Just Say you Believe in Jesus Christ

"Just say you believe in Jesus Christ, and you will be saved." Sounds good, doesn't it?

It is a great lie put out by Satan that you can just say "I believe in Jesus Christ" and be saved. Here's why:

Jas_2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

Salvation is not of works. You cannot just say something to be saved. You must be born again, of God. Ironically the people who claim salvation by just saying something without actual faith in God and that God will say you by his grace are contradicting their own theory. They claim salvation by a single work of saying something that they claim will be blessed by God. You cannot say one thing and believe another in your heart and deceive God.

I don't think they understand that God is a jealous God and tries our hearts and reins. Also, many of these people are trying to justify people who have tresspassed and offended Christians in their evil deeds.

Mal_2:17 Ye have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment?

These people who profess Christianity are like the 2x2s who say "Profess and go to meetings". Their version is "She said that she accepts Jesus as her Lord and Savior, so it's OK." They feel as long as someone professes to love Jesus, repeats Christian phrases and they go to church, that everything is OK. They are like the OVERSEERS and WORKERS who refuse the judgment of the law for sexually abusing children. They find people to justify themselves and say to themselves "I don't need to repent. I did what I felt was right at the time."

Psa_7:9 Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous God trieth the hearts and reins.

God Judges by Actions

Joh_5:29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

Born of Will of Man or Will of God?

Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Joh 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Many people supposedly become "Christians" because they are born of the will of some man or woman who wants them to be. We must be born of God, not of man.

A lot of people say they believe in God. A lot of people believe in a "Sounds Good to Me" religion. If something sounds good, and nice and makes them feel warm, cuddly and fluffy inside, then they believe it and teach it to others. They forward it in their emails. They pass on the "nice thought" in phone conversations. They use it to persuade their friends, absent of scripture. They preach it from the pulpit. I was a "nice thought" 2x2 worker once, I know how it goes. "Think positive", they say. They don't love God (they say they do, but their works deny Him). They don't search the scripture to see if what "sounds nice" is actually true. They don't test what they believe or what they hear against the Word of God.

When It's Used

Sayings like "Just say you believe in Jesus Christ and you will be saved." are often used in the context of "Mom, he says he believes in Jesus Christ, so I want to date him." - self justification, while dishonoring parents. Jesus Christ said if we don't love him, then we won't keep his sayings. And honoring our parents is a commandment of Jesus Christ.

Did you know that Satanists believe in Jesus Christ too?

Read more. If you have fallen for the "Just say you believe in Jesus Christ" lie, then please read what James wrote.

Jas 2:14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?
Jas 2:15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, and one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?

Just Saying but no Repentance

If those scriptures aren't enough, more probably won't help. But here are more things to consider. John the Baptist has "Just Say You..." people coming to his baptism. What did John the Baptist say to them?

Mat 3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance: And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

also consider

Jer_13:23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.

Prophecy

Jud 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.
