Notes from our Preacher

Home    Announcements

There are different views of how one obtains salvation. Even in Christian religions there are many different ways taught on how to obtain salvation. But my view on salvation doesn't come from man, nor any other doctrine. It comes from Jesus Christ himself.  Hebrews 5:8-9 Though he were a son, yet learned he obedience form the things he suffered, and being made perfect He became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey Him. These two verses of scripture tell us that Jesus is the author of salvation, in other words He wroth the book on it.  Therefore He should know more about salvation, and how to obtain it than anyone else, being He wrote the book on it.  So when I find in Mark 15:15-16 Jesus saying "Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature, he that beleiveth and is baptized shall be saved, he that believeth not shall be damned."  I see in these two verses of scripture four things we should get from reading these verses of scripture. 1: He told them where to go: Into all the world.   2: He told them what to preach:  The Gospel   3: He told them what the outcome would be for those hearing and believing the gospel and being baptized: They shall be saved.   4: he told them If you hear the gospel and don't believe it:  You shall be damned

Now that's what Jesus said, the author and finisher of our faith, in other words the one who wrote the book on it.

So you may ask why I would believe what Jesus said before I would believe someone like Joel Olsten, or Billy Graham, or Pat Robertson. Because I have found them to be False Teachers. I have listened to them and they do not preach the gospel in it's pure and un-adulterated form. They change it to agree with their addenda.

Another reason I will believe Jesus over any of these modern TV Evangelist is found in John 12:48  again Jesus doing the talking says "He that rejecteth me and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him, the word that I have spoken the same shall judge him in the last day"   Rejecting Jesus would be not doing what He said for us to do, And Mark 15:15-16 is pretty plain, and so is John 12:48

When these TV evangelist tell you to just ask Jesus to come into your heart and save you, take control of your life, and you will live for him. This is false doctrine. you cannot find anything even remotely like this in the bible. If you want to be a Christian, a New Testament Christian, the Bible will tell you how. I can assure you that none of these TV Evangelist will tell you what the bible says.  They may tell you to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. The bible does say that, but continue reading where it says it Acts 16:31  and you will find what the Philippian Jailer did when he had  Jesus Christ preached to him.  He was baptized, not only him but his whole household the same hour of the night.

If you have any questions about what you need to do to be saves, contact me or one of the elders at the Poplar Log Congregation. We would be happy to study with you and answer any questions you may have about salvation. And we will use scriptures to answer your questions, not what we think or feel.

This is a new year 2022 if you are not a Christian you need to make that commitment to yourself and to God to become one.  If you have been a Christian and you've gone back out onto the world, you need to make things right with God today.  Do it before it's too late.

We  would love to have you come join us at the services of the Poplar Log Congregation each and every Lords Day.
