SATAN IS THE GREAT DECEIVER by steve finnell
To convince men that for the remissions of sins means because your sins has already been forgiven takes a willing subject and the master of deception.
Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins.....(NKJV)
When you take an aspirin for a headache, you do not take an aspirin because your headache has already been eradicated. For means in order to have your headache cured.
When you have surgery for a damaged heart, you do not have surgery because the heart has already been repaired.
When you take pills for high blood pressure, you are not taking pills because your blood pressure has already been corrected.
For the remission of sins means in order to receive forgiveness.
For the remission of sins does mean because your sins have already been forgiven.
It takes a maven of trickery, a master of deception, and a skilled professional to convince people that for forgiveness of sins means because your sins have already been forgiven.
Pride can cloud the understanding and wisdom of men.
Honestly seeking God's truth is the way of salvation through Jesus Christ.
