As Christians, we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that our Lord Jesus died so that we might have eternal life. A simple gift, which is the most profound gift ever given to anyone, seems so hard and so complicated for some to understand. Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”John 14:6 , Acts 13:38-39.
Our Heavenly Father offers us individual salvation, a choice one must freely make. “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. For the Scripture says, “Everyone who believes in him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 10:9-13 ,2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” 2 Corinthians 5:17, Ephesians 1:13-14.
More and more, it is becoming clear that there are fewer people than one might think who believe the United States was truly a Godly nation at one time. We have and are becoming an ever-growing immoral nation. Regretfully, more and more people are placing their trust in government and not in the one true God, as they should.
“Collective Salvation” is just another heresy of the last days. There are many being led astray by false prophets. Recently, President Obama, made made a speech regarding “collective salvation.” How many are being led astray by him? If this demonic doctrine were true, in order for me to achieve salvation in Jesus, everyone must be in agreement in the means of salvation and the works that associate themselves with it. This belief is central to a Marxist, social gospel in the 21st Century.
Folks, we are sliding down a very slippery slope and we must be on guard at all times. As Christians, we SHOULD know that we receive individual salvation. Our salvation is never tied to whether anyone else agrees with God, with His Word or with any works. Salvation is given freely and by the Grace of God, we are saved.
Jesus warned us that many would come in His name, and that they would preach another gospel to lead others astray. No doctrine that teaches any way to salvation other than through Jesus Christ is true. I thank God that I don’t have to place my trust in anyone else in order to receive the blessing of salvation.
Collective salvation throws away individual responsibility. But the Bible constantly talks about individual responsibility, especially in regard to salvation. We will not stand collectively in front of the throne of judgment, we will each answer for our individual actions. The American president is putting forth a strange doctrine which denies the truth of the Bible.
According to scripture there is one way for salvation and that is through Jesus Christ. I would ask Mr. Obama if his belief is aligned with that? We are warned of those who go after strange gods and theologies because they [those who adhere to these teachings] are led astray by their own lusts for power, greed, and fleshly desires.
Collective salvation, if promoted and followed , will lead to a world elite forcing this salvation on every human being. We are experiencing more and more misinformation being given out by churches, colleges and our government. This most-recent incident underscores the times in which we live. A government that tries to bring about a divine salvation will be (and is) demonic. Satan has been very busy because he knows his time is growing short. Remember, it was satan himself who convinced Adam and Eve that they didn’t need to obey God’s rules because they could know good and evil like God, if they took the forbidden fruit. In other words, Adam and Eve were making a choice to put faith in themselves, instead of God. They did things their own way, apart from the will of God. And so we find ourselves at the place we are today in history. We’ve almost come full circle. God will restore the earth and fellowship with those who put their faith in Him, very soon.
Israel, segments of Christians in America and other parts of the world are the biggest enemies of collective salvation teachings. If they believe in God and live by His teachings (and Israel will turn back to their true God), everything they hold dear goes against the Marxist world government that is upon each and every one of us today. God is using some in the media [whether they realize it or not] to emphasize His message in the last days. One very popular radio host and television host recently called for a mighty “revival” in the United States and spoke about how “social justice” is directly against the teachings of Christ. He went on to outline why socialism and Christianity cannot possibly coexist.
Socialism is economic control of the people by a government. In a socialist country, the state is all-powerful. Such a government views itself, not God, as the ultimate authority in all things. It is not surprising that the Communist Manifesto calls for abolishing family, marriage, countries and religion, as well as private property. Under the socialist system, the state determines what is right and what is wrong, without any competing loyalties to God, family, or country.
It is important to note the religious indoctrination of our current president. He speaks perfect Arabic, knows the teachings of Islam very well and has said in an interview with The New York Times, that “…the Muslim call to prayer is one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.” The New York Times also noted that Mr. Obama recited, “with a first class (Arabic) accent,” the opening lines of the Muslim call to prayer:
Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme! I witness that there is no god but Allah I witness that there is no god but Allah I witness that Muhammad is his prophet…
I believe those of us who are called by God understand fully what is taking place here. The mistreatment of the Nation of Israel and Christian values in this country are evidence of the disdain Mr. Obama and most in Congress have for the Judeo-Christian way of life. Islam has a history of reducing the “infidels” to third world status, and in most cases, infidels are brought to death. Therefore, collective salvation and Islam have similarities that the disobedient must be taken out of the way in order for the betterment of society.
