Part 15 of 35Salvation and Discipleship [expander_maker more=”READ THE CHAPTER” less=”CLOSE”] WHITE THRONE AND JUDGEMENT SEAT There is good news for all believers in Christ. You won’t have to appear before Jesus at the final judgment. We know this because Jesus issued a pass when he said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who […]

CHAPTER 14 // WHITE THRONE ≠ JUDGMENT SEAT

Part 14 of 35Salvation and Discipleship [expander_maker more=”READ THE CHAPTER” less=”CLOSE”] ETERNAL LIFE AND ABIDING Anyone who believes in Jesus has everlasting life. That life is not given at some point in the distant future, but at the moment at which the person believes. Believing in Jesus is a one-time event that gives the born-again […]

Part 13 of 35Salvation and Discipleship [expander_maker more=”READ THE CHAPTER” less=”CLOSE”] BELIEVE AND ABIDE When I was six years old, my parents took my brothers and me to an amusement park for a special Christmas event called “Holiday in the Park.” My dad’s instructions were very basic, “stay with me.” He knew that if we […]

Part 12 of 35Salvation and Discipleship [expander_maker more=”READ THE CHAPTER” less=”CLOSE”] FAITH FOR ETERNAL LIFE AND DAILY LIFE I have a little shop behind my house where I keep my tools.

CHAPTER 9 // BELIEVE CHRIST ≠ LOVE CHRIST

Part 9 of 35Salvation and Discipleship [expander_maker more=”READ THE CHAPTER” less=”CLOSE”] A CHILD AND A FRIEND. I used to travel and play music with a worship band while I was in college.

Part 8 of 35Salvation and Discipleship [expander_maker more=”READ THE CHAPTER” less=”CLOSE”] BORN AGAIN AND GROW? I don’t remember the day I was born, but my mother tells me it was an event to remember. Once I was born, I could never go back. It was a done deal, a one-time event, an irreversible transaction. It […]

CHAPTER 7 // BORN AGAIN ≠ GROW

Part 7 of 35Salvation and Discipleship [expander_maker more=”READ THE CHAPTER” less=”CLOSE”] RELATIONSHIP AND FELLOWSHIP? In my youth, I attended countless evangelistic events. Often it was explained that I should strive to have a relationship with God. When the evangelist tried to explain how to have a relationship with God, the message would usually get muddled. […]

CHAPTER 6 // RELATIONSHIP ≠ FELLOWSHIP

Part 6 of 35Salvation and Discipleship [expander_maker more=”READ THE CHAPTER” less=”CLOSE”] GRACE AND WORKS? As a kid, one of the biggest choices was between orange juice and milk.

CHAPTER 5 // GRACE ≠ WORKS

Part 5 of 35Salvation and Discipleship [expander_maker more=”READ THE CHAPTER” less=”CLOSE”] FAITH AND WORKS? A few years ago I joined a ministry called 289 DESIGN.

CHAPTER 4 // FAITH ≠ WORKS

Part 4 of 35Salvation and Discipleship [expander_maker more=”READ THE CHAPTER” less=”CLOSE”] SAVIOR AND LORD? I have often heard people use the phrase, “Jesus is my Lord and Savior.” This is a legitimate way to express one’s relationship to Jesus. However, the phrase can be misleading if it’s not understood in context. I have heard more […]

Part 3 of 35Salvation and Discipleship [expander_maker more=”READ THE CHAPTER” less=”CLOSE”] WATER AND FOOD?

Salvation & Discipleship

Did you ask Jesus into your heart to be saved? Actually it’s a trick question. Many people are confused about the meaning of this simple phrase. It’s used often, but there are a few compelling reasons why we should stop using it. 

7 Reasons Not To Invite Jesus Into Your Heart To Be Saved

We got this question from a reader this week: Does John 14:12 prove that all believers must bear fruit? Notice what the verse says: Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these because I am going to […]

Will All Believers Have Fruit?

I have often heard people claim that Jesus’ parable of the sower proves that some can become unsaved after they first become believers. However, that is not the case. There are a few important things that we need to see from the parable. If you’d like to read it for yourself you can find it […]

The Parable Of The Sower

Rule # 1: Shut up! That’s right. Stick your balled-up fist in your face hole if you have to, but most importantly stop talking. And yes, I’m saying you should START by STOPPING the incessant blather. In most cases, everything you will say to them has already been said to them multiple times. We’re not […]

Beatitudes

Jesus was verified dead by Roman executioners. A second verification of him being deceased came when the body was taken down from the cross, and wrapped for burial. The tomb was sealed with a Roman seal, which would cost the breaker his life. The soldiers would be held accountable for letting the seal be broken, […]

The Resurrection

Each time I talk about the gospel, I get resistance from Christians who want to call foul. They quote verses from James, and 1st John trying to point out that we must have works to maintain our salvation. It worries me quite a bit that this is a common understanding of the gospel. How have […]
