“God gives you eternal life when you take Him. Eternal life is wrapped up in Christ. 'He that hath the Son hath life.' There is just one difference between a Christian and a sinner. A Christian has Christ and a sinner does not have Him. That is the only difference. All you need is Jesus. It is all in Jesus! If you will take Him, He will blot out all your sins. If you take Him, He will give you a new nature. If you take Him, He will go with you along the journey of life. He will be with you when you are tempted. He will put arms of power around you and give you the victory. 'By grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God; not of works, lest any man should boast.” —Dr. Bob Jones Sr., “Things I Have Learned: Chapel Talks,” page 223; Bob Jones University Press, ©1945
In Luke 13:5 Jesus said, “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” The context of this verse shows that they needed to repent or change their mind regarding punishment and sin. In this passage, Christ was talking to good people who believed that people suffered only because of their sins, and they concluded that those in Galilee whose blood Pilate mingled with sacrifices and those on whom the tower of Siloam fell were greater sinners because they died such horrible deaths. Jesus contradicts the thinking of these self-righteous people and tells them that they need to repent or change their mind and see themselves as sinners, too, or they will perish in their own self-righteousness. One does not have to know the Greek language to see that “repent” in this passage does not mean feeling sorry for or turning from sin.SOURCE: Pastor Curtis Hutson, an excerpt from his helpful booklet titled: 'Repentance: What Does The Bible Teach?'
The reason why America is going to Hell is because churches have been trained to hire graduates of Bible colleges. These damned Bible colleges cannot even get the Gospel right, because they cannot get the Bible right, because their hearts are not right with God. Bob Jones University in 2020 is a cesspool of iniquity—who promote multiple corrupt Bible revisions, and bid Godspeed to infidels like Dr. Steve Pettit and Pastor John MacArthur, and preach a perverse false gospel of Lordship Salvation. SHAME ON BOB JONES UNIVERSITY AND THEIR HERETICAL GRADUATES!!! Like cockroaches, infidels have crept into the college. Steve Pettit is nothing but a slick used car religious salesman in the pulpit, teaching the same damnable heresy as Seventh-Day Adventist prophetess' Ellen G. White!
Tragically, Bob Jones University is doing incalculable damage today to the churches. BJU is training thousands of impressionable students, to go out and preach a false gospel of Lordship Salvation. This is not Bible Christianity! No one sings as well, and dresses as nice, and talks as religious, as the unsaved Churches of Christ, who are not saved. Seventh-Day Adventists are nice people too, and prominent on good health, but are as lost as can be. Unsaved Jehovah's Witnesses, Roman Catholics and Mormons all teach that you must turn from your sins to be saved, just like John MacArthur, Dr. Steve Pettit, Ray Comfort and Marty Herron. Lordship Salvation is of the Devil.
Our churches are filled with tares today, many of them from Bob Jones University, because they have changed the Gospel of free grace into a nightmare, telling people that they cannot have God's free gift of eternal life unless they are willing to turn from their sins. Even if they try to gentle the blow with the less clear statement, “repent of your sins,” it is still not found in the Bible. It is a perversion of grace.
