While attending King’s Fest, I saw this tag on the girl sitting in front of me. I took a picture of it because I had never seen anything like this. It turns out to be a scapular. I was really sad when I read the words on it. I wondered if this girl really thought she wouldn’t see eternal fire if she was wearing this scapular when she died? There is only one way to be saved from eternal fire:
JESUS IS THE ONLY ACCEPTABLE OBJECT OF SAVING FAITH
Some people think it doesn’t matter what you believe as long as you’re sincere. But without a valid object your faith is useless.
If you take poison–thinking it’s medicine–all the faith in the world won’t restore your life. Similarly, if Jesus is the only source of salvation, and you’re trusting in anyone or anything else for your salvation, your faith is useless.
Many people assume there are many paths to God and that each religion represents an aspect of truth. But Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me” (John 14:6). He didn’t claim to be one of many equally legitimate paths to God, or the way to God for His day only. He claimed to be the only way to God–then and forever.
Please see the complete tract here at Grace to You to learn more about the true way of salvation.
I pray that this girl will come to know that wearing something or doing something is not going to save her, only trust in Christ alone will save her.
