Good News (Gospel) & Bad News (Sin)

The bad news is that sin entered the world when Adam and Eve fell into temptation by disobeying God, and because of that original sin, we are separated from God.

The good news that God sent His Son Jesus, to redeem us from our sins. Jesus was born, lived, was crucified, died, buried, and rose from the dead, in order to save us from God’s judgment. It is our free choice to accept the good news of the Gospel, or reject it.

We need to realize we live in a sinful world (just watch the news to understand) and that we are all sinners. We need to understand that without Jesus’ sacrificial death on the cross for us, our sins would not be forgiven, and we would be separated from God now and for eternity. ~ Bill Greguska

The Only Proper Response To The Gospel Is Simply To Believe It.

by Pastor Rick Gerhartz

Before we look at the wrong responses to the Gospel, let us call your attention to the only right response to the Gospel. One is saved by God’s grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone, based on His finished work alone.
In light of Christ’s death for our sins and bodily resurrection, the issue in salvation is not do, but done. The basis is not our walk, but Christ’s finished work. The means is not works but simply faith.
Let us not garble the Gospel, nor muddle the means to everlasting life by confusing the condition of salvation through telling people such erroneous conditions or wrong responses such as…
  • “asking Jesus into your heart”… as He comes when you believe the Gospel, not by asking Him in. (John 1:12; Galatians 4:6)

 

  • “giving your life to Christ”… as He does not want your “dead-in-trespasses and sins” life, but wants to give you a new life in Christ. (John 10:11; 2 Corinthians 5:17)

 

  • “making a commitment to Christ”… as salvation is not assured by your promise/pledge to Christ but on God’s promise/pledge to you. (1 John 2:25, 1 John 5:13)

 

  • “turning over the controls of your life to Christ”… as Romans 12:1 is an exhortation to believers (“brethren”), not to unbelievers.

 

  • “believing plus baptism”… as a believer’s baptism is to be done as a public testimony of one’s faith and identification with Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection as a result of being saved – not as a means to salvation. (1 Corinthians 1:17; Acts 8:36-38, Acts 18:8)

 

  • “believing and keeping the Ten Commandments”… as God never designed the Ten Commandments to be a way of salvation, but to show us our sin and need of the Saviour. (Romans 3:20, Romans 3:28; Gal. 2:16, Gal. 21, Gal. 3:10, Gal. 3:24-26)

 

  • “submitting to Christ’s mastery/lordship in your life”… as James 4:7-10 is clearly a passage for believers (James 1:2, James 1:16, James 1:19, James 2:1, James 3:1, James 3:10, James 3:12, James 4:1, James 4:11), not for unbelievers. And while there is no debate that Christ is Lord, the issue in salvation is… “BELIEVE on the LORD JESUS CHRIST, and thou shalt be saved.” (Acts 16:31)

 

  • “repenting of or confessing your sins”… as 1 John 1:9 is a condition for believers to have “fellowship” with God (1 John 1:3, 1 John 6, 1 John 7) as a child of God (1 John 2:1), not a means to be born again for the unsaved (John 1:12-13). And while one must see he is a sinner before a holy God in order to see his need of a Saviour, the solution is not confessing one’s sins to God. Instead, it is believing that Christ made full payment for your sins upon the cross (1 John 2:2, 1 John 4:9-10). Otherwise, how many sins must you repent of, how often, in what areas, and how perfectly in order to know you are saved? Confusing, isn’t it? One must repent (change their mind) about trusting Jesus Christ versus something else.

 

  • “praying the sinner’s prayer”… which is found nowhere in the Bible. Where do you find anyone in Scripture leading someone else in prayer to be saved? Nowhere!

 

  • “coming forward”… as the issue is not getting out of your seat, but coming to Christ by faith in Him alone. (John 6:35-40)
