Your Attitude To Sin Determines Your Salvation/Perfection, Not Activities by davidinchrist(m): 6:47pm On May 02, 2020
Truly, followers of Jesus are not exactly perfect and can't be perfect on earth like Jesus till His second coming; however, we have been called to Repent of KNOWN SINS and PRESS UNTO PERFECTION in Jesus.

It's about time we stopped believing that doing good: going to church regularly (as a member/worker/pastor, etc), paying tithes and offerings, helping people or being nice, planting churches and other good works are signs of being born-again or saved. We can't possibly bribe our way into God's kingdom by doing Good Works which are as good as Filthy Rags in God's sight.

Jesus said A Person must be Born Again to enter God's kingdom.

Now, to be born again means to TURN AWAY FROM SINS AND WORLDLINESS (starting from conscious areas, then later to unconscious areas of sins: from the known to the unknown sins). Hebrew chap. 6, Roman chap 7 & 8

Unfortunately, most Evangelists, Pastors, and Churches in general only end up making "Branded Church-Members," NOT necessarily Converted members (disciples), but people of like-minded that would faithfully pay their FIRST FRUITS, TITHES AND OFFERINGS, ETC. That prompts the question on whether they themselves are saved or NOT: the chances are that they ARE NOT, OR ONCE WERE, BUT NOW "FALLEN AWAY".

Are you truly SAVED?

Are you judging yourself; Repenting and PRESSING ONTO PERFECTION?

OR you're still a victim of Money seeking: Corrupt and Greedy Preachers?

It's TIME to Repent of Empty Church Religion that does not lead to HOLINESS (obedience to Jesus according to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John).

1 John 2:6 NLT
Those who say they live in God should LIVE their lives as Jesus DID.


Luke 5:32 KJV
I came not to CALL the righteous, but Sinners to Repentance.

Hebrews 6:1 KJV
... let us GO on unto PERFECTION; ...

Hebrews 12:14 KJV
Follow peace with all men , and HOLINESS, without which no man shall SEE the Lord:

John 5:14 NLT
14 But afterward Jesus found him in the Temple and TOLD him, “Now you are WELL; SO STOP SINNING, or something even WORSE may happen to you.”

Matthew 24:24 NLT
24 For FALSE messiahs and FALSE PROPHETS will rise up and PERFORM GREAT SIGNS AND WONDERS so as to Deceive, if possible, EVEN God’s Chosen Ones.


May Jesus Bless You.

Love one another, that's all God wants. Proclaiming Born Again doesn't change anything. Being humane is everything!

Sure it's ones attitude to sin that brings salvation/condemnation.


Going to church and attending all church activities/services don't count.

Churches these days don't preach salvation any longer, they preach prosperity and reserve the front seats for those who have successfully acquired the material things of this earth.

Churches rather use tithes to buy, fuel and maintain private jets, some even use the jets to launder money and smuggle weapons of mass destruction across the earth.

The church is in us (the individual).
Gather your immediate family, read the bible, praise and pray to God together - that is the congregation.

Ask God for forgiveness, no other creature can ask for forgiveness on your behalf. That is salvation.

That shows you how majority who ever lived on earth will suffer eternal damnation.

Only few will be saved.

The one that is surprising is that many who attend church fellowships or call themselves Christians today will in a few years from now will be part of the earlier group I mentioned.

All the things you listed here are fruit of been born again, in other words fruits of the recreated spirit
You see, except you seared your conscience those things you listed are effortlessly achieved provided you keep feeding on the Word of God

Now to the things you tagged "Bribing God" with good works, have you not read in Philippians 2:12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.

Yes, been saved is of the grace of God but enjoying to the fullest the fruits of our salvation demands works and obedience

Good morning my christian brothers and sisters. Please I need answers to the following questions.
my questions would be taken from the book of Genesis.

Genesis. 3:14 So the Lord God said to the serpent:
"Because you have done this,
You are cursed more than all cattle,
And more than every beast of the field;
On your belly you shall go,
And you shall eat dust
All the days of your life".


Questions:
1. Snake feed on rodents and not dust. Why?
2. Earthworm go on belly. Why? Because earthworm never offended God.
3. If it was Satan who passed through a snake to deceived Eve, why is snake punished to go on belly and eat dust instead of Satan?

This my generation is funny.
If you want to preach please go ahead, pointing fingers in whatever direction is not healthy because in all fairness everyone had their race and judgement to receive differently. Remember judgement will be as each person's work is.

Also I need to add that all the good works you mentioned above are good provided the reason behind them is a good one. You cannot be saved by not loving the things of God. You can't love anything by not visiting or giving.

We focus so much on the few fakes that the bible already said will come instead of trying to wrk harder so the world will see our good works. Remember anything fake destroys the credibility of the original.

Happy Sunday

We play church a lot. This is the trouble in Christianity. Most Christians get easily annoyed, short tempered and hardly tolerate insults from people, just toddlers. Others follow a streamlined doctrine. All this are dreaded impediments to the growth of a believer. Most come out and say they have been saved for more than 35yrs yet no maturity in them and I ask: if your 35 yr old son still tug at your breast looking for milk, won't you be scared to death? This is how God look at us sometimes when we are busy playing church and neglecting our spiritual growth ending up stunted.

Yes absolutely! I believe , a revival that will sweep across countries of the world is coming, to reposition the church and to lead so many people who are unsaved to CHRIST, in preparation for the Coming of our Lord Jesus christ. It is hightime we stop deceiving our selves as as to elude God's judgement..

I rather have MORALITY AND HUMANITY than what's up there.. Ever wonder why d world is so evil, how someone can commit so much evil and immediately beg for forgiveness, immediately rub someone/exploit and go pay tithe and still pray for forgiveness..
Y'all should start preaching humanity, love and morality before heaven pls..

What WE DO HERE MATTERS A LOT, SO MUCH FOCUS UP THERE WE LOSE OURSELVES DOWN HERE WITH THE DECEITFUL FACT THAT " GRACE WILL ABIDE N FORGIVENESS ".. FVCK THAT, DO GOOD AND SEE EVERYONE AS YOUR FAMILY.

By your faith in Christ you are either justified or condemned. Romans 10:9 ... that if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you shall be saved.

Salvation is that easy. You don't have to pay, cos Jesus paid it all on the cross.

unfortunately majority of so-called Christians are just churchgoers.

they feel loyalty to their daddy GO is enough to be saved or their daddy GO will help them bribe God with their tithe and offerings.


some don't even know how to locate verses and chapters of the Bible.
