This captivating book presents hundreds of Bible passages pertaining to the Doctrine of Christian Salvation, simultaneously answering the many questions that puzzle those not specially trained in the field of soteriology (the study of the Doctrine of Salvation). Ultimately, the book emphasizes God’s free gift of salvation by grace through faith.
And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. Romans 11:6 (KJV)
God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. Ephesians 2:8-9
Once saved — always saved
It is heartbreaking that so many Christians are uncertain of their eternal destiny. This is caused by Christian leaders who erroneously teach that salvation is earned, and can be lost if the individual does not live up to certain standards. Rubbish! Faulty teaching causes countless Christians to live under the sword of Damocles (constant threat; imminent peril). Salvation is an irrevocable gift! Once accepted, it is eternal because it is sealed by the Holy Spirit. The Bible says so. I emphasized important words or phrases in the following passages.
I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me, for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else. No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand. John 10:28-29
When people work, their wages are not a gift, but something they have earned. But people are counted as righteous, not because of their work, but because of their faith in God who forgives sinners. Romans 4:4-5
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory. Ephesians 1:13-14 (ESV)
But people who aren’t spiritual can’t receive these truths from God’s Spirit. It all sounds foolish to them and they can’t understand it, for only those who are spiritual can understand what the Spirit means. 1 Corinthians 2:14
Doubting is natural
Jesus Christ loves mankind so much that he saves us from eternal Hell when we have faith in his finished work on the Cross.
“There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12
Afraid you don’t have enough faith? Don’t worry about it. Jesus understands wavering faith. One of Jesus’ greatest apostles was a man named Peter (they were best friends). Peter was in a boat during a storm, when Jesus appeared on the water out of nowhere. Jesus summoned Peter to get out of the boat and come to him.
Enthusiastically, Peter stepped onto the water and miraculously commenced walking toward Jesus (how cool), but when realizing he was only buoyant by faith his conviction waivered and he began to sink. Jesus grabbed him and helped him back into the boat. It must have been hysterical.
Peter was a revering companion of Jesus, yet he lost his faith in the Creator when he focused on the high waves and the deep water.
All have doubts, but the more one fellowships with Jesus, the more his or her faith grows.
Then Jesus told him, “You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.” John 20:29
No need to be a scholar
Millions of people have picked up the Bible, looked through a few pages, and put it down because it appeared too challenging. God is not looking for Bible scholars to be a part of his Kingdom (not that there is anything wrong with being a scholar), but he loves folks of all ages who come to him as seeking babes.
But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.” Matthew 19:14
When Jesus saw what was happening, he was angry with his disciples. He said to them, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children. I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.” Mark 10:14-15
The Bible can be extremely challenging because it entangles thousands of years of history with an extreme number of topics. WILL GAYS GO TO HEAVEN? presents salvation information in a systematic form.
