LEST WE FORGET

2 Corinthians 11:3 ~ “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.”

THERE IS SIMPLICITY IN CHRIST.

Not the complications of proof-texting (ripping scripture out of context)

Not a performance, works-based faith where you have to “do” in order to be saved.

The faith of Christ is simple, uncomplicated, it is where God’s righteousness is received/obtained today by pure faith alone (in Christ’s finished work on Calvary’s cross and His resurrection on the 3rd day).  Not by our own righteousness.

Neither are we clothed in our own righteousness, but God’s righteousness, after we have believed.  We are RECONCILED, SANCTIFIED, JUSTIFIED – SAVED.

God, in this current dispensation of grace is busy RECONCILING the world unto Himself by way of the word of RECONCILIATION, the word of truth for this dispensation, the gospel of 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, i.e., those who have FAITH  alone  in His death for our sins, His burial and His resurrection on the third day are reconciled to God, i.e., they are saved because their faith justifies them in the eyes of God.
