American Christians, as a whole, have jettisoned the true gospel. Many teach that we can still be saved even if we love the world and walk according to our own understanding. But the gospel of Jesus Christ requires us to die to our sin in order to be born again. Has the supernatural work of God transformed you into a new creature in Christ? Or have you just used a little bit of Jesus spray paint to gussy up the old man? Has it hit you yet that you are going to be judged by your works–and the only way to be saved is to allow Christ, by faith, to make you and your works really righteous?
