I’m sure all of you are familiar with those people out there who have a form of godliness, as II Timothy 3:5 calls it. These would be your “Christians in name only”. As I was writing the intro to my new book, I listed the things we never saw but accept as faith, the same components which make up the mystery of godliness.
Sure, someone might say, “I believe in God”.
But the real question is… do they believe in the mystery of godliness?
I Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
Because it’s not solely believing in God that saves a person. It’s believing certain things about God that saves a person, namely that He died, was buried, and rose again on the third day according to the Scriptures. That presumes one believes Jesus is God.Romans1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
