Re: Does one have to go to church to be saved?

That raises a good point m- 2x2s never know whether they are saved until after they die – even though God said (through Paul) that one is saved when one believes the gospel – when one believes that God the Son died for his/her sins, was buried and was resurrected on the third day. The faith (trust) in God that most 2x2s have is that shaky that it is no wonder they do not good works – dead faith at best.
And this again raises an interesting point. In spite of never being sure of being saved, 2x2s preach that people have to attend only THEIR church (to hear the 2x2 ‘gospel’ from the mouths of workers) in order to have a chance of getting saved after death. They do read the Bible, but this is the limb they put themselves on in spite of what God said about how people are saved and all the assurances God gives in His word. If 2x2s trusted God, they could KNOW they are saved as soon as they believe that God the Son died for their sins, was buried and was raised on the third day – because God says so in His word and He doesn’t lie.
I’ll tell you this, if it were necessary to go to a church to be saved (and it isn’t) the last church on earth I would go to would be a church that taught that one can never know he/she is saved until after death. I trust what God said in His word completely, and His Spirit witnesses with my spirit that I am saved in spite of any church I attend.
