The following program is recorded content created by the Truth Network. So what exactly do we need to believe about Jesus be right with God's time for the light a fire with your host scholar and cultural commentator Dr. Michael Brown your voice for more spiritual clarity called 866-34-TRUTH to get on the line of fire and now there's your host Dr. Michael Brown sack in order to be quote saved in order to be forgiven in order to come into right relationship with God in order to be with him forever.

Since the just will live by faith. What is it that we are supposed to believe about Jesus. It is it okay to believe that he was just a good man. Is it okay to believe that he was a prophet. Is it okay to believe that he was the son of God, but he is a created being, must one believe in the Trinity to be saved must one believe in the deity of Jesus to be saved this with talk about today as we focus on theology this Tuesday Michael Brown delighted to be with you, and you can weigh in. Here's number to call 866-34-TRUTH 866-34-TRUTH eight 784 the end of the show yesterday. I said that we were to be talking probably about some millennial topics today and looking about the debate on that, but as as we shifted in a realist also had a guess that was going to come on at 330.

I wanted everything to kind of going the same direction. Hence this topic but we are be exploring in the Tuesdays ahead a bunch of theological controversies not the goal of getting people all upset during his on tuna next week and yelled somebody but to get more light than he that this is one of these shows where there is a dividing line. In other words, there will be a show we may talk about pretrip rafter versus poetry rapture or last week we talked about whether or not God continues to speak to his people outside of through the Bible alone right and and that's a debate in-house to talk about today. There is a dividing line between saved and lost between eternal truths and dangerous error. So, we will draw that line as clearly as we can. Based on Scripture why we city Jehovah's Witnesses or occult as opposed to part of the body. Will there are many reasons for but one is their denial of the deity of Jesus and viewing him as a created being so I want to make an initial statement that will give you some Scripture to consider right I do not believe that you can be in right relationship with God that you can be in his family as a forgiven child of God. If you simply believe that Jesus was a created being. If he's a created being. We cannot worship him if he's a created being. We cannot pray to him as Lord.

If he's a created being, even calling him Lord means. Now there is competition between him and the worship that should go to the father alone knelt there many people who are not clear about what they believe in and my view of God lives in the Scriptures that God is not sitting there was some hammers like okay did you get it just you just missed it. You wassup but just missed it and and and you give your theology and God pulls out the Nicene Creed that they secreted you didn't quite say it right. To hell with you know that's the son who our God is the son or goddess is not just looking for correctness ease is looking for a heart that loves him his infra heart that worships him his infra heart that will serve him and trust in them.

So you need to know who he is and on what basis Jesus had the power to die for our sins now clearly through the Bible is the father who is primarily identified as God and the father sends his son into the world and appoints him to be Lord. That is the primary testimony of Scripture dislike John 316 that God gave his son Peter's message next to 36. The culmination of his of his message to shovel at Pentecost was Jewish audience, but all the house of Israel know that this you sure this Jesus whom you crucified God has made Lord and Messiah. So the primary witness of the New Testament is not to declare that Jesus is God, but to declare that he is Messiah and Lord. At the same time. When we look at the larger picture that is painted about who he is. There's no question as as I understand Scripture as it is the question. Many will debate this but to me there's no question that he is identified as eternal and uncreated deity.

Now let me say this again you may be unclear, you may not be entirely shy. I don't get this Trinity thing I'm still trying to met wrap my mind around it or I will you talk about the eternal begetting of the so what does that even mean eternally begotten that you have a beginning or not these begotten as a beginning is that different than created what is it mean those are all legitimate questions. Those are all fair questions and I do not believe that God is sitting there to repeat with some Kenna Hammond is going to come crashing down on you or me. If we don't quite fully understand. At the same time. If we have a view of Jesus view of the sun that he is merely a created being, and you deny his deity. So would you say I understand the issues and I say that he is a created being, and I deny his eternal existence, or worse still believe he is just a glorified man.

There was, he was preexistent at all Jehovah's Witnesses that he was Michael the Archangel's was preexistent creation, but not deity, not eternal deity, in which case they would have two gods because there is a John 11 translated the word was a godsend and they have two gods, the big G God of the small G God, which is that of other gods before God that result because of the problems. Some even worse simply say that he was a glorified man. He did not exist until he was birthed by Miriam Mary and he is simply a glorified man that is even more heretical.

