Miscellanies 1 - Salvation through faith

Faith alone is the condition for salvation and even that faith in which a man may possess is yet a gift from his saviour. You may by hearty prayers and hard work seek your salvation but until you unclench your fist and beat your chest and lift thine eyes to the heavens to declare your wretchedness and then with all manner of simplicity look with the eyes of faith to the cross, you will forever be in search for your salvation and your works will only bring you to the terror of hell. I beseech men with great fervency to leave the mountain of works and to come by the plains of grace where it is a free merry ground of easy delight. Salvation is by faith in Christ and herein alone is the remedy from eternal damnation. Forsake your works for God has not promised to grant salvation by them except through faith. To those who believe in His name, He gave them the right to become children of God.

  1. Amen bro. Let not false teachings lead us away from the truth: the truth that salvation is by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and nothing else.


Her beauty shines

Her beauty shines, A monolith among the rest. I wish to forgo But when holiness fills my soul, I am drawn to her, The forbidden pasture...
