I am a Christian. I like using this analogy from the apostle Paul, from 1 Corinthians 13:11: "When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things." It's out of context, and I'll explain the meaning below.

But for now, it means that I'm putting away childish things. I'm 16 years old. I'm growing up. Sports is fun and all, but overall it's childish. (It's also rigged, but that's a different book.) I'm putting it away. I must move on with my life and do other things. I feel like my life isn't going anywhere, and I want to start now. I hope you understand.

The contextual meaning of the Scripture above is that when Paul converted, he put away the sinful life he lived. He got saved, and he's showing evidence of it.

This is my call to you. I ask that all of you would put away this childish life of sin. Sin leads to death. Not just physical death, but spiritual death. The diffrence is that physical death you can be resurrected through Christ, but not spiritual. Sin is the cause of this. But God gave us Jesus. He died for our sins so we wouldn't pay for it ourselves. Nothing we can do alone can get us in Heaven. What's so special about His death is that Jesus never sinned. He's the Son of God. The 1st and last. Put your faith in Him, confess that you sinned (look at 10 Commandments), confess that He's Lord, and repent from sin (what dishonors God). That's salvation.

Maybe I'll see you in Heaven.
