“An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Right? Wrong! New research has found that daily apple eaters had as many doctor visits as others who ate fewer of no apples at all. So much for a quick fix by eating an apple a day for a healthy diet. But just as our physical bodies need a balanced diet for optimal health, so our spiritual needs require us to follow the only reliable rule book- the Bible- God’s inspired Word. Many, attempting to be pleasing to God, try the quick fixes of turning over a new leaf, giving to charities, attending church regularly or even being baptized. But God’s Rule Book tells us that self effort will never bring the desired result. How do I know that? The Book tells us that ”without faith it is impossible to please God.” He tells us that “there is none righteous, no not one.” And He tells us that when it comes to forgiveness and a home in heaven, “it is not by works of righteousness that we have done, but according to His mercy that He saves us.” That’s what the Good Book says.
