The Parable of the Sower and “Once Saved Always Saved”

I refer you to the Parable of the Sower found in Matthew 13:1-23. Jesus talks about seed (which is the Word of God – not that you would think so listening to TV evangelists – but I digress). This seed falls on four different types of ground – the wayside, the stony ground, the thorny ground and the good ground.

Its pretty clear that in the case of the wayside hearers, these people were never saved. The word never entered their heart, primarily because they did not understand it, Jesus says. The devil took it away.

Jesus offers Rest and Teaching

In Matthew 11 Jesus says, "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." (Matthew 11:28-30)

More on Salvation from the Teachings of Jesus

Of course there is a lot in the teaching of Jesus about the big subject of salvation, but I am especially concerned with the things Jesus taught regarding the CONDITIONS God lays down for those who are going to be ultimately saved. If a thousand men teach me that there is no reason to fear the loss of my salvation if I am spiritually lazy and religiously compromised, but Jesus tells me the opposite – then I would be wiser to take heed to what Jesus said, right? After all, HE is the One I will have to stand before, probably in less than 30 years from now at the latest.

How did Jesus Christ teach the Salvation Message?

Jesus Christ began to teach and preach the message of salvation in much the same way as John the Baptist before him. It says in Matthew 4:17

From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Black Holes and Hell

Black Holes and Hell: Surprising Similarities

I have long been struck by the striking similarities between those mysterious objects of our universe called black holes and the place the Bible calls hell. In fact, the more I think about it the more convinced I am that black holes are a sobering reminder from God to us of the terrible reality of hell. For everything that exists in this visible world in some way shows us something about the invisible spiritual world. as Romans chapter one shows us.

The Mystery of Unbelief


A great mystery troubled me for a long time: Why do some believe in Jesus and some do not? I say troubled because this is not simply a speculative question of curiosity or merely an intellectual item for discussion: There are consequences of the utmost severity for those who do not believe in Jesus. An eternity in the fires of hell (2 Ths. 1:9, Mark 9:47,48), or its equivalent, is not a trivial matter. When you think about this, then, it does trouble the heart, especially when you think of loved ones close to that heart.

Justification by Faith: What does it Mean?

Definition of Justification in the Bible

Justification means being declared righteous. It is a legal term used in the Bible to describe the act of God in which He declares that a person is not guilty. A person who is justified is therefore in a state of acceptance with God. Its very important to be in a state of acceptance with God.

Who Keeps you Saved? God, or you yourself, or …

Who is responsible for keeping a person saved, who has been saved by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ?

Some say: "You are responsible to keep your salvation".

Others say: "God is responsible to keep you saved. He has promised to do so, and will do it."

I believe the Bible teaches that both God AND you together must take action to keep you saved. It is NOT an either/or proposition.

Can we keep ourselves saved from sin without the help of the Holy Spirit? No, not even for one hour. We can only stand in any sense with God's help.
