Eternal Life

Neil Girrard

John wrote, “And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.”

The eternal life of God is to be found only in Christ Jesus, His Son. It is not found in us or in any other man who does not have Christ Jesus dwelling (living, abiding, remaining, reigning) in him. This is the gospel of the kingdom.

This simple statement shoots many “Christian” false practices and doctrines right in the heart of their deceptions. Consider these few:

This list could doubtless be extended but they represent enough of the core substitutionary practices afoot today that cause men to partake of a different Christ, a different gospel or a different spirit so as to be diverted away from the spiritual simplicity that is found in the real Christ. Any one who preaches or practices a gospel different from the gospel of the kingdom is eternally condemned. Anyone who preaches or practices lawlessness (whatever is right in one’s own eyes) and causes others to do the same will be eternally dismissed from the presence of Christ.

If the gospel we preach or practice enables us to find our “life” in any other source than Christ alone, or it allows us to spend our life on things, comforts and pleasures rather than in the pursuit of Christ in the way of the cross, or it lets us abandon, neglect or disdain the fatherless, widows and the poorest of Christ’s brothers, we have only attained to a false knowledge, a false hope and a false religion. Only those who find their life in Christ Himself (He who is the righteousness, truth, way, life and express image of God) - those who expend their life in obediently taking up their cross, denying themselves and following Christ alone, those who truly love their neighbors as they love themselves and their Christian and even their worldly human brothers as Christ loved them - are the true followers of Christ. All else are mere counterfeits or dupes of a religious deception.

Let he who has ears hear.
