What Must I Do
Several times, Scripture records people posing the question to Jesus, “Teacher, what MUST I DO to obtain eternal life?” Notice, the question being asked is NOT, “Teacher, what MUST GOD DO so that I might obtain eternal life?” This distinction is of PARAMOUNT importance, for the answer is COMPLETELY different depending on which question is being asked!
If asking what WE (as human beings) must DO, the answer is ALWAYS part “A” in the Salvation Equation (“repent of sin” by striving to keep God’s 10 Love Commandments); but if asking what GOD must DO, the answer is ALWAYS part “B” in the Salvation Equation (“forgive our sins” through Christ Jesus’ death). If you understand this, you should be able to understand perfectly Christ’s responses to people’s question, “Teacher, what MUST I DO to obtain eternal life?” Here are his replies:
“If thou wilt enter into life, keep the (10 Love) Commandments … Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself” (Matthew 19:16-21)
“Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself … This DO, and thou shalt live” (Luke 10:25-28)
“Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother” (Luke 18:18-22)
Do you see? Every time Jesus was asked by someone what THEY must DO to obtain eternal life, he ALWAYS put the focus squarely on part “A” of the Salvation Equation, which is to prove one has “repented of sin” by working the “fruits of repentance” – which can be said in any of the four following ways: 1. “Obey (Keep) the 10 Love Commandments” or 2. “Love God with all your heart & love your neighbor as yourself” or 3. “Do unto others as you’d have them to do unto you” or 4. Just speak (list) the 10 Love Commandments. All 4 ways are exactly the same in meaning. And why would Jesus respond with these answers? Because he understood the Salvation Equation! He knew the Truth!!!
But today I challenge you to ask any minister, “Preacher, what MUST I DO to obtain eternal life?” And do you know what the response will be? Sadly, you will almost ALWAYS here that “preacher” start regurgitating the story of Jesus to you, what he did on the cross, etc. Do you see how wrong this is? The preacher is answering with part “B” in the Salvation Equation (what GOD had to DO) so that you might have eternal life! Absurd!!! That is NOT what you asked. Do you see how incorrect this is? This is as wrong an answer as if I asked you to teach me how to drive a car, and you begin to tell me all about the history of cars, how they were invented, who invented them, etc. Do you see? You’d look at me like I was crazy, and say, “Sir, that’s NOT at ALL what I asked! I want to know how to DRIVE this car!” Well, my friend, that’s exactly what Satan has done to today’s pastors, completely confusing them about God’s Word. It’s truly remarkable and extremely sad, for people’s eternal destinies are at stake!
Then, these confused preachers will usually finish their story about Jesus, by asking you, “Now, do you believe in Jesus’ story and what he did for you?” If you say yes, they’ll have you recite some words (sinner’s prayer) after them, and then proclaim, “Now you’re saved!” Uggh, do you see the MONSTROUS deception behind all of this? NONE of this is what YOU MUST DO to obtain eternal life! They never told you YOUR part in obtaining eternal life, which was your original question! They never spoke Jesus’ very own words in the Bible to this question. Truly, they never gave you a chance to obtain eternal life, because they never told you the ONLY thing they SHOULD have told you, “If you want to obtain eternal life, you MUST willingly choose to live by God’s 10 Love Commandments the rest of your life!”
Friend, most of today’s salvation doctrine in churchianity is all just one HUGE satanic deception meant to keep you in darkness to the truth and on your way to hell. So, if you get a chance, I urge you (for the loving sake of your fellow man) to point these “preachers” to this 10 Love Commandments website as quickly as possible, so they can learn the FULL TRUTH of salvation.
