On some occasions I have been accused of sharing the doctrine of “Easy Believism.” Have you ever been accused of that?
I believe that Jesus Christ is the true and only Savior of the world. He died personally for your sins and mine — those sins that would separate us from God for all eternity. He was buried and arose from the grave, proving He is God. He is alive today. [1 Corinthians 15:1-4]
Now the simple part.. God simply asks you to trust (believe in) Jesus Christ for your eternal life. He paid the death penalty price and all He asks of you is that you will believe Him. [John 3:16]
That is the very essence of God’s salvation and it is forever.
In John 10:28 Jesus Himself said about those who trust Him as Savior:
“And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”
Salvation is NOT by doing good works but by trusting in Christ alone as your Savior. [Ephesians 2:8-9]
Sure, we should do good works after we have believed in Christ just as the Bible says — this is not for our salvation but because he saved us and now we do His works to show our love for our Savior. [Ephesians 2:10]
Now, if that is called “easy believism,” I plead guilty.
I refuse to believe that the God of the Universe would promote and offer a “Hard Believism” requiring anything other than our one time decision to simply trust Jesus Christ for what He is — The Savior, His Gift to mankind.
