Grace?

Are we saved by grace and that’s it? When people try to save my soul on the street. I’ll mention obeying The Ten Commandments, then they sternly try to convince me I’m saved by grace and not by works. The Bible says that but it’s taught out of text. Yes, we are saved by grace, no doubt. The wages of sin is death. We have all earned death with our sins. The grace comes in when you confess your sins to God and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. All your past sins are forgiven forever. This is the part no one teaches. You’re supposed to repent of your past sins. In church, no one ever gets to the basic truth of what that means. It means to stop sinning! I know, easier said than done. It’s a process as you seek and grow as a new believer to brake the habit of sinning. You are still going to sin, and when you die and are resurrected, you will be held accountable for the sins you have not repented of.

What is sin? Ask this question at your traditional Christian church and get many answers. There is only one. You must obey The Ten Commandments! That one hurts, so most just don’t teach it. The test Commandment is the 4th one. To most, it doesn’t make sense so they forget about it and never mention it. “Exodus 20:8 8 Remember (K)the sabbath day, to keep it holy. 9 (L)Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a sabbath of the LORD your God; in it (M)you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who [e]stays with you. 11 (N)For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day and made it holy.” Every time I ask at church why not the Sabbath, they use lots of long explanations and claim we don’t have to. Why would Jesus/The Word, write that with his own finger in stone and then try to convince you to forget about it? He didn’t, if you love God you will obey his commandments, not just nine, or eight, or two, but all ten! Prove it for yourself in your Bible.

Letters from Paul

About Paul

My journey started when my mom got sick. I got baptized and then baptized my mom while she was on her death bed. At church I gathered a lot of different information about Jesus and started to doubt what I heard. My Bible told a different story, it told the truth. I know where Mom is now and there's nothing anybody can say or do to convince me otherwise. I learned a lot of doctrines at church about Jesus, I learned the truth about Jesus in the Holy Bible.

  1. Repent is to re-turn to God. The 10 commandments have nothing to do with grace in terms of one’s personal salvation otherwise we would have no grace only works. This is contradictory to the concept of grace. Also, are you sure it is only our past sins that are forgiven or all of them?

    Calvin referred to the 10 Commandments as a measure stick to one’s walk with Jesus. With Jesus, one will love only God and Will Not…..

    Works must proceed from faith. Faith does not proceed from works. That is the error of “obeidence” in the current christian culture. It’s a form of idolotry which automatically confronts the 1st Commandment.

    • REVELATION 22:14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. KING JAMES VERSION

      • Jesus gives us 2 Commandments to follow: Love God. Love others. And then He gave a 3rd, love on another.

        Plain and simple my brother.

        Which is not to say easy.

        God Bless

      • Jesus gave us 10 commandments to follow, remember he wrote them with his own finger in stone. You are also right, the first 4 commandments teach you how to love God. The last 6 teach you how to love others.
