πŸ‘‘ Simple As Can Be

Have you ever heard some preacher say: β€œThere are many things in the Bible which are hard to understand but, thank God, the plan of salvation is as simple as can be.”

Well the plan of salvation is simple IF we obey II Timothy 2:15, β€œrightly dividing the Word of truth.” Otherwise it is far from simple.

The Apostle Paul wrote: β€œWe conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law” (Rom. 3:28). Yet James wrote: β€œBy works a man is justified, and not by faith only” (James 2:24).

Again, at Sinai God said to Israel through Moses: β€œIf ye will obey My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto Me above all people …” (Ex. 19:5). But our Lord said, as He sent His apostles to witness for Him that, β€œHe that believeth and is baptized shall be saved… and these signs shall follow them that believe: in My name shall they cast out demons, they shall speak with new tongues…” etc. (Mark 16:16-18). Thus, according to their β€œgreat commission” water baptism was required for salvation and miraculous signs were the evidences of salvation.

Confusing? Contradictory? Not if we β€œrightly divide the Word of truth.” It was after β€œthe law was given by Moses,” after our Lord’s earthly ministry, after the commission to the twelve, that God raised up another apostle, Paul, and sent him forth with β€œthe gospel of the grace of God” (Acts 20:24).

It was Paul who was sent to declare: β€œBut NOW, the righteousness of God without the law is manifested…” (Rom. 3:21). β€œTo him that worketh not, but believeth on Him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness” (Rom. 4:5). β€œTherefore, being justified by faith we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Rom. 5:1). source
