When we analyse the decaying civilisation we now live in, it is easy to spot the symptoms. Foreigners are flooding our lands, sodomites publicly parade their perversion in front of children, our supposed public “representatives” only represent jews and the money they provide, and much more. The degeneration is obvious to anyone who takes an honest look.
However, these symptoms are a result of something that is not immediately apparent, especially given what the true cause is. We can easily blame the jew, or the sodomites, or liberals or whomever, but in reality it is our fault. We abandoned the Lord and he is punishing us, the choice we have now is to return to Christ or perish.
Unfortunately it actually isn’t that simple because we in the West cannot agree on who Christ even is. Catholics tell us to worship an image they think is him andsomeone they pretend was his mother, and claim that only their church provides salvation. Most Protestant denominations these days preach works salvation, and true Bible believing Christianity is a very small minority.
God knew this would happen, which is why he said in Matthew 7:
“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:
“Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” – Matthew 7: 13-14
Later in the same Chapter Jesus warns people who think their works will get them into heaven that they are wrong:
“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
“And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” – Matthew 7: 22-24
Not surprisingly, the people Jesus is warning here will often take this scripture and flip it on its head. They will claim it actually backs up a works salvation, which is beyond foolish given what he actually said. No saved Bible believing Christian would ever say “look at the works we’ve done” expecting it to get them into heaven. Salvation is through faith alone (as I will show shortly), yet Jesus knew right away that liars would spread a false Gospel after his work here was finished.
(Note also: he said “I will profess unto them, I never knew you” and not that he used to know them.)
There have been false teachers and liars spreading heresy from the very early days of the New Covenant. These wicked individuals pretend to speak in Christ’s name while attacking his purpose and the Gospel itself.
”For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
“And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.” – 2 Corinthians 11: 13-14
“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.” – 2 Peter 2: 1
Jesus told us flat out while he walked the Earth that they were coming. He did this shortly before warning about those who would preach or believe a works salvation.
”Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” – Matthew 7: 15
The New Testament warns us very clearly about these people, so we should not be surprised that false prophets are still around today preaching another Gospel. God tells Christians to cast these people out and let them be accursed, yet they still exist and will so until his second coming.
In Christianity, there is no greater doctrine than the Gospel. How we get into heaven is the true cornerstone of the faith, preach it wrong and you not only condemn yourself to an eternity in hell, but others also. Nothing could possibly be more important than getting it right.
Ask yourself the questions: if you died today, do you know for sure you’d go to heaven? If so, what do you believe someone has to do in order to go there?
People calling themselves Christians will have all kinds of answers, ranging from “I’m not sure” to “Yes I will because I have saved 10 cats” (yes, this has happened).
Some will say you have to work for God, or follow Jesus, others will tell you to repent of your sins. Catholics will answer “only God can know” which, among many of their doctrines, directly contradicts clear scripture:
“These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.” – 1 John 5: 13
If only God knows, then this verse is a lie, therefore Catholics are calling God a liar (one instance of many), but this article is not about them. It is about taking a stand on the Word and the true Gospel of Christ.
The Bible, which is a collection of Holy Scriptures that are the Word of God (not a mere “book”), explains to us very clearly how we get into heaven. The following video lays it all out for you:
Here is a quick summary.
We are all sinners:
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” – Romans 3: 23
We all deserve hell:
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” – Revelation 21: 8
But since God loves us he sent his only Son to die for all our sins:
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” – Romans 5: 8
So that all who put their faith in him for salvation shall be saved:
“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.” – John 3: 16
Once you do that you are saved for eternity, nothing will ever lose you the love of Christ:
”And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.” – John 10: 28
Salvation is the gift of God, we cannot work for it, because a gift can only ever be free:
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast.” – Ephesians 2: 8-9
That’s it in a nutshell and there are dozens of verses that say the same thing. The Bible is absolutely, completely, crystal clear on how we obtain eternal life; that is through trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ, and only through trusting in him.
There is no other way anyone can get into heaven. You cannot work for it, you cannot “live like Jesus”, you cannot beg him (“please forgive me for the sins I did this week” is begging), you cannot claim you are following him, and repenting of your sins will not cut it, you can only get in if you have the faith to put your whole trust in the Son of God.
Moreover, it is literally impossible to live a life free from sin and everyone, even Christians, sin without realising it, every single day.
”Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.” – Romans 3: 28
“I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.” – Galatians 2: 21
God is so good, and so perfect, that it is impossible for us as humans to live a life truly worthy of him. This is the whole point of Christ’s sacrifice and why it truly shows us God’s love. This is also why all who would deny this true Gospel, or even worse, preach another, are truly accursed. They show that they do not love God, especially not his Son, nor do they love their fellow man. As such, God says:
“If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.” – 1 Corinthians 16: 22
Christians are commanded to preach hard against false prophets, and cast damnable heretics out of their churches. Scripture could not be any more clear on this issue, which is why Satan came up with the idea of “cHuRcH tRaDiTiOnS”. He lied and claimed that Jesus gave these to the Apostles, who taught them but just never happened to write them down. Highly convenient given “cHuRcH tRaDiTiOn” says you can only be saved in the church, “so you had better give us your soul and your money”.
The fact that many of these so called “cHuRcH tRaDiTiOnS” flat out contradict the clear writings of the Apostles is apparently irrelevant.
For this, the excuse is usually something like, “yeah, well, you’re just not reading the scriptures right” or “that’s just your interpretation!”
Sometimes it is a hilariously pompous dismissal along the lines of “you’re just not intellectual enough to understand hermeneutics or the exogeny of Biblical liturgy”.
(Strange given 2 Corinthians 11: 3, in a chapter about false prophets, tells us that the Gospel is simple and warns of those who would corrupt us from this simplicity.)
Yet when it comes to the Gospel, no saved Bible believing Christian would ever say anything like this. What we would say is “that’s not what the Bible says” then we would go to the scriptures to prove it. There may be disagreement between brethren on certain doctrines, but never on the Gospel itself (or other big ones like the Trinity).
Consider the nature of writing as opposed to oral traditions, one gives us a message that cannot change without obvious manipulation, the other not so much. People today might believe that their traditions haven’t changed for a thousand years, but they have literally no way of proving it unless they were written down or documented somehow.
The game Chinese whispers gives us the perfect illustration. You can go through merely a handful of people and get a completely different message than the original. Writing, on the other hand, can be permanent if it is preserved as the Bible has been (and God promised it would). Why would God use “mUh TrAdItIoN” knowing how easy it is to corrupt when he could simply write down what he wanted us to know?
In fact, God tells us clearly that all we need are the scriptures. In his pastoral epistle to Timothy, Paul makes this abundantly clear:
”But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
”And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
“That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” – 2 Timothy 3: 15-17
So scripture is given to us by God, makes us wise, gets us saved (through faith not works), so that we can be perfect (meaning complete) and do all good works.
Now, if scripture comes from God, gets you saved, makes you wise, and can make you perfect unto all good works, what else could a Christian possibly need?
Claiming that you need “tradition” or some “scholarly expert” to understand the Bible is utter nonsense and contradicts scripture itself. This is also exactly how modern jews interpret the Old Testament, making the Word of God of none effect through their own tradition.
All we need are the scriptures themselves and scripture makes this beyond clear, so clear that only a liar or an ignorant fool would claim otherwise.
The argument then becomes, “yeh, well, the King James Version has a whole bunch of errors! It’s not an accurate translation! You don’t get the true meaning unless you speak Greek!”
Here are two documentaries that blow these ridiculous arguments out of the water:
(Just FYI, Muslims say the exact same thing about Qur’an. Apparently you have to speak Arabic to get it, because the creator of the universe only speaks one language or something, lol.)
If you don’t have time to watch them I’ll give you the rundown: the King James Bible says exactly what the Greek New Testament and Hebrew Old Testament say. It is a perfect, meaning without error, translation, anyone who would say otherwise is either ignorant, or lying to push an agenda.
Which brings us back to the beginning.
If you want to know why our civilisation is going to die, the Bible makes the answer very clear. Since the first English translations in the 15th-century, we in the Anglosphere revered God’s word. We may have had some incorrect beliefs, and there were plenty of false prophets, but for the most part we gave it due respect. For this God blessed us and allowed us to conquer the world.
However, in the last 60 years we have flat out abandoned his word and now even reprobate sodomites are calling themselves pastors!
If we want to win this spiritual war there is only one option, turning back to the Lord our God. That does not mean we can turn to some bloke called Jesus and pretend that following him will save us. Nor does it mean confessing our sins to some dress wearing weirdo and pretending that a magic wafer turns into Jesus after we eat it.
It means turning back to the God of the Bible, it means turning to the scriptures, just as he commanded all Christians to do since Moses wrote them down:
“And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers:
“If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.” –Deuteronomy 30: 9-10
We follow the Lord with all our heart, we believe his word, we implement his law, or we perish.
We put our whole faith in Jesus Christ for our salvation or we go to hell.
There is only one Gospel, let any who would preach any other be accursed and burn in the hottest parts of hell for all eternity.
“As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” – Galatians 1: 9
