That's What You Have to Do to Be Saved!

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.  For the Scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed.  For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon Him.  For whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved.  Romans, Chapter 10, verses 9-13.

The Bible doesn’t say, “People who do nice things for others,” are saved.  It doesn’t say, “People of only a particular ethnic background,” are saved.  It doesn’t say, “Whoever uses the god-power within them is saved.”  It doesn’t say, “People who believe in God as they understand Him,” are saved.  It doesn’t say, “Whoever thinks positively” or “wills things” is saved.
It does say in verse nine: 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.”
Pure and simple, that’s what you have to do to be saved!
