Question 2: It is said in the Bible, “Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifies. Who is he that condemns?” (Rom 8:33–34). This proves that the Lord Jesus’ crucifixion on the cross forgives us of all sin. The Lord doesn’t see us as sinners any more. Who can accuse us now?

Answer: It’s written in the Bible, “Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect?” Here, we must be very clear. Who, exactly, are members of God’s elect? Those frequent sinners, they who sell out the Lord and their friends, they who steal the offerings to God, fornicators, the timid, and the hypocritical Pharisees, are they God’s elect? If anyone that believes in God is part of God’s elect, then how do we explain what Revelation says, “For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and fornicators, and murderers, and idolaters, and whoever loves and makes a lie”? Therefore, not all people that believe in God are part of God’s elect. Only those who really serve the Lord and love God, those that bear true witness to Him are part of God’s elect. For example, Abraham, Job, and Peter obeyed God and revered God. They had righteous deeds and bore good witnesses. What they did obtained God’s approval. No one could accuse them. When did God say that all the faithful were righteous? The majority of them often sin, resist God, and betray God. That is a fact. The Lord Jesus never said the majority of believers were righteous. Therefore, God’s elect refer to those who have righteous deeds and can follow God’s will.

Previous: Question 1: The Bible says, “For with the heart man believes to righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made to salvation” (Rom 10:10). We have already been saved through our faith in Jesus. Once we’re saved, we’re eternally saved. When the Lord arrives we will definitely be able to enter the kingdom of heaven.

Next: Question 3: It’s written, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus …” (Rom 8:1). Because we believe in Christ Jesus, it has already been guaranteed that we won’t be condemned and can enter the kingdom of heaven!

Question 5: Paul said in 2 Timothy 3:16: “All scripture is given by inspiration of God….” This shows that everything in the Bible is the word of God. But there are actually people who say that not everything in the Bible is the word of God. Isn’t this denying the Bible and deceiving people?

Almighty God says, “In truth, with the exception of the books of prophecy, the Old Testament is mostly a historical record. Some of the New Testament epistles derive from human experiences, others from the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit; the letters of Paul, for instance, are from human work, and they were all enlightened by the Holy Spirit. These letters, which Paul sent to the churches, offer words of exhortation and encouragement to the brothers and sisters there; they are not the words of the Holy Spirit. Paul could not speak on behalf of the Holy Spirit. He was not a prophet, and moreover he did not see visions. These letters were written to the churches of that time in Ephesus, Philadelphia, Galatia, and other places.”

Question 2: Pastors and elders often read the scriptures and preach to people, pray for brothers and sisters, have love for believers and ask people to hold on to the Bible. If we say they are hypocritical Pharisees, most believers will not be able to see through or distinguish. Then please communicate to us in more detail.

Almighty God says, “If your intention is not to submit to Him but you have an ulterior motive, then what you say and do, even the prayers you say to God, your every act, will be viewed as resisting to God. Even if you speak tenderly, act with a mild manner, your actions and expressions appear appropriate to others, and you give an impression that you submit to God, yet judging from your intention and your viewpoint of belief, all you do is against God, and is evil. ”
