FAQ's and Mythbusters

 

 

                                            

1. Is it true that when tithes and donations come into a church, 10% of each member's tithes go to the District?

     ~ NO, this is incorrect!  10% of all tithes and donations go to the district annually and is not monitored, maintained, or divvied out per member registration.  It is based solely on the sum total, not a per member basis.

 

2. Once I ask Jesus into my heart, can I lose my salvation based on my behavior, thoughts, or deeds?

      ~ NO, this is incorrect!  The Bible teaches us in Ephesians 1:13 that our salvation is sealed, we cannot lose it.  We are new beings (2nd Corinthians 5:17).  Salvation is a one time event!  However, turning our minds and will over to God, is a daily event!

 

3. What is Faith?

     ~ That is really a great question.  Let's get visual.

*You're driving on a two lane freeway with lots of scenic twists and turns .  Now keep in mind this is a steep hill, and there is a line of cars behind you.  You want to pass, but cannot see around the truck in front of you.  It's simply too risky.

 

The man driving the truck waives you by.  You trust that he is going to keep you safe, but do you really have any idea whether this is true?

 

 

 

 

This is faith.  It's simply taking someone at their word.  With God, it's the same thing.  It is taking God at his Word.

"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1 King James Version (KJV)

We can always trust and rely on God to keep His Word.
