BIBLE BASICS

Are we justified and saved by faith ‘alone’, are we justified and saved by ‘faith and works’ or are we justified and saved by only ‘works’? This is an all important question for which we should the scriptural answer clearly and precisely. Otherwise our salvation itself is in danger.

Many people argue that tithing is not relevant under the new covenant as we are no longer required to be governed by the Old Testament law. According to those who hold to this view all that matters under the New Covenant is Spirit-led giving.  What does the bible really teach?

Baptism is an essential outward sign that brings grace for a new life when a person receives Jesus into his life. It is not a mere ritual that is performed and therefore needs to be understood. According to the Bible baptism is the outward expression of the New Life that we have received in Jesus Christ. It is not a matter of mere tradition practiced but an expression of our obedience to Jesus and His word. It is a step in obedience we take once we have come to know Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior. Therefore, the following questions are important - who can be baptized - infants or adults? How should a person be baptized? What happens during and after baptism?

Jesus, in his conversation with Nicodemus told him that unless a man is born again he will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. So, if being born again is the way into the Kingdom of God, then it is of utmost importance; in fact, it is the most important aspect of a persons’ life, as being born again or not is going to determine his/her eternal destiny.

Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy,That it cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear.(Is 59 :1-2)

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.(Psalm 91:1-2)
