    The Gospel That Justifies The Ungodly

    "Now to him that does no works, but believes on him that justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness" Romans 4:5.

    The Bible plainly teaches that Christians are justified (made right with God) by faith apart from the works of the law. The reason that Christians are justified by faith alone is because Christians are justified by Christ alone. Jesus is the Christians justifier.

    "To declare, I say, at this time HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS: that he might be just, AND THE JUSTIFIER OF HIM WHICH BELIEVES IN JESUS" Romans 3:26/

    The above should be the end of Calvinism, Catholicism, all religions. Jesus, not John Calvin or the Catholic church or whatever religion, cannot justify the ungodly. Jesus and Jesus alone justifies the ungodly. Some might say, "who then are the ungodly?".

    Paul makes it very clear who the ungodly are.

    "As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one" Romans 3:10. "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" Romans 3:23.

    All are born after Adam and have inherited Adam's fallen nature, Romans 5:12. We are born into sin, Psalm 51:5 and we die in sin. This is why our salvation is totally and completely outside of us and is found only in Jesus Christ and his Gospel.

    Jesus in our name and on our behalf fulfills God's Holy Law, Matthew 5:18. Jesus in our name and on our behalf atones for our sins and the sins of the whole world, 1 John 2:2. This is how Jesus justifies the ungodly. Jesus comes into the world to do for us that which we cannot do for ourselves because we are sinners, Hebrews 7:25.

    Because of the doing and the dying of Jesus we can now stand before God's Holy Court as justified. God can find no sin in the man that confesses with his mouth the Lord Jesus and believes in his heart that God has raised him from the dead, Romans 10:9.

    . The reason that Christians are justified by faith alone is because Christians are justified by Christ alone. Jesus is the Christians justifier.
    You teach that sinners Christ lived and died for, and rose again for, are still lost ! So you do lie when you say "Christians are justified by Christ alone"
    "... 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 cannot believe the Bible because you are void of the Holy Spirit.

    The Bible plainly teaches that our sins and the sins of the whole world have been atoned for, 1 John 2:2.

    So that now, "Whosoever that shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved" Romans 10:13.

    You say Christ died for people and they're lost.

    Yes, and you are one of them. You have rejected God's great free of salvation, Ephesians 2:8.

    I say what the Bible says. You are a fool to believe any thing other than the Bible, Romans 3:26.

    You are dishonest, not the scripture. You teach that sinners Christ lived and died for, are still lost !

    To believe that God condemns people to hell before they are born is to believe that God is an unjust, unmerciful, unrighteous sinner like yourself.

    By your own words you condemn yourself.

    You are dishonest and crafty to say:

    Christians are justified by Christ alone. Jesus is the Christians justifier.
    Then turn around and teach that sinners Christ lived and died for are lost ! Thats a blatant contradiction

    You're far better at 'condemning' homosexuals. You ought to stick with that. Your 'anger issues' are your best attribute.

    It is a serious thing to replace what God has said in the Bible and then replace it with what man has said.

    No I Don't.

    I don't follow any man conceived religion. I trust in Christ alone and the Bible alone.

    Yes you do! You teach sinners Christ died for are still lost on their way to hell. Thats far from any trust in Christ!
