My goal is not to offend anyone, but I’m really concerned about you. Time is running out. Christ’s return is drawing near and He is only coming back for those who have repented of their sins, who have confessed openly that Jesus is God and Savior, and actually believe it in their hearts. Our salvation is by God’s grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. Saying a “sinner’s prayer” and living for oneself is not a guarantee of salvation.
Many men calling themselves Christians have preached a false gospel of health and wealth, of signs and wonders, of supernatural experiences. They’ve falsely prophesied of God’s favor, and of coming revival. They downplay the sufficiency of God’s written Word, and elevate mystical visions and encounters. They have ignored the reality of sin, and the depths of our depravity.
The truth is that we are all wretched sinners who are helpless to free ourselves from our sin. We need a Savior. On Judgment Day we will either be measured by our righteousness (which will condemn us) or by the righteousness of Christ (which will save us).
The Good News is that for the glory of God the Father, Jesus Christ who is God the Son bore the wrath of the Father that we deserve. The Father tore apart and bled out the body of the Son so that we no longer need to be condemned.
Because the Son glorified the Father with His sacrifice on the cross, we now can be reconciled to God by His grace, through faith in Jesus alone. This gift of grace is offered to anyone who will believe and put his trust in the only God who can save.
Even those of us who truly believe still need the Gospel. Through this real faith in Jesus alone, He will transform us from living like and loving the things of the world, and to be devout followers of Him. We will start to despise our sin, and wrestle with obeying God. We may not immediately be free from the temptation of sin, but our desire to live righteously will grow.
One who truly professes a saving faith in Christ will seek out the fellowship of other Christians in a local church that is sound in teaching the Word of God.
It is only that I love and care for you that I’m willing to risk offending you so that the Holy Spirit might draw you to salvation. Please consider what I have written and humbly yield your entire life to Jesus. This Gospel will save you and transform you.
