We hate the world's religion!
The following is from Spurgeon’s sermon,
"JESUS, THE SHEPHERD" No. 652. Isaiah 40:11.
"The Church is in the desert now.
We have left the world- we have left
its maxims, its customs, its religion.
We hate the world's religion
as much as we do its irreligion."
Editor's note– Biblical Christianity is the ONLY
religion to teach salvation by grace alone,
obtained without any human merit whatsoever.
All other religions teach that salvation is somewhat
dependent on human merit. The reason why Scripture
is so adamant in denouncing these false religious
systems is because they dishonor God by rejecting
His only way of salvation, and effectually damn the
eternal souls of their adherents.
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--
and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--
not by works, so that no one can boast." Ephesians 2:8-9
"No! We believe it is through the grace of our Lord
Jesus that we are saved, just as they are." Acts 15:11
"He saved us, not because of the good things we did,
but because of his mercy." Titus 3:5
"But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach
a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let
him be eternally condemned! As we have already said,
so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a
gospel other than what you accepted, let him be
eternally condemned!" Galatians 1:8-9
