So You Say You Are a Christian (Gospel Light Minute X #361)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #361 titled, “So You Say You Are a Christian.” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.

How long have you been a Christian?

You may say, “I try to keep the Ten Commandments and do the best I can.” Some people say, “I became a Christian when I got baptized.” Others say, “I was born into a Christian family.”

How does someone become a Christian?

If someone could become a Christian by being born into a Christian family, by keeping the Ten Commandments, or by being baptized, we need to ask ourselves a very important question: Why did Jesus have to come to earth and die on the cross? My friend, the Bible has the answer! Continue reading “So You Say You Are a Christian (Gospel Light Minute X #361)”

God Loves You — He Really Does (Gospel Light Minute X #357)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #357 titled, “God Loves You–He Really Does.” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.



The Holy Bible says, “God is love.” Please do not resent us for sharing the Gospel with you. We love your soul, and we want to tell you that if you have never been born again, you are on your journey to a place where you will burn forever and ever.

You see, the human race began when God created the first man, Adam. Adam was created sinless, yet he was also created with the ability to choose whether he would accept or reject God’s rule. God commanded Adam not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; for in that day that he ate from the tree, he would die. The Bible says in Genesis 2:16-17, “And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”

Adam disobeyed God’s commandment and ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and on that day, he died spiritually. The Bible says in Romans 5:12, “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” The Bible states here that because Adam sinned, all people are born with the nature of sin. If you have never been born again, you are spiritually dead toward God, just like Adam. If you continue in this condition until death takes you from this world, you will be eternally condemned to the lake of fire. The Bible says in Revelation 20:15, “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Continue reading “God Loves You — He Really Does (Gospel Light Minute X #357)”

The Story of the Wordless Book (Gospel Light Minute X #356)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #356 titled, “The Story of the Wordless Book.” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.



Dr. Baedecker, who for many years lived in England, obtained, through a Russian Princess, permission from the government of Russia, to visit all prisons and penitentiaries in the Russian empire, to give Bibles and Testaments to the prisoners. An interesting incident has been told of a visit in a Siberian penitentiary where an official conducted the Doctor in his visit and said: “We have at present a murderer in our charge”

‘Have I seen him?” the Doctor asked.

“No, he is in solitary confinement,” the official replied.

“Take me to his cell, please,” the Doctor said.

Preceded by wardens, the Doctor stumbled down the stone steps, into a dark basement, and in a gloomy dungeon the object of their search was discovered. Dr. Baedecker offered the man a New Testament, but pitifully he said, “I cannot read, thank you.” Continue reading “The Story of the Wordless Book (Gospel Light Minute X #356)”

You’re Cordially Invited to Heaven R.S.V.P. (Gospel Light Minute X #355)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #355 titled, “You’re Cordially Invited to Heaven R.S.V.P.” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.



You are cordially invited to join the family of God and to enjoy all its benefits for now and eternity. R.S.V.P.

Did you know that God has already sent a special invitation to you? He doesn’t require that you dress up to approach Him or turn over a new leaf to impress Him. You can come just as you are. Yet this is the most important invitation you will ever receive.

The Bible gives God’s open invitation in Isaiah 55:6: “Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near”. In Matthew 11:28, Jesus Himself invites you, saying: “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest”. Continue reading “You’re Cordially Invited to Heaven R.S.V.P.

Who is the One and Only Jesus? (Gospel Light Minute X #353)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #353 titled, “Who is the One and Only Jesus?” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.



Many men have been given the name “Jesus.” In Bible times, the naming of children was more serious than today. Today, parents name their child after a loved one or friend, or perhaps a name they think is pretty. In Bible times, children were given names which related to certain things, especially those in references to God. The Apostle Paul warned in 2 Corinthians 11:4 about the possibility of another Jesus being preached. We desire to present unto you the Jesus of the Bible. No person except Jesus Christ could fulfill the meaning of the name “Jesus,” because of Who and What He is. Continue reading “Who is the One and Only Jesus? (Gospel Light Minute X #353)”

Don’t Be Surprised (Gospel Light Minute X #350)

This is the “chief of sinners,” Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International, with the Gospel Light Minute X Podcast #350 titled, “Don’t Be Surprised.” I’m here to remind you of what the Bible says, that “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” like you and me.



We get surprised when things come upon us unexpectedly. Many things that occur in our lives come without warning. Sometimes things like sickness, bills and family crises just cannot be anticipated. Even our own death can come by surprise. What comes after death, however, is something that does not need to be a surprise for anyone. It is not God’s desire that you be surprised after you die. He tells us in the Bible that every one of us will live somewhere forever. To be prepared for life after death, we must first examine what we believe about this matter in the light of God’s Word.
