Son, I wonder what people would think of their church if they actually read and studied the Bible themselves? Will there be rules and beliefs they practice that are mentioned in the Bible as false or not listed at all as requirements to go to heaven? Salvation is nothing to mess around with, you can’t take a chance. The only way you know for sure is to read the Truth. I’m not sure God will accept “that is what I learned in Church” as an excuse if you haven’t read His Word he left for us.
For centuries churches have strayed from the Word of God. Some think Christ dying on the cross was not enough and that you must earn your way with man made rules and practices. This radically minimizes the sacrifice God made by sending His Son to die on the cross. I am not trying to point fingers. I am trying to help others ensure they are saved. My eyes have been opened and I am in shock at how many things the Bibles says are wrong that our major religions are preaching as right. It’s not good son!
Don’t trust what anyone tells you, find out for yourself. Read the Bible!
I love you my boy!
Gal. 2:16, “nevertheless knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the Law but through faith in Christ Jesus, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we may be justified by faith in Christ, and not by the works of the Law; since by the works of the Law shall no flesh be justified.”
