A Church Can’t Save You

There are way to many people that put their salvation in the church, they are lost.

I was talking to a brother on this, I said “a church can’t save you and not having a church will not condemn you” and he replied “your lost!”.

But it’s true, it does not matter what church you attend, or if you don’t attend one at all. There are many in this world who live in places where there is no church, or the only church they have access to is a false one. The Father does not abandon someone because of this.

What does scripture say about salvation:

Acts 2:38
Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Mark 16:16
He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned

Acts 16:31
They said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.

John 3:18
Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

John 3:36
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life. Whoever rejects the Son will not see life. Instead, the wrath of God remains on him.”

Justification by Faith

Romans 3:21-31
But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed; for the demonstration, I say, of His righteousness at the present time, so that He would be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

Where then is boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? Of works? No, but by a law of faith. For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law. Or is God the God of Jews only? Is He not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also, since indeed God who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith is one.
Do we then nullify the Law through faith? May it never be! On the contrary, we establish the Law.

I’m not saying to avoid church, but put your Faith in Christ, worship the Father, study scripture.
