A Discussion About Salvation

Salvation (1/3) – Grace VS Works

Salvation is very simple. There is nothing you can do earn it or work for it, it is a free gift of God. The natural result of receiving this gift is having a love relationship with the Father. When we truly love God, He takes care of us. We don’t earn salvation by obedience; rather, we are obedient because we love Him. Obedience is the fruit of real love. Salvation is a gift He gives us that we don’t deserve, then our natural response is to want to draw near to Him, and to quit offending Him. Just like any child knows their father loves them and wouldn’t allow them to be lost, we should know (if we love our Father) that He will never let us be lost either. True love is bulletproof. It is so simple, even a child can understand it.

Salvation (2/3) – The Sinner’s Prayer is NOT a Magic Formula!

More Christian clichés corrected… many look at the “sinner’s prayer” is a magic formula that when simply spoken aloud guarantees salvation. Many fail to realize that the sinner’s prayer is only a basic summarized communication of a much larger truth. An actual relationship with God is prerequisite for salvation and clichés like the “sinners prayer” miss some crucial points. Love saves, NOT words.

Rex and Dante’ also discuss the commonly used cliché “Surrender to Jesus” and what it really means in one’s life. If you think about it, we don’t get to take our toys with us when we die, so exploration of the greater meanings in life is the most important thing we can do with our time.

Can You Loose Your Salvation?

 Rex doesn’t answer that question in this vid but actually I would. The answer would be: Eternal salvation by grace means once saved, always saved! “He that believeth on the Son hath Everlasting Life.” (John 3:36)–Right now!–No if’s, and’s or but’s about it!–You already have it. You don’t have to worry if you are going to have it, or you are going to fall from grace, or you are going to manage to stay saved, or you are going to manage to keep true and then finally be given the reward of Salvation for your faithfulness. Salvation is not a reward! It’s not pay, it’s not wages! It is a gift that you don’t earn by faithfulness or by any kind of works of your own. and that’s all there is to that–nothing else, no other way, no righteousness of your own, none of your own good works!–None of these can keep you saved any more than they can save you in the first place! Only Jesus can do it!–“The gift of God is Eternal Life through Jesus Christ, His Son.” (Rom.6:23)

A work’s Salvation is no Salvation at all!–You cannot be good enough! No matter how many good deeds you do, they won’t save you!–“For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God!” (Eph.2:8,9)–It’s impossible to save yourself! You have Eternal Life which is the gift of God, and you cannot lose it, for He will keep you! You are His child!–You’re the Lord’s forever!

  1. Great article and videos. I have had a number of false prophets try and tell me you need to get water baptized or do other forms of works to achieve salvation. God’s word clearly states salvation is by faith as this article and the videos accurately communicate. The modern day Pharisee’s will try and promote a works based salvation as this is a way to control and manipulate you. It should also be noted that the Roman Catholic Church preaches works based salvation as well. In order to achieve salvation in the Roman Catholic Church you need to perform rituals prescribed to you by a Priest in order to be forgiven of your sins. I am a former Roman Catholic and I thank God I have made an exodus from that false religious system. This is another brilliant article and the accompanying videos are very helpful also. I hope more people read this article as the truth needs to get out there.

      Yeah, everything you said is true, the Catholic Church try to get you on a works trip. The picture you get with all of these religions is largely that water baptism and works go hand in glove together. They get you to be baptised in their church in front of loads of people so that you officially become a member of their church through the water baptism, after that you have to comply with certain things in order to stay in the church. Somewhere down the road in all of this, there would be money involved. You have to ask yourself before you join any church: are they making merchandise of the souls of men? Often the only way out of these churches is to lose face and choose salvation by Grace!

  2. Thanks for your response Terry and great hearing from you again. I wasted a lot of my life in false works based fellowship; it’s disheartening to realize I was so deceived. I guess all you can do is pick up the pieces and try to move forward with your life.
