I'll tell you who says were saved by Grace.
Answer Ephesians Chapter 2 verse 8,9,10
For by grace are ye saved through faith;and that not of yourselves: it is the GIFT of God:
Not of WORKS, lest any man should boast.
For we are his workmanship, created in christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them .
See a Saved person works because they have been saved not in order to keep saved or to be saved.
This is what will send a person to hell rejecting the finished work of the lord Jesus Christ. Man is taught all his life to work for a nice house work for a car salvation is a free gift from God Jesus paid all our sin debt in full at the cross on calvery all we have to do is recieve him . You can't have Jesus and it not change your life! That's why we work.
I hear people quote the not suppose to judge verse that you quoted often . Why did the apostle paul say I speak as to wise men JUDGE YE what I say.
The bible also tells us to try the spirits how do you try them without judging them?
As for the master mason that says masons is not a religion I have the book remember they open with prayer and close with prayer and quote other passages of scripture so they hide behind the curtain of religion like all the other false doctrins!
I believe the KJ Bible is the literal Word of GOD for the english speaking people.
Romans Ch 3 verse 10
As it is written, their is none righteous, no not one:
Romans 3 verse 23,24
For all have sinned and comed short of the glory of God;
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.
Anyone can come to the Lord but God gives each person their own free will
Romans Ch 10 Verse 13
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
If you have read this and have never asked Jesus to come into your heart and save you then I say to you friend today is the day of salvation ...I've never had a friend like Jesus he has never let go of my hand .
Someone mentioned that I have to much idle time on my hands
Well I go to church every time the door is open unless I am sick I visit the buss rout every Sat. and we run the buss every sunday I also work every other sat of each month. When we have revivals I don't miss them either . For those who do know the bible I'm not counting on any of this to get into heaven . I just don't want to meet the saviour empty handed I could never do enough for him. God bless you all and have a great day.
