This list of crucial Christian doctrine is not every crucial doctrine but is enough to separate the believer from the false churches. Three pillars of Christian doctrine: 1. Christ is God along with the Father and Spirit. Christ's righteousness is God's gift to those saved. 2. The law of Moses cannot save people. Only the gospel can save. The law of Moses is external to the heart. It is good, but acts as a curse on mankind as only Jesus could keep it. The gospel of faith in Jesus comes from above. 3. The true Christian is saved by predestination, not at all by free will. No one believes unless drawn to Christ. -----‐---------------------- Preserve the blessing in Christ: A. Flee the Denominations. Flee Sacralist religion. B. Flee all cults that seek to control your lives as well, fellow believers! C. Flee those who teach Christ was begotten in heaven. He was only begotten on earth, being called the Son after He was born and then begotten at the Resurrection. Christ was the

The human mind cannot always take in the sobering reality of predestination. We who are predestined are grateful, but sorrowful. We know many we love are not so predestined. It hurts. Paul said he could wish that he would suffer if his kinsmen would be saved. But it is also that same Apostle Paul who told the truth in Romans chapter 9, that some vessels were created for special use, like fancy kitchenware, and others were created for menial use, to be thrown away. The truth is, sin is created by those who are not kept from it. The devil and Adam created sin in their acts of defiance, having been permitted to have a will apart from the will of God. They used that will to create sin. It is always that way. Only God is good, and only His Will is sinless. So then, there are a few predestined to heaven, through God given faith. And there are many, including many who believed in predestination like Calvin and the Protestants, who are predestined to hell. They were created for menial
The love of God in my life began 50 years ago. I was not looking for God. I had heard bad versions of the gospel multiple times prior to age 21. But at that age of 21, God took pieces of the gospel I had heard and gave me an understanding of Godly faith through divine revelation. So when I was 21, not looking for God, I was taken over from above. My heart was cut. The true nature of my unbelief was exposed. I was alone in a house at the time. God did not ask me for permission to construct this surgery on my soul. My old heart was replaced by a new heart. I had nothing to do with it. God decided to change me heart compelling me to repent of my unbelief! So, I had no choice, I was falling even though I stood on solid ground. I had to express my need for the Savior as unbelief became very uncomfortable. Looking to Him I was given repentance which can only come through this regeneration. Being born again through the spiritual cutting of the heart came before my repentance and faith.
