Question? Do you have a List of Beliefs, if you do, I would like to have one?
Answer: Thank you for asking, here it is.
Salvation: There is only one way a person can be saved, and that is by Believing that Jesus Christ went to the cross to Die, and shed his blood, was Buried, and Arose from the dead as the Complete Payment Alone for their sins. – 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Ephesians 2:8-9, John 3:16, Acts 16:31.
Eternal Security: The moment a person Trust Christ and his payment alone for their sins, they are saved forever. Ephesians 1:13, 4:30, John 10:28-29.
The Trinity: God is three persons in one. Each one is Co-Equal, yet individual. Genesis 1:26, Deuteronomy 6:4, John 1:1, 14, 10:30, 1 John 5:7.
The Bible: The Word of God consist of over 40 writers, covering approximately 1,500 years, YET, without error. 2 Peter 1:20-21.
Creation: God created this world in 6 days as recorded. Genesis 1:1 – 2:3.
The Gap Principle: There is a Gap period of undetermined time between Genesis 1:1 and Verse 2 it could be Millions, or even Billions of years between the Original creation of the earth in Genesis 1:1 and the Re-modeling of earth for Rehabilitation for Mankind and for the Animal kingdom in Genesis 1:3.
For further information… See my Q & A’s # 14, 218, 326, 629.
Young Earth Creation: I reject the False Teaching of the Young Earth Creationism based on the scriptural evidence that God DID NOT create the earth Without form and Void according to Isaiah 45:18. But instead it… Became that way because of Satan’s and all of the angels that followed him Disobedience and Rebellion against God. Isaiah 14:12-14, Ezekiel 28:13-15, Rev. 12:3,4
The Flood: Noah’s Flood was a Global flood that covered the entire earth. I reject the Local flood doctrine for there is no scriptural evidence that can be found to substantiate such a belief.
Noah’s Ark: the Ark that God had instructed Noah to build was a BARG, that was rectangular in shape. It is NOT a Boat or a Ship like structure UNLIKE the one that Ken Ham has on display in Grant County, Kentucky. Genesis 6:13-16, also see Q& A #216.
Bible Translations: The King James Version Bible is the MOST Superior version that is available in the English Language and by far THE BEST.
But, it is Not Perfect as the KJV ONLY people like to claim.
God Preserved his Written Word through the 5,000 plus Manuscripts that make up what is known as the Textus Receptus or The Received Text, not through a Single Translation as the KJV ONLY people believe.
There is a difference between Divine Inspiration (God telling and directing man in what is to be written or said – No Errors) and a Translation (Man making a copy or repeating of what has been written or said – possible errors).
For further Information… See My Q & A’s #13, 59, 166, & 393.
Spiritual Gifts: The Speaking In Tongues, Faith Healing, Visions, Casting out demons, Raising the dead etc. are NO LONGER in operation and not for today. When the Bible was completed in 96 AD the spiritual gifts ended. 1 Cor. 13:8-10. Also See Q & A # 18, 272
Amidst of the Corona virus (COVID – 19) Pandemic, I have not seen or heard of one preacher that claims to have the Gift of Healing (such as… Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland, etc.) offer to go the hospitals, Nursing Homes, or to the towns and cities like New York to heal all those that have fallen victim to this virus. If they have what they claim to have, then they are the MOST EVIL people on earth to withhold from the world a such amazing ability and gift.
Repentance: There is ALOT of confusion among christians as to what role repentance plays ESPECIALLY concerning the Gospel.
The word REPENTANCE when it comes to the gospel means A CHANGE OF MIND.
The moment that a person puts their faith alone in the Death, Burial, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ they have Repented (Changed their mind) from what they USE TO believe that took them to heaven, to God’s way of going to heaven, which is Faith alone in Christ alone.
To use the word Repent or Repentance when giving the Gospel will ony confuse the individal that you are witnessing to, and it will also put into their mind that they must do something in order to gain God’s gift of eternal life.
Predestination: God DOES NOT choose one person to go to heaven (given the faith to believe) and chooses another to go to hell (not given the faith to believe) is to say that God is a respecter of person, where the bible says different (Romans 2:11).
To teach this as some well known preachers do (John MacArthur) is to teach False Doctrine, and a False Gospel.
Predestination as far as God’s dealings with the Christian is concerned is to choose in advance in what they will do, Just like John the Baptist. Luke 1:5-17
The Rapture: I believe in a Pre -Tribulation Catching away where all christians dead and alive will taken up to meet Jesus Christ in the clouds. 1 Corinthians 15:51 – 57, 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17.
Hell: Hell was originally created for Satan and the Angels (demons) that followed him in rebellion against God. Matthew 25:41
But now is reserved for those that reject Christ and his gift of everlasting life as well. John 3:18, 36, 2 Thessalonians 1:8.
The 2 Judgement Seats: There are Two Judgement seats, One for the saved, One for the lost.
The saved will stand at the Judgement Seat of Christ to determine if they gain rewards or lose rewards based on their faithfulness and service for Christ here on earth. 2 Corinthians 5:10, 1 Corinthians 3:11-15.
The Lost will stand at the Great White Throne Judgement to determine the severity of their torment in the Lake of Fire. Matthew 10:15, 11:22. Revelation 20:11-15.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as YOUR savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved – Acts 16:31
The moment that you do YOU HAVE (at that second and forever) Everlasting Life which WILL NEVER be taken away no matter what.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
