I like the overall parallels in this presentation. I see the "motivation" a bit different for putting on Christ's righteousness (parachute) that my fear of God's wrath. The Bible says it is Christs love that "motivates" us. Fear of hell, or hope of heaven are not sufficient enough motives to give us victory over sin, but God's love as expressed through Calvary is. I don't fear God's wrath, because it was poured out on Calvary. Jesus tasted death for every man and took the punishment for our sins and the sins of the whole world. Those who do not use this period of probation on earth to accept the provisions of salvation disqualify themselves from Heaven because their character is not in harmony with the principles of God's kingdom. But I fear to cling to sin because God destroys it in the end. We need to be careful to not sound like this, "if you don't love God He will destroy you." Rather, we should say, by not responding to God's love, and choosing lawlessness, we will be destroyed or cut-off from eternal life because like a cancer sin needs to be destroyed. Sin is the thing we should fear, because it separates us from God.

Thank you Dianna, it just seems like I here a lot of testimony from people who've prayed and received Christ,and it was just done easy & seems like it is so much work for me I guess I'm trying to hard or not letting it just happen maybe I'm looking for a sign or something and I should just believe & trust go on, maybe I need to let go of the past,change what I need to change the people & things I need to change in my life and except & believe I'm forgiven & start learning how to live my life as a christian and grow & pray every day for guidance... Thank you & God bless !!!!!

Mark 16:16 New International Version (NIV) 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.

Don't try to connect FAITH with any kind of "feeling" you think you should have.......good feelings like joy & happiness are fabulous when you're experiencing Jesus in this way BUT the "feelings" are not what constitutes having FAITH. Remember Hebrews 11:1...FAITH is the ASSURANCE of things HOPED for, the CONVICTION of things NOT SEEN. <--- Some people think we Christians are a little nutty for BELIEVING the WORD but the Holy Spirit within me says...it doesn't matter what people think, it matters that you believe what God has told you in the WORD. Galatians 1:10 Do I seek the favor of men or God? Men will inevitably let you down, God will NEVER let you down. FACTS, FAITH, and FEELINGS last, in that order! Praying for you too Bill....we all have gone through similar doubts and asked similar questions as you do!

Salvation is like parachute; wind is like God's words.

This is a very WEAK parable; more better you stick to Jesus's parables ONLY.

salvation is to save your soul to the wrath of God...

for most of my Christian life, I also thot salvation was safe passage to the other side (the end game) but this is what scripture has to say John 3:15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. John 17:3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. Jesus came not for our future but for the present and the "parachute" was put on you and since you did not put it on, neither can you remove it.

Analogy is good but not sure if Challenging Gods creation with the "temple of the Holy Spirit" (skydiving)is a good way of describing how to rely on God for our life? Like smoking a cigarette but hoping it doesn't cause cancer because some people don't' die from smoking.

I hope you don't mind that I'm sharing this along with your words since you worded it so well. When people know the purpose - "His yoke is easy & His burden is light".
