problem (i.e., how to be saved from our sin problem), and that my friends is “good news”!

The $1 Million Dollar Question:

Will you go to Heaven when you die? Here’s a quick test:
Q. Have you ever told a lie?
Q. Have you ever stolen anything?
Q. Have you ever used God’s name in vain?
Q. Have you ever lusted over someone?
Q. Have you ever hated someone?

If you have done these things, God sees you as a liar, a thief, a blasphemer, an adulterer-at-heart, and a murderer-at-heart. And this is only 5 of God’s Ten Commandments (a/k/a “God’s Law”). And the Bible warns that on the Day of Judgment, God will punish you in a terrible place called Hell. But, there is “good news”! God is not willing that any should perish. Sinners broke God’s Law, but Jesus paid their fine by shedding His sinless blood on a cross ~2,000 years ago. This means that God can legally dismiss their case (and yours!): “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.” (John 3:16) Then Jesus rose from the dead, defeating death. Today, repent (turn away from your sins), put your complete trust in Jesus, and confess Jesus as your Lord & Savior… and God will give you eternal life as a free gift.

The $1 Million Dollar Myth:

Contrary to popular belief, being a “good person”, doing “good deeds”, or being “religious” will not get you a ticket to heaven! Many people are hoping God will dismiss their sins because their good deeds outweigh their bad deeds. They further hope that because God is “good” he will let them go unpunished and enter heaven. However, because God is “good” he must by nature punish sinners (i.e., God would not be a good judge if he let criminals go free). The Bible states: “There is no one on earth who is righteous, no one who does what is right and never sins.” (Ecclesiastes 7:20) The Bible also states: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9) And finally, think about this, if your goodness could save you, Jesus would have died in vain (i.e., for no good reason). The Bible states: “I (Jesus) am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father (God) except through me. (John
14:6) Friends, please don’t “roll-the-dice” and gamble your eternal life on the life-threatening lie that being a “good person” will get you to heaven.

Yes, today I am deciding to follow Jesus:

Here is a prayer you can use to receive Jesus Christ as your personal Lord & Savior. It is a suggested prayer – the key is that you are speaking from your heart.
“Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me turn away from sin going forward. I believe that your Son, Jesus Christ, died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus into my heart and I confess him as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank You for sending your Holy Spirit to help me obey you, and to do your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.”

Congratulations! And welcome to God’s family!
