This is the Truth Network. Monday through Friday, Matt takes calls from all around the world on his radio show.

We've compiled this week's best, Matt Slick's Top 6. The majority of my co-workers believe Jesus is a black man, and they showed me some verses that I can apply, but I believe they took out a context when it had the word dark or the word black, you know what I'm saying? Yeah, I've heard that before, and it just doesn't work. My stance was on that Jesus is not white or black. None of us know what he is or what he was a Jew. Yeah, he's Jewish.

He probably was either whitish skinned or looked Arab-ish. That's what it would be. Number four. I just want to know your position on some of the more extreme lordship salvation features. Some people say lordship salvation just means that when Jesus is a savior in your life is manifested as such, that he's automatically the lord of your life in all areas. That's the lordship. Some say, and this is where it gets bad, lordship salvation means that he must be, and you need to make him, and submit to his lordship in every area of your life, and if you don't, you're not saved. And so the last part is where the danger is, because then it implies that you have to do something to maintain or achieve salvation, namely you have to make sure that Jesus is lord in your life. And this is legalism. Anyone who would hold to that has some serious problems.

I don't care who they are. That's a problem. But we're not saying that Jesus is not lord, of all of our lives. I'm certainly not saying that it's okay to sin, and we don't have to submit to Christ in all areas. Of course we do. But when they start saying in order to be saved, you must do these things, then that's a problem.

Number three. He is such a dear man, Matt, but he is very devout to Islam. So there are ways to witness to Muslims.

We can understand something. They're very devoted to their lie. They think what they believe in is true. And Islam provides a set of laws and ordinances that they have to follow.

And people like that because they want something tangible in which they can trust. And because people are sinful, they also often believe that they can earn their salvation through their goodness in cooperation with God's mercy, which is what Islam teaches. You say, look, you want to be saved from your sins, just like I do.

What must you do to have your sins forgiven so that your God will get you to heaven, a paradise? What Islam teaches is that salvation is not guaranteed unless you die in jihad, in battle for Allah. And a woman can't be saved unless I think it's four of her sons dying in jihad. This is what Islam teaches. Oh yeah, Islam is a pagan ungodly evil religion.

Number two. I have a hard time saying, really, am I really an elected person? All that I've done, all that, you know, it's hard to battle that. I think Satan comes in and tries to make you battle that in your mind. Like, really, you are elected?

Come on, man, you're not elected. And you know, and it's hard. He loves everyone equally. Like you said, you know, you got to be careful on the words to use because there's a translation and then there's reality. I was going to say, I'm totally smiling when you're talking. Totally. I am.

It's just peace because I asked the exact same stuff. Why? Why? How? It's just his good pleasure. That's it.

Number one. You know, what's interesting is people will accuse you and me, others like us, who submit to the teaching of election. We don't see why we're elected and chosen for salvation. Second Thessalonians 2, 13 says people are chosen for salvation. And they'll say, oh, you're arrogant. You think God picked you because of some good quality. You're prideful because you're one of the special.

It's the opposite. No, I'm not. I don't see why God would choose me. There is nothing good in me.

That's it. I'm just grateful for his mercy. Look at Paul. Look at all the people that we are similar to. But for the grace of God go I too.

There's a statement. I heard a preacher once say that and I really liked the statement. I'm glad that God predestined me from the foundation of the world because if he'd look at me now, he wouldn't have picked me. I just want my heart to be his power. Oh man, I'd love to hear stuff like that. You have no idea what that does to me.

Seriously. When I hear people talk like that, my heart just melts instantly to be in the hands of our Lord, to be the servants of our Lord, to be fellowship with our Lord because of his great grace and mercy. I just want to be an instrument in his hand. And you talk like that. It just, oh, it just warms me. I would love it if you were my neighbor.

You guys give up or you're thirsty for more. I always trust a guy named Matt Slick on the radio. We hope you've enjoyed this episode of Matt Slick's Top Six. For more on Matt and his live syndicated call-in radio show, go to TruthNetwork.com. Got a question?

Matt Slick has your answer. This is the Truth Network. Say what would you do if you were a new Christian and you didn't have a Bible? It's Michael Woolworth, by the way, from Bible League International. And you'd probably say, well, I'd hop in my car. I'd go to a Christian bookstore or have one shipped to me.

What if those weren't options? You'd say, well, I'm new to the faith. I mean, I need to know what it means to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus.

You know, you would pray that someone, anyone would bring you a Bible. And that's exactly the way it is for literally millions of Christians around the world. They're part of our spiritual family. They're new to the faith. They want to know what it means to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus. But God has them planted where it's very difficult to access a Bible. And that's why the Truth Network and Bible League have teamed up to send God's Word to 3500 Bible-less believers around the globe.

Our campaign is called The World Needs the Word. Five dollars sends a Bible. One hundred dollars sends twenty. Every gift matched. Make your most generous gift by calling 800-Yes-Word. 800-Yes-Word. 800-Yes-Word or give at TruthNetwork.com.