But let me let me give you a fundamental Scripture that points to the deity of the son, and why we must recognize that in order to be saved in order to be in right relationship with God. So Romans the 10th chapter you know well that the Scripture says, verse 11. Everyone believes in him will not be put to shame.

One of the verses before that. What is that the word of the gospel.

Verse nine 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 safe with the heart one believes and is justified with the mouth one confesses and is saved now again this is not simply is not simply empty words.

The words as it is an intellectual confession went without a heart joined with it right. It's heart and mind together, but the confession of Yeshua as Lord means a couple of things. First, it means that he is King he is the ruler. He is the one that you submit your life to write. He he is Lord and we are his servants. One day I was meditating in prayer and saying okay you are you are the shepherd machine you're the father on your son.

You are the warrior chief. The man of warmth, soldier. You are Lord I am slave I am your servant.

That's not how we really relationally. We are children vocationally.

We are bond slaves so we are making that declaration you are Lord. Therefore, my life is submitted to. Therefore I cannot just go out live.

However, one live, the idea that you have Jesus as Savior and others Lord is completely on biblical completely un-biblical is not a stitch of biblical logic or biblical evidence that supports that in fact in the New Testament, Jesus is called Lord over 400 times is called Savior about 15 times is completely off base and you can't separate his lordship from his saving work.

The one who saves you is the Lord said again this notion that you can have Jesus as Savior and not as Lord is complete nonsense. It is unscriptural.

It is illogical and bifurcate's the son of God in a way that the Bible simply does not. It would be like on your your wedding vows yet you can have me as husband but not as your exclusive lover because I'm interested know the women walked know having you as my husband and he was my wife that that means that we are not bound together, husband and wife bound together as one.

Making a lifelong pledge of fidelity to one another is what that means. So when we confess him as Lord is not just a theological statement is a statement of loyalty is a statement of obedience, so I'm not saved because I stopped doing bad things started through good things because awful infinitely short of God's standard always fall short likes like Spurgeon said it it it's is like trying to clean the floor but it's a dirt floor was dirty with the more you brush it, the dirtier it gets is is a dirt floor. That's the condition of our heart outside of God's grace we are saved by putting our trust in the Lord to save us. But the same as being saved from sin to obedience, but it is not only a statement of obedience is also a statement of truth, he is not just a man. He is not just a prophet. He is not some enlightened group or yogi. He is Lord God has appointed him Lord, since this is a goddess appointed him God quite goddess appointed him Lord but the Lord is also God and God is the Lord meaning that when I confess him as Lord I'm acknowledging his supremacy and and remember in in Jewish thinking.

One of the most sacred prayers you pray every day is called the Shema from from Deuteronomy 6 of your traditional GU pray to stay with eyes closed, Shema Yisrael a denial of pain organized, hero Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one, or the Lord is our God, the Lord alone and that confession of him as Lord is an identification with the eternal deity Philippians the second chapter. Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess with that coming from. That's a quote from Isaiah 45 that tells us every knee will bow to Yahweh every tongue will confess to him.

This is now applied to Jesus every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus the Messiah is Lord, to the glory of God the father. So either you've got competition here. You've got people worshiping Jesus praying to Jesus saying they love Jesus, confessing him as Lord, and you have gobbled it, rebounds to his glory or you have one God father son and Spirit in the father appoints the son as Lord and as we worship Jesus the Lord, we are worshiping God is no competition. There is no dichotomy here. I could give you a number of the Scriptures. Of course, of course, indicating the, the, the eternal deity of the son of God, and I will do some of that on the inside of the break, but if you believe that you can be safe while denying the deity of Jesus. Give me a call. Tell me what 866-34-TRUTH you think that's an unnecessary theological addition.

In terms of the deity of Jesus again this is not just academic theory if if he was a human being if he was simply human being even a really good human being doesn't have the power to die for the sins of the world. Even if you even if you manage somehow fit to live without sin. For 30 something years, which of course would've been impossible, but even evenly found a way to do it.

Barbara virgin found a way to do it without being divine that the seven power him to pay for the sins of the entire human race multiplied billions of people over multiplied millennia of course not. So it it doesn't make spiritually logical sense. There not only so, the way he is exalted in the New Testament book in Revelation 5 when every created being in heaven and earth worships him the Lamb and the father they both receive that worship, that would be idolatry if he's not the son of God and for Thomas to call him my Lord and my God. In John 2028 for Jesus to say you got finally you got it. That would be idolatry that would be having other gods when when the father. Revelation 1 identifies is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end of the words as the only uncreated, eternal being. And then Jesus uses the same words about himself. In Revelation 22 is silly that he too is uncreated and that's why he has the power to die for all of us and that's why this right that we worship him and even pray to him.

