Adam condemned you in Eden; you condemn yourself daily; your perverse nature loves sin and hates God; you are doomed to hell forever (Rom 3:9-18,23; 5:12-19; 6:23). You need a Savior, and not any savior will do, for the offended Judge is Almighty God, who cannot and will not acquit or clear you (Ex 34:7; Nah 1:3). There is no more important topic. How can you be saved from certain judgment?

Adam and Eve tried fig leaves and the blame game. Cain tried a new religion. Noah’s generation tried ignoring the warnings. Israel tried the brazen serpent, the ark of the covenant, and then the temple. Legalists tried Moses’ law. Catholics hope in sacraments. Buddhists hope in reincarnation. Mormons hope in baptism for the dead. Many hope in a decision for Jesus. Where is your hope? Will it work?

When Was Cornelius Saved?

Did Peter save Cornelius? By preaching? Baptism? Or did God save Cornelius by free grace in Jesus Christ, and Peter only told him about it?
The record of Cornelius in Acts 10 is an inspired account of the first official Gentile conversion. Most today think that eternal life hinges on a decision made for Jesus during the repeated singing of “Just As I Am.” But Peter did not give an invitation, and they did not sing a funeral dirge played on an organ. Cornelius was accepted with God and born again long before meeting Peter. Read about it, and get the Bible order of salvation established in your mind.

How sinners are made just and righteous before God is of great importance. Both Arminians and Calvinists claim sinners must believe before God will justify them. We hold that justification is by Jesus Christ alone, just as our Baptist ancestors did in the 1600s. Read this worthy explanation by Samuel Richardson from 1647.
