Refuge of Lies
“Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.” (Isaiah 28:17)
Unsaved people lie to themselves. They build a refuge of lies and hide themselves.
They tell themselves they are:
1. Moral (good)
7. A baptized church member
8. Or an unbeliever
These perceptions give people a sense of security. “Religious” or “non-religious” people judge themselves “good,” “safe,” “all set,” and “okay” when in fact, according to the Bible, they are sinners who are lost and headed for Hell.
Every “religion” and “non-religious philosophy” propagates one or both of two lies regardless of the name of the “religion” or “philosophy,” namely;
1) People are basically good and need no one to "save" them
2) People can "save" themselves by doing good.
These two lies separate Jesus Christ, the Bible, and true Biblical Christianity from the ranks of “religion” and "philosophy." Jesus Christ taught man “there is NONE GOOD, NONE RIGHTEOUS, AND NONE THAT DOETH GOOD, NO NOT ONE” (Romans 3:10-12; Mark 10:18). Jesus taught that all men and women are sinners and need Him to "save" them.
Most people who think they are “Christian” and most people who altogether reject “Christianity” have no real understanding of the Biblical definition of either.
I am so glad that "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners." He found me and He saved me. He can do the same for you. Please read the following link and "get saved." Jesus is alive and able to save you today.