Although primarily our prayers are directed to the Father through him and and when John 11 speaks of him as deity.

And when John 858 Jesus says himself before Abraham was, I am those are words of deity speaking is or was he just cannot say I'm God will that could be misleading.

Does that mean he is the father son and Spirit does that mean that God in heaven does not exist doesn't mean that the Holy Spirit working throughout the universe does not exist. The set mean that that if you kill this physical being that you kill God and even to say that could be so fraught with misunderstanding. In John one.

Is nuance the word was God. The word became flesh, so this eternal word now becomes flesh so so these these things are laid out clearly in Scripture.

Even his authority to forgive on earth ties in with his deity, so it's not just abstract again when I came to faith assure this many times I can understand any of this. I I pray to God to forgive my sins I believe Jesus died. We rose from the dead, was he himself God was there Trinity. I'd no clue and I was deathly safe deftly born again and then over time learning the rest in the weeks and months that followed learned arrest and ever since that is Bendix exploration of the massive person of God that continues to bring me to worship as he transcends my understanding so I am not saying that you have to understand it all to be safe and for many Jews it's a process. When they come to faith to get to that point of understanding of the size deity, and eternal existence, and our call to worship and follow him as God, so it can take time to process that. But to deny his deity to say he is a created being means is not worthy of worship, meaning that he would be a substitute Lord for the only God that I be given devotion to him that long only to God and that would therefore be idolatrous. So I do not see how someone can deny his eternal deity and say he is merely a created being and be in right relationship with God. To be truly safe. I said earlier broadcast safe close that everyone uses that terminology even though it is typical terminology for less point than go to the phones less point when it comes to recognizing who he is. It is as we been saying theological and practical right it is right understanding of who he is, as well as now how I follow him and serve him. You may be a Jehovah's Witness and you really don't understand your system right and somehow you came to genuine faith in the midst of a cult. You may be a more minute and somehow you came to genuine faith in the midst of occult you. You may be part of some of the group that has some weird talkative and heretical doctrine but you you came to faith in the midst of occult what keep moving forward and get out of that cult so that you can fully embrace the truth with the people of God I cannot believe you have to sign the Nicene Creed or the Athanasian Creed to be safe. I cannot believe that you need to affirm every detail of that or say. I have full understanding of the Trinity keep on making here is the rejection of the idea of the deity of Jesus who said I was just any trouble getting how he comes forth with father. Okay fine that that's not the big issue here is that the of him being a created being where we draw the line. All right, let's go to the phones.

866-34-TRUTH will start in Virginia with James welcome to the line of fire. Thanks for calling thanks or I believe the deity of Christ where I get a little confused is you know there's there's no way to the father except by me and you and I I imagine like you know a young applicant child who has never had the opportunity to learn about Christ are they going to hell and let that Mother Teresa was Jewish and she did everything that she did. I know it works doesn't get you to heaven, but it still doesn't always fit well with me that she'd be in hell in the other question I was gonna make more. The question is when Jesus was dying on the cross, father, for they know not what they do. Who was he forgiving and what was he forgetting art with the forgiving somebody standing there not going to ever believe in him work with a forgiven on the spot and they make it to heaven or lets people know James, I'm just I'm just jumping in, because you have a break and I will make sure I can answer as best as I can write to answer the second question first in context. Jesus is talking about those who crucified him. In Luke 23 so contextually that's restrung by those crucifying him. And it doesn't mean that they are now saved or forgiven of almost all their sins is simply asked them don't don't condemn them for doing this so that that they didn't really know they were crucifying the son of God, so he sent God.

