There’s a term going around — called “Easy-Believism.” Have you heard of it? If not, just take a look at the results that you get from google-ing that term. It’s a term that’s mostly used in a negative way to fight a popular trend here in the US. Easy-believism deals with the age old question: “What must I do to be saved?” It seems that over time, many have boiled the answer down to accepting a set of beliefs. Is this all there is to it? — Just accepting a set of truths taught from the Bible?
Consider this short article a welcome to share your views in the comment thread below.
- The Bible is true.
- Mankind has a serious separation-from-God problem. That problem started in the Garden of Eden with the rebellion of man in disobeying God. As a result, our nature has become one that goes against God as evident by our continued natural behavior today.
(1). An Important Issue to Consider:
Are we made right in the sight of God from accepting some a set of spiritual truths? Are we adopted into the family of God based on mentally understanding and agreeing with a crucial set of beliefs? If someone has a correct understanding of Biblical teachings, is this all that is required in order to enter into the presence of God after death?
Can someone, who even believe correct doctrine, not meet the requirements of God necessary to enter heaven?
(2) Supporting your opinion.
If accepting correct beliefs alone is all that is required, what scriptures can you find that support this view?
If accepting correct beliefs alone are not all that is required, what scripturs can you find that support this view?
