Listen to Christ

Don’t allow anyone convince you the disciples were not “saved” until Pentecost. Christ (Joh ch.17) said His disciples were not sinners.

Those who say disciples were “of this world” until Pentecost are saying Jesus was of this world. That is blasphemy!

v6 “…the men Thou gavest Me out of the world…”

v9 “I pray for them: I pray not for the world…they are Thine.” 

v12 “While I was…in the world I kept them in Thy name…”

v16 “They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.”

We’ve mistaken church attendance for worship, religion for righteousness,

Man up!

You were raised that doing/wearing/saying “X” was sin

or definitely questionable. But peers in school (“christian” school?) were involved in “X.” Either it looked fun or you-so-wanted to “fit in” you yielded. Perhaps you see your mistake. If you could live over you wouldn’t accept “X.” Either it IS sin or if not, it’s silly and has plagued your days/dollars. “But – – – if I admit I was wrong I’ll look stupid.” In whose sight? Fleeting mankind? A percentage of hell’s population is there because they were NOT man/woman enough to admit they were wrong. They WERE embarrassed – NOW they are damned.

Man up!
