Have mercy

Don’t you just want to say to some people sometimes: “Hey, would you take it easy on me, please? Would you have some grace and mercy on me? God is working in me, but yes, I still have a thousand flaws and sins. My flesh is irredeemably bad. And so do you, and so is yours. Live in God’s grace and love. CS

The 9 Baptisms in the Bible

— “There are at least NINE different “baptisms” in the Bible. The only one that saves your soul happens instantaneously at the moment when you believe in Jesus, who did everything necessary for your forgiveness and salvation. This is NOT baptism into water. We are spiritually baptized into Christ’s death and His resurrection, by faith, at the moment of belief.” CS —

People who have believed in Jesus cannot go to Hell.

— “Once a person believes in Jesus as Savior, that person ~cannot~ go to Hell after that point, no matter what he does. Why? Because of what the nature of what “salvation” is. Salvation is: God forgiving all of a person’s sins, declaring a person “not guilty,” giving a person eternal life, the Holy Spirit indwelling a person forever, God sealing a person with His own Holy Spirit, God spiritually seating a person in Heaven. There is no undoing or reversing any of these gifts which God Himself calls, “irrevocable.” CS —
