I can tell how much a Christian walks with God by how much they care! When I befriend a Baptist pastor, kindly showing him THE TRUTH about the corrupt modern Bible versions, but he is indifferent and resents my help, I KNOW that something is wrong with him spiritually! The Bible says in our text verse that THE WICKED REGARDETH NOT TO KNOW IT! You can apply this vital Scriptural principle to everything that is right, honest, true and holy.
When I befriend a misled pastor, showing him THE TRUTH that False Repentance is not part of THE GOSPEL, then I KNOW that something is very wrong with him spiritually! I am so sick of this Lordship Salvation mess!!! I'm Sick Of This Lordship Salvation Mess! (MP3 by Pastor Jack Hyles; Also, Dr. Hyles refutes the Lordship Salvation lie!).
I know a Christian woman, who stood up during testimony time during a Sunday church service, at the Family Baptist Church on Guam. She shared her joy of leading three people to Jesus Christ that previous week at work. That fool (a wannabe pastor) corrected her, horribly saying, “We really don't know if they got saved until we watch their lives to see if they've changed!” That man is a theological ignoramus! The so-called “church” hasn't had a legitimate pastor in several years. Instead they have two bozos in charge, who refuse to let go of the control they have usurped over God's flock. If it were true, as that foolish preacher says, that we have to WATCH SOMEONE'S LIFE TO SEE IF THEY'VE CHANGED (to prove that they are really saved), then it would have been impossible for the apostle Luke to tell us that 3,000 souls were saved on the Day Of Pentecost. Acts 2:41, “Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.” The Scriptures plainly affirm that 3,000 souls were saved in JUST ONE DAY, and no one followed up to examine their lives, to see if they had changed!
The ONLY evidence of salvation (apart from faith in the Gospel) is the indwelling Holy Spirit, and that is something that only an individual person can know. 1st John 3:24, “And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.” Carefully notice that the Epistle of 1st John was not written so that Christians could become fruit-inspectors, to determine if other people are saved or not; but rather, so that we could examine our self, to determine if WE ARE SAVED.