Don't hold this against the melt there still just as lost as they were before their still justice far from God as they were before super they want they want in right relationship with God, but that one sin is not can be held against them. That is not gonna be the thing that we you crucified me say no father forgive them and then he showing his heart on a broader level to everyone that was responsible for his crucifixion, but in context he's asking forgiveness for those directly involved as to the question of what about the religious Jew that's is devoted is anyone you know is God-fearing, is anyone you know and is rich in good works. Is anyone that you know what about that person. Is it possible that an end. The only Jesus they know is the Jesus in their mind of the Holocaust of the Inquisition, the Crusades and and in Jewish tradition that attacks him so they really are in ignorance. It should bother us. It should hurt us that that person could be lost. I leave every individual before God. In other words, I can't tell you the state of that person. God knows I can tell you the state of the theoretical Mother Teresa. I have to say she was Jewish right. God knows so that's the first thing and if you could might might take is this.

If you can be good enough to get in without God's mercy than all the more power to you.

But as I understand it, none of us are good enough, and all of us need his mercy. If we reject that mercy were lost, but we never heard of it, God will deal with everyone fairly and justly, but for sure the finest person on the planet could not get in without the mercy of God through Jesus. If we knowingly rejected a certain loss will be right back to you lost there a lot of different views about Jesus by not more. We come back to the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown got on the line of fire by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown.

We have been surely must believe about him to be in right relationship with God pivot a little, but not entirely, as I bring on Dr. you Ross, astronomer, founder and president of reasons to believe been a guest on the show many times if you've never visited there is a treasure trove of material waiting for you and for your kids as well. People of all ages and backgrounds, Dr. Ross, great to have you back on the broadcast. With thanks for joining us. Your Michael that every time you been on here. We we talked about science and the Bible. We've talked even about the theology of Scripture in light of science and it it's always enlightening, but I understand you've got yogis and gurus on your mind these days.

So what talking about this outlier on our work great public record. Well, you go to the party.

And I will regard all of the aerobic training property and your readers are people in China and prologue your credit claim guarded the way I think the universal idea doesn't matter what religion you follow. So the question came up about this yet, there are traditions that make this claim it in your view, we each know where we stand here, but will will will just flesh this out here in your view, is there any reliability to these traditions is there any historical attestation that the Jesus actually travel outside of of what we call Israel today. Trouble outside of that to either India or war China and and got special enlightenment.

There are over decorate her Dr. Newkirk violent, like computer between the age of 12 in the age of approximately 30 or greater of 18 years, we can speculate, but execute. Carefully protect make the point number one she was in a poor family did not report their business with her to make a trip to India, for example. Moreover, it kept the Jewish law detector commitment to the Jewish holiday in particular technics but for the unit family went up to Jerusalem every year to celebrate Passover. That doesn't ready.

Given the current art to make a trip to India and back, nor did he have to resort to make the trip dinner plates with speculation or that they will. Didn't Jesus teach more like the same thing. While a lot of what he taught carbon copy of the simple reason, great start. God's Holy Spirit, Oracle, light and crude on all human thoughts, not depriving the element of the law. For example, element of the 10 Commandments. All the different religions of the world you look carefully at what talking the integrative property to different borrow similarity yet it is just like ancient Eastern creation accounts you may have a parallel here or there but you compare it to Genesis 1 of the biblical creation accounts and it's comparing light with darkness that that's what I just told him it was the more you compare the more the Bible stands out.

You wonder where is the biblical authors get this from where they get this revelation of of one dog, one got only if if we look at, say, so I John 14 six where Jesus is on the way, the truth of life.

No one comes to the father except through me.

Or we write in it and in understanding that in terms of X exclusivity and wouldn't that be the opposite of somebody's universe. Universalistic claims. Water universal anyone in the world.

People like to go to an instructor.

Every human being like drawing to find the perfect article, combination, or God log crude and life revolving feet that the current degree through the book of nature and the productivity responded. God will give more like control everyone is heard but not everyone believed that what you fear and indirectly, for example, the fundamental principle everything reincarnate University incarnate the physical pickup reincarnate animal reincarnate plant human in the Bible for the exact opposite is given unto men once to die, and that the judgment there is no cycle, no second or third We need to make the best of the floodlight.

God is given a result for me, reject compassion for the poor. What I've noticed in the Hindu culture of the people are willing to intervene to help someone in a lower calf.

Think of it due to their dinner ruin their second chance in the next life, but you only got one chance to help the poor to help manage light, so you're interfering with, because they did something wrong in the previous life that has the demoted to begging on the streets so that the big on the streets and let them do it well, except their fate and they come back and in the next world in a better state. What would you say then there's not a real concept of grace in Hinduism here in America from prematurity to Christianity or conflict that we undergird favor from God, your God… Jerking or predict good or bad.

