More of your false teachings. Here is what God's word says;
Acts 20:21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.


Gospel: 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, For I delievered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
"...to make all men see"(Ephesians 3:9)

We don't change God's message -- His message changes us.

Yes that is the gospel but to have it applied to your life one must repent.
Acts 20:21 Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.
Isaiah 48:18,Oh that you had paid attention to my commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.

Question Of The Day

 Q. Can you explain what repentance means and how it plays into our salvation? Do we repent before, during, or after the moment of our salvation?

 A. First, let's clear up the confusion about the meaning of repentance. The Greek word translated "repent" in the Bible is "metanoeo". It means to change our mind about something. It's a combination of "meta" (after) and "noeo" (to perceive or understand). It's like saying, "I used to believe one way, but that was before I understood. Now that I understand I believe a different way. I have repented."

 Before we can be saved we have to change our mind (repent) about two things. One is to admit that we're sinners who would be hopelessly lost without a Savior, and the other is to believe that God sent His Son to pay the penalty due us for our sins so He could be our Savior. Therefore repentance comes before salvation, and that's why we say, "Repent and be saved."

 Some people have the mistaken belief that to repent means to change our behavior. But if that was the case the phrase "repent and be saved" would mean we'd all have to stop sinning before we could be saved. It doesn't make sense.

 Many believers do experience changes in their behavior after they're saved, But when that happens it's not called repentance, It's called the regeneration of the Holy Spirit.

 We're saved because of what we believe, not because of how we behave.
"...to make all men see"(Ephesians 3:9)

We don't change God's message -- His message changes us.

Religious Lie: "God only paid for sins until the next time you sin."
Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
