Is it any one man?
Is it any self-proclaimed saviour?
Or is salvation of the God of the Bible, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ who paid the price for our sin debt according to 1 Corinthians 15:1-4?
Only the Lord Jesus Christ ACCORDING TO THE REVELATION OF THE MYSTERY (Romans 16:25-26) can save a persons soul.
So why do some people feel they have to confess that Jesus is Lord? That He is the Christ? It’s a pointless exercise.
You can still confess with your mouth that He is Lord/Christ/Saviour – and still not be saved, because the Bible says that every knee will bow to Him and every mouth will confess that He is Lord – both saved and unsaved.
Only lost people can make up their own gospel – do it their (own) way, which makes them feel and look good to themselves, as well as thinking they have garnered God’s approval.
The Apostle Paul was SPECIFIC – salvation during this current dispensation only comes through faith alone in Christ’s finished work on calvary’s cross and His resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:14).
We aren’t saved through knowledge of Right Division, nor are we saved through edification. We are saved solely through what He did and that He rose from the dead on the third day.
