Here is another short take the Christian worldview with David, when is this man Ravi Zacharias who spoke about God eloquently about God, was he actually right with God, was he actually born again and the question is not how could a Christian sin, all Christian sin, but Christians according to Scripture, don't practice sin without repentance is not a habitual characteristic of their life. They may send the medicine for a time but then they come to confess and repent of it when they realize they've sinned against God, not the question here was she actually saved because it appears that he was practicing sin that Ravi Zacharias understood the gospel I will play another soundbite here were she talks about that our greatest need in life is for forgiveness that is really the heart of the gospel that were sinners and we are greatest need is forgiveness from the God who created us, that will be or just judge some day and that forgiveness can only be given through the person in the work of Jesus Christ in our behalf. Here's Ravi Zacharias message is this unique thing we call forgiveness at the heart of the message is this unique thing we call forgiveness. I dare you to look at any other worldview. I don't even need to name them. Look at any pantheistic worldview. Look at any other monotheistic worldview and you will find out one way the all the other you are in the balances and is one of them will say your righteous deeds outweigh your righteous deeds in the pantheistic worldview. It is, you pay you pay you pay one way or the other you pay the Christian faith is unique, giving you the joy and the beauty of forgiveness at one of the most exorbitant prices. The very son of God says I forgive you. I forgive you your member the same Jim Baker who is the helm of BTL years ago and that Empire fell so sadly is about six in the morning when I heard the in the 80s and I was heading out play a game of racquetball. When I turned it on and heard that news I pulled up on the side of the road as it is to change the landscape for evangelicalism for sure and forgive falling off your shoulders like them comes to the hill and the first angel of long says that I send in the back back burden of sin falls off again that's Ravi Zacharias and that is literally haunting to listen to knowing what his life turned out to be, and I just pray before he met God after his death that she had repented of the grievous sin that he had been conducting in his life, but you can see from that that soundbite there that she understood the gospel he understood that all the religions are all about working to attain forgiveness from God and whereas true biblical Christianity is not our own work, but the work of Jesus Christ in our behalf putting our faith in his work on the cross and not our own works. So he understood that, so how does someone who understands the gospel and professes to believe in Christ. It was he actually right with God that I don't think we can know the answer to that for sure because we can't know what is believing in his heart for sure.

But the Bible does say clearly that those who practice sin unrepentant only will not inherit the kingdom of God, perhaps, that the scariest passage in all Scripture Matthew seven, part of the sermon on the Mount by Jesus. She says this. Not everyone who says to me Lord Lord will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my father who is in heaven will enter. Verse 22 many will say to me on that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name cast out demons in your name perform many miracles. Verse 23 and then I will declare to them, I never knew you depart for me, you who practice lawlessness. So, apparently, according to Jesus, we can call him Lord, we can prophesy in his name we can cast out demons in his name perform many miracles. All you do all these great things we think are doing and then we stand be for him. She can say to us. I never knew you depart for me, you who practice lawlessness is the practicing the unrepentant practicing of sin, lawlessness, that is the differentiation so that that's why we have to even asked this question a man who who speaks about God Ravi Zacharias was he actually right with God because there's no report, no evidence that there was that there was ever any repentance he he was practicing. This is a pattern of his life for year after year after year with no end point of saying how hot I got a come clean on this before God and men.
