Bible believers are not Christians. They are not followers and disciples of Jesus Christ. They are hypocrites. They believe that by their own knowledge of the Bible they can work out their own salvation, without Jesus Christ. The Jewish Pharisees were also a Bible believers. They believed in the Torah and the Prophets, but they did not believe nor accept Jesus Christ that the prophets prophesied about. They rejected Jesus Christ, the Messiah, that the prophets prophesied about. Jesus said to them:”You diligently search the scriptures, in there to find eternal life, but you refuse to come to Me to have life.” Jesus Christ is the way and the truth and the life.
The Bible is not the way Jesus Christ is The way the Bible is not the way to salvation. Jesus Christ and His words as recorded in the Bible, the Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, those are the words of eternal life, not the rest of the Bible. if you believe in Jesus and you obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, His words, then you will have eternal life. If you repent and turn away from your own ways, go after Jesus, obey Him, turn away from sin, turn away from following your own mind, repent of this world and the things of the world, go after Jesus, be baptized in water, seek Jesus with all your heart, He will come and dwell with you in you. He will make your new, He will give you His Spirit it to come and dwell in you. He will be with you, you will know Him for real.
Bible believers reject Jesus Christ, they reject the Holy Spirit that He gives in those who seek and who obey Him, and follow Him. They are Antichrist, the very same as the Jewish Pharisees that rejected and persecuted, and had a Jesus Christ crucified. The modern-day Bible believers also reject Jesus Christ in favor of the Bible, and they apply Bible scripture to their own liking to their own interpretation, and they think that they can justify themselves and have eternal life by their own interpretation of the Bible. The Bible cannot save you. Only Jesus saves, if you obey the gospel of Jesus Christ, if you believe in Him and seek Him with all your heart, obey Him, He will reveal Himself to you and you will know Him for real. If you trust in your Bible knowledge, you will perish in your sins, just like the Jewish Pharisees did. Only Jesus Christ can make you free, make you free from the bondage of sin.
Only Jesus Christ can take away the guilt of your past sin, but then you have to obey Him. Only Jesus Christ can guide you into the kingdom of heaven if you follow Him, if you obey Him, if you follow the guidance of His Holy Spirit, but if you stay with your Bible you will perish in your sins. Do you know and follow Jesus Christ or are you a Bible believer, a hypocrite, lost and deceived, trusting in your own insight and rejecting Jesus Christ? Jesus Christ is the only way. Seek Him and you will find Him.
May Jesus bless you.
