The other day I heard a preacher on YouTube say " salvation isn't some easy believism, 1,2,3 believe after me thing you do." These preachers will refer to this as greasy grace or free grace. They say it has no substance and it is worthless. I call such statements blasphemy. These men weather they will admit it or not, are adding to the the gospel. If you really narrow it down, it is works that they assign to the gospel. These are self righteous pharisees that believe their own righteousness will get them to heaven (good luck). They see themselves as holier than thou. Some of these people may not even be saved, some may even be Satan worshippers working undercover as preachers. Whatever the case may be, these people are preaching a false gospel. The true gospel is salvation through faith alone or sola fida. These false preachers say you must have an experience with God to be saved, there must be some kind of changed life. No where in the Bible does it say that. I do agree that a persons life will change because of salvation, but it may not be a change they want. For instance if a person gets saved at a young age, say, 7 or 8 years old, they are already pretty innocent and no big changes will really occur. As they get older maybe they get caught up with the cares of this world and fall into some serious sin. Eventually God will step in and destroy their life. This is not the kind of change these false teachers are talking about. They say you will get better and become more like Christ. This is damnable heresy. A 30 year old adult can get saved and not feel a thing. The true path to salvation is very easy. Believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins, and that's it. Believe that Jesus Christ was God in the flesh and that died, was buried, and rose from the dead, as payment for all the worlds sins past present and future.
30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
32 And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
I Corinthians 15
1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
Salvation has to be easy. We did nothing to inherit our sin nature and we do nothing to inherit eternal life (except believe). The bible calls Jesus Christ the last Adam. This is because Adam (the first Adam) plunged the world into sin by disobeying God in the garden of Eden and Christ pulled the world out of sin through his death, burial, and resurrection. If salvation was the slightest bit difficult we would split hell wide open. Anyone can simply believe, a tiny child, a quadriplegic, and a frail elderly person, anyone. The heretics will say, anyone can have a person relationship with God and let him get down into their soul. This may be so, but no where in the bible does it tell people they must do such thing, to inherit eternal life.
I Corinthians 6
9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
People will point to these verses and say, see the bible says that to inherit heaven you must be righteous. They will be referring to themselves. They will lean on verses like these to justify there works based salvation. They fail to mention the verse that follows, which states that salvation is only possible through faith in Jesus Christ and that all men are sinners in need of a savior.
I Corinthians 6
11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
People that criticize others for putting their faith in Christ alone are simply looking down on them, it comes from pride and arrogancy, either that or they are being led by the Devil. This sows discourse amongst the brethren, which is what the devil wants. Ultimately the devil wants to prevent people from getting to heaven, which is what these false preachers are doing. Anyone who believes their lies is damned.
The entire bible both Old and New Testament are about a redeemer who will take away the sins of the world. Do not let these false gospel preachers sway you. Pick up your bible and read for yourself. Ask God to reveal himself to you. Make sure you use a King James Bible, because the other ones are all garbage (I wrote an article about this). Get into Gods word and you will see the truth and the light. It is the only way. What a preacher told you to believe, will not hold up on judgement day.
I hope you enjoyed this article. If you are not a Christian, I invite you to get saved now. Tomorrow may be to late. To get saved all you have to do, is admit that you are a sinner and that Jesus Christ died for your sins. The only way to take away sins is with the pure shed blood of Jesus Christ. Good works can not take away sins. If they could, then Jesus Christ died in vain. Jesus died, was buried, and rose from the dead as payment for all sins. Once you believe that, you are saved forever. You did nothing to earn it and you can do nothing to lose it.
5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
