How Do We Get Right With God?

Many people think that getting Right with God requires following various Rituals or Religious Rules.

As a result of not following these Rituals or Rules, then we tend to think that it’s not possible for us to be Right with God.

Paul clarifies how easy it is to get Right with God in his Epistle to the Roman Church.

Romans 4:3 AMP, “For what does the Scripture say? Abraham believed in and trusted in God, and it was credited to his account as Righteousness, right living and right standing with God”

It is very important to understand Why Paul starts this description of How to Get Right with God by saying, “What does the Scripture say?”

This is to counter the argument up front by the Judaisers, that Paul was in some way deviating from Scripture by saying that Abraham was justified by Faith without observing the Religious Law.

Paul is emphasising that the Old Covenant Scriptures reveal that Abraham was justified by Faith, and Paul deliberately chooses Abraham as the focus point because Abraham was not under the Law.

Faith Vs Religious Legalism – Not Working – 3

To Religious Legalists the idea of being Justified by Faith is almost impossible to comprehend, because it directly contradicts everything they believe is vital to the foundation of their Religion.

If we can be made in Right Standing with God by Faith as a Free Gift of Grace, then the argument that we need to use Prayer Beads, or Pray several times per day facing a certain direction, or spend several hours in Transcendental Meditation, or recite the Latin Liturgy, or wave the Magic Wand three times, or offer incense to five different statues of Gods or Idols, all becomes totally ridiculous and pointless.

Obviously, this is the reason that the Reformation created a huge wave of Religious opposition and persecution from all forms of Ritualism.

Paul makes this abundantly clear in his Epistle to the Roman Church.

Romans 4:5 AMP, “But to One who NOT WORKING by the Law, Trusts and Believes fully in Him..”

This Scripture shatters every delusion peddled by the Seventh Day Adventist and Jehovah Witness Cults.

Our Trust and Faith in Jesus Christ does not come from Working by the Law, but from the Grace of God.

This immediately removes a huge burden of Guilt and Condemnation from the Believer.

No matter what you do, you cannot earn the Faith that Justifies you.

The Self Righteous counter argument to this is that offering the Free Gift of Grace is giving people an excuse to Sin.

The Self Righteous oppose Grace because they cannot comprehend that it is a Free Gift, since they believe they must earn enough points to buy a Ticket to the Stairway to Heaven or Nirvana or to achieve Reincarnation.

Should We Accept That Whatever Happens To Us Is Positive?

Currently some Psychologically distorted interpretations of Stoicism are causing the philosophy to go through a resurgence in popularity.

This is because these Psycho-Pop versions of Stoicism give people an excuse to Play the Doris Day Card, saying ‘Que Sera, sera, whatever will be, will be’.

It is interesting that the Psych-Pop pedlars are using Stoic quotes from Marcus Aurelius, to justify their Ostrich Card, head in the sand, approach to life.

We are told by these ‘Motivational Gurus’ that you should , ‘Accept whatever happens to you as a Positive for yourself and the Universe’.

The idea is that you will feel a lot less stressed if you don’t question what happens to you, but just accept it as the Positive will of the Universe.

What is concerning is that according to this theory, we are now being told to passively submit to the supposed Impersonal Universe, which is now controlling our destiny for the good, but only as long as we don’t question it.

Of course nobody really believes this, because if we did then we would regard all Sickness as a Positive for ourselves and the Universe, and would therefore not seek medical help.

By contrast Paul reveals the Christian position on this topic by stating in Romans 8:28 ESV, , “And we know that for those who Love God, All things work together for the good, for those who are called according to His purpose”.

Here Paul outlines the difference between the Christian Faith and Stoicism, by outlining the provisos for “All things work together for the good”.

Firstly , we must Love God.

Joseph Stalin would have thought that all things were working for his good when he murdered countless millions of innocent people in Soviet Russia, and because he hated God he had no regard for Stoic philosophy but rather was motivated by Scepticism.

Obviously, the people of Russia did not accept the purges as the Positive will of the Universe, because they were being ordered by a God hating psychopath.

Secondly, all things work together for the good for those who are called according to His purpose.

All Believers are called according to the purpose of Jesus Christ.

If we maintain our perspective and focus on fulfilling the Will of God for our lives, then anything that is negative that may happen to us can be overcome by Faith.

However, this does not mean that we should believe that Negative encounters are caused by God, or are somehow Positives created by God that we should just accept.

Paul in his New Covenant Epistles was very clear that we should resist evil, and not just passively accept it.

Much of the Politically Correct Psycho-Babble interpretations of Stoicism are aberrations from the original intentions of Socrates and Marcus Aurelius.

