1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. 2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. - 1 John 5:1-2 (KJV)

Although it is easy to get born again (John 3:16), that is not all there is to being saved, as you must truly believe in your heart, and confess with your mouth, that Jesus is raised from the dead, and make Him your Lord (Romans 10:9-10).

This guy is dead wrong.

To be born again is to confess with your mouth and believe with your heart. Being born again is the condition not the means. This Pastor is teaching a very dangerous works-based view of salvation that the Roman Catholics teach. This exact teaching is greatly opposed by the Bible.

Hilarious. None of the invisible sky man worshippers can never agree on what the sky man looks like.

Your cynicism is understandable given all the religious confusion. This is exactly why God declares that people like you will hate Him because of all the religious zealots purporting to speak in His name without His authority.

Romans 2:24 As it is written: "God's name is blasphemed among the Gentiles because of you."

A paraphrase would read: "God's name is mocked among the unsaved men because of you religious zealots and your hypocrisy."

This was the Apostle Paul exposing the religious leaders of his day, the Pharisees, who typify Christianity today with all its religious rituals and hypocritical moral teachings that have nothing to do with God.

In other words, it's only hilarious because you don't understand it. But you don't understand it because religious zealots hardly understand it either. This is why you have devotionals like this one that seem to speak about salvation when in reality this type of fraudulent religious teaching is only robbing men of salvation, implying that salvation is a matter of good deeds.

Try the Torah. Or maybe the Quran. Ah, so many "true" teachings it's hard to keep them all in line

In the bible.

Acts 17:11: Now these people were more open-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see whether these things were so.

Even Paul sets the precedent here that the scriptures are the examination tool we should use to measure all teaching against.

This devotional conflicts with Roman 10:13:

For "whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.''

Calling on the name of the Lord is the secret not only to our salvation but also to our enjoyment of the Lord's riches. Beginning with Enosh, the third generation of mankind, and continuing all the way down to the New Testament believers, God's chosen and redeemed ones enjoyed Christ's redemption and salvation and all His riches by means of this secret

To be saved here means to be brought into the enjoyment of the riches of the Lord. The Lord is rich to both Jews and Greeks. All who call on the Lord's name enjoy this rich Lord; as a result, they are filled with Him and express Him.

There are 2 types of salvation, positional and dispositional.

Positional salvation takes place when we receive God for the first time. We are "born anew" with the "divine life" and the "divine nature" (2pet 1:4).

Dispositional salvation takes our entire life where we continually receive Christ into our being through our spiritual eating of him.

John 6:57: As the living Father has sent Me and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me, he also shall live because of Me.

Once we are born (positional salvation) of God, we receive God's divine life and divine nature. Hence we are eternally qualified to be considered "sons of God". We cannot lose this positional salvation ever.

But once we are sons of God, we still need to grow in life that we may fully express our Father. This is a matter of our spiritual disposition. So while we may never lose our positional salvation, we may still be disciplined (spanked) as sons of God, depending on how we grow or don't grow in our dispositional salvation, whether we are faithful to live by God's life or not.

God called me to write my devotionals, and post them on the internet, anywhere I can - and Voat is one of the places that He led me to.

A voice spoke to you in your head telling you to do things?

You think that is healthy?

How does that work exactly when you are called by God? Is that just a feeling you get or is there a voice you hear?

Jesus Christ never existed.

The only written work around that said, "jesus" is a known forgery by Christian revisionists to stake their historically inaccurate and completely fabricated set of events.

If your god really walked the earth, like your shit bible says, then why did nobody speak his name, or write down a single thing he did for more than TWO HUNDRED YEARS?

would you believe a 200 year old rumour that calls it's own bluff? Yes, you would, because you are an idiot.
