John 14:6 KJV
Salvation by faith alone in christ alone
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way , the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.. - Jesus Christ
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 "Not of works, lest any man should boast."
8 True Salvation = Saved by God's Grace, through the Faith that God Gives us, in Christ alone. ANYTHING added to or taken from this simple message no matter how slight is a NON GOSPEL.
9 "Not of works, lest any man should boast."
YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO BE A GOOD CHURCH MEMBER TO BE SAVED. THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO MERIT OR WORK FOR YOUR SALVATION. It is a FREE gift of God.
Ephesians 4:30 KJV -
ETERNAL SALVATION OF THE BELIEVER -
There is nothing you can do to lose your salvation!
"And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption."
The only way to lose your salvation is to overcome God and remove His seal which is God Himself acting as Holy Spirit. Is is impossible to overcome God thus salvation cannot be lost.
1 Timothy 2:5 KJV
Prayers to be made only to/through Jesus Christ AND NO OTHER!
"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus." It is idolatry to pray to anything, or anyone, else including the so called pictures and statues of Jesus which are idols. No one has ever seen Jesus Christ to draw/paint Him and no one has ever photographed Him and even if they had, the picture/photos would still be idols
'Thou shalt have no other gods before me. 4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: 5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.'
Atheism = hating God and it isn't just a personal choice affecting only the hater.
Micah 5:13 KJV
Idols include work of the hands
Thy graven images also will I cut off , and thy standing images out of the midst of thee; and thou shalt no more worship the work of thine hands.
Furthermore, Pictures of Jesus Christ depict Him as sinful man because they show Jesus Christ with long hair in violation of His word in 1 Corinthians 11:14-15 Long hair on man prohibated - Women should have naturally long hair
14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? 15 But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering. Women should have naturally long hair and men should cut their hair. A woman's covering isn't a piece of cloth, a scarf or any other man-made thing. It is her hair that God gave her. These verse speak of the natural and thus it isn't a matter of length but that it should be allowed to grow as long as nature makes it to grow. Nature determines the length of her hair. She should not cut it.
5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. 8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.
