What must gays, like John Paulk, do to be saved?
Actually, they have to do the same thing everyone else has to do.
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. (Romans 10:9-10)
As many have said over the years: “Grace plus faith plus nothing equals salvation. Period.
The Lord has no special scriptural requirements about changing our life styles, confessing our sins, cleaning ourselves up, studying scripture, or anything so that we are readied to be saved. We just come as we are to Him. It’s His free gift, which is offered to all of mankind.
Okay! Okay! There’s a little more, but even that is done by Him.
No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day. (John 6:44)
Think of this: the Father draws us by His Spirit to His Son for eternal salvation. By His omniscience, the Father saw us on our worst days committing our worst sins, and yet He wanted us to be His children.
Thus, this means the Father saw gays giving their lives to the Lord and then some of them still continuing in their gay lifestyles. Yet, the Father still chose to draw them to His Son for eternal salvation.
Grace is mind-blowing stuff, right? And thank God for that!
