Salvation Requires No Effort

Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

       Here is what the satanic Jehovah's Witnesses teach at their official website (where their monthly AWAKE magazine is published)...

"Salvation is a free gift from God. It cannot be earned. Yet it does require effort on our part."

What a major contradiction!!! How can salvation not be earned, but it requires effort? Most Christians are not aware that JW's teach salvation is a free gift, but they are deceitful and in reality require self effort instead. They are liars! It tricks people's minds because once you hear that salvation is a gift, it takes your mind off guard. One of the traits of human psychology is that people tend to think about the first statement made to them, and then everything else is secondary.

Now read and see that Eric Hovind and Paul Taylor teach at 'Creation Science Evangelism' (CSE), which is the same exact heresy as what the Jehovah's Witnesses teach...

“How can you be saved?
First, you must recognize the truth of what I have written above — that you are a sinner, who deserves hell and who needs and wants a Savior.

Second, repent of your sin.
This means that you must turn completely away from your sin. It is more than just saying sorry; it is a complete change of direction as you endeavor, by God’s power, to go His way, instead of the way of sin.

Third, you must trust in Jesus completely. You see, He took the punishment for your sins on the cross. He is the only person who never sinned — yet God the Father punished His Son in your place and in my place, if we will accept Him. So put your complete trust in Jesus. Pray to Him (this is like talking to Him) and ask Him to forgive you. He always and immediately forgives those who genuinely call on Him in this way.” [emphasis added]


Here again, the Jehovah's Witnesses are teaching the same exact false understanding of repentance as CSE...

"Thus, "accepting Christ" involves far more than just accepting the blessings that Jesus' superlative sacrifice offers. Obedience is required. ... So we must do more than simply hear and believe."

The message is clearly that admission of sinnership and faith in Christ is NOT enough to save a person; but that there must also be some amount of personal effort to depart from iniquity and ENDEAVOR to go God's way instead of the way of sin. That my friend is 100% self-righteousness!!! The Jehovah's Witnesses teach at that eternal life is a free gift, and that it cannot be earned; but then they turn right around and also teach that some amount of effort is required ON OUR PART. That's a LIE OF THE DEVIL.

God help us! Professed Christians are teaching the same bullcrap as the demonic Jehovah's Witness cult. Creation Science Evangelism claim to be fundamental Baptists. No they're not. They're CHANGING!!! Are you changing, that is, for the worse? Always be willing to change for good, but never for bad. All across America churchgoers have itching ears and are embracing false doctrine.

My friend, salvation requires no effort. Don't let anyone lead you away from the Lord Jesus Christ, who teach that HUMAN EFFORT is required for salvation. Shame on Eric Hovind, Ken Ham, Paul Taylor and the Creation Science Evangelism ministry for adding HUMAN EFFORT to salvation by grace through faith PLUS NOTHING!!!
