  • "Lord, Lord, Didn't We...?"

    "Not everyone that says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter the Kingdom of heaven" Matthew 7:21.

    One of Satan's greatest works is to lead people into believing that they are Christians when they are not. Instead of trusting in the work and the person of Christ, they are trusting in who they are and in what they have become, which is themselves.

    "Many will say to me in that day Lord, Lord, didn't we...? Matthew 7:21.

    Didn't we believe John Calvin?

    Didn't we join the Catholic church?

    Didn't we get baptized?

    Didn't we go to church every Sunday?

    Didn't we do many wonderful works?

    Didn't we keep the commandments?

    Didn't we? didn't we? didn't we?

    "And then I will profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me you that work iniquity". Matthew 7:23.

    Jesus never knew them because they never knew Jesus. They thought that it was all about them and their Christian life, works and piety. Christianity is not about us, who are the sinners, Christianity is about Jesus Christ, His life, His death, His resurrection, His position at the right hand of God. Christianity is about how Jesus has justified the ungodly, Romans 4:5 and has reconciled us and the world unto God, 2 Corinthians 5:18, 19.

    What is our position in all of this? We are the sinners that Jesus came into the world to save. "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us" Titus 3:5. We are the benefactors of the Gospel, not the instigators of the Gospel. Our part is to believe and to receive all that Jesus has done to save us. We had nothing, absolutely nothing to do with our salvation, but to believe it and receive it, John 1:12.

    In the judgment we should be saying, "Lord, Lord, didn't YOU do all that YOU could do to save me? And the answer will be, "Welcome in my good and faithful servant" Matthew 25:21.

    Like your self, you teach salvation by works, by what a person does, so discounting salvation by what Christ did.
    "... I have my own private opinion that there is no such a thing as
    preaching Christ and him crucified, unless you preach what now-a-days is
    called Calvinism. I have my own ideas, and those I always state boldly. It is
    a nickname to call it Calvinism; Calvinism is the gospel, and nothing else."

      You seem to believe that John Calvin is going to save you.

        Why do you keep lying ? He does not teach works but grace. I know you have nothing else to say but c'mon, it's really old

          You as all others like you who teach salvation by works deny Christ !

            he does teach salvation by works, and you defending him makes you just as guilty !

              How can you interpret Robert's reference as works. "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us" Titus 3:5.

                One of the works of the devil is to accuse Christians of sin.

                He has to do the work of his father, so he accuses me of teaching salvation by works.

                  Nonsense; it is stated clearly and repeatedly that works are a product of Faith. And not of our will but the will of GOD that has been imparted unto our hearts through Christ.

                      Teaching salvation by works like you do is a work of the devil!

                              Scripture teaches that false faith, or proclaimed faith with ones mouth that isn't backed by supporting action or works as a result is not real Faith.

                              What does it say about the man who has Faith and the man who has works from Faith? What does it say Faith without works is?

                              I humbly suggest you study your little book, and not follow the care fee doctrine of man.

                              Peace
