  1. Amen Brother
    Acts 4:12– Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
    The scriptures are very clear that Jesus Christ is the only way to Heaven and the true savior. Jesus is the only one that can forgive you of your sins, the only one that can give you the holy spirit, the only way to the father. If Jesus was just a way or they were multiple ways to the Kingdom, like our works.. then the Gospel would be a fraud. The whole bible would be a lie. The gospel represents victory, redemption and hope. Only through the blood of Christ we can receive the gift of everlasting life.

  2. Faith vs. Works – Judgment and salvation determined by one's actual behavior (the direct evidence of true faith)



    By the authority of our Father in Heaven, Christ and the angels shall judge every man according to his works – Matthew 16:2


    Faith alone, without works to show for it, is dead and worthless – James 2:17, James 2:20, James 2:26


    Prove your repentance with good works -Acts 26:20


    Christ:  “If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them” – John 13:17


    We save ourselves by pondering the doctrine and doing it – 1 Timothy 4:16


    Saying you know Christ but fail to live the commandments makes you a liar – 1 John 2:3-6


    Belief in Christ alone is not enough, even the Devil himself also believes in Christ but is still damned – James 2:19-20


    We are saved by Christ's grace, but only after being judged by our works – Titus 3:5, Titus 1:16, Rev. 22:12-14


    Christ will purify unto himself his elect people ("a peculiar people who are zealous of good works") – Titus 2:14


    Judgment and salvation are both determined by our works (works only take place if faith already exists) – Rev. 20:11-15


    Christ's reward for each man is based on each man's works – Rev. 22:12


    It profits a man nothing if he has faith without works – James 2:14


    "Doers" of the word are saved, those who are "hearers" only are deceiving themselves – James 1:22 (see all of 1:21-27)


    Anyone can have faith alone, but one's true faith is shown by his actual works and deeds – James 2:18


    Christ states that his people do what he commands them – John 15:14


    Those who pose as Christians but fail to live up to it will not be forgiven, but abandonedby Christ – Mat. 7:21-23


    Christ states "If ye love me, keep my commandments", which rules out "saved by grace alone" – John 14:15


    There is a relationship between faith, works and grace, Judgment based on good works and deeds – Rev. 22:12-14


    Christ's grace is not an excuse for sin and we are judged by our actions and works – Rev. 22:12-14


    Christ proves mankind's own perception of salvation is dangerously wrong – 1 Corinthians 1:19-29


    Worldly people despise Christ's true plan of salvation and dangerously invent their own – 1 Cor. 1:19-29


    Christ states the importance of keeping the commandments for eternal life – Matthew 19:16-17


    Always keeping the commandments is a required way of living – Deu. 11:1


    Salvation only occurs after death,and only for those who lived righteously after accepting Christ – it is impossible to be “saved” while still in this life, which is a false doctrine



    Christ directly states that you must endure to the end before salvation can be applied to your life – Matthew 24:13


    We are saved by Christ's grace, but only after being judged by our works – Titus 3:5, Titus 1:16, Rev. 22:12-14


    Perform the Lord’s statutes even until the end – Psalms 119:112


    Worldly people despise Christ's true plan of salvation and dangerously invent their own – 1 Cor. 1:19-29


    We save ourselves by pondering the doctrine and doing it – 1 Timothy 4:16

  3. What a narrow-minded opinion. And you talk about wasting your life and wasting your time about preaching on this. You come up with evidence that Jesus is the only way and I'm certain that all walks of faith and non-faith will come to you. Other than that, your words are pointless Mr. Pastor Greg Locke. Keep the merry, and ditch the myth!

  4. You were on track until you added repenting of sin along with the death, burial and resurrection. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO TURN FROM SIN TO BE SAVED! Jesus paid it all so belief and confession with thy mouth that Jesus is Lord is how the Bible tells us to be saved

  5. "I and my Father are one. Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him."
    John 10.30-31

    "If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him. Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand,"
    John 10.37-39

    "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him."
    John 14.6-7

    "But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God."
    1 Corinthians 1.23-24

    "And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God."
    1 Corinthians 2.1-5

    "Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law."
    Luke 12.51-53

    "Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water."
    1 Peter 3.20

    "And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned."
    Mark 16.15-16

  6. John 14:6 the bell that will toll upon the death of a weakening Christianity. The most misunderstood passage in the Bible. And the battle cry of Christian fundamentalism will be its swan song. You cannot read the Bible in a philosophical and historical vacuum. This guy is not qualified to interpret and teach the Bible. You are doing more harm than good. For the love of God please stop.

  7. Amen and big Amen. Preach. May our loving God and Saviour Jesus Christ bless you.

    Jesus Christ is the one and only true God and Saviour. The only true Messiah, the son of God. God Almighty in flesh who existed before time Began. Father, son, holy spirit one God Almighty.

    The Lord Jesus is the only way to heaven. The only one who can wash us clean. The only one who can save us from hell. Amen.

  8. I'm going straight to heaven as I have a direct connection and relationship wth my creator who is called YHWH. Noody need a middle man to connect you to your Father. This is how I understand what Jesus meant. I don't think Jesus was so arrogant that He saw himself as a God!

  9. Amen to what you said about Jesus being the one and only way I also look at it like this if Jesus said it that settles it whether anybody believes it or not he made it as plain as day. He said I am the way the truth and the life.No one comes to the father except by him.(Meaning Jesus). Thank you for putting the truth out there. Anyone that knows and has read that passage of scripture and they do not understand the simple truth it is because they don't have the spiritual eyes to see and hear what Jesus was saying. In other words they have not been born again. More importantly is that they don't have the spirit of God within them. Thank you for putting the truth out there we live in a generation where this dispensation is the dispensation of knowledge or of information the sad part is there is not enough truth out there in the realm of information. There is a vast amount of information out there but most of the information that's out there and the knowledge that some people think they have are nothing but lies so thanks for shining the light in a dark world and putting the truth out there
