KEY SCRIPTURE: Joh 9:41 KJV” Jesus said unto them, If ye were blind, ye should have no sin: but now ye say, We see; therefore your sin remaineth.”
The Pharisees heard Jesus’ conversation with the healed blind man, and they asked Him, are we also blind? The Lord interpreted their question that, they meant they were seeing. The Lord concluded that, since they claimed they see, then they were indeed blind. These were those that could be described as deceived. The sad truth is that most of the deceived are very religious people who are very sincere about their persuasions yet they are sincerely deceived.
Please let’s consider what Apostle Paul said about his people, the Jews. Rom 10:1,2 KJV “Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.” These people were very religious, zealous and sincere, yet they were lost. There are presently in our world very great multitudes of religious folks who make up a great number of our world population, who are very zealous about their beliefs yet they are sadly lost.
How can we claim they are lost? We can do so depending on whether the evidence of Christianity can ‘hold water or stand critical scrutiny.
1. Our Lord Jesus actually lived and walked this earth according to the bible and supported by classical history.
2. He claimed His death and resurrection would be the means of saving the world. These events happened and are fully supported by classical history and the bible.
3. Jesus said He is the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father but through Him. Every other way is a deception.
4 Anyone who sincerely believed in Him is set free from sin, and satanic bondage, and a living witness of a changed life.
In light of the above, will you continue to be deceived? Repent of your ways and believe on Jesus to set you free from eternal death unto life.
DEAR Lord Jesus, have mercy on me, for I did not submit to your Lordship. I confess Jesus as Lord over my life.
THOUGHT: BEING SINCERE IS NIT ENOUGH TO SAVE YOU, BELIEVING JESUS IS WHAT SAVES YOU.
Act 4:12 KJV “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
Rom 10:9 KJV That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
