Yesterday I attended a funeral where the preacher that held the funeral service absolutely mutilated the scriptures promising everybody eternal life if they just believe in Jesus. That was an example of how preaching of the Bible can deceive people.
It is not preaching of the scriptures that saves us and gives us eternal life, it is the preaching of the CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST that leads to eternal life, NOT the cross that Jesus bore and on which He died but the cross that we have to pick up and follow Jesus if we want eternal life. Jesus said:"If anyone wishes to come after Me he must deny himself, pick up his cross daily and come here, follow Me." That is the gospel that saves, following and OBEYING Jesus Christ leads to eternal life, NOT THE PREACHING OF THE BIBLE. You can preach anything from the Bible and go away feeling good without ever knowing Jesus Christ but YOU WILL END UP IN ETERNAL HELL if you do not deny yourself, pick up your cross and follow Jesus Christ.
It is not the preaching of the Bible or knowledge of the Bible that saves you, but denying yourself picking up your cross and following Jesus Christ, living in utter holiness, obeying Jesus Christ and following Him until the very end, that is what will save your soul.
May Jesus bless you.
WITNESS FOR JESUS!