Do We Carry Our Fate With Us?

There are some people who quote the great Marcus Aurelius as if he was some kind of very passive fatalist.

Marcus Aurelius “Trust that all is for the best. For we carry our fate with us —- and it Carries Us.”

Does this mean that Marcus Aurelius was a passive fatalist?

Some Believers have been deceived into Surrendering to the idea that whatever happens in their lives must be the Will of God, because it was meant to be.

If Jesus had believed this delusion then he would not have Healed the Sick, rather he would have told them that their disease was the Will of God, and not to fight against it because God was using their intense suffering to teach them a lesson because they were a naughty Sinner.

It is very hypocritical for those who believe their Sickness is the Will of God, to try to get healed through medicine.

If Paul had believed the delusion that everything is fate, then why did he debate with and fight against the Religious Fatalists everywhere he went?

Marcus Aurelius was coming from the position of a Stoic philosopher, and in actuality believed the opposite of the philosophy of passive fatalism that many Believers have succumbed to.

Who Is Called To Be A Saint?

Unfortunately mainstream Legalist Tradition has made Sainthood an almost impossibly high standard for every Believer.

This deception has persuaded most Religious people to Believe that Saints are a very special and extremely rare type of person, who usually lives in a Monastery or a Cave.

Liturgical Tradition has then Canonised various deceased persons as Saints, which was very popular before the Reformation.

We are here in no way disparaging the character of these Canonised Saints, as many obviously were very devoted to God and there is no doubt that some performed miracles of healing.

However, Canonisation of Saints led to idolatry, with parishioners being encouraged to Pray to the Saint instead of directly to Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

To be officially Canonised as a Saint there is required 1-2 Miracles which has resulted from Prayers to that Saint.

This then leads to the assumption that only a very select number of people can be Canonised as a Saint.

Paul discusses the issue of Who is a Saint in his Epistle to the Roman Church, showing clearly that God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ designate who is a Saint.

Romans 1:7 “To you then, ALL God’s beloved ones in Rome, CALLED TO BE SAINTS, and designated for a consecrated life:”

Paul makes it extremely clear that All Believers in Rome are called to be Saints.

Does this mean that Paul is saying that every Believer in Rome is called to impossibly high levels of consecration, constantly reciting Prayers in Latin every day, practicing self flagellation to the point of creating serious wounds as a sign of penitence, begging in the streets to show humility, refusing to engage in any form of worldly activities including working, choosing chastity over the arduous tasks of marriage and raising a family, or walking around in Purple and Red Robes to show that they have special Religious Status?

Obviously Paul is taking the opposite approach where being a Saint is not something that we achieve by participating in the Spiritual Olympics, but it is something that has been freely given to us by the Grace of Jesus.

Romans 1:7 AMP, “Grace and Spiritual Blessing and Peace be yours from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.”

We don’t qualify to be a Saint, we are called to be Saints by the Grace of God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.

You don’t have to be an ‘Holier than thou’ Religious Hypocrite to be called to be a Saint.

If you are a Believer you are called to be a Saint, despite your imperfections and weaknesses, and this is not creating an excuse to stay in Sin, but rather showing the unconditional Love that God has for us.

Would you like to be called to be a Saint?

Faith Vs Ritualism

The Spiritual Warfare that Believers are involved in means that we have to “Fight the Good Fight of Faith”, in order to Win the Game of Life.

This comes as a shock to many Doris Day ‘Que Sera, Sera, whatever will be, will be, the futures not ours to see’, type of Believers.

This is why so many Passive Believers visit Fortune Tellers and Astrologists, to foretell their future fate.

If our future is already foretold by the Stars, then there is nothing that we can do but to accept it, so we think we need a Fortune Teller to uncover it, and thereby allow the Curse to enter our lives.

To Win in Spiritual Warfare requires a Fight, the GOOD FIGHT of Faith, that can and will alter any kind of Curses that our Spiritual Enemy has planned for your future.

The problem is our passivity, which is represented by our unwillingness to enter the Good Fight of Faith.

We should only be unwilling to enter a Fight if we know we are going to Lose, but it is called a Good Fight because we are destined to Win, because of the Blood of Jesus Christ shed at Calvary.

What can cause us to Lose the Game of Life?

If we start to Believe that we can Buy a Ticket to the Stairway to Heaven through any kind of Ritualism, or Legalism, or Prayer Beads, or Reciting a Latin Liturgy, or by Praying a Preset Religious Formula a certain number of times per day, then we have already Lost the Fight.

Paul addresses this in his debate with Religious Legalists in his Epistle to the Roman Church.

