Elder Michael Calhoun teaching on the theme “The Whole Counsel of God”. Repentance and Faith have always – and, always will be – the requisites for salvation. This is the reason that preachers and teachers today are preaching and teaching the same “Plan of Salvation” today as Jesus, John the Baptist, Peter, Paul and others did in their day. Salvation is no “ABC” matter! No ”Accept, Believe, Confess” device of men will result in the gifts of Peace and Joy that only Jesus Christ offers. Preaching ought not to be a celebrity or popularity contest. Jesus is our “Great High Priest” and only He can bear the burden of our sins and forgive us of our sins … no man can handle that. God sent His Son, Jesus, not to condemn the world, but to call the world to repentance and faith. When we “confess” our sins, we are coming into agreement with God of our sinful nature, and when we do “confess”, and God sees our submission and total sincerity, our broken heart and spirit, He will certainly save us and change our very nature. In other words, our very desires change. And, there is evidence – a change of both our mind and our heart, even a certain remembrance of a time and a place when we are saved. We are admonished to “Trust in The Lord” for He can do for us what we cannot do for ourselves.
