If, on the cross, Jesus paid our sin debt past, present and future, then everyone in the world is already saved, because all sins by everyone now alive were future sins when Jesus died. Why are so many preachers who teach this doctrine still trying to get people saved? It seems that most of them are talking out of both sides of their mouth. The truth remains that provision for forgiveness of sin was accomplished on the cross. I don’t get it.
What are the bible’s thoughts on Christians who try to change our society through government or Christian activism. They say Christians who don’t participate, are just being lazy, apathetic, etc. That we must get out there on the street and change our world for Christ by getting involved. I used to be one of these but I have lost faith in this method. What does The bible have to say about this, not based on feelings etc. but pure biblical truth.
Some say 1 Thessalonians 5:5-10 says that one is to not “sleep”, but be sober and keep armor on in order to attain final salvation. Others say it means that we are children of the light so we are to put on this armor since we are going up. Which one is correct?
