The doctrines of repentance and contrition over sin are omitted in most churches today. Without this foundational understanding of salvation, one cannot possibly be saved. Before one needs a Savior, they must first realize that they are a sinner. The church is a lost and found department. We are warned about the lack of spiritual receptivity in the hearts of men in the last days…….
II Timothy 4:3-4 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
How true! During the time of Israel’s apostasy in the book of Judges, the individual families hired their own custom priests to lead them. ….”every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” Today we observe a softer Gospel which omits the essential saving elements of the real Gospel. If you read the Bible continually, you will recognize the counterfeit.
