This article has been written with caution and with the acknowledgement that there are things only God knows: the age of accountability of each child is one of them.

by John MacArthur

What is the Scriptural basis for an 'age of accountability' regarding a child's salvation?

The last book of the Bible records the irreversible consequences awaiting those rejecting God’s love. The love of which we speak is so beautifully demonstrated in Christ atoning sacrifice for our sins. Jesus took upon himself the punishment for our sins and suffered the crucifixion in our place.

We all want to know who we are. We seek and search and try to 'find ourselves.' Many of us have taken personality tests and other assessments. But as helpful as those tests can be, have you ever stopped to ask, 'What does God think about me? Who does he say that I am?'

Repentance may not be the popular message in today’s evangelical circles, but it’s the one that transforms hearts and makes disciples.

Nothing can be more important to a Christian than to know for certain that he or she is saved. In order to understand what it means to have faith in Jesus, we must first understand the nature of faith itself.

'The Lord is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.' - 2 Peter 3:9

You may gamble on a lot of things, but you can't afford to gamble with your eternal soul. The stakes are big and they are forever.
The popular slogan used in churches around the globe is 'God is good all the time'. God is love but there is another side to God that most people don't want to talk about.

Are you a Christian? Many people who claim to be point to some event in the past to substantiate their claim. But inviting Jesus to come into your life in the past is not proof that you are genuinely saved.

Who chooses where we will spend eternity? For generations, readers of the Bible have struggled with this question. Countless arguments over the
role of God’s sovereignty and human freedom have divided individuals, churches, and denominations.

Our acceptance by God does not depend on our goodness, but rather on his mercy. In answering the question 'Won't a good moral life get me to heaven?' we need to assert the following...

A unique way of presenting the power of the Gospel

Five core truths in connection with our salvation are mentioned in John 3:16. All five are divine wonders. They are the wonder of divine love, the wonder of a heavenly Saviour, the wonder of faith in God, the wonder of salvation from perdition, and the wonder of eternal life. The Bible offers a full exposition of these supernatural works of God, and emphasises the fact that Jesus Christ is the only Saviour of the world and that no person can save himself from his state of spiritual deadness and moral depravity.

In many churches today there seems to be an inordinate emphasis on the beautiful gift of salvation by grace alone, and yet there is so little teaching on the corresponding doctrines of obedience and fruit bearing through the spirit.

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. The one who has the Son has this eternal life; the one who does not have the Son of God does not have this eternal life - 1 John 5:11-12.   This passage tells us that God has given us eternal life and this life is in His Son, Jesus Christ. In other words, the way to possess eternal life is to possess God’s Son. The question is, how can a person have the Son of God?

The meaning of the word repentance has been twisted in recent years to the point that its biblical meaning is now obscured in the minds of many. The idea that genuine repentance could result in anything but a change of life is completely foreign to Scripture. What does the Bible teach about the relationship between salvation and repentance?

Churches today are filled with people who hold to a faith that does not save. James referred to this as a "dead faith"-meaning a mere empty profession. Paul wrote to the people in the church at Corinth to test or examine themselves to see if they were truly in the faith. Here is a list of seven conditions that do not prove or disprove the genuineness of saving faith. One can be a Christian and possess these things or one may not be a Christian at all and still possess them. While they don't prove or disprove one's faith, they're important to know and understand so you will not be deceived.

There is a debt, though, that is owed by all humans and we are unable to pay. That debt is the debt of sin that Adam brought upon all of mankind. Sin has separated us from God and the only way to ever be able to stand in His presence is to be perfect. That perfection is by God’s standards and is impossible for humans to attain. Adam and Eve tried to cover their sin by their own efforts using fig leaves, but God demonstrated what He required when He shed the blood of an animal to make coats of skins to cover their sin.

In the New Testament doctrine on salvation there is a mutual relationship between the concepts of “faith in Christ” and “repentance.” If we truly believe in Christ, repenting from our evil and selfish ways is inevitable. If we fail to recognize the close association between these two aspects of our salvation, giving due recognition to each of them, we are at risk of undermining and distorting the foundations of our spiritual life.

You may go to church, but perhaps you are still searching. There is an empty place in your heart, and something inside tells you that you’re not really right with God.

In a recent television interview Peter Ustinov, the famous actor, was asked for his 'doctrine of man'. He gave the reply 'Man is essentially good!' and was rewarded with sustained applause from the audience. Even among those who believe in the reality of heaven and hell, the popular conception is that the latter is reserved only for arch villains like Stalin, Hitler or Genghis Khan - perhaps along with a handful of gang rapists and serial killers.

When someone appeals to God and seeks forgiveness in Jesus, his sins are removed, he is cleansed, his relationship with God is restored, and he is made a new creature. All of this is the work of God, not man.

We believe in the One almighty God, who has revealed Himself through His Word as Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." John 14:6-7
