we should not judge ourselves if we are saved by comparying ourselves to other fallible christains like ourselves-But to Only to the Infallible Word of GoD.....
Hearing and Doing the Word
Hearing and Doing the Word
19Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; 20for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. 21Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.
22But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. 24For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. 25But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.
26If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless. 27Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.

The altar calls I witnessed more people come forward to solve their problems
(And you hear crickets or if you are puerto rican like me you hear coquis when repentance turning away from your sinful life is proclaimed. )
People rather prefer a quick fix for their problems keep their sins. Than
Solving the main problem that may have created,nurtured and sustained those problems:their sinful nature
By embracing Christ. Who died for their sinful. Nature. And those problems
Offering. Them. A new life in him where those problems may or may not disappear
But now you Have Grace,hope to meet each day...
Which god is more appealing
Which God is more appealing?
1 .A god that forgives sin and changes lives like the ancient practice of indulgences. Of baptizing when you near death yet carry your heart embraced sins--- it stops there. And goes no further.......
2. A God of the bible which forgives sins which changes lives but. Starts and contuines . From and goes on from there to sanctification and finally glorification
demands repentance and a changed life yet a life that seeks to fight sin obey God....
Which gets the more amens... In today's church? Which. Will be more salt. See history after the Roman Empire made christainity the state religion. How the church became the more appealing....
Same today when we present or not present the gospel in its totality.....
Forming a bible study specifically for non christians is not necessary for where the gospel is taught and lived out by believers the Holy spirit uses its light in the darkness to draw them to Christ......
This quote came about when a leader want to form a bible study in the house then later backed out if it was formed without non christian in mind...
