The Grace Gifts given at Salvation - Publications - Robert McLaughlin Bible Ministries / Grace Bible Church - bible doctrine truth in Christ
There is quite a bit more to salvation and entering into the Kingdom than just saying some I believe in Jesus as my Savior Prayer. You have to deny yourself completely and follow Him. You have to crucify your carnal man completely to receive any spiritual revelation from God because these things can only be revealed once you are perfected. You are not made perfect overnight....this is a long and sometimes painful process. We will go through much tribulation before we can enter into the Kingdom. Contray to what you think...you can lose your salvation if you turn away from God...that is why we are told to work out our salvation with fear and trembling.

I suggest you quit reading books and start reading your bible and seriously seeking God for your answers...I feel you are mightily confused about a few issues just based on what you listed.

Let's just start with the first one... You are saying that we get access to God upon salvation...

But how can one NOT have access and even get close to salvation, in your mind?

5)Election (Eph.1:3-4; Col 3:12-17)
Are you saying that election comes after we believe?

For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth. (Rom 9:11)

I sorta disagree.
I believe that Jesus' death on the cross was to save the Jews from their law and so they are slaves of Christ. Gentiles are saved by God in fulfillment of the prophecy to Abraham that his spiritual "seed" was the father of many (hence the name change).

Abraham was counted as righteous first..before he obeyed God and became circumcised. Circumcision of the heart is done by the holy spirit in Gentiles.

Romans 4:13
For the promise to Abraham or to his descendants that he would be heir of the world was not through the Law, but through the righteousness of faith.

Jesus' faith I presume, because I count myself as one of the "ye of little faith" crowd.

Now that is not to say that I believe there is a line between Jews and Gentiles that is of any significance... we are all children of God, but in the 1st century that was significant in teaching the word of God.

Salvation is the result of one simple act of nonmeritorious faith in Christ.

Every single grace gift listed is directly from the Bible. Study the passages that have been given.

Have you not learned your lesson? You denied that the Bible said anything about the angelic conflict, and I then gave many passages that prove that the Bible has much to say about it.

I'm confused about what you disagree with? He thinks you just "choose" Jesus and you automatically receive all of the things he listed and I wholeheartedly disagree with him. Killing our carnal man and walking with Jesus is a long process...and not something that happens in an instant of choosing.

R U kidding me....you haven't supplied one piece of biblical evidence to support that angelic war nonsense you've been spouting after many and numerous requests have been made of you.

Read the actual booklet at the link for more detail on what I posted.

This is not a debate. I have given cold hard fact. Do with it what you will. Those who are believers in Christ and have a desire to grow in their spiritual life will benefit by this information. Those who seek only to criticize, already have their reward.