Judging out based on what we've done but the author, the creator of the universe offer to deliver lubricant delivery fell effort to separate Christianity from all the other religions of the world.

And what about Buddhist teaching of the teaching from the Far East.

The sum of the concept of sin were personal God is there. But what's been happening in the 21st century again. I made a good doctor on call for the pandemic Brandenburg router and Buddhism log time I ran into the back that believed in salvation by grace alone, believe that you want… But Dr. Barton felt Paula Burton believed in the doctrine of the Trinity basically co-opted all the doctrine of Christianity, but remember engaging thing. Where did you get these teachings and they readily admitted to guarded the Christianity of the Bible, but they were still identifying his Buddhists extort the department of motor… I could find a rather rigorous doctrinal statement and evangelical Christian community. But what products are put them on our you are aware contradict the teachings of Buddha is a bright but football we picked up the good from the bad girl tells me there's an opportunity for Craig. Given that they have the increased current modus operandi. Maybe we can turn a push for a little bit of audio.

I'm glad you're willing to drop bad every fetus.

But the good but pursue that perfumery under yeah obviously missionaries on the front lines of wrestled with many of these things and resistance. But God doesn't work in the does plant things into the hearts and minds and little by little. Sometimes they have to be weaned and then they have the. The major major breakthrough. What one other thing when when you look at, and Hinduism.

What message does it have for the people what's with the club into India 27 times that of had many many conversations with believers. There are nonbelievers there and it still kind of mystifies me. I know that you got brilliant people involved in Sanskrit scholars and all this in a very deep spiritual thought, but I I don't get the appeal of it at have you been able to understand that your character. Here we are log reader critic number headquartered in India got a lot of treatment India during the pandemic. Through what I've noted that your lottery injured reading and for Christianity that are in the stem career door engineering neurology five.

And the reason why an individual teacher that you got all these God independently involved in creation and therefore the anticipated that when you study fire all kinds of incongruities of the lack of homogeneity and uniformity.

However, when you study fire 2 feet exact opposite and ready to cut the five finger plan finger unity single creator. No surprise a lot of educated speculative educated in science and engineering are coming to faith in Christ. I mean, I didn't event in India a few months back I was sponsored by the BIA and with the church of the inscrutable algorithm in virtually the entire church populated by engineers and planted including the chairman of the five department at the local university on the University that were are being that thing away and perking them you actually studied Hinduism before looked at the Bible and what turned me off and put food on reincarnation southbound universe reincarnate every 4.32 billion year as young astronomy student I knew the number was wrong, but also do. There is no way given the entropy measure the universe, but it could ever rebound into a second of the day. Universe of one beginning and only one beginning and bell people in India are becoming aware of all strongly evident big bang cosmology that. It's very very interesting. You know, when I looked at polytheistic counts and policy is in terms of creation of looked terms of the actual the biblical text is another scientist are the strongest of my whole orientation is the ancient world and the text there and then preaching the gospel from Scripture, but you coming out of fruit from this viewpoint.

Absolutely fascinating and the CIA that that's extraordinary hate. We've got a minute what's new on on already rearing. Read: raving fine. Good coverage. Targeted creditor. Briefly, the one that really blew me away. Your wife. Good for the planet have to be on a planet virtually identical to your word. Remove magnetic Bureau coupled with the earth magnetic Bureau and only pick up a couple big evil spirit, prevent water in the active peer.

Sputtered away from the young fun that the habitability requirement but basically eliminate everything except the plan abroad physically make this just happened by coincidence.

This just happened to a Dr. Ross, always fascinating talking to you. Thanks for joining us friends check it out. You'll be amazed at what you find.

Thanks for joining us are like that is the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown get on the line of fire by calling 866342 here again is Dr. Michael Brown pumped up with truth, pumped up with edifying quotes pumped up with truth from Scripture. Michael Brown thanks for joining us on the line of fire. I I want to read some quotes and some sections from my 1993 book, it's time to rock the boat called God's people rise up and preaching confrontational gospel and it is the chapter called the Savior is the Lord everything that we've been on today. The Savior is the Lord when I had coded my doctor recommended one day that I got some fluids so we just call some local place the country house and they they get your IV and then they put certain fluids in you that are just help in a helpful and healthy and rejuvenating and so wanting and getting hydrated properly and is a vitamin B etc. to just add to energy and what what I felt like during the break is I was looking at some of these quotes.

