God is the source of life, if we are separated from Him, then we are on a path towards death automatically. God desires that all people would accept salvation and live. Make no mistake about it though, the only way to salvation is through accepting God's identity revealed in the flesh, through Jesus Christ. God is always goodness, truth, love, and life and cannot be opposite. The belief which caused Adam and Eve to sin, was distrust in God's identity. God is always trustworthy to tell us the truth. By believing satan's lies, they had to deny the truth of God. God has made salvation possible in such a way that through trusting (having faith) in His identity revealed through Jesus Christ, we would have salvation. We simply believe that Jesus is God, ask Him to come into our hearts, and give us eternal salvation. God gives us His Holy Spirit, so that we are sealed with salvation and are filled with eternal life. God says whoever comes to Him, He will in no wise cast out. Jesus came not to condemn the world, but to save it. The world stood condemned without Him already. God says who belong to Him, would not be plucked or snatched from His hand. Once we receive salvation, we are sealed with the Holy Spirit. God takes us as we are. We are His work in progress, being built up in truth and love. For salvation is given by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and this is a free gift that was purchased by Jesus' sacrifice on the cross. It is not by our works that we are saved, lest any man should boast. The Bible says none is good, but God alone - and we all fall short of the glory of God. Even our most righteous acts are like filthy rags.
I highly recommend (if you have access to a Bible): reading the book of John, Romans, Galatians, and Ephesians.
www.biblos.com shows parallel versions of the Bible and also a Greek/Hebrew lexicon - so you can check what the words were being translated from. The most accurate English translation is the King James Version, even though most people don't want to read it because it is in Older English. Many people are not familiar with thous and shalls. Some translations, like the NIV, do have omissions and errors.....but you can check that out for yourself on the website. Sometimes you have to dig a little to get to the truth, but the truth may always be found.
