Does “confess and believe” = salvation? (Rom. 10:9)

Does “confess and believe” = salvation? (Rom. 10:9)

Can we obtain the promise of salvation by the “confess and believe” doctrine? Have you ever heard it taught that all you need to do to obtain salvation is: 1) confess Jesus as Lord and, 2) to believe in the testimonies of Christ? These are two lofty ideas, but they need clarity. For demons also believe in Christ …and shudder (Jam 2:19). They will be confessing Him as Lord also, but it won’t do them any good. If your Christian…

Is it if or when we sin? (1John 2:1)

Is it if or when we sin? (1John 2:1)

Is it if or when we sin? What’s in a word? Often those professing Christianity will go along with what leaders teach, and that, without reading the Word of God for themselves. 1John 2:1 is such a case. Many teachers use this scripture to support their doctrine of continued sin in the life of the Christian. And, instead of admonishing their listeners to repent of their sins, and warning them of their grave danger of continuing in them, they inadvertently…

A license to sin?(1John 1:8)

A license to sin?(1John 1:8)

“We all have sin!” Is this belief a license to sin? Very few want to take the pains of actually describing the prevailing doctrine they choose to believe regarding 1John1:8. And even though they would not confess it, they do use it as a license to sin – or at least to justify their sin. Their belief concerning this much used scripture, when committed to confession, goes along these lines:“John says in verse 8 that all of us have perpetual…

Who should I believe?

Who should I believe?

 Who should I believe to teach the truth? Gullible birds will ignorantly swallow whatever they are fed. Many in church do the same. But with so many conflicting teachings of men, who should I believe?  If we discover truth we will have discovered the key that unlocks the chains that bind us. The responsibility of our souls lie with each one of us to discover truth and to be set free. Truth is readily available. The source in the Bible….

Grow Your Faith – 7 principles on how to build your faith

Grow Your Faith – 7 principles on how to build your faith

How do you grow your faith? Real, working faith in God is not magical or mystical. It is not something that God gives to certain persons and not to others. Otherwise this would make God a respecter of persons. But we obtain faith by volition – i.e. the free-willed choice of the individual, which corresponds directly with the effort one applies in obtaining it. Read on to see how to grow your faith. First things first You may have heard…

How can I break free from sin?

How can I break free from sin?

Break free from sin Living the happy life that we were designed to live has been thwarted by sin. Yet, to break free from sin of our own accord is like lifting ourselves high in the air by our own boot straps. It is an impossibility! And until we learn what the gospel has won for us, we will continue to cry out: “Oh wretched man that I am. Who will save me from the body of this death?”(Rom 7:24)…

Why should God get all the glory?

Why should God get all the glory?

Does the Sovereignty of God earn Him the right to all the glory?  If the devil reigned supremely, should he get all the glory? God is indeed supremely sovereign, but does His position alone warrant Him receiving all the glory? There is glory in everything. The sun, moon and stars have their glory (1Co 15:41). The heavenly and earthly have their own respective glory (1Co 15:40). There is the glory of man and woman (1Co 11:7). Everything has glory according…

Justification vs sanctification – what’s the difference?

Justification vs sanctification – what’s the difference?

Understanding Justification vs Sanctification It is imperative that we understand the concepts and difference of justification and sanctification. For both are required for our salvation. But does justification or sanctification come first? Or do we receive them both together? Does it matter? And, if justification saves us, do we need to be sanctified? Many say that justification is immediately received by faith, and sanctification is a life-long process culminating at or prior to our last breath. But is this true…
