You can enter into a deep, joyful and fulfilling relationship with the One Creator of heaven and earth without having anyone else involved in that relationship aside from the two of you: G-d and yourself.
Don’t let anyone tell you that your Creator is “unapproachable”. You don’t need anyone to stand between you and Him.
He is close to all who call upon Him in truth (Psalm 145:18).
You are NOT damned to hell forever and ever. The One who created you knows your weaknesses; He doesn’t expect you to be more than human.
When you do wrong, you don’t need a blood offering to get your Creator to forgive you.
G-d gave us His word that He will freely forgive all who turn to Him in sincere repentance (Isaiah 55:7).
No Purchase Necessary
You don’t need to “purchase” G-d’s favor. You don’t need to “pay” for His favor with your righteousness or your sacrifice. You don’t need to present Him with anyone else’s righteousness or with their sacrifice.
“Do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with your G-d” (Micah 6:8). These are not “bargaining chips”; these activities, in and of themselves ARE intimacy with G-d (Jeremiah 9:23; 22:16).
