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. Number 5. Number 4. Number 5. Number 3.

Pre-Trib versus Post-Trib? Mm-hmm. And I guess I'm just trying to understand a little bit more, like, what to believe. Boy, I'm so tempted to say believe whatever Reverend Slick on the radio says, but I don't want to do that. My opinion is that post-tribulation is true, but that's my opinion, and it doesn't mean that I'm correct. If you go to Matthew 13, Jesus says that the first ones taken are the wicked.

Now, here's a question. If at the return of Christ the rapture of the good happens, then why does Jesus say at the end of the age, which is when he returns, the first ones taken are the wicked? The pre-trib rapture can't work with that model, and it can't work with mid-trib either. Furthermore, if you were to go to Matthew 24 and read, you'll actually see that they ask Jesus questions about, when's this going to occur? And he actually says after the tribulation of those days.

Number 2. How do we know that we'll have enough obedience and good fruit and good works to prove that you're actually saved? You don't.

Nothing. You don't have any. It's not your works that get you saved. It's your faith. The faith that God grants to you. God grants that you have faith, Philippians 1.29. And the faith that you have, he gives you to have in Christ Jesus. That's John 6.29. And Paul the Apostle says in Romans 4.5, to the one who does not work, but believes his faith is reckoned as righteousness. There's nothing you can do to prove it before God. But you have to understand that your salvation is not based on your goodness.

Number 1. You may say, as some do, well I believe, but how come I'm not as good as I think I should be in certain areas? That's the issue that most people are trying to talk about. What if there's a man who has a particular sin, and let's say every few months he falls into it, and he hates it. And he goes to Jesus each time and says, forgive me.

You know, I just messed up. And he repents. A few months later he falls into it again. And he goes to the cross again.

A few months later it happens again. And he asks God to give him the power to resist that particular sin. And for 50 years of his life, he never has complete victory over it. Now is the man saved?

Yeah. It's not his success over sin that makes him save. It's his faith in Christ, and his continued appeal to Christ.

And trust in Christ is the evidence of his salvation, not how well he does. I always trust a guy named Matt Slick on the radio. We hope you've enjoyed this episode of Matt Slick's Top Six.
