Salvation
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye
may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
[Romans 12:2] [KJV]

Salvation is a pretty important topic for anyone who believes a supreme being created the heavens and earth and that it didn't all just appear as a result of a 'Big Bang' somewhere in outer space and then 'evolve' through some mysterious 'survival of the fittest' natural selection mutation process over the following millenniums (i.e. dumb luck and chance). If you don't believe in Intelligent Design (ID) then please click along to something that may interest you. If, however, you are here because you are concerned about whether or not you are 'saved', read on.

Although many brands of Christianity teach various ways to 'get saved' I believe the operative verse in scripture that speaks most clearly on this subject is Romans 10:9 & 10:

"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (KJV)

"That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." (NIV)

There is pretty simple, actually, but if you don't know who the Lord Jesus is you'll have to become familiar enough with him to reach a point in your understanding and thinking where you can make a considered decision to confess him as Lord. There's plenty to read to help you get to know him, starting of course with the Bible, but here's a link that will get you started in this regard:

Who is Jesus Christ?

You'll notice that when you comply with verse 10 above you are NOT confessing your sins as some people would have you do. You are instead confessing our savior from sin, the Lord Jesus Christ. Isn't that refreshing and delivering? We have all sinned and come short of the glory of God so we need a savior from sin, a perfect sacrifice to God for all of our sins.

No, confessing Jesus as Lord does NOT mean you are confessing him as God. Jesus is not God, he's the only begotten son of God - just like it says in the Bible. Click here to see why the words Lord and God are not synonymous.
