GET Salvation; or GO HOME!!
Lately - I've been ASTOUNDED at the number of folk who profess to be a Christian - and CERTAINLY aren't!! You need BE SURE!!
Go read Romans; chapter 6, BEFORE reading chapter 8.. For 6 gives the blueprint for life as a Christian! If you read & do not understand - go back to the beginning and read again; asking Holy Spirit for His precious assistance in helping you to UNDERSTAND what is required of someone to actually BE a Christian!! It starts with a slaying of the old man, dying to self - & LIVING for Jesus!! It's a DAILY THING!! The order is: SLAY ME; CLEANSE ME; FILL ME; GUIDE ME; USE ME! Most folks want to skip the most important first two!!!! Coming to Christ should mean you're ready to lose your life/will ~ and are ready for a life submitting to His will on and on a daily basis!!! You should know, WE humans WERE created for Him.. NOT vice-a-versa!! SOOOO MANNNY people are deceived on a daily BASIS, "thinking" they are saved ~ yet, find out OTHERWISE at death.. BOTH Paul & JESUS said that!! We'll take urmm, let's see, well -
we'll use Luke 14:26-
26 “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple. 27 Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after Me cannot be my disciple. : For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, 28 saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’ 29 Or what king, going out to encounter another king in war, will not sit down first and deliberate whether he is able with ten thousand to meet him who comes against him with twenty thousand? 30 And if not, while the other is yet a great way off, he sends a delegation and asks for terms of peace. = So therefore, any one of you who does not renounce all that he has cannot be my disciple.
John isn't simply saying, 'DON'T BE DECEIVED LITTLE CHILDREN,' simply say that phrase over, & over, & overrrr, (neither did Paul), just because they needed a line to fill up paper space. However - when you come to Jesus?? CALMLY SERIOUSLY & HEARTFELTLY consider it!! The rewards faaar outweigh the worldly life of a non-believer!! So many ((MORE than NOT, unfortunately)) have a FALSE SALVATION.. In part - because they do not EVER pick a Bible up and READ the instructions!! AS a BELIEVER - IT'S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY!! LEARN/EDUCATE yourself on God's ways!! BE CONSTANT in READING JESUS' COMMANDMENTS!!
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee!! ~ Hosea 4:6 KJV
It's the Lord's way; not yours! 😐
If you're going around smack dab in this "black lives matter," NON-sense - ***WARNING! YOU'RE NOT AS SAVED AS YOU THINK YOU ARE!! That movement/statement - is offensive to many!! I've heard the argument; and it is ridiculous and 'whinnney.'
No - God is not in ANY of that!!!
