By the faith alone!
He who believes in the Son has eternal life. John
The one who does so and so, says the human being in its
spiritual darkness, and so the one «prophet» after the other stands
forth throughout the history, and has got the answer to exactly what you
must do to be saved! Such is millions and millions of people led into
the devils deceit and slavery.
No, the one who believes in the Son! - That is what the Scripture
Yes, but we have to believe at least! No, the Christian faith is
not a deed which is rewarded with salvation, but a gift! (Eph. 2:8).

What is it that causes that you get confidence and trust in a
person? Is it just because you have decided to do so? No, of course not,

Why wander away from Him then, when it is like a singer says: «Nobody
needs to be lost?»
Many does - that is unfortunately true - but nobody needs
to; that is true also!
Place yourself under the influence of the Word of God today, and
you will see, and you shall be saved!
