文本正文

God is our creator. He is very powerful. He made the heaven and the earth and all that is in them. When the strong wind blows and the lightning flashes, remember that God controls everything in this world and in heaven. Men cannot make the wind stop blowing; they cannot keep the sun from shining. Man says, "I am strong," but before you know it he gets sick and dies. He cannot even control his thoughts, and often he does things he does not want to do. But God (is different. He is eternal.) Who is eternal, does His own will and He never changes. (He controls His own thinking and does what is right. He doesn't change His mind.) What He promises, He fulfills.

In the beginning, God made man in His own image (and man was like God. The first man's name was Adam and his wife's name was Eve. God loved Adam and Eve.) God loved the man and woman He had made. He told them not to eat of a certain tree. He said that if they did, they would die. God wanted them to live forever, but the enemy of man (God), the devil, was already in the world. He told them, "You won't really die." The devil is a liar, and he still is trying to keep people from believing God's Word, which is the Bible. The man and woman (Adam and Eve) believed the devil and disobeyed God. Since then everyone has disobeyed God. They (We) all have sinned, and everybody has (we all have) to die. God says the wicked shall be cast into hell. But God loves every person (us all). He wants us to go to live with Him in His beautiful home in heaven. He knows that we are on the road (that leads) to Hell, for nothing that is evil can enter heaven. Men and women needed (We need) someone who could (can) take away the evil and sin fromtheir (our) hearts and bear their (our) punishment. Finally God came down to this world Himself to do this. He became a man. (That is why God became man. He came down from heaven to live on this earth.)

(In this form,) He was called the Son of God. His name is Jesus Christ. He was holy (good). He did no sin, not even one. He healed the sick; He fed the people when they were hungry. He did great miracles which only God could do. He cast devils out of people, forgave their sins, stopped great storms, and raised the dead to life. But the wicked people (in that place) treated Him badly. They wanted to kill Him. They nailed Him to a cross. He gave Himself into their hands so that He could suffer for us and take the punishment that we deserve. They tortured Him and crucified Him. They buried Him, but since He was God as well as man, He rose up after three days, from the grave (after three days in the grave, He came back to life). After 40 days, (Forty days later) He ascended back into heaven. He is there now and is preparing a place for all those who believe Him (good place so that all those who believe Him can live with Him).

By believing with our hearts in Jesus Christ, God's Son, we are saved from our sins. Make Him your chief (Receive Him as your Saviour) and obey Him always. Then you will go to heaven when you die, to live with God forever (you will live with God forever). What God says, He will do (This is what God says. This is what He will do). God says that all those who receive (accept) Jesus, they are the ones He will give power to become the sons of God (will be His sons {children}). For God loved the world (people) so much that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him should not go to hell (be lost, perish), but have eternal life.
