…that if you will confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart, one believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
How can anyone argue with these verses? A simply stated, clearly explained, easily understood road to God… isn’t it?
If you take these verses by themselves you can definitely misunderstand what it means to repent, to see your sin, your crimes against God, as He sees them. For without being humbe, broken over your failure to be as God commands you to be, commands us all to be, perfectly lovingas He is, we will never receive His Son’s payment. Why would you even CARE if you don’t think you need it? After all, you’re a good person, right?