Romans 3:30 AMP Para, “Since it is One and the same God who will justify those following the Law (circumcised) by Faith, which germinated from Abraham, and those not following the Law (uncircumcised) through their newly acquired Faith. For it is the same trusting Faith in both cases, a firmly relying Faith in Jesus Christ.”

So we can see that it is our Faith that justifies us before God, and not our addictions to Ritualism or Spiritual Legalism.

Would you like to be Justified by Faith?

The Law Of The Conscience

Not many Believers realise that the Conscience acts like a Law written in our hearts, and has the same purpose even for Unbelievers and Sceptical Agnostic fence sitters.

Paul explained this in his Epistle to the Roman Church.

Romans 2:14, CEV, “Some people naturally Obey the Law’s Commands, even though they don’t have the Law.”

This shows our Conscience has an innate sensitivity to the Moral Law.

We need to also be aware that Paul made an extremely Anti-PC statement in the Verse, “Some people naturally obey the Law’s Commands,”

The emphasis is on the words “Laws Commands”, and Paul did not politely say ‘Laws Suggestions’.

By saying ‘Laws Commands’, there is no room for debate, and nobody is being asked by God what their opinion is about the Law.

The Laws Commands are Black and White, and few Believers today understand that our entire Legal System has been built on the foundation of the Moral Law.

Today the ‘PC Experts’ are substituting the Moral Law for arbitrary Relative Laws, that are constantly evolving to suit the prevailing Political Culture.

Thankfully the Moral Law is our Tutor to bring us to Christ, because it shows us that we cannot Buy a Ticket to the Stairway to Heaven through Ritualism, Prayer Beads, Magic Mushrooms, Transcendental Meditation, or any other form of Ego based Religious Performances.

Would you like to obey your Conscience?

Faith Vs Wokeism

Some Theological ‘Experts’ are constantly trying to compromise the Gospel message, to make it fit in with the Political Correctness Agenda of the so-called Woke fanatics.

The Gospel of Grace as taught by Paul in his Epistle to the Roman Church is actually very straightforward and easy to understand.

Unfortunately, nowadays we need an Agnostic Theologian to confuse people as to the Truth of the Gospel.

Paul referred to the Gospel of Grace as the Good News, and not as the Ten Commandments of the PC Agenda.

In Romans Ch 1:16, CEV, “I am proud of the Good News! It is God’s powerful way of Saving all people who have Faith,…”

We can see from this that what made Paul call the Gospel the Good News, is that it could Save all people who have Faith.

The Gospel was not excluding any people of any Race or Gender, or Religious Practitioner or Substance Abuser or even a PC brainwashed and indoctrination advocate.

Paul is saying that anyone can get Saved as long as they have Faith.

Notice Paul did NOT say, ‘The Good News is only for those who Chant Mantras and Recite Prayer Beads, or Practice Transcendental Meditation, or take Psychedelic Mushrooms, or are Victims of Society, or earn Grace Points by participating in Ritualism, or perfectly follow the Ten Commandments and never make a mistake, or who invoke a Female Deity to help them because the Father God is not listening, or are Agnostic because they prefer to sit on the fence.’

Paul makes it abundantly clear that Gods POWERFUL way of Saving people is by Faith.

Today we have Politically Correct Theological Professors rejecting Paul’s Salvation by Faith Gospel, because it destroys their entire Victimhood narrative that is the foundation of their ideological position.

If the Gospel of Salvation is freely available to everyone, then there is no argument that any class or group or race is excluded, and therefore the Church cannot be presented as the oppressor of the marginalised.

Anyone can be Saved by Faith, even Atheist ideologues can be Saved on their deathbed, and sometimes are.

Romans 1:17, CEV, “The GOOD NEWS tells how God accepts EVERYONE who has Faith, but only those who have Faith.”

So Faith is the gateway to Receive the Good News, and to no longer be susceptible to the Fake News.

The Good News supersedes and overrides and exposes the Fake News.

Someone objects, ‘You can’t be Saved by Faith, it’s not that simple, you have to earn Grace Points to Buy your Ticket to Heaven, and we currently have a Sale on Indulgences, and you must recite your Prayer Beads 13 times per day.’

Someone else says, ‘You can’t be Saved by Faith unless you are very strictly following the Ten Commandments, and not making any mistakes, and have a purely vegetarian diet, and are perfectly dressed and have a very Self Righteous demeanour.’

And someone else says, ‘I confess my Faith in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour. I will not be deceived by the PC Agenda, because I’m Saved by the Blood of the Lambs Sacrifice on the Cross.’

Would you like to Receive the Good News?