There are two minute break was it's just take this is spiritually were just pumping these beautiful truths enter on that that there's a spiritual IV is remember here to see you healthy and thriving in every way.

We were here to see you spiritually reinvigorate and strengthen it personally revives that the fire and you can spread to others so that that yoke that that is on so many is that as they get healthier and spiritually fatter in the right says Boehm your brakes off what Spurgeon said I cannot conceive possible for anyone truly received Christ as Savior, and yet not to receive him as Lord.

Mentors really saved by grace does not need to be told that he is under solemn obligations to serve Christ, the new life within them tells him that instead of regarding it as a burden.

He gladly surrenders himself body soul and spirit to the Lord, who has redeemed 10 reckoning this to be his reasonable service. Amen. Pastor Spurgeon, John Bunyan. Her ears before Spurgeon said this Christ as Savior is not divided he that hath him. Not in all shall have him in none of all none at all of his offices in his saving manner so the riches it will have a Savior that is Lord does not divided. If you have is all you don't have him as any I wrote this, Jesus came to save his people from their sins. That's the heart of the gospel is true that he came to save us from hell. But hell was that her primary problem.

Hell is only the consequence of the problem. Sin is the great problem of human race. Jesus came to free us from our sins. That is what his name is all about.

So, Miriam, Mary, she will give birth to a son, and you are given the name Jesus Yeshua because he will save his people from their sins. And of course Yeshua related to the root for salvation. Anything less than that is not salvation. Anything less than that is not our Savior. That's what he came, bled, died and rose from the two free us from our sins.

So maybe you been taught I get saved to avoid hell yes that's that's part of it. We don't want to perish.

We don't want to be destroyed by God.

We don't want to go into eternal punishment.

Absolutely not to be rejected forever and forfeit eternal life. Absolutely we don't want that to happen and we are being saved from that.

But we are being safe from that because were being saved from our sins. Aggressive forces were not safe now.

If Jesus doesn't fit with our sin problem is I giving us a ticket into heaven, full of sin full of uncleanness bound by Satan and living in rebellion as I was. Salvation is we are saved from our sins that will reach total perfection in this world is World War III, we are we are freed from the diminutive sensor that we now live to do the will of God clean and obedient from the heart by God's grace and that debt of sin. Remove look look at what the Scripture say John the Mercer sees Jesus. John 129 look, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

Roman 66. We know that our old self was crucified with him was Jesus that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin. You have to be a slave if you're a follower of Jesus, and you're still bound until you the power of God within you can give you victory. I'm telling you, if you are still a slave and every single day you find yourself falling prey to the same sin. There is a better life that God has for you.

In Jesus first Peter 224 he himself bore our sins in his body on the tree so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness by his wounds you have been healed. This is pretty clear. God's intent. Revelation 15 and six. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood. Yeah, that's the gospel first with his 1517 if Christ is not been raised, your faith is futile. You are still in your sins. That's why when Paul talks about the receive risk within 69.

Colossians 113 and 14. He's rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the son he loves, and we have redemption and forgiveness of sins is with Scott's evangelist James Alexander Stewart said years ago. We are saved from a life of sin to a life of holiness, salvation is more than a passport to heaven is deliverance from the dominion of sin in this life. So salvation is not just forgiveness or go to heaven. Salvation is salvation from sin. Forgiveness from the guilt of sin and empowerment to break the bondage of sin. That's what salvation is all about. But here's the simple thing the Savior is the Lord, the one who saves us is the Lord Jesus save me Lord from my sins. I confess you as Lord is not either or, is that there is no salvation outside of Jesus and there is no Jesus outside of his Lordship over he came to serve and to die for sins, but he is always or remains Lord and every knee will bow to him and confess him as Lord since earlier in the show but he's called Lord she was called Lord more than 400 times in the New Testament and is called Savior 15 times in the entire New Testament that was renamed Jesus related to solve it so tearing great.

He's called that 15 times MUC Lord and Savior in the same sentence. General order is Lord first Savior. Second is our Lord and Savior Jesus was listening to the call of Scripture right it is to turn from sin and to turn to God to turn away from disobedience and to turn to God in obedience how, by the grace of the Lord. We can't do it on our own. We can earn it. Okay, I'm gonna get good for silver surely gospel song Miller drug addict may be there in Symbicort business and and you talk to the silica.
