The social gospel is a deadly disease for “people of faith.” It reinforces the belief that salvation can be attained by doing good works, putting aside differences for the common good, treating others the way we want to be treated, acting morally, ethically, and sacrificially – and that doing so will endear humans to God. No. These are self-deceptive religious works that spurn God’s salvation, deny His perfect standard, and reject His perfect justice. Salvation is“not of works, lest any man should boast.” In fact, it is “by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
...What does it profit the billions of "people of faith" who may alleviate some of the world's symptoms yet lose their very souls?"
