You May Think That I Am Unloving

Man is a sinful creature. All children born into the world, whatever their name or nation is are corrupt, wicked, and defiled in the sight of God.  Human nature is so tainted and corrupt that, left to himself, no man could be save.   There is only one way in which a man or woman must be saved. It is only by our Lord Jesus Christ, through faith; never by our own works and righteousness.

One golden thread runs through the whole Bible no salvation except by faith in Jesus Christ. You may think that I am unloving, narrow-minded, bigoted, and so forth; so be it. But you cannot tell me that my doctrine is not that of the Word of God. That doctrine is, "Salvation in Christ to the very uttermost!" But without Christ, there is no salvation at all.  Let it be called intolerant and unloving. No salvation, no way to Heaven except through Jesus Christ!

[J. C. Ryle]

Acts 4:12  ... Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

John 14:6 ... Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

1 Thessalonians 5:9-10 ... For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,  Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.❤
