The Simplicity of Salvation

“For in grace, through faith, are you saved,
and this is not out of you;
it is God’s approach present,
not of works lest anyone should be boasting.”
(Ephesians 2:8-9)

I’ll have to begin this post with a little technical info on the Greek language.  Please bear with me; it’s so important to the point I’m going to make.

The majority of the New Testament is written in the Greek language.  Greek can be quite a complicated language and sometimes it is difficult to translate the full meaning of its text into the English language.  This is partly due to the fact that Greek verbs have different “tenses”, “voices”, and “moods” which give the verbs slightly different connotations.  If you’d like to be a serious student of the New Testament writings, gaining knowledge of these aspects of the Greek language is important.

Do You Believe God?

Loved this well stated quote from my friend, Dan Sheridan:
"Most people today believe other men rather than the Scriptures. Abraham believed God. Do you believe God? Or are you a follower of someone who is, or claims to be one of His servants? Most people never advance beyond the person they set up as their teacher. They are attracted to personalities, and NOT truth. They support people who make them feel good. They like entertainers rather than substance."
