Saved by Grace
Updated: Apr 16
Hello and thank you for reading my Blog. This is my first foray into blogging so bear with me. There seems to be a lot of confusion out there about how to be saved and go to heaven. Every Religion and denomination seems to have a different answer. The truth is the true gospel of grace seems to be very hard to find in this world. Satan does not want a single soul to enter heaven and he has created a gauntlet of distractions and untruths to keep people from learning the truth about Jesus. Mathew Chapter 7 says:
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
The straight gate that Jesus is referring to, is him. Jesus is the only way into heaven. Believing in his death, burial, and resurrection is how people get into heaven. There is no other possible way in. The broad way that Jesus is referring to is every other way man has come up with to get people to heaven. The usual suspects are saved by good works, or pre-destined (Calvinism), or baptism, the list goes on and on. Here is clear evidence stated by the apostle Paul, where he clearly gives the Gospel or the good news. By which all people are saved.
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:
There you have it, the clear cut truth of salvation, and what I feel may be the most important verses in the bible. Here are some other scriptures to back it up.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
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.
