Salvation Equation? Jesus Coming back in 2028?

-------------------------------------------------------
His salvation equation is A (man's duty) + B (God's duty) = C (salvation)
B = Jesus death and ressurection
A = Repentance, or follow the 10 commandments (which confuses me because I thought Paul said we didn't have to observe the sabbath in Colossians 2:16-17

-----------------------------------------------------
My view on the salvation equation, where
A = Faith which leads to repentance, where repentance means living a God pleasing life

----------------------------------------------------

I found these sites through the youtube channel '2028 end' where he has also stockpiled Christian heaven/hell testimonies, and he makes some good points in his own videos.

What do you think? It would actually take a good chunk of time hearing his side of things, but I feel like he is well researched and makes some good points.

Thanks!

At first I was like :shock:

Then I was like y:-?

Then I realized you were testing us.

You couldn't, in any amount of seriousness, post links to a works based salvationist/false prophet.

Good one claysmithr! You almost got me, and it isn't even April Fool's Day!

In Jesus' own words, we are told NOT to try and wonder WHEN the end will come.
Acts 1: 6-8

So, maybe we should listen to Him.

Jesus said we should be be on watch for his return.

"No man knows the day nor hour" might actually be a reference to Rosh Hashanah, and notice he never said we can't know the year.

Also, would you consider Faith that leads to repentance a work? Or would you be a universalist, thinking no one has to do anything to be saved, because that would be considered a work? Do you think man has NO PART to play in his own salvation?

I'd have to have you define "repentance" before I could answer that. Many people redefine repentance, to mean "a turning away from sin".
Or would you be a universalist, thinking no one has to do anything to be saved, because that would be considered a work? Do you think man has NO PART to play in his own salvation?
Salvation is by grace, through faith. Many people claim that they believe that, but then they add something to faith, making it no longer through faith. For example, some will say, "yes, I believe salvation is through faith." But then they say we must follow God's commandments, or do something else to keep salvation.

How to have eternal life? It's really simple. John 3:16

Saying that people need to follow the 10 commandments, as the link you posted believes, is making salvation based on our works, which means it's no longer through faith.
1 Corinthians 1:9
9 God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Watching for His return is NOT the same is trying to figure it out or guess, which He tells us NOT to do.
The passage in ACTS is quite clear.
Read it again:
7 He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority;

Belief is the Key to our salvation, what we have to "do" is believe ( which leads to repentance and redemption).
If we have to "do"something to be saved then Christ's death and resurrection mean what exactly? what did Jesus leave undone? why was His sacrifice NOT enough?

I believe that true faith leads to repentance and obedience towards Jesus.

John 3:36 uses the term 'believe' and 'obey' interchangeably, just FYI.

Also, I'm not in 100% agreement with Gabriel, I just thought he had an interesting take on things.

Thanks!

In John 3:36, there are two separate words, that don't mean the same thing.
Pisteuō, and apeitheō.

If I'm not mistaken, pisteuō means to believe in, or to put trust in.
Apeitheō means to refuse or withhold belief. In John 3:36, it's referring to refusing to believe in, or withholding belief in the Gospel.

Maybe someone who knows Greek, can chime in.

9 God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

It's never a bad thing to be able to talk about things like this. I'm glad you brought this to light. Maybe it'll save someone from believing this guy.
