Salvation

Eph. 2:8
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

KJV

 

Before you come to Right Division, you must receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal savior.   When Jesus was here in the flesh, read how a wise ruler of the Jews asked him how one must be born again: John 3:1-3 KJV "1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews: 2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him. 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.".  In Psalms 14:1 KJV we learn: "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good."  Once you become saved, now you must ask what the Lord would have you do, and that is were Right Division will help understand scripture so you may know your calling and act upon it.

Spiritual Spud

"Be a Spirtual Spud" Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head exclaimed!  They centered their message around the verse in Psalm 139:14 (KJV) “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”  They said we should honor God with our whole body. Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head want to share with you some scripture on praising God which they call “Spudly” Wisdom… using your body parts to praise God!  This material uses all the potato head body parts to highlight scripture as to how they may be used to glory God... and sometimes not.  It was a fun way to have children think of their Christian behavior.

Free GiftWhen we consider the wonder of God, His infinity, and the glory of His awesome majesty, we must ask ourselves the question, "How can we ever comprehend Him?" But this unfathomable God, whose ways are described as being past finding out, has provided a way by which we can come to know enough about Him that is life saving to our mortal sinful souls. He has shed His light and His love; and this is bound up in the doctrine of Christ (2 John 9).  Click read more to learn about your free gift.

Colossians 2:8-10 -"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For In him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:"

THE GREATEST DISCOVERY that any human being can make is the discovery of the ALL-SUFFICIENCY OF CHRIST, and the utter worthlessness of man without Him. Christ is all, and in Him we have all. Without Him we are nothing, absolutely nothing. It makes no difference how many times we multiply ciphers: they will be devoid of all magnitude or quality until we place some digit before them But once a digit is placed before them, they take on meaning, value, significance.

The all sufficiency of Christ's sacrifice for sin (Acts 4:12; Hebrews 10:14) that salvation is by grace through faith in the completed work of the Lord Jesus Christ on Calvary's Cross (Ephesians 2:8-9). A recognition of who Christ is and His essential Deity, leads naturally to why God became manifest in the flesh and the need for His sacrifice on the cross of Calvary. We believe not only was that sacrifice absolutely necessary, but also that it was completely sufficient for our salvation. The essential facts are basically simple and logical.

The many divisions and varied opinions about this sub­ject make it appear almost like a hopeless task, particular­ly so for the one who honestly tries to clear the air of all its entanglements. Nevertheless, we must do what we can.

Paul spoke of the “simplicity” in Christ.

“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.” 2 Corinthians 11:3

God made things simple for man, but man chooses to complicate them. Adam’s first orders were extremely simple:

Probably no argument has been waxed longer or louder than the one over “Once saved, always saved.” Some have said that this belief honors Christ’s work on the cross; others say that it is a license to sin. “If I believed ‘once saved, always saved’ I would do anything I wanted to do,” is a familiar cry. Volumes have been written on both sides of this coin. A few years ago I wrote an article on “Twice lost, always lost;” revealing that if a person gets saved and then loses his salvation, he is forever doomed. There is no such thing in the Bible of a person getting saved twice!

…and came trembling, and fell down…”  Acts 16:29 These words describe the Philippian jailer and his conversion before Paul and Silas.  Many of you are familiar with the story.  Paul had been arrested for casting a devil out of a young maiden who had associated herself with them.  This cost the young maiden her supernatural powers and she became a liability instead of an asset to her masters.  They went into a rage over the loss of their income, arrested, beat and imprisoned Paul and Silas, charging the jailer with their safety.

By the time you read this, the election results will be history. The New Religious Right will be happy or the liberal left will be happy. Actually, the results will be whether we increased or slowed down our plummet into the depths of destruction. Billions of dollars were spent on promoting a cause. To some the cause was purely racial, they saw no other issue.

“He is not here: for he is risen...” Matthew 28:6

Every year the world must hear about the resurrection of Jesus Christ. All the Muslims, Buddhists, New Agers, atheists, etc. are informed one more time that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, was buried and arose again the third day for our salvation.

Christianity is the only “religion” with a living Founder.

“He is not here: for he is risen…” Matthew 28:6

We can sing at the top of our voices, “He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today…”

The One Way Road Map was created for Church Camp in 2003.  It was built around the scripture in 2 Timothy 3:16,17 KJV "16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."  Once saved, a Christian is on a journey and this chart has them sta

There are two natures in a Christian, the old nature you are conceived with and the new nature you receive when you become a Christian.  Psalms 51:5 KJV "5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me."  Ephesians 1:13; 4:30 KJV "1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption." God created man with a three-fold nature.  These are the Body
