1 Peter 1:13; NKJV

Followers of man-made religion and sects are not going God’s way through the grace given to us in Jesus for their reconciliation with God (“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Jesus in John 14:6; NIV); “For they don’t understand God’s way of making people right with himself. Refusing to accept God’s way, they cling to their own way of getting right with God by trying to keep the law.” (Romans 10:3; NLT) Where does such thinking lead? To hell / the lake of fire.

“So we are made right with God through faith and not by obeying the law.” (Romans 3:28; NLT)

Of course, religious people can believe what they want (the Christian-Jewish God of the Bible is a God of freedom who always respects the free will of us humans, and God doesn’t force someone to go to heaven against their will).

Grace message a false teaching?

The Bible is so clear that nobody can overlook it: it is only the grace given to us that saves us. Anyone who tramples on the sanctifying, shed blood of Jesus goes to hell.

Was Peter a false teacher?

If the grace message is heresy, then Peter was a false teacher. For Peter says this, “rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 1:13; NKJV)

No discussion with God-denied deniers of the sacrifice of Jesus

If someone can’t (doesn’t want to) believe that the shed blood of Jesus makes us blameless, righteous and holy before God (Colossians 1:22), then, of course, they can choose to believe that. But I don’t want to waste my precious time with such unbiblical nonsense.

“For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because they did not share the faith of those who obeyed.” (Hebrews 4:2; NIV)

Paul gave the following advice: “Do not waste time arguing over godless ideas and old wives’ tales. Instead, train yourself to be godly.” (1 Timothy 4:7; NLT) and the helpful instruction: “Keep a close watch on how you live and on your teaching. Stay true to what is right for the sake of your own salvation and the salvation of those who hear you.” (1 Timothy 4:16; NLT, color highlight added by me)
