Welcome to I’ll Be Honest

We are a Christian web site that is seeking to teach the Biblical Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The term “Christian” has been used by millions in the world, but what does it actually mean to be a Christian? What makes someone a genuine follower of Jesus Christ? In the 11 minute video to the right, Steve Lawson talks about what a true follower of Jesus Christ is.

Consider how Jesus Christ is alive – no bones in His tomb. He is exalted to the right hand of God and rules the universe. He will come back and raise the dead and judge all men. Are you prepared? Jesus died for sinners. Do you qualify? Sadly, most miss heaven because they think they are ‘good enough’ or ‘better than’. Rather, Jesus came to save sinners (1 Tim. 1:15). Are you bad enough to be a candidate for the grace of God? Trash your pride and come to Him as a hell-deserving sinner. God does not forgive without blood (Heb. 9:22). Either we must die for our sins (and perish in hell) or find a substitute. There’s only one – Jesus Christ. Have you trusted Him? The majority of Americans say they have “accepted Christ” and yet their lives don’t add up to what it truly means to be a Christian. So are these people truly Christians? Titus 1:16 says – They profess to know God, but they deny him by their works. They are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good work. 

The Shocking Message

Years ago brother Paul Washer preached this powerful sermon to 5,000 youth that God has used over the years to awaken many people to see the true state of their soul.  Many have recognized that they had never truly been saved, but had simply said a sinner’s prayer that only left them the same as they had been before. You can watch this powerful sermon to the left.

So is your hope in Jesus Christ? Look at all the time and money you spend on bread for your belly and yet, with all of that, you will die. If you would feed on Christ, that is, His very person and His death for sinners as only hope of heaven, you would never die — victory over the grave and the second death which is hell. “If anyone eats of this bread, he shall live forever,” John 6:51. By one man’s disobedience all were condemned by God. By another Man’s obedience, all in Him are justified by God. God appointed only two heads for humanity — Adam and Christ. Thus, there are ultimately only two races – the cursed and the blessed, the guilty and the forgiven, the natural and the spiritual, the sinful and the holy, the God-haters and the God-lovers, the cowards and the believers, the stubborn and the penitent. Are you still in Adam or are you now in Christ? (Romans 5:12ff). Are you the same you’ve always been? If so it is proof positive you are not a true Christian. For, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature. Have you been born again? (2 Cor 5:17) Sin is stronger than your own will power. We can’t turn from sin whenever we want. Man is a slave to sin. He is tyrannized by sin. He needs a Savior. Jesus Christ alone will do. Come.
