I saw this short video clip I Saw Millions of "Christians" in Hell (Speaker: Ivan Tuttle, Host: It's Sid Roth It's Supernatural) today, and I must say it is very sad to hear so many Christians being misled by wrong beliefs.
I have heard Christian leaders preaching "Once saved, Always saved"; and I have heard people believing that they can go to Heaven if they just say a prayer before they pass away.
However, I do not think this is true according to the Gospel.
First, the Bible never says one can be saved by saying a prayer. Faith of a believer has to be proved by works!
What does it profit, my brothers, though a man say he has faith, and does not have works? Can faith save him? ..... Even so faith, if it does not have works, is dead ..... James 2:14-17.
Second, Jesus said many times in Revelations that eternal life will only be granted to "he that overcomes"! Overcome what? Overcome flesh, overcome sins!
..... To him that overcomes will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God. Revelations 2:7
Being a Christian is almost like being in a battlefield in this "fallen world". Everyday, you have to fight so many temptations, so many fleshly desires! However, many Christians are so comfortable believing that all their sins, past, present, and future have already been forgiven that they do not bother to make any changes in their current lives! In fact, many of them do not even read the Bible!
Jesus has actually made it very clear that not everyone who says he or she is a believer can go to Heaven. I really hope all Christians will seriously study the Word to find out the truth!
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matthew 7:21-23.
