is it true that we can get every thing we want in life?
Depends on what you want. If you want what He wants, then yes. However, this "life" is temporal and our focus as believers and followers of Christ should be on the eternal. To find out what "the eternal" is, read His Word. He who has ears to hear will hear, and eyes to see, will see.
Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit; for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. (1 Cor. 2:9-10)
God bless you on your journey for the Truth!
What CBG has said here is the truth. Many come to follow Jesus because everything will be a bed of Rose Petals but they soon depart because they concentrate on what this world has to offer instead of what Jesus promised. Our LORDpromised that we would be troubled for our decision to follow Him but the end makes it all worth the journey. When we have finished our journey on this earth there are just two ends for us to look for. The faithful follower of Jesus will spend Eternity in Heaven with the other Saints in the presence of God but those that have chosen any other direction will spend Eternity in the Lake of Fire and will suffer the unending death.
You have the decision to make and now is the time to make it. It is my understanding that Islam is a big influence in your region of the world and if you wish to be made an eternal fool, they will do that for you by giving you empty promises of Eternity filled with sexual bliss but it is the purpose of the true Christian to tell you the truth and to see you in Heaven, our home! If you will take the time to do the study you will find that true Christianity is built on the basis of God's chosen people, the Jews. Because of the failure of the Jew to do the work assigned them, God came to the Earth as Jesus, the Man God, and put a small group of the Jews on course and they went out to do as God had ordered them, to convert the Gentiles, you and I, to follow Him.
Mohammed came along about six hundred years later, perverted the message of God and began a false religion, Islam. When you read the Holy Bible you will find that God/Jesus teaches love. In the Quŕan, written 600 years later, there are 164 instances where the Muslim is commanded to murder the Christians and the Jews, it is a book filled with hate. My prayer is that you will see the truth of the Holy Bible and choose Jesus.
