    Is It True

    Is It True That It is Hard to Get Saved?
    Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

    Who - Jesus speaking to Jews

    What - Eternal Life

    Where - Israel

    When - Age of Law

    Under the 'Law' it was indeed hard to be saved.

    The first sermon that was preached after Jesus was raised from the dead came in the book of Acts and it was given to those under 'Grace'.

    Who - Peter

    What - How to receive eternal life

    Where - In Jerusalem

    When - In the new Age of Grace

    Mat 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
    Mat 16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven

    Peter, will now open the gates of heaven, to who so ever will.
    Act 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
    Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost

    The gift of the Holy Ghost is eternal life.

    Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    If one would do as Peter was instructed by God, it is easy.

    The world seems to prove that true.

    "Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come" (Mt. 18:7).

    I don't think so.

    Romans 10:9-13 New International Version (NIV)
    9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”[a] 12 For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile—the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, 13 for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”[b]
    He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

    Jim Elliot

    The gospel of the grace of God was first given to Paul, therefore it was not preached in Act 1-8

    Are you saying that this kind of "first fruits" gift that Christ gave to Peter is still in effect today?

    This gift Christ gave to Peter bypassed "Faith". Are we to bypass Faith now?
