SALVATION AND RELIGION!

Good morning from NOSH POSH!

by BG O’Neal

The Bible is the story of God revealed from Genesis to Revelation. It’s ultimate theme is Salvation! The only mention of religion that’s pure and undefiled is found in the James 1:27. And religion is also mentioned in another scripture: “If someone believes they have a relationship with God but fails to guard his words then his heart is drifting away and his religion is shallow and empty.”
‭‭James (Jacob)‬ ‭1:26‬ ‭TPT‬‬.

“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” James 1:27 ESV. *You can’t leave out the latter part of this verse that says “unstained from the world.”

Please don’t choose to live life in the slum of sin! And, don’t treat God and His word, His story like it’s ho-hum! A former pastor called that sloppy agape. You can have your moral relativity, make up the rules as you go! You can even tear out scripture from the Bible. That is an option! However, it is still the Word of God!!!

To the sinner and wayward child: It might all seem like a mismash (a confused mess; hodgepodge; jumble) to you. This serving God thing! I have only one answer for you from a Christian point of view! “And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.” 1 John‬ ‭4:14‬ ‭KJV‬

“This Jesus is the stone which was despised and rejected by you, the builders, but which became the chief Cornerstone. And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among people by which we must be saved [for God has provided the world no alternative for salvation].” Acts‬ ‭4:11-12‬ ‭AMP.‬‬

Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.” 1 John 4:12-16 ESV.

Here is the remedy to go to heaven! It is found in the story of Nicodemus. “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3 KJV. Listen to the song, There Is A Remedy!

Born again believers, as followers of Christ and the Bible, they trust His words! “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6 ESV

Do you know Jesus as your Lord and Savior? Can you meet God on good terms? Do you feel lukewarm or unsure? Seek the Lord while he may be found! Call upon him while he is near! The Bible is God’s story of redemption! The message is still the same as it always was, Be Ye Ready!
