Cookie a day: Repentance Leads To Salvation

76 And child, you will be called a prophet of the Most High, for you will go before the Lord to prepare His ways, 77 to give His people knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins.

Luke 1:76-77

A lot of preachers today preach a false gospel. They add sugar to it to make it sweet and palatable to the unsuspecting victim. That gospel is poisonous which is masked with sugar so you won’t taste the poison and die spiritually. If you do not preach about sin, the person cannot be convicted of it and be open to Jesus Christ. The false preacher tells you a false gospel that cannot save you and makes you think that you are going to heaven and you’re not. Jesus sent John to tell the people of Israel to repent and get right with God because unknown to the people God was coming in human form and without repentance you cannot open the door of your heart to Jesus.

  1. Our pastor ha been preaching through Romans for quite some time now. When he covered the first three chapters, he didn’t sugar coat it at all. He called sin for what it is: death. He did get some negative feedback from some, but he continued to preach the Gospel.

    1. You have a pastor that cares for his flocks and those who did not like his message was because they probably are listening at home to a sugar-coated message. Hopefully God will wake them up. Thanks for your story and adding to what I said.

  2. Hi Spaniard,

    If God is love and if love fills the law to the full, then sin is failure to love God with one’s whole being through failing to love others as ourselves. So isn’t it Fundamentalists through their god of wrath and judgment who preach erroneous concepts of sin, the ones preaching a false gospel?

    The gospel is the good news of the reign of the God of compassion, healing-mercy and loving-kindness, not the god of wrath and judgment. Jesus loved God with his whole being through loving others, but the wicked crucified him. Jesus, through his death and “resurrection” triumphed over the principalities and powers (evil in the social, political, economic and religious structures and in personal lives) The gospel is the triumph of grace over sin. It is the triumph of love over judgement. Mercy triumphs over judgment. This is why a gospel of wrath and judgement is plain wrong and is a false gospel.

    Have a great day! From a true disciple of Jesus.

    Shalom,

      Romans 1:18-19
      18 For God’s wrath is revealed from heaven against all godlessness and unrighteousness of people who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth, 19 since what can be known about God is evident among them,
      because God has shown it to them.

      Those like atheism and those who preach a different Jesus will receive the wrath which is the justice of God but if anyone repents and believes in the Jesus of holy scripture they will be saved. I invite you, John Arthur, today to believe in Jesus Christ of holy scripture so that you may have eternal life.

      John Arthur said-“The gospel is the triumph of grace over sin. It is the triumph of love over judgement. Mercy triumphs over judgment. This is why a gospel of wrath and judgement is plain wrong and is a false gospel.”

      You assumption is false, if a person repents and believes in Jesus Christ their sins will be forgiven but if they do not repent the wrath of God remains in them as seen in John 3:17-18 which says, 17 For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. 18 Anyone who believes in Him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned because he has not believed in the name of the One and Only Son of God.

  3. Hi Spaniard,

    God’s wrath is but for a season, his mercy endures forever. So the emphasis in the biblical witness to Jesus is not on wrath and judgment but on mercy. This is a major reason that Creative Love Theism is the best theology. It is a theology of love.

    Have a great day!

    From a true disciple of Jesus.

      1. Hi Spaniard,

        I have already put my trust in the compassionate Jesus of Nazareth, therefore I have not rejected the Word of God. Your confusion is a Fundamentalist one. The bible is NOT Jesus, but Fundamentalist equate the bible and Jesus and so preach a false gospel. Please repent before it is too late for you.

        Shalom,

      2. You are a liar and the truth is not in you, for you have rejected the Word of God by telling people to seek Buddha which goes against scripture (John 14:6) and you don’t believe that every word of scripture came from the mouth of God. For you are filled with darkness and hatred toward the truth and those who have the truth but I say to you, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ who has been revealed in holy scripture and you shall be saved.
