Jonah 3:10, "And God saw THEIR WORKS, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not."
Titus 3:5, “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;”
The Bible in no uncertain terms says that God's free gift of eternal life is WITHOUT WORKS. The deadly mindset of the cults has crept into most Baptist churches nowadays, which has corrupted these churches so that they now are also CULTS! What saith the Scripture? ...
Romans 4:3-5, “For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.”
The Bible verses that you just read are quoted from the Old Testament concerning Abram (whose name was later changed by God to Abraham)...
Genesis 15:6, “And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.”
People in the Old Testament, before and under the Mosaic Covenant, were ALL saved the same exact way that people get saved today thousands of years later, which is by grace through faith in Christ. Acts 10:42, “To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.” Abraham was saved by faith alone, without WORKS! Romans 4:4 plainly teaches that if salvation had been by works, then it would have been of DEBT and not by GRACE. Dear friend, God has never owed a debt of salvation to any wicked human being (and we are all wicked - Romans 3:19-23). Turning away from your sins and evil ways is WORKS according to God in Jonah 3:10.
The following is a helpful video which exposes Evangelist Ken Ham as a false prophet! ...
The FALSE GOSPEL of ANSWERS IN GENESIS and KEN HAM
Sadly, the wicked Campus Church at Pensacola Christian College (PCC) promotes infidel Ken Ham to all their thousands church members and students. RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!! When I attended Campus Church in 2021, they showed Ken Ham's Young Earth Creation (YEC) series all summer long for Wednesday night Bible study. It upsets me when incompetent pastors, like the Bozo clowns at PCC, play video tapes of other preachers instead of doing their own Bible study. Ken Ham DOESN'T rightly divide the Word of Truth, he is WRONG on the Gospel.
Tragically, The Crown College in Powell, Tennessee also promotes Ken Ham. SHAME on Pastor Clarence Sexton. I am not trying to be unkind, but success and prosperity has ruined Pastor Sexton, so that he no longer contends for the Christian faith as he once did decades ago. RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!! Clarence Sexton recently took a lucrative vacation to England, and not too long before that Israel. Pastor Sexton is living large off the ministry. So also is Pastor Jeff Redlin at Campus Church at PCC living large, parasiting off the ministry.
All of these men get paid a sickening 6-DIGIT annual salary, four times what the average U.S. citizen earns in a year!!! I have a problem with that. What happened to being a servant? Matthew 23:11, “But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.” Sadly, the pastors who are the most successful in this world, do the least to contend for the Christian faith (Jude 1:3). Prosperity, fame and financial wealth have destroyed more preachers than all their hardships, afflictions and enemies combined. SHAME on Temple Baptist Church in Powell (right outside of Knoxville), Tennessee and their Crown College! SHAME on them for promoting a religious con man who preaches another Gospel.
Dear friend, there are NOT two plans of salvation (Galatians 1:6-7). You either must turn away from your sinful bad habits as a second step to be saved, in addition to faith; or else you do not, but it absolutely cannot be both. Romans 11:6, “And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.” What Ken Ham is preaching is NOT God's grace. When you attack the grace of God, you attack the God of grace!!! SHAME on PCC for promoting Ken Ham and his Young Earth Creation (YEC) circus. There is no evidence in the Bible to support a YEC, but there is plenty to substantiate an Old Earth Creation (OEC).
According to Ken Ham, faith in the GOOD NEWS of Jesus Christ crucified, buried and risen the third day is NOT enough to get to Heaven. In addition, Ham says you must repent and turn away from your sinful ways. But what saith the Scripture?
Jonah 3:10, "And God saw THEIR WORKS, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not." God changed His mind (He repented) not to destroy Nineveh. But they didn't get saved by THEIR WORKS!!! The Bible doesn't say that the Assyrians got saved, it simply says that they turned away from their evil ways and God spared imminent destruction upon their nation. Judas also turned away from his evil ways (Matthew 27:3), even returning the 30 pieces of silver to the Pharisees which he had been paid to betray Jesus. Judas felt remorse, regret and reformation, but he never repented toward God to put his faith in Jesus. Turning away from sin is WORKS! Ken Ham is a hellbound false prophet!!!
SHAME on Pensacola Christian College and Crown College for promoting infidel Ken Ham, which confuses their students. In the preceding video, Ken Ham's employee even says that turning from sins is the "SECOND" thing you must DO to be saved. That is a counterfeit plan of salvation, which cannot produce the new birth. In God's plan of salvation, repentance is INCLUDED with believing on the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 16:30-31). If it weren't, then Paul and Silas would have told the Roman jailor that more than faith is required to be saved, but they didn't. They simply told the man to BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, and thou shalt be saved (Acts 16:31b). God does not save those who are trying to be saved, He only saves those who are trusting to be saved. Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith.
