ATONE FOR THE DAY
"Do not be led away by diverse and strange teachings, for it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace, not by foods, which have not benefited those devoted to them" Hebrews 13:9).
Any teaching or doctrine outside the Word of God is either human traditions or vain philosophies of man. These teachings will not save you or improve your relation with God. Why do people follow these teachings or practice them? Simply because man is trying to enhance his standing before a Holy God thinking that he/she will gain acceptance or special indulgences from God by doing good works.
Consider this, your good works will not save you from the wrath of God (Eph. 2:1-9; Rom. 5:9). Nor can any man absolve you from your sins (1 Tim. 2:5; 1 John 1:9). That's why it is important for you to be born again (John 3:5-6; Titus 3:5-6) You must repent and believe only on the Lord Jesus Christ in order to have your sins forgiven (Luke 13:3). And lastly, put your faith and trust in Christ's finished work on the cross (Heb. 9:22).
Remember this, your church cannot save you, your religion cannot save you, your good works cannot save you, and neither can your rabbi, preacher, or priest save you, ONLY JESUS CHRIST SAVES (Acts 16:30-31).
