Many churches present a salvation invitation or altar call that is not the complete gospel as given in the Bible. Baptismal regeneration is not the gospel in this Dispensation of Grace. The Apostle Paul warned us about other gospels and false gospels. These incomplete gospel messages do not result in eternal salvation for the person responding. If you take 100% TRUTH and tell it in PART, then it is no longer 100% TRUTH. Therefore  contend that the Gospel is PART can not yield Eternal Life. Christ said "it is finished", not "Part of it is finished". The following are some examples of the incorrect or incomplete salvation invitations, which religion and denominations speak. There are many ways (By man), but the only way is by Him (By Christ). Religion has maybe some parts of the truth. So does the Traditions of men. Denominationalism may even say a few verses of the truth here and there, however, if the truth is only in part, it is no longer the truth. In the time period we are now under, the Dispensation of the Grace of God, all men and women all over the whole earth are reconcilled unto God, that is, there is no difference anymore. There is no more Jew or Greek. There is no more Bond or Free. There is no more Male or Female.
We are are placed on the same level. Sin is not the issue any more. John the Baptist declared is John 1:29b KJV "Behold the
Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. " The barrier had been breeched when Christ took the sins of the world to the Cross. He took them all, everyone of them. Sin is no longer the issue, you see. The issue is
do you want to be saved? Are you saved? Are you truely saved? Lost people die and go to Hell every day, and they die with their sins all paid for. You will not hear this in religion, tradition, nor in the realms of mans denominationalism. It is not popular to teach the truth. It does not generate a whole lote of money, you see. So then, how does one get saved?


1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV "Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Galatians 1:8-12 KJV "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ."

Romans 4:25 KJV "Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification."

Romans 5:8-10 KJV "But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life."

Romans 10:9-11 KJV "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed."


Scripture does not teach that salvation is accomplished by having one's sins forgiven. Most Denominations teach the false doctrine of effectual forgiveness. They teach that sins are not forgiven until one believes Jesus died for their sins. Most Denominations believe that having one's sins forgive equates to being saved. The effectual forgiveness doctrine is not in the Bible. Actually, the Bible teaches just the opposite. While we were enemies of God (meaning unsaved) we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son. It does not require faith to be reconciled to God as many churches falsely teach. Reconciliation does not mean one is saved as these churches teach. It means the enmity between man of God as a result of Adam's transgressions has been reversed, and the sins of the whole world have been forgiven. One is saved by sincere faith in the bodily resurrection of Jesus. We are spiritually baptized with the filling of the Holy Spirit upon our salvation to eternal life, as well as spiritually circumcized (Soul is sealed and cut away from our sinful vile fleshly bodies).

Are the sins of all men everywhere totally and 100% forgiven?

Romans 4:25 KJV "Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification."

In Romans 4:25 we see the separation between the forgiveness of sin and salvation. Jesus was delivered up and crucified for the forgiveness of our sin, and He was raised from the dead to provide the way of salvation. The only sin which has not been forgiven is the sin of unbelief in Jesus Christ's death, burial, and resurrection (1 Cor. 15:1-4 KJV). This has been called by some as the "unforgivable sin."

Many churches teach Romans 10:13 as the gospel, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." This verse is a summation of the gospel as presented in Romans 10:9 "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." above but should not be presented as the gospel.

The correct and complete gospel is presented in the Bible verses at the top of this article, not in these common man-made church invitations. We are to have a deep faith and truly believe that Jesus was God in the flesh, conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, did the complete cross work, died on the cross for the sins of the whole world, buried in a borrowed tomb, resurrected by the Father on the third day in order to give us eternal life, and Jesus ascended to the right hand of the Father where He makes intercession for us.  Ephesians 2:8 KJV reads "For 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." 

Jesus said, Matthew 7:13-14 KJV "Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."

Jesus also said,  Matthew 7:22-23 KJV "Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.'"

Jesus said the way is "Strait" and "Narrow". Who are these people who say "Lord, Lord" that Jesus is referring to? They certainly are not atheists who will obviously spend eternity in the Lake of Fire. Jesus is talking about people who fail to understand His gospel. Jesus is talking about many people who attend church every Sunday but simply think inviting Jesus into their heart was the gospel. Jesus is talking about TV evangelists who beg for money and present an incomplete gospel message that leaves out the resurrection. Jesus is talking about people whose improper prayer is not heard by God. These people are all on the broad way that leads to destruction as Jesus promised.

Proverbs 14:12 KJV "There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death."

There is always a way, usually one at a time that seems okay to follow to each man. Through out life in general though, there are many different ways that get followed. In the end, which way will you be found in following?

1 Corinthians 2:2 KJV "For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified."

The Lord Jesus Christ, in His earthly ministry to the Jews said:

John 14:6 KJV "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
