All the Way Down Romans Road (Season 7, Episode 8)

“Romans Road” is a way of teaching the scheme of redemption by going through verses in the book of Romans. It is an invention of the denominational world and is used by many today. In this episode, we are going to examine this “Romans Road” – what it is, how it is useful, and how those who teach it do not go far enough.

Calling on the Name of the Lord (Season 7, Episode 7)

Calling on the Name of the Lord (Season 7, Episode 7)

The Scriptures plainly teach that calling on the name of the Lord results in salvation. Nowhere is this affirmed more plainly than in Romans 10:13 – “For ‘Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.’” I would imagine that the vast majority of professing Christians believes that we must call on the name of the Lord in order to be saved. The point in which we have controversy is how we call on His name.

Many believe this calling is done verbally. But what does the word of God teach?

Can One Earn His Salvation? (Season 7, Episode 6)

For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast” (Ephesians 2:8).

Often, when one teaches that obedience is necessary for salvation, he is accused of teaching that we earn our salvation. Passages like the one above are sometimes cited as “proof” that there is nothing we must do to be saved. But is it even possible for salvation to be earned? Is it possible to live in such a way that God owes us a home in heaven? We will discuss this idea in this episode.

Grace, Faith, Works (Season 7, Episode 5)

Grace, Faith, Works (Season 7, Episode 5)

For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them” (Ephesians 2:8-10).

Even though the topic of salvation is shown to be of fundamental importance in the Scriptures, there is sharp disagreement between brethren and the religious world about it – particularly about the role that grace, faith, and works play in our salvation. Many in the religious world believe that we are saved by grace through faith without any works on our part. In other words, they believe salvation is unconditional (unless they count faith as a condition, but that would be the only one). The passage above is often cited to defend this idea. Yet as we will see from the Scriptures, all three of these – grace, faith, and works – are necessary for our salvation.

The Gospel in the Same Words as Peter Preached It

Walter Scott – The gospel as Peter preached it

Walter Scott (1796-1861) was one of the early preachers of the gospel in Northeast Ohio and did much to advance the cause of the ancient gospel in that area. In the book, Buckeye Disciples, author Henry K. Shaw noted that without the contributions of Walter Scott in proclaiming the gospel, “it is doubtful if the movement would have gained such momentum in a few years” (p. 45).

However, this “momentum” was not wholly due to the ability or zeal of men like Scott. Many people at that time were waking up to the idea that the gospel that was preached by the apostles was not the same message as the one being proclaimed by denominational preachers. Notice the following example of an individual named William Amend:Continue Reading

What Must I Do to Be Saved? (Season 7, Episode 3)

This is the most important question one may ask. The answer to it is found in the gospel. If one wants to know what to do to be saved, he simply needs to look to the gospel and do what it teaches. Paul boldly affirmed, “I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek” (Romans 1:16).

“What must I do to be saved?” Our soul’s salvation depends upon us getting the right answer to this question and acting upon it. God has given us the answer in His word.
