Faith NOT works will get you to Heaven.
In this week’s Bible study, Benjamin Knight covers scripture after scripture that proves salvation is by FAITH and not the deeds of the law.
Check it out below:
Lordship salvation is where someone teaches that there must be a commitment to Christ as Lord of one’s life in order to be saved. Recently there has been a modification of this position to say that willingness to be controlled by the Lord at the time of salvation is all that is required in addition to faith in order to be saved.
The message of faith only and the message of faith plus commitment of life can’t both be the gospel; therefore, one of them is a FALSE GOSPEL and comes under the curse of perverting the gospel or preaching another gospel.
Galatians 1:8, 9 says, “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you, than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that you have received, let him be accursed.”
If only committed people are saved people, then where is there room for carnal Christians? What kind of dedication must be preached to people, if in order to be saved, they have already dedicated their lives to the Lord? Where do you stop if you start adding something else to this which is the gospel revealed in the Bible?
Look at what God says about adding to the revelation of Jesus Christ (gospel), “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book (Revelation 22:18).”
The Bible plainly declares that we are saved by faith, and not by works. Where does it say this? Ephesians 2:8, 9 “For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.”
What are you trusting in to get you to heaven?
