Events such as the Time Square car attack that occurred on Thursday, May 18, killing one and injuring more than 20, as well as the suicide bombing at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England following an Ariana Grande concert on Monday, May 22, killing 23 and injuring in excess of 120, remind us that we live in a fallen world that is susceptible to suffering and evil. Sometimes it can be difficult to reconcile the existence of God with the presence of evil. For centuries the question has been posed: if God is good and in control of this world then why does He allow so much evil and suffering to occur?
In this week’s article, we will pick up where we left off last time concerning the loopholes that people often invent regarding SALVATION. Let’s examine another of these popular loopholes:
LOOPHOLE #2 – “The Bible says that all I have to do is believe in Jesus to be saved, so that’s all I’m doing.”
Does what we wear matter? Yes, because Scripture clearly indicates that the people of God should dress “with modesty” in 1 Timothy 2:9. But that leads to another question, what is modesty?
In this series, we are taking a look at some of the manmade “loopholes” that we often fabricate when it comes to our Christianity. We have looked at the categories of WORSHIP and RELATIONSHIPS so far, and today we turn our attention to the area of SALVATION.
